Bare Knuckle Mule Humbucker
By Pete Fine, Accessories, posted on 07-21-2011

Bare Knuckle Warpig Humbucker
By Pete Fine, Accessories, posted on 07-21-2011
I was anxious to hear this high output metal monster of a pickup- the Bare Knuckle Warpig. So we put one into a good imported LP type guitar to see how it would perform, knowing that if it passed the ...Read More >

A Great Vocal Mic
By Joel Thall, Live Sound, posted on 07-08-2011
The Sennheiser e945 has it all: tons of gain, articulation & detail, and a very smooth sound. Looks stylish too. With Sennheiser's 10-year warranty. I like this mic!

Clean Boosts are realy handy pedals. They can turn a "too-clean" amp into a rocker and also offer a way to boost for solos as well. The MXR CAE (Custom Audio Electronics) Booster does an awesome job o ...Read More >

Classic Rock Humbucker
By Pete Fine, Accessories, posted on 04-05-2011
Just when I thought I couldn't be impressed any more by the Bare Knuckle line of pickups we got in their Black Dog humbuckers. Once again these guys have nailed the tone. Think of a sweet PAF humbucke ...Read More >

T.C. Electronic Flashback Delay and Looper
By Pete Fine, Accessories, posted on 03-16-2011
I have come to expect great stuff from T.C. Electronic but the lower prices of their new line of guitar effect pedals has really impressed me. I had my doubts, at this lower price range- until I start ...Read More >

MXR Micro Amp
By Pete Fine, Accessories, posted on 01-12-2011
The MXR M133 Micro Amp could be the best kept secret in the guitar pedal world. Matching right up there with more expensive boutique "clean boosts", I was really impressed with this pedal. It is clean ...Read More >

The Rode M3 will be your secret weapon go-to mic for live acoustic instruments: guitar, mandolin, violin. Great sound: captures all the player's subleties and dynamics (handles both quiet passages and ...Read More >

Korg CA40 Chromatic Tuner
By Pete Fine, Accessories, posted on 11-16-2010
It's rare that I get to rave about a guitar accessory that sells for under $20! The Korg CA40 is a staple around here. Talk about "reliable"! I have literally sold many hundreds of them and I have yet ...Read More >

What a treat to be able to rehearse a band anywhere, at any time of the day or night! Using this JamHub is a breeze. You can get your own mix in the headphones, add some reverb or other built-in effec ...Read More >

DigiTech TR-7
By Pete Fine, Accessories, posted on 09-07-2010
The DigiTech TR-7 is an impressive tremolo. A lot of recent tremolo pedals have either been the same old thing or been so "out-there" that after about one minute they get on my nerves. The DigiTech TR ...Read More >

JangleBox Silver
By Pete Fine, Accessories, posted on 08-10-2010
I first heard the JangleBox on their website and was really impressed with it. It is one of those effects that you just want to keep playing. I wished I was in a Byrds tribute band! It is not just ano ...Read More >

Beyond Words- EL34's from the 70's
By Pete Fine, Accessories, posted on 06-15-2010
Amazing power; massive sound; in-your-face detail from clean to overdriven. I really am out of superlatives to describe what I heard after slapping these Mesa NOS Siemens EL34 tubes into a Marshall. I ...Read More >

Visual Sound H2O Pedal
By Pete Fine, Accessories, posted on 05-26-2010
Here at Rainbow we sell delays and choruses more than any other effects (except overdrive/distortion, which some don't consider an "effect"). So the folks at Visual Sound figured out that if you put a ...Read More >
