  • Hiwatt T20 Head

    Hiwatt T20 Head - "Carve your own sound!!"

    04/20/18

    An excellent amp with a clean, very versatile sound. The settings (and especially the EQ) allow you to really carve your very own sound. However, it’s not a channel strip and the amp still has its own sonic identity. True to Hiwatt’s reputation, it...

  • Greco SE 600

    Greco SE 600 - "A great 40-year-old Strat" has images

    04/20/18

    A Japan-made guitar from 1976, before the Super Real era. This is the series which awoke Fender’s wrath, ultimately leading to the brand being bought up by the US manufacturer. SE600 Super Sound model. The guy i got it from sold it as an SE800 ...

  • Gibson LPJ - Rubbed Gold Top/Dark Back

    Gibson LPJ - Rubbed Gold Top/Dark Back - "Gibson’s sound and legend are not so expensive. However..."

    04/18/18

    Hi all! Let me share my opinion on this Gibson which i’ve now been a lucky owner for a little over a month. The overall presentation of the guitar can be found almost anywhere else, so I’ll concentrate on what its pros and cons are, at least acco...

  • Maton Mini Maton Diesel Special EMD/6

    Maton Mini Maton Diesel Special EMD/6 - "An excellent small guitar that can compete with the big boys" has images

    04/17/18

    I was after a second guitar to bring with me everywhere, my primary instrument being a Martin HD-28. I first took interest in a parlor model (Takamine New Yorker), then a Faith Venus electric acoustic. I soon sold both of them back, as the parlor di...

  • Carl Martin Red Repeat 2016 Edition

    Carl Martin Red Repeat 2016 Edition - "Red Repeat Offers Incredible Delay/Echo Quality" has images

    04/16/18

    SOUND: I REALLY like this pedal. The echo in the Red Repeat is reminiscent of the Echoplex and Space Echo units of yesteryear, but with obvious improved clarity and with today’s technology. Below is a sound sample demo video (including an instrume...

  • Marshall Code 25

    Marshall Code 25 - "Many sounds in a small, lightweight box"

    04/16/18

    The title sums up why I couldn’t resist this new Marshall… in a 25-watt version. First of all, it doesn’t take much space up – and when you add up several other pieces of gear space definitely IS a factor… Then, I won’t compare it with the original ...

  • NK Forster Guitars Model C-HO

    NK Forster Guitars Model C-HO - "Perfect for DADGAD"

    03/28/18

    I ordered this guitar specifically for playing Celtic finger-style in DADGAD tuning and its intonation is superb. Also, for the same reason, I ordered a 650mm scale length. The design of the guitar means it has a 'cylinder' Italian spruce top and dou...

  • Carl Martin DC-Drive 2017

    Carl Martin DC-Drive 2017 - "Make Any Amp Sound Better!" has images

    03/28/18

    SOUND: Below is a video demo that utilizes a Taurus amplifier, but also various amp simulations (via Positive Grid’s Bias 2), and later the Carvin Legacy (Vai) Drive. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-S2R4l4jZMQ&feature=youtu.be After listeni...

  • Ibanez RG721FM

    Ibanez RG721FM - "Beautiful, pleasant to play and versatile"

    03/27/18

    First, I’ll mention that I’m not a professional guitarist, so please take this review as that of an average player. I’ve used this guitar in my home studio for composing and demoing (direct in, with no amp). I bought it for that purpose as it had ...

  • DOD Looking Glass Overdrive

    DOD Looking Glass Overdrive - "Well done, DOD!"

    03/23/18

    I’ve used it on a 1966 Princeton amp with a single-coiled guitar. I’ve owned quite a load of ODs and boosts, yet this one is one of the best I’ve come across. I’ve always loved asymmetrical clipping, and the videos convinced me (especiallt that by ...
