JHS Colour Box Release
Talked about this a while back - Pedal based on a famous EMI console, preamp/distortion/DI box type thing.
Scheduled for release on May 26, 2014.
Ernie Ball M-Steel Strings
“Ultra high output strings”
Wound strings are comprised of a “super cobalt” alloy around a Maraging Steel hex core
Specially tempered for fatigue resistance
New wrap design around the ball on the plain strings reduces slipping, breaking, and stays in tune better.
“Loudest most expressive strings ever created. Provides increased output, frequency response, and strength”
Comes in all the standard Ernie Ball sizes
Retail seems to be $13 per pack...ouch
The Tone Kone
Holds microphones flush to the cab for close mic setups
Plastic cup design holds the mic, run the cable through the bottom
Nylon strap sticks to the back of your cab using velcro
Mic is in the same spot every time
Create a wish list of pedals you want to try out
TONS of gear from a great list of manufacturers
Strymon, Earthquaker Devices, JHS, Empress, TC Electronic, to name a select few
They send you one at a time, and you keep it as long as you like
$34.95/mo but the first month is only a buck!
