Welcome, all! Another week, another roundup. As always, we've got some great finds for you this week, both new and used. Let's have a look!
We had a slew of new and used electric guitars come in this week including a trio of PRS CE24s in a variety of finishes and body types. These bolt-ons are excellent players and have some exciting tops and vibrant tones on tap. If you've been in the market for a CE24, or a PRS in general, you'll want to check out our site.
We get fairly excited about vintage instruments around here, and the next featured piece is no exception. We were pleased to take in this gorgeous 1945 Gibson L-50... With a solid carved spruce top, figured maple back and sides, one-piece mahogany neck, and solid Brazilian rosewood fingerboard, it's an absolute stunner. The frets have been professionally re-done, making it an even more beautiful player. The tuners, nut, and tailpiece have been replaced for tuning stability, but the original parts are included in the chipboard case. You'll want to see all the photos of this one, so make sure to check it out below.
Sticking with the realm of guitars, we got amps! As you know, we see a lot of used amps come through the door. This week, I'd like to show off one amp in particular. If you're into classic Marshall tones, you'll want to take a look at this JVM410H Satriani Edition. Built in conjunction with Joe Satriani, this beast retains all that you know and love about Marshall, but adds some interesting features, including a built-in noise gate with independent controls for both channels. At 100 watts, it should be plenty loud, too. Plug it in and let 'er rip!
NAMM was this last week and some new and exciting gear was announced and released. We weren't able to make it, but we were fortunate enough to get in the latest release from Collision Devices; Nocturnal. Nocturnal is delay, trem, and reverb each with the ability to sculpt and flavor your dynamic. For example, throw some modulation on your delay, or some shimmer on you reverb. With a boost or overdrive before it, Nocturnal's tremolo really shines. This is an exciting release for the already stellar Collision Devices lineup. We're big fans of their stuff here. If you're into getting ambient, we urge you to check them out. All of their pedals are hand-built in France and are truly quality.
Also debuting at NAMM were several great and innovative additions to the world of modular synthesis. Though this department is still a bit new for us, we're always on the lookout for the latest and greatest. We have some things on the way that we can't spoil just yet, but if you're in the market now, we now stock Starlab Reverb from Strymon, and some new, excellent items from Cre8Audio. One I would like to feature is the NiftyKEYZ. This powered case does everything. You can receive and send MIDI gates, triggers, clock information, so much stuff... This case is dual-channel, so if you're building the true-stereo setup of your dreams, this is the one. It's even got a built-in 49 key keyboard with aftertouch and all of the features you would expect to see in a standalone MIDI unit. With an available space of 112hp, there's a ton of room to play around. We have one of these setup upstairs, and we'd love for you to come try it out.
Wrapping things up this week is our drum department. Our used kit and cymbal listings are still going strong. Our feature this week, however, is on a kit that has been here for a little bit that we've neglected to talk about. This Gretsch Brooklyn four-piece kit in Blue Burst Pearl Nitron is absolutely sick. The Gretsch Brooklyn series is known to have a recognizable sound that people tend to gravitate towards, but the wrap on this one is what we really love. We've only got this one left in stock, so make sure you're the lucky one who comes in and snags it!
That's it for this week! Make sure to take a look every Sunday as we roundup the newest and greatest gear in the shop. Don't forget, our comments section is always open. Feel free to get in touch! As always, thanks for hanging.
