The Capo

By Richard Gilewitz

There are so many times when I have written about either a product that is new on the market, an updated model, or discussed the purpose of whatever the little (or big) device is that I gave myself the ultimate out by saying, “This is from a players perspective.” It’s actually not quite the out […]

By Jake Kelly

What’s in a cable? No, really…What is in a guitar cable? Most all guitar cables look the same. They have ¼” jacks on either end, some kind of stress relief for an inch or so off the jack, and 15 to 20 feet of cable in between. Hosa’s Elite series in somewhat based off of the […]

By Jake Kelly

This was the dream…a guitar that tuned itself. Now it is a reality: the Gibson Min-ETune robotic tuning gears actually tune the guitar all by its lonesome with a mere push of a button.

By Robert Lindquist

by Robert Lindquist When I first learned of the VocoPro UHF-5800, which packs four wireless microphones and their receivers in a single system, I thought “It’s got to be well over a grand.” Then…when I read that the suggested retail was just $479 (found online for as little as $329), I thought “No, it just […]


Review – Sony PCM M10 Recorder

By Robert Lindquist

by Robert Lindquist In my office I have a 1980s vintage Revox A77 open reel stereo tape recorder with a deck that’s marred with scratches from the razor blades used to cut tape during many a late night editing session. It hasn’t been used in years, but it is a grand reminder of the importance […]


Gretsch Electromatic G5420: Video Review

By Jake Kelly

by Jake Kelly Gretsch guitars are iconic, no doubt. It would be hard to picture Brian Setzer or Chet Atkins without one. Can the affordable Electromatic line still give you that great Gretsch sound?
