The 65 London Boutique Amp from 65 Amps is based on some of the greatest low powered amps built in the mid 1960s. These amps were the favorites of many top musicians, and the 65 London is just as popular. If you need an amp that provides that great British sound and tone but isn’t huge and bulky, the 65 London is exactly what you want. The amp is used by just about everyone in the business for many different events, including in the recording studio, on tour, on large and small stages, and even at home for practice. It truly is quite the versatile amp. (more...)
If you’re looking for an awesome guitar pedal that provides some very rich tube tones when turned on and a true signal bypass when you’ve got it off, then take a look at the DigiTech HardWire CM-2 Tube Overdrive Pedal. True bypass is really the only way of making certain your tone sounds exactly like you want it to sound after it travels from your guitar to your amp, which is why pedals like the HardWire Cm-2 are in such demand by the pros. How does true bypass differ from traditional pedals? In true bypass, the signal actually goes right through the box when the effects are turned off, so your tone never gets colored or distorted in any way. (more...)
When it comes to the line of tweed deluxe clones, you’ll find many different versions out there. 5E3 tweed clones seem to be a dime a dozen. However, the Fargen 54’ tweed deluxe clone boutique amp is one of the best. It isn’t just a 5E3 clone, it’s an amp that provides a great amount of tone, sound, and options. The pre amp input section features an input section with individual volume control for both sides of the tube. This was something missing in the original 5E3 amp, which limited players to having both sides voiced identically.
Fargen Amps have been in operation since 1998. Created by Ben Fargen, the company is dedicated to creating top quality amps.

Once word of his amps spread, he began getting orders form others. (more...)

The Emma OMP-1 OnoMATOpoeia Booster Overdrive Pedal may have a very odd name, but that doesn’t make it any less of a great pedal. It’s one of the most unique booster / overdrive pedals out there. One of the top features of the Emma OMP-1 OnoMATOpoeia pedal is that it can easily increase the volume of your guitar to a solo level but at the same time, the gain control allows you to distort the signal. This distortion is much like the type of distortion you’d get with a good tube amp when if first hits the overdrive stage. (more...)
