Gibson Custom Hendrix Flying V – Jimi Hendrix’s Flying V was purchased in 1967 and used extensively on tour in Europe during 1967 and 1968. Jimi painted the guitar with all sorts of swirling psychedelic designs to highlight the spirit of the times. Now Gibson’s Custom Shop has meticulously recreated Jimi’s guitar for the new “Inspired By” Series. All materials and hardware are faithful reproductions of the original right down to the tiniest detail. Needless to say, this is going to be hugely collectible and will go fast!
Line 6 LowDown 300 Pro – The LowDown series is a new line of bass amps from Line 6, delivering an incredible array of dialed-in, stage-perfected bass tones. While most bass amps are built to deliver high volume levels and clean tone, the LowDown 300Pro offers five must-have effects and five killer bass amp models that cover everything from funk to classic rock and beyond. What’s more, the oversized power amp has incredible articulation and low-end punch plus a Direct Output for recording or sending your sound to a house system.
Edirol UA-4FX – Edirol has again pushed the price/performance envelope with the new UA-4FX. A portable USB audio/MIDI interface that delivers ultra-fast, low-latency audio and MIDI performance, high-resolution 24-bit/96kHz audio, a phantom-powered XLR mic input, and 14 built-in effects (including a COSM tube mic preamp simulator for fattening up your tracks). The UA-4FX also ships with a copy of Cakewalk’s SONAR LE recording software and Edirol Virtual Sound Canvas plug-in (PC), making it a true all-in-one recording solution at an incredibly low price.
Zoom G9.2tt – Part of the company’s G-Series, the G9.2tt is equipped with two real vacuum tubes in the signal path with a tube accelerator function that adds some pre-overdrive compression, along with a Tube Energizer for outstanding drive and volume. It also comes standard with two expression pedals, a USB audio interface, an XLR mic input with phantom power (vocal effects included), an onboard drum machine, 32-bit internal processing with a 96kHz sampling rate, and 24-bit converters. It even has a built-in tuner and ships with a copy of Cubase LE software!
Gretsch White Falcon DS – At one time, the White Falcon was only available as a custom-made instrument and sat at the very top of the Gretsch guitar line, affordable only to a chosen few that had lucrative record deals. Now the ’50s-era White Falcon is available in a production model! The Gretsch White Falcon DS features the original dual DynaSonic single-coil pickups (for some extra “twang”), gold-plated hardware, Grover Imperial machine heads, Synchro-Sonic bridge, Cadillac “G” tailpiece, vertical Gretsch headstock logo and feather-engraved mother-of-pearl “hump block” inlays. A real beauty!
