  • Shure SM57

    Shure SM57 - "Excellent bang for the buck" has images


    I bought an SM57 primarily to record electric guitars. I spent hours with several other microphones and never really got a sound I was happy with until I tried the SM57. It was the clear winner after multiple position and amp setting checks. I …

  • Zvex Box of Rock (Vertical)

    Zvex Box of Rock (Vertical) - "Box of Rock gives you the 1966 Marshall JTM45 Amp Sound (Townshend/Hendrix)" has images


    SOUND: Certain guitars and amps have become desired collectables because they just happen to have gotten something right. The 1966 Marshall JTM45 amp head is such a beast. If unfamiliar with this amp simply think of early Pete Townshend and Jimi H…

  • Zvex Box of Metal Vexter

    Zvex Box of Metal Vexter - "Classic Metal with Box of Metal"


    SOUND: From a heavy pounding boom to a sizzle reminiscent of Dimebag, it’s possible to dial into several different tones with ZVEX’s Box of Metal. What really stands out about this pedal is how its heaviness still manages to cut through the mix inc…

  • Fostex FT17H

    Fostex FT17H - "Excellent Tweeter à Compression" has images


    J' utilise ces tweeters avec des 12" Alnico GAMMA, des AUDAX PR170ZO, les fréquences de coupure sont 600 Hz et 6000 Hz. Le rendement est élevé et le rendu sonore est très bon, pas métallique mais plutôt naturel, ils supportent très bien la puissance.…

  • TC Electronic Quintessence Harmonizer

    TC Electronic Quintessence Harmonizer - "Play Guitar Harmony Instantaneously" has images


    SOUND: Some pedals tend to get you more excited than others. The Quintessence Harmonizer is one of those pedals. Not only can it give your tone that added touch, thickness and dimension, as though playing with another guitarist, but TC Electronic …

  • Shift Line Astronaut V.2

    Shift Line Astronaut V.2 - "Astronaut A+ is a Deep Space Exploring Reverb"


    SOUND: I’m a sucker for ambient type music and pedals that help to produce that genre of music. The three major types of such pedals are modulation, delay and, of course, reverb. The Astronaut A+ (version 2) primarily is a reverb pedal, but the de…

  • EMG HA

    EMG HA - "EMG H: Possibly my favorite pickups... EVER!" has images


    I love the EMG S and SA pickups in my strats,so when I came across an OLD hardwired set of EMG H pickups I jumped on them and installed them in my DeArmond M65. I also installed a Bigsby B5. Well, these pickups transformed this guitar with the most …

  • Zvex '59 Sound Vertical

    Zvex '59 Sound Vertical - "'59 Sound Emulates 1959 Fender Bassman Perfectly!"


    SOUND: One of the most sought-after amps (combo in fact) is the 1959 Fender Bassman. Originally developed for the bass guitar, six-stringers began realizing how great it was for them – characteristics like responsiveness and that fat tube driven …

  • Seymour Duncan SSL-4 Quarter-Pound Flat

    Seymour Duncan SSL-4 Quarter-Pound Flat - "No strat 'quack'"


    I've had good experience with Seymour Duncan products, and bought these to go in my frankenstrat at neck and middle positions. I wanted something with that strat 'quack' but with more output to blend well with the humbucker in the bridge position. I …

  • Alesis QS8

    Alesis QS8 - "Great Value / almost perfect"


    I have been looking for a decent stage piano that can fill my needs for Rhodes, Wurly, Clavinet, and acoustic piano sounds. Being able to do some decent B-3 tones was not necessary but definitely a plus, as I have another keyboard that fills my need…
