- Clavia Nord Lead Anniversary Model Limited Edition – Clavia was founded in 1983 by Hans Nordelius. Some 12 years later Clavia launched the original Nord Lead, which had a huge impact on the synthesizer community! To commemorate Clavia’s 25th anniversary, the company has created the Nord Lead Anniversary Model Limited Edition, which will be made in a limited production run that will consist of only 299 units (only 75 in the U.S.). It’s visually distinctive, with a custom-printed front panel and inverted color scheme on the keyboard. The Anniversary Model has the same powerful sound engine and specs as the Nord Lead 2, but the new internal memory holds a huge amount of factory sounds and has a lot of space for your own sounds. The individually numbered units will be delivered with a certificate of authenticity, signed by Mr. Nordelius.
- Taylor 114ce – Thought you could never afford a Taylor? Think again! The 114ce is a complete package that’s ready to perform, complete with Taylor’s new Under-Saddle Transducer pickup. Sporting a solid spruce top with laminated sapele back and sides, it’s big on quality and tone. The 114ce defies the logic of most starter guitars by providing a truly great-sounding instrument that is extremely well-built. The Grand Auditorium combines the width and depth of a Dreadnought with a narrower waist. Its sleek design yields strong treble across the tonal spectrum and sharpens the definition of individual notes. The ES-T Under-Saddle Transducer takes piezo technology to another level, with onboard Bass, Treble, and Volume controls plus custom-voiced EQ and dynamic response.
