Summer NAMM pics

The ususal funny lookin' geetars, loads of pedals and those girls you only see in short skirts at trade shows.

Thanks to Rufuss and Rodney G for the passes.

If I don't start with the Roland V-Accordion, I'm stupid (I don't know how much of this stuff is new, just winging it.)

They're not kidding. When I saw the thing from across the room, I thought it had to be a mock-up gag, you know, since NAMM in in South Texas this summer. But no, it's the real deal. Kinda shows how the U.S. can be a small drop of the world market sometimes.

Randall Lynchbox. Takes MTS modules. 100w EL34's.

Why The F can't they put an input on the back of heads that are designed to go on top of one or two 4x12's.

This picture illustrates why that would be a good thing.

The Auratone, reborn as the Avantone. I've ordered a pair already and will report as soon as they're here.

I said to hurry.

The drivers are made in New Zealand. They're made of MDF and they have mic stand mounts on the bottom, as well as a nice thick rubber pad.

Nice Mustang at Fender. Too bad they had to bring this back, cuz I'm gonna buy one. That small radius neck is so great for rhythm playing. You can see in the picture how curved the frets are.

Numark Turntable that has a CD Player in it. You can manipulate the LP or CD or both with the platter. In other words, the LP platter will play records, and/or it controls the CD.

Numark also had this bada** little three rackspace deal with three small video screens on it. It's for live VJ-ing, but I think it'd be cool for closed circuit stuff in a studio. It looks totally James Bond. I took a picture, but they made me erase it. Top Secret stuff.

Nah. I realized we practically coulda got in without badges. Don't tell 'em I said so (on the internet!)

This is the Fender 60th Anniversary Woody. I think it's sub-$1000 but don't quote me.

More love from Ampeg

Sorry for the blurry picture. You can kinda see how there's a plexiglass plate (ok, perspex for you UK folk) that says "Ampeg" on it. Well, back in the day, you could custom order that plate with your name on it. I asked if you can still do that, but they didn't know. Supposed to call me about it.

There's that SVT mic preamp. I guess it's for micing SVT's. Nowadays, the manufacturers are telling us what mic preamps goes with what source. Sheesh.

In high school, my sister's boyfriend had one of these (Like 1979) AND he had a black Trans Am. I thought he was God.

The Toadworks Phantasm Dynamic Phaser. This guy made pedals that actually worked differently, including a dynamic A/B switch; you could set up two different chains of gear, and depending on how loud you played, you got more A or more B.

Little story here. My best friend when I was growing up as a kid was very cool, great artist and great guitar player. Bought my first real guitar from him, also took my first guitar lessons from him as well, hell 30 years ago or so.

Anyway he is the Carvel custom shop pain guru now, all their custom shop guitars are his design and paint work. Very cool. He also did one of Iron Maiden's recent album covers and he is a custom chopper paint guy as well. Really really good.

Check out his web site here if you get a chance.
