In the following video, Guitar World's Paul Riario reviews the new G3 guitar effect and amp simulator from Zoom. The G3 is configured like three compact pedals, each with three knobs for adjusting parameters, a footswitch, buttons for scrolling through effects and a large display.
In the following video, Guitar World's Paul Riario reviews a unique item, the Super-Vee Mag-Lok anti-deflection device. The Mag-Lok uses rare-earth magnets to keep a floating tremolo system from moving when strings are bent, so that double-stop bends remain in tune.
In the video below, we check out the new Dimebag Concrete Sledge ML guitar. Actually, you'll notice Dimebag's original ML hanging on the wall; that, of course, was the inspiration for the new model. The new version features an exact rendering of the colorful airbrush job on the original guitar. It's got everything but the Kiss sticker!
Guitar World stopped off at the Celestion booth last week during the 2012 Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, California, to speak to John Paice about the company's new offerings, including the G12M-65 Creamback speaker.
Guitar World visited the T-Rex booth at last week's 2012 Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, California, to check out the company's new offerings for 2012. The new gear includes the multi-featured Gull Wah, the Hobo Drive overdrive pedal and four new Tonebug pedals, including a reverb, phaser, chorus/flanger and distortion (AKA the Totenschläger).
New Vox gear includes the Delay Lab pedal, which offers 30 presets and a 28-second looper (There's so much more to say about the Delay Lab; to read more about it -- and see another video -- head here); the Handwired Wah, which offers more mid-range than usual; the AC4 C1 amp in blue; the AC4 Handwired amp and the Tony Bruno TB18 amp.
DV Mark, an Italy-based manufacturer of guitar amplifiers and effect pedals, unveiled six -- yes, six -- new effect pedals last week at the 2012 Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, California. Like everything else DV Mark makes, the pedals are 100 percent constructed in Italy with passion and careful attention to thousands of details.
Last week, we visited the Ibanez booth at the 2012 Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, California, to get a good look at the company's new offerings. Among them is the Ibanez 2012 Steve Vai Jem guitar. The guitar, which comes in a beautiful Sea Foam Green finish ("A color that Steve is very fond of"), features a cool Tree of Life neck inlay. Despite its good looks, it's actually the most affordable Jem model that Ibanez makes, with a street price of around $1,399.
