  • Hofner Guitars 457

    Hofner Guitars 457 - "Vintage 'modern' Hofner" has images


    I really wanted a Gibson 335 and hankered for years; then the 80s arrived and suddenly all the old and unloved semi acoustics were being touted about by the new British Invasion so anything was game. I spied my E457 on a back wall of Kingfisher Mu…

  • Mooer 009 Blacknight

    Mooer 009 Blacknight - "Mooer micro preamp 009 -ENGL Blackmore review" has images


    The Mooer micro preamp 009 -ENGL Blackmore is a great preamp! The cleans are fuller than most and the Hi Gain channel is articulate and bright. I compaired it to my AMT Elect E-1 (ENGL Fireball -JFET preamp) and found it to be very dynamic. Awsome va…

  • Pignose G40V

    Pignose G40V - "Better than a Bassman !" has imagescontains audio examples


    In 2007 I bought mine new/old stock (in UK) as my then also new Fender Bassman had to go back under warranty, In the cross-over between having them side by side, the Pig gave more of what I had hoped to get from the Bassman! Consequently I moved on t…

  • Vox AV30

    Vox AV30 - "Just great!"


    I’ve had it for 4 days, of course an update will follow if need be. This is an all-analog amp, with a 12ax7 preamp tube and a 12ax7 power tube. As the original output must be around 1 watt, its re-amplified with a solid state processor for a final 3…

  • Dreadbox Erebus

    Dreadbox Erebus - "A real chameleon with a vintage, mellow sound"


    The Dreadbox Erebus is a very interesting synth hailing from… Greece! It’s a monophonic/paraphonic, 2-voice and semi modular model. Granted, its look is quite peculiar but I really like it, plus it seems sturdy. It’s a rather basic memoryless syn…

  • Seymour Duncan SPH90-1 Phat Cat

    Seymour Duncan SPH90-1 Phat Cat - "Phat Cats in my Les Paul Copy - From Average guitar to Great guitar" has images


    I found a set of these pickups going for around $45 on ebay and they had never been fitted in any guitar so essentially I got them brand new. This was the deal of the century. I was actually on the lookout for humbuckers until I came across these. …

  • Farfisa Louvre

    Farfisa Louvre - "Music Circus! A large and good analog combo" has images


    A real mammoth that I found out of order at a pawnshop and managed to refurbish: partytime! It’s an organ/ string machine/ piano/ harpsichord/ synth/ drum machine all-analog combo with a vertical acoustic Leslie-style processor and a spring reverb! E…

  • Gibson Derek Trucks Signature SG

    Gibson Derek Trucks Signature SG - "The sound of the Allmans, of the Susan Tedeshi's Band or AC/DC... so so!"


    Gibson SG Derek Trucks, tried it in a store but did not buy it. Tried on a modern Marshall halfstack with clean and crunch channels, with a fender hot rod, a fender Princeton reverb, a 65 deluxe reverb. I've tried it for half an hour. This instrum…

  • M-Audio Solaris

    M-Audio Solaris - "Excellent Mic at any Price"


    I've run studios for decades and had/used/auditioned many, many mics from very spendy ones (U47, U67, RCA 77 etc) to cheap ones. The Solaris is a very good sounding LDC. I prefer the frequency response in figure 8 mode. Sounds even smoother with that…

  • Fender Richie Kotzen Stratocaster

    Fender Richie Kotzen Stratocaster - "An interesting finding" has images


    I discovered this little wonder by pure chance… and I essentially was conquered by its look ! I know, how weak of me… Now, you must admit that its flame top red finish and golden hardware do look great! You have to see and touch it with your own e…
