Instead you have to remain in lockstep with pre-programmed songs and beats. </p> <p>The Beatbuddy drum machine pedal has changed that, however, allowing musicians to engage intros, fills and rhythm changes as they see fit, with a simple tap of the foot. It’s like having a drummer who can read your mind and is completely at your own control—a concept never imagined possible until the Beatbuddy came along.</p> <p><strong><a href="http://guitarworld.myshopify.com/collections/guitar-world/products/guitar-world-march-15-black-sabbath?&amp;utm_source=gw_homepage&amp;utm_medium=article&amp;utm_campaign=March2015VideosPage">For the rest of this review, including FEATURES, PERFORMANCE, the BOTTOM LINE and more, check out the March 2015 issue of Guitar World.</a></strong></p> <!-- Start of Brightcove Player --><!-- Start of Brightcove Player --><div style="display:none"> </div> <!-- By use of this code snippet, I agree to the Brightcove Publisher T and C found at https://accounts.brightcove.com/en/terms-and-conditions/. --><!-- By use of this code snippet, I agree to the Brightcove Publisher T and C found at https://accounts.brightcove.com/en/terms-and-conditions/. --><script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="http://admin.brightcove.com/js/BrightcoveExperiences.js"></script><object id="myExperience4021304761001" class="BrightcoveExperience"> <param name="bgcolor" value="#FFFFFF" /> <param name="width" value="620" /> <param name="height" value="348" /> <param name="playerID" value="798983031001" /> <param name="playerKey" value="AQ~~,AAAAj36EdAk~,0qwz1H1Ey92wZ6vLZcchClKTXdFbuP3P" /> <param name="isVid" value="true" /> <param name="isUI" value="true" /> <param name="dynamicStreaming" value="true" /> <param name="@videoPlayer" value="4021304761001" /> </object><!-- This script tag will cause the Brightcove Players defined above it to be created as soon as the line is read by the browser.

And it will do the same for you,” Lukather says.</p> <p>Extensively tested by Lukather, The Luke features hand-selected components for an open and refined sound. The new pedal also features an improved control layout with custom pot tapers resulting in improved control, fine tuning and usability whether you’re playing in a garage or a stadium. The Luke is housed in an octagonal pedalboard-friendly roadworthy case that features a unique cartoon by 'Astro'. From subtle enhancements to drastic tonal changes, The Luke unleashes your guitar's range of possibilities.</p> <p>The Luke will be available to dealers worldwide in March 2015.</p> <p>In addition to the standard edition of the The Luke, a limited production “Luke Launch Edition” of just 100 units is available for pre-order directly from <a href="http://www.toneconcepts.com/">toneconcepts.com.</a></p> <p>In other Lukather news, Toto's new studio album, <em>Toto XIV,</em> will be released the last week of March.</p> <p>For more on Lukather, visit <a href="http://www.stevelukather.com/">stevelukather.com</a>.

Yes, the Best of Show award judging was under way.</p> <p>Armed with product descriptions and booth locations, anonymous reviewers put each and every product through its paces with the goal of singling out top gear. </p> <p>Products were judged on value, versatility, design, craftsmanship, feel, sound, cosmetics and that elusive something special, “mojo.” Items were scored on an average based on a 1-10 rating that took into account only the criteria that were applicable for each product.</p> <p>Products were reviewed from the perspective of the media outlet(s) for which they were submitted. Titles like <em>Guitar Player, Keyboard, Electronic Musician, Guitar World</em> and more each selected their favorites.</p> <p>One judge shared, “There’s an overwhelming amount of new gear at the NAMM Show. Having the opportunity to judge some of the leading manufacturers’ most innovative new offerings was equally challenging and lots of fun.”</p> <p>The first ever Best of Show Awards presented by the NewBay Music Group, top scorers for each publication were singled out and will be featured in an upcoming <em><strong>Best of Show NAMM 2015 Program Guide</strong></em>.
