- Martin CSN Gerry Tolman Special Edition Tribute – This Special Edition guitar honors the late Gerry Tolman, who was the manager of Crosby, Stills and Nash (thus the “CSN”). Wait, a manager? Well, Tolman was essential in getting the band through a difficult period and helping them re-establish themselves as a creative force in popular music (and also managed to lure back Neil Young on occasion). The guitar includes some very personalized inlays in a premium dreadnought design. Premium solid tonewoods are used throughout, including East Indian rosewood back and sides, an Engelmann spruce top, and genuine mahogany neck. These elements combine with forward-shifted 5/16″ scalloped top bracing for rich, powerful tone. Bold herringbone purfling is placed around the top, and a Style 45 rosette with a center ring of select abalone adorns the soundhole. A very special instrument, indeed!
- Roland V-Synth GT – This keyboard builds on the original V-Synth, which is renowned by performers and sound designers alike for its amazingly expressive synthesis and comprehensive sound design capabilities. It merges the company’s innovative Elastic Audio Engine with its Articulative Phrase Synthesis technology to form a new synth with amazing expression capabilities. You get features like speed programming, Articulative Phrase Synthesis, and powerful analog modeling that allow you to create never-before-heard sounds! Roland’s proprietary VariPhrase technology is also integrated into the V-Synth GT. Together with its analog-modeling engine, External Audio input, and digital sampling architecture, the V-Synth GT provides an incredibly wide and colorful foundation on which to capture, manipulate, and create your own unique sounds.
