Electro-Harmonix Good Vibes Pedal

I love Vibe pedals, there is a tendency to launch into Bridge of Sighs by Robin Trower or maybe Machine Gun by Jimi Hendrix or a whole heap of Jimmy Page goodness as soon as you switch a Vibe pedal on, not that that is a bad thing. The sound of a Vibe pedal conjures up the essence of classic 60’s and 70’s Rock and yet it can be such an amazing inspirational tool for your own songwriting. Electro-Harmonix ha ...

Q-tuner Q2.0 SC Neodymium Single Coil Pickups

It’s been a while since I’ve seen any news from Q-tuner but I did post about the Q2.0 Neodymium magnet humbuckers back in May 2012 which look really cool.

DigiTech Trio Band Creator Pedal

The DigiTech TRIO pedal certainly made waves at NAMM 2015 winning the best in show award and you can see why it certainly is very clever, even if it has kind of taken some of the wind out of the sails of the recent Kickstarter success BeatBuddy.

New Gretsch Brian Setzer Guitar Models

I have to admit I don’t know much about Brian Setzer or his signature model Gretsch guitars but I seem to remember him playing pretty standard Gretsch guitar colours like the red and Chet Atkins style orange. For 2015 Gretsch are introducing a whole load of new colour options and I think they look pretty great such as the G6120SH Brian Setzer Hot Rod above in Harbor Blue 2-Tone with a Flame Maple top and th ...
