The Weekly Roundup - 7/10/22

Welcome to another weekly roundup! This week we've got a pair of great acoustic guitar promotions, a range of exciting amps, a super unique bass from Ibanez, gig ready loudspeakers, and new products from both Boss and Catalinbread! Let's dive in!

First up, the Taylor Days event has been extended! This promo now lasts through July 31st and you won't want to miss out!

You've got great options on acoustic deals this summer. Our friends at Breedlove are also running a promo all summer long offering instant rebates on their Eco Collection guitars in all different body shapes and sizes. Check it out in this handy graphic!

A wide selection of amps arrived this week including a restock on the Tone King Gremlin combo, the high-gain lover's EVH 5150III 100s Head, A pristine Dr. Z Remedy Head  and separate matching Dr. Z 2x12 Cab, and an exciting brand new offering from Line 6. 

The Catalyst 60 is an affordable 1x12 modeling amp featuring Line 6's renowned HX technology. There are a ton of options for onboard effects, amp profiles, attenuation, and controls, but also the ability to plug into your computer via Line 6's software which allows you to adjust every parameter on the amp and save up to six banks of presets. Not only that, but you can use the Catalyst as a four channel audio interface. All of that, and more, for $299 makes the Catalyst an absolute steal in my book.

The Ibanez UB804 Upright Bass is now in stock! From Ibanez's Workshop line, the UB804 is a modern styled upright bass with a fretless design and an AeroSilk Piezo system with active tone control. There are even internal trimpots that allow you to further customize the gain of the Aerosilk system, making it quite the versatile design. The bass comes complete with a gig bag and a Tama Roadpro stand, so you'll have everything you need to get started.

 The Catalinbread Callisto MKII is here! With the Callisto MKII, Catalinbread have painstakingly recreated all of the vibe and tone that made the original chorus/vibrato so great AND added some awesome new features while keeping it 100% analog. The new feedback control sends a varying amount of signal from the Bucket Brigade chip back into the circuit for a tone that blurs the line between classic chorus and flange. Did I mention it sounds great? It does. It does sound great.

If your summer plans include hitting the stage in any way, you're likely on the hunt for a good pair of loudspeakers. New in the store this week are the Mackie Thrash 212s. At 1300W, these lightweight and durable speakers pack plenty of punch for nearly any gig or rehearsal. They've got a slew of input options, four different handles for easy loading, and a built-in pole mount. Wherever you go, they're ready to rock, and they're affordable too.

If like us, you love to have options, Boss has you covered with a new line of durable gig bags.

The CB-EG10 and CB-EG20 provide excellent solutions for keeping your guitar safe on the road. They've got rugged handles, padded shoulder straps, and versatile storage options so you can keep any of your accessories safe, organized, and right where you need them when it comes to show time. Plus, they're from Boss, so you know they're built to last.

That's a wrap on the week! What piece of gear are you most looking forward to this summer? Let us know down in the comments! As always, thanks for hanging!
