Fender Announces New Pedal Range

Friday, 23 February 2018 11:10:51 AM Australia/Sydney

NAMM Show 2018 has given us another huge shakeup to the guitarist’s landscape, with Fender (a brand you may have heard of dominating the electric guitar scene, and shaping rock, blues, and all other contemporary music as we know it), with THAT fender, releasing a serious, and professional range of guitar pedals covering all the most important food groups:

The great Level Set Buffer (with level, Hi-Freq trim, passive/active load, and mute); 
’The Bends’ - a compressor with clever recovery-time adjust, and wet/dry blend; 
The Santa Ana overdrive pedal, which runs FET technology, has British and US voicing modes and responds amazingly to a guitar’s volume control;
The Pugilist, dual distortion, with gain stage layering, bass boost, and ability to blend in clean signal, to bring out the clarity of attack tone
The Mirror Image delay, which has delay tails continuing after the pedal is bypassed - something I’ve never heard of in ANY other delay pedal
and the Marine Layer reverb, with rich shimmer atmospheres, as well as hall and room, and a Reverb-tail carry-over, as well

These all are built to a quality and standard that does an already-legendary brand proud, and are destined to become an irreplaceable part of every guitarist’s collection.

Daniel of Silent Underground Studio & HEADRUSH

Wednesday, 14 February 2018 3:23:09 PM Australia/Sydney

Have you heard the amazing chameleon work from Daniel of Silent Underground Studio?

he’s made a huge name for himself creating stunning exact tone clones of famous artists, albums, and bands, and by a crazy attention to detail, replicates exactly the amp, amp settings, valve types, cabinet, speaker types, microphone placement, reverb, delay, modulation, and more and more and more until the final effect is so perfect that an audio engineer could examine the waveform and not tell them apart.

It’s really an amazing talent, that requires an incredible knowledge of how every part of a guitar rig works, every effect, every setting, and then the amazing ears to hear it on an album, and recreate it from scratch. He’s released these patches for Fractal, for the Kemper, and now he’s bringing his sorcery to the Headrush pedal board, and has just announced an upcoming release, a full package of tones from all of Metallica’s top tracks!

Already the HeadRush PedalBoard is turning heads for its quad processing, effect trails, and ease of use (touchscreen OR foot operated), and this looks like a really exciting next step in watching it become a must-have piece of equipment in any serious set-up

Check out his upcoming metallica tone demos and his previous work in the links below!

HeadRush Announces new FRFR112 Speaker

Wednesday, 14 February 2018 2:55:36 PM Australia/Sydney

Headrush are not slowing down for one second, and are following up the hugely successful release of it’s all-in-one pedalboard last year with the announcement and impending released of a speaker that is specifically designed to be the perfect choice to run it through, or to run  any other amp modeller or multi-FX!

The FRFR-112 is a powered speaker cabinet with a massive 2000 watts of output power, and is touted as a ‘Full Range, Flat Response” speaker - this has been carefully, and painstakingly built to give you as exact a replication of your sound as it’s possible to get. No amp colour, no flavour, no change at all.

This is the kind of precise, bright response across the full frequency range that you’d expect to see in a recording studio, or Audiophile environment, and comes in a quite portable 12” woofer and 1.5” tweeter. 

It’s pole mountable, has two combination XLR/TRS inputs, and has a balanced XLR output, to run into the Front-Of-House mixer, or link up with additional FRFR-112 cabinets, and at only 16kg, weighs less than HALF what my current amplifier weighs!

Fender Hot Rod IV Series Have Landed In Store

Tuesday, 6 February 2018 2:53:31 PM Australia/Sydney

Fender have finally released their fourth series of the legendary Hot Rod amplifiers, and there’s already plenty to be gossiping about!

The Hot Rod series (15w Blues Junior, 15w Pro Junior, 40w Deluxe, and 60w DeVille) have long been renowned as THE gigging musicians amp, and that’s no exaggeration. If you’re a working musician, you already have these amps. And if you’re not, you’re either saving up for one, or wondering which amp will give you “that” sound in your head.

Do your research, and try as many brands out as you possibly can. But then try out a Fender Blues Junior, or a Hot Rod Deluxe, and you’ll have that wonderful warm feeling of realising that it was exactly what you’d been looking for all along.

These no-frills, no-nonsense amplifiers are simple, easy to use, and sound absolutely exceptional straight out of the box. They’re famous for their bright, sparkling tone, definition and articulation, and that’s exactly what they deliver, even with the overdrive cranked. Upgraded preamp, volume, and tone circuitry keep that high definition and clear quality at the most saturated of tones, and their upgraded Spring-Reverb circuit maintains it’s clarity across the board.

They all have Celestion A-Type speakers, except the Pro Junior, which carries a Jensen P10R, for a bit more bite at the top end, and regardless of whether you’re looking for your first amp, whether you need a perfect clean tone, or an amp that can ring true when stacked beneath 30 effects, there’s no question at all that these are the ones for you!

Roli Blocks LightPad M

Wednesday, 31 January 2018 11:42:06 AM Australia/Sydney

Roli have just released their new ‘Lightpad M’ block, and it’s a huge evolution on the previous models, that were already exciting and innovative already - the board is more touch-sensitive, allowing things like drumming and performance to be a lot more intuitive and clean, the lighting system is significantly brighter, enough for easy use in daylight or well-lit situations, and the touch pad is not only easier to track, with its improved grid system and subtle tactile cues, but also has, well, improved squishiness, allowing a sense of physical dynamic to your performance, too!

Couple this with the improvements to the NOISE software, the constant expanding sound packs, DAW compatibility, and more, and this is the cresting wave of the next generation of sound and DJ performance and production!

ESP Snapper Series Overview

Monday, 29 January 2018 9:14:46 AM Australia/Sydney

The ESP Snapper is one of their lesser-known models, and it’s sort of become known as an inside secret - while the Horizon and Eclipse models are flying out the door in high demand, the Snapper is not only a high-end, professional workhorse, but also a supremely flexible superstrat-style guitar, with immaculate construction, slender, satiny maple neck, wonderfully finished jumbo frets and a great line-up of HSS, SSS, and HH pickup configurations that really reach every conceivable situation.

When the alarms are ringing, and you only have time to snatch one of your weapons before leaping into battle, this is the one.

Whatever you need it to do, whatever job you’ve got lined up, it’s ready for you.

Universal Audio Enters Amplifier Attenuation... OX

Wednesday, 17 January 2018 3:18:05 PM Australia/Sydney

Universal Audio have branched out into amplifier attenuation, and if you already know about attenuation, if you’re familiar with Universal Audio’s incredible quality standards, then like me, you’re already excited, and saving up your pennies. If this is new to you, then your day is about to get a little brighter - you’re welcome!

Universal Audio is a brand that is well known throughout recording studios of all sizes and professions, for their incredible attention to detail in their preamps, audio interfaces, and especially their DSP effects and mixing/mastering software, and hearing them branch into something as analogue and practical as a high-powered amp attenuator is great news for the guitar community as a whole.

This box absorbs and actively balances the power and volume in your tube amplifier, allowing you to really drive the valves, and find the best tone it has, at any volume you want, right down to headphones!

We’ll do a full write-up of it soon, but you can already imagine how incredibly useful this is, for home practise, for rehearsal, for studio recording, for live performance, literally every time I’m playing, I need this involved. It’s also got some absolutely world-class speaker and mic modelling, for cabinet simulation, right up to the speaker break-up and cone cry of a really thrashed maxed-out amp, at any volume, without destroying your best speaker cabinet!

Keep your eyes peeled, and start putting your spare change aside, because when that shipment arrives, there’s going to be a queue (please keep it orderly), and I’m gonna be right there in it!

Stock is due to arrive late Feb 2018 so get your pre-orders in now

Foot Stomping Creativity

Tuesday, 16 January 2018 7:41:07 AM Australia/Sydney

This might sound like an admission of guilt, but when I started out gigging with my first live band, I didn’t really know what I was doing. 

Sometimes that meant knowing when to tune up, when to set up, when to stand quietly, but sometimes it meant I was doing big silly things like trying to step on five different FX pedals at once - I can remember a whole bunch of times I used to stand up on my wah pedal, so I could quickly press another three pedals without breaking my stride.

Broke that thing pretty quickly.

I had no idea that things like the BOSS MS-3 and ES-8 or ES-5 even existed - these clever things are designed to let you do exactly that, switch from one set of effects to another - turn on these three, turn off those two, have a slew of complex different pre-sets and move between them easily, without needing more legs and feet than the average.

If this sounds confusing or strange, keep it in the back of your head for now, and one day soon, when you’re trying to figure out how the heck to do what you’re trying to do, this’ll be the way.

Sometimes a multi-FX is a great answer, but sometimes you want to use your own favorited pedals, your boutique brands, and it’s good to know there IS a way to do it.

To Purchase: Boss MS-3 | Boss ES-5 | Boss ES-8

Korg's In-Ear Metronome Range

Monday, 15 January 2018 3:52:27 PM Australia/Sydney

Now and then I tell my students they really should get a Metronome. (Occasionally my band-mates, too.)

The bottom line is it doesn’t matter how fast you can play, if you can’t play in time with the rest of your band - what’s the point in that?

Now, students will often tell me they can get a free metronome app on their phone. And that’s great, I suppose, but phones are quiet, they chew through batteries, and if you want to practise with your amp turned on, or in a noisy environment, you might as well give up

Korg, though, has got you covered. They’ve got your back - the IE-1M, or ‘In-Ear Metronome’ is a tiny, light, earpiece metronome with variety of built in rhythms, beats, and super easy jog-wheel metronome function.

Not only that, but the SY-1M SyncMetronome is the same idea, but with each metronome able to synchronize through infra-red - give one to each member of your band for tight rehearsals. 30-piece marching band? 50-piece orchestra? 15-piece jazz-funk band? school band? Fire your conductor! Don’t even think twice! Kick them out!

No, of course not. But fitting your band each with synchronised earpiece metronomes will make the kind of difference that could be night and day for your rehearsals AND performances!
