A Wave of Saturation - Waves J37 Tape Review
As you probably have already noticed, tape saturation is really hip right now.

Can it stand out from the rest? That's what we are about to discover...
Make Your Mamma Proud - Palmer Mutterstolz Review
Back in the day when fluorescent colors were in fashion, amps resembled fridges, all the songs on the radio had a guitar solo after the second chorus, and the Berlin Wall was still standing (Bingo!, the '80s), German brand Palmer made a name for itself among guitar players with products such as the very popular PI-03 speaker simulator in rack fo...

Gibson's Fine Ear - Gibson N-225 Review
Gibson, to whom we own a lot of legendary guitars, decided to introduce several months ago a guitar with an original shape (something that doesn't happen every day): the N-225. With a hybrid look halfway between the SG, Les Paul standard and the ES series, we just couldn't resist it...
