Power outage, foot cramp, too afraid to lick that 9-volt you found in the bottom of your cable bag? Sometimes you just need to step away from the world of electronics altogether and express yourself with just an acoustic guitar. The Aspri Acero is a compact reverb tank that can be added to your acoustic guitar without any modifications or use of batteries.
“Sorry No Beige” was the slogan for Apple’s colorful, all-in-one G3 computer in the late '90s. Today you can order a guitar in just about any color under the sun or mix and match pickguards till the cows come home. But the case ... why does the case have to look so boring? Bullhorn Guitar Cases gives you a blank canvas and the tools to design your own one-of-a-kind case.
The Axsys 1.0 is a US-made, high-quality guitar-seat-and-stand combo. Secondly, it’s pre-assembled with one sheet of three easy directions — with pictures! To get going, all I had to do was remove the safety pin, fold out the back leg, re-apply the safety pin and click the seat in position. To go from seat to guitar stand mode, flip a switch and the seat folds down.

Tremolo shows up on the guitar, bass and vocals tracks.
Freedom One is the latest wireless unit/tuner pedal combo from Intellitouch. Unlike most wireless receivers that clutter up your stage rig, the Freedom One’s receiver is tucked nicely into a tuner pedal. The tuner can be used simultaneously with the wireless, or it can be used as a standalone pedal tuner, the same way you’d use any others.
"Twist it! Pull it!" OK, this review has nothing to do with the late-'90s handheld game Bop It, but the Push me Pull me overdrive pedal by Custom 77 is just as addicting. The French-designed pedal is like having three different overdrive sounds at your disposal in one box. Without any cheat or CAPTCHA codes to enter, the Push me Pull Me couldn’t be any easier to use.
“I forget who makes those orange-colored amps,” said no one ever. The iconic Orange Amplification has been building amps since the late '60s. They recently expanded into the cable market, and their website lists speaker, instrument and XLR cables. I recently checked out the speaker and instrument cables.
