  • J’s year in review

    • This year went so fast.

    • Neunaber pedals (from last year, Immerse reverb this year.

    • A solid year for pedal development.

    • The bogner / Neve pedals in general.

    • Lots of reverbs and stuff this year, I think the Catalinbread Adineko and DBA ghost Delay.  Solid Gold FX electroman.

    • Has fender come out with tons of new guitars this past year?

    • Major advancements in tuner pedal technology!

    • Obviously the MODO bass instrument from IK multimedia

    • Worst of the year goes to Gibson for their “2017” lineup where the traditional model doesn’t have traditional features.

    • But…

    • Gibson gets a clean slate for 2017!
