I’ve mentioned this in the past but one of the passions in my life is wine. To me, there is nothing like the taste of a gorgeous wine; a wine that fits perfectly with the venue, the food, the atmosphere. As I was contemplating this, as I am wont to do, I began thinking of […]

The other day, I had a plumber come to the house to replace several worn-out fixtures and replace some corroded pipes that were close to busting. Matt, the plumber, and his helper Cody replaced two bath and shower assemblies, and kitchen and bathroom faucets. Cody even had...

Like many other guitarists out there, I’ve spent countless hours and tens of thousands of dollars in my quest for “Tone,” that magical, elusive unicorn that guitarists seem to get so close to but can never touch, as it bounds away at the slightest disturbance, drawing the...

Summary: The T-Rex Quint Machine gives you four voices to work with simultaneously: Your dry signal, octave up, octave down, and a fifth (think “Yes'” “Owner of a Lonely Heart”). You can dial in the amount of the fifth, octave up and octave down to get just the balance you...

I went to see Phil Collins in concert last night. I had never seen him live, even when he was with Genesis, though I had all the Genesis albums and several Phil Collins albums. I just loved the music he wrote with Genesis and as a solo artist. Yeah, yeah, I know he’s not a...

Being a digital amp, like other digital devices, you can tweak the Katana to get the sounds tailored to your specifications. It’s super-easy to do with the simple and straight-forward user interface as shown below (this is a screenshot from my setup): Making adjustments here...

I could simply start off and say that after my church gig last night, the Katana 50 delivers on all fronts for me, and leave it at that. I could simply start off and say that all the dynamics that I was expecting were present in a big way, and leave it at that. I […]

Overdrive Creates Distortion Overdrive is the process of overloading a device and the end result – what you hear – is distortion. Here are the fundamental ways distortion is created. As I like to put it: overdrive is a verb, distortion is a noun. As you can see above, there...

I was talking to a sales guy in a shop and got into that age-old debate about overdrive vs. distortion and what they sound like. I’m not a mean person, so before he started flailing wildly, opining on how each sounds and the differences between soft clipping and square-wave...

Summary: The BeatBuddy revolutionized practice and even solo performance by providing great backing beats with its default set of beats. But with the Premium Library SD Card 2019, entire songs and even more beats extend the usability of this already incredible drum machine...

Back in the mid-70’s (gawd, I’m dating myself), Eddie Van Halen redefined how players approached playing the guitar. His tapping techniques and blindingly-fast fingerwork, not to mention his natural showmanship combined with a dynamic frontman, and a HUGE sound completely...

This is not a rant, though the beginning may seem like it… Nothing is easy. In fact, mastery of anything requires work. Hard work. But most people don’t want to do it. They want to take shortcuts. They want to reach stardom instantly. Why do you think shows like American...

I’m not much of demo guy. For sure, I do them, especially because the nature of this blog demands that I do. But gear like an amp is a tool, and trying to use that tool in isolation is a bit boring to me. So usually when I get some new gear, especially an amp, […]

I’ve been playing guitar for over 46 years, and no matter what might be in my signal chain, the difference-maker between sounding good and sounding great has ultimately lain with the guitar. To me, when you play a great guitar, it can bring the best out of any signal chain;...

Amazing. I’ve posted more in the last two days than in past several months… Oh well, being sick and at home allows me to do some catching up…

Summary: The littlest brother of the BOSS Katana line of amps, this amp packs heaps of tone and dynamics comparable to a valve amp. But instead of trying to cop the sound and feel of a tube amp platform, the Katana has a sound all its own, providing the characteristics one...

Conceivably, all capos operate pretty much the same way: Place the capo at a fret position and go. I’ve played with many capos over the years, starting out with the traditional folk guitar, elastic strap capo, then moving to Shubb then most recently, Kyser capos, of which I...

Or… this could be called Confessions of a Tube Amp Snob… For the past decade or so, I’ve been a complete devotee of the tube amp. I’ve literally got 10 of them, and believe it or not, I still use most of them. In my mind, there has really been nothing like the feel and […]

I’ve tended to focus on electric guitar in this blog over the years as it started out as a diary for my move into tube amps. But truth be told, I play acoustic guitar at least 75% of the gigs I play. And through the years, James Taylor has been a major influence on how […]

About six weeks ago, I inherited the guitar to the left from a friend, who had it passed to her when her uncle passed away in 2003. Since I got it, I’ve been playing it every day. The only thing I’ve done to it is to replace the strings, add a strap peg to the heel of […]
