Quick Review: Mackie Tapco Thump TH15A Active Speaker
By Joel Thall, Live Sound, posted on 07-10-2009
The Mackie Tapco Thump TH15A Active Speaker earns my "Best Buy" rating. Best sounding active speaker in its price class. Surprising amount of bass response (great for DJ's on a budget). Excellent menu ...Read More >

Quick Review: Mackie 1604 VLZ3
By Joel Thall, Live Sound, posted on 07-10-2009
The Mackie 1604 VLZ3 is the fourth generation of Mackie's flagship mixer. What's new? Even lower noise floor, better, hotter mic preamps, and a lower price. Can't go wrong.

Fender Mini Tonemaster Amp
By Pete Fine, Accessories, posted on 07-08-2009
This little mini Tonemaster amp not only looks like a vintage Fender Tonemaster in a tiny package but it also sounds cool. You can get plenty of overdrive, and rocking out with or without headphones i ...Read More >

Orange CR3 Crush Mini Amp
By Pete Fine, Accessories, posted on 07-08-2009
This has to be the coolest mini amp out there. I love the looks and the sound. Everything about the Orange Crush feels solid. It even has a built-in tuner so I can sit down and rock out with no interu ...Read More >

Seymour Duncan Blackout Humbucking Pickup Set
By Pete Fine, Accessories, posted on 07-03-2009
Active pickups have great raw power. Other actives I've tried, however, didn't have much personality, and hardly had the frequency response of the better passive humbuckers. These Duncan Blackouts are ...Read More >

By Pete Fine, Accessories, posted on 06-29-2009
The Joe Barden HB Humbucking pickup set pretty much blows away most humbuckers on the market. If these pickups don't give you incradible tone, clarity, bite, and added power, try a different amp! I l ...Read More >


By Pete Fine, Accessories, posted on 06-29-2009
The Joe Barden Tele set sounds like vintage Tele pickups, yet they are more powerful and responsive to attack in a way that is rare in replacement pickups. I love the "blade" design as it eliminates a ...Read More >


By Pete Fine, Accessories, posted on 06-29-2009
The Joe Barden pickups justify their price of a high-end pickup set. These pickups sound like vintage strat pickups with all the presence and harmonics that Fender pickups are known for, but they are ...Read More >

Fender Custom 69 Strat Pickups
By Pete Fine, Accessories, posted on 06-29-2009
I can't say enough about this pickup set! They are the real deal. In fact, they are still wound by the same woman who wound them in 1969!! The Fender Custom 69 Pickups have that midrange squawk at cle ...Read More >

Boss TU-1000 Tuner
By Pete Fine, Accessories, posted on 06-29-2009
This tuner has the brightest, largest readout I've ever seen. I can even use it in sunlight, which I can't say about any other LED based tuner. The Boss TU-1000 is fast, dead-accurate, and a pleasure ...Read More >

Heil PR20UT
By Joel Thall, Live Sound, posted on 06-27-2009
The Heil PR20UT is a super versatile microphone. By far, it's the best sounding snare drum mic at anywhere near this price. And it’s a stellar vocal mic. BUT use it stand-mounted only. If you want/nee ...Read More >

Boss PW-10 Virtual Wah
By Pete Fine, Accessories, posted on 06-26-2009
At first, the thought of a "digital" wah doesn't sound like a great idea but this baby does some amazing things. First, you can get a dead accurate reproduction of some vintage wahs. Next, you can twe ...Read More >

Speak no evil, see no evil, hear lots of evil.
By Harvey Moltz, Guitars, posted on 06-26-2009
Ok! You can call me skeptical or call me hard to please. But I can not remember the last time I sat down in front of a new amp and it felt like the first time I plugged into my copper top 1964 Vox Ac3 ...Read More >

Great Mic, Great Price
By Joel Thall, Live Sound, posted on 06-25-2009
This is going to be a quick get-to-the-point review. Great sound, cuts through any mix, and virtually no feedback. The AKG D5 is an incredible buy at this price!

Buddha Wah
By Pete Fine, Accessories, posted on 06-24-2009
I fell in love with the Buddha Budwah pedal after one minute, literally! I also tried many wahs, and owned several, before discovering this great, vintage sounding wah. First, it is more "musical" sou ...Read More >
