Haven't fired it up since getting it home, but I think our music is going to sound a little more aggressive at this show :lol:
Big thanks to Glenn at Walter's Music for letting me borrow this for our Canada Day gig! Highly recommended for the London guys, just tell him I sent ya ;).
I brought my Washburn over to my tech's yesterday and he told me that the guitar is coming up on becoming "beach-only". It's by no means a high end model, and has done me well so far.
I am going to be looking at acoustic-electrics at the sub-$1K range, and he made suggestions of...
We've been hard at work at the band HQ getting some good things together! Along with show announcements coming up, we have our website running and a brand new music video!
If you want to stream our entire album or see what we're up to, visit us online:
I traded my Peavey XXX 412 w/ British Leads for this on Monday. It's a limited edition (2001?) Epiphone ES-335 Dot in a sweet finish. Google image results didn't turn it up, which is always awesome. Specs are your usual Epi dot specs. I don't plan on changing anything out on this one, she just...
Picked up this pretty fresh-lookin' ~'83 JCM800 with G12-65's and what looks to be a second aftermarket jack on the back!
Physically it's smaller then my XXX with WGS British Leads (for sale ;)) and sounds less bright, which is a bit surprising. I really dig the tone from Channel 3 with my...
11 great tracks spanning 40 minutes!
CD release party at the London Music Lounge on January 13th, 2012
I'm super excited to have my first full-length album in my hands! Within a few days the album will be for sale in major music stores worldwide (iTunes, Amazon, HMV, etc).
Tomorrow we will be...
Tonight we put up our debut music video for "Babyface" from our upcoming album "Battle of Barrington"
Please check it out, tell your friends, give us feedback, and play guitar!
We chose this song for a cover competition featuring 90's songs, trying to win $4000 towards a local studio. We didn't win, but the next competition is original or cover Christmas tunes :yesway:.
We used my iPhone 4S for the video and a room mic for audio.
This rounds out the collection nicely:
A 2011 Fender USA Deluxe Telecaster in Tungsten. It came with the case candy and SKB plastic flight case, which is great news for gigs and tours. This went straight from Walter's Music here in London to my tech's house to my house, and it couldn't have...
It's finally here!
Ibanez RG550mxxdy! 20th Anniversary RG550 in Desert Yellow :yesway:
You guys know the specs better then I do:
- Basswood Body
- Titanium reinforced Wizard I (II?) neck
- maple fretboard
- 24 frets
- Original Edge trem
- DR Neon strings!
First impressions: I took it out of...
New Wireless Day :yesway: - Line 6 G30.
I was going to get the G50, but it wouldn't have gotten to me in time for our headliner this Friday. I don't think the unit will be getting abused. I have my TS7 on my board, and it's going strong!
My tech is going to help me re-make my pedalboard before...
Thar she blows!
Andrew built a fine piece of art, and I tweaked it a bit more to my tastes.
- Kluson-style tuners
- J S Moore overwound '59 in the bridge, V-1 in the neck (JB/59 for sale!)
- chrome knobs
- Orange drop caps
- gutted the N-tune onboard tuner
- chrome pickup rings
I ordered a new bridge pickup for Big Blue to swap out the SD's and finish my mods for the guitar.
Jon made me a slightly overwound '59 style for the bridge, and I'll be taking my V-1 out of my PRS SE to put into the custom. I'll be putting the stock PRS neck pickup back in, as the guitar...
During the winter months, SCENE Magazine had their online polls open for the public to vote for their favourite London artist or group for various genres and abilities. Arkham Dispatch was nominated for Best Rock Group.
Last night was the awards ceremony. It seemed a bit...
Yes that's right folks, I bought it back. Andrew was good to deal with, and I got a smokin' guitar at a smokin' price.
Hear it here:
one-piece honduran mahogany body
three-piece hard maple neck
Gibson '59 profile (-1.00mm)
MoP Trapezoid inlays
We played a set at my friend's place aka The Dude Ranch on Saturday, and my friend Dustin took this vid on his iPhone.
The guys throw a couple basement shows a month, usually of the punk rock persuasion. It was a small crowd and we had a blast. It was also a friend's birthday party as well...
