Jake Bowen of Periphery talks about his signature Ibanez JBM100

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgyOLrYfUhs&w=760&h=428] I really like the look of Jake Bowen’s signature Ibanez JBM100.

I recently had the chance to see Periphery live and saw Jake in action w ...

DOD 280 Compressor (2014)

I love simple compressor pedals, it’s hard enough for guitarists to understand compression without a myriad of controls to twiddle. The updated DOD 280 Compressor has just two controls, Comp and Output. Even I can figure that one out! Turn the Comp knob to add the amount of compression you want and adjust the output level to taste. Like its predecessor, the DOD Compressor 280 (2014) offers independent Compr ...
