We have a lot of great gear in the store right now – these are our top picks for this month.
Eric Mardis – Radial Engineering Plexitube Distortion Pedal
I hate distortion pedals.Â I really really hate them.Â For really good high gain lead sounds or chunky metal rhythms, nothing sounds like as good as a high gain tube head.Â Enter Radial Engineering… this thing has an AX7 preamp tube in it and is voiced wonderfully!Â You can make a Fender Twin sound like a Marshall JCM 2000 (if that’s your thing).Â Â Two channels give you rhythm/lead flavor options and a serial effects loop allows your lead channel to have an “always on” external effect pedal in chain. Built like a Sherman tank.Â Awesome.Â Unless you still live at home with your mom, it’s time to step up to a real distortion pedal.
Jason Jones – Dr. Z Remedy Head
The first two we had sold pronto and we have more on the way. This super-responsive, super-articulate, plexi-style moderate gain rock machine, sporting 4 6v6 tubes and a bad attitude, can roar like a lion and purr like a kitten, all with a slight manipulation of your guitar’s volume knob. I was excited at the prospect of this particular Z amp and, alas, I was not disappointed. Also, the $1499 price tag is an added bonus as well!
Isaac Flynn – Don Grosh ElectraJet Standard
The Electrajet Standard is my employee pick. I love Grosh’s P90s, and the $1,699.00 is a penny well spent for a guitar this nice!
Anne Tangeman – Taylor GC3
This is just a fantastic guitar all the way around – great size, great feel, really nice sound – real elegance in the details but not showy. Very nice.
Matthew Khomsi – Sennheiser e908D Mic
Perfect for drums.
Garrett Childers – Nash Tele-Custom 63
Very cool relic. This sounds great and has a super comfortable feel.
