Reviewed: Audio-Technica System 10

By Bill Evans

Has it really been more than six months since Winter NAMM? Dang. Thinking back to that ancient time… There was a bit of a war of digital guitar wireless units. Audio-Technica and Shure had booths literally across from one another and both of them intro’d stompbox-style wireless guitar units operating in the 2.4 gHz frequency […]

GEAR REVIEW: Dueling IEMs From Ultimate Ears

By Bill Evans

We did something very different this time… I was fitted with a pair of UE IEMs as was the Sith Lord of Audio, Darth Fader. I got the top of the line “normal” ones and Lord Fader got the personalized ones called PRMs (Personal Reference Monitors) that are “tuned” to the taste of the end […]

GEAR REVIEW: Fishman TriplePlay

By Bill Evans

By Rev. Bill   I have what might be termed as a love/hate relationship with the entire idea of MIDI guitar. After years of gigging with one and spending thousands of dollars on gear, I finally gave it up—I thought for good—about five years ago.   But I knew the second I saw the Fishman […]

PreSonus AI-It’s the Ecosystem, Stupid.

By Bill Evans

For those of you who are just getting started in the world of music and audio: you have no idea how good you have it. The amount of power and the level of quality available in even an entry level PA rivals what arena touring bands worked with two decades ago.   We have arrived at […]

The Podunk Poets Pull Into Las Vegas

By Bill Evans

OK, admission. I hate going out to see bands that friends play in if I don’t already know them. Why? Friends. What if the band sucks? Do you tell them and make them hate you or lie and do them no good at all.   So when my friend Jake Kelly told me he would […]

Jammit

By Bill Evans

I have a solid 100 tabs on my Mac; I have the paid version of the Ultimate Guitar app on my phone; I have books; I have DVDs. And all of them are useful but I have a new favorite: It’s called Jammit.   Go download it. It’s free. The desktop app runs on tha […]
