Review: EarthQuaker Devices Afterneath Reverb Pedal — Video

The EarthQuaker Devices Afterneath is a novel stomp box that combines bottomless pits of reverb with self-oscillating warp-driven delays, which in turn, create spatial soundscapes unlike anything you’ve ever heard.

Review: Musicvox Space Cadet Custom Floyd Rose Guitar — Video

While the Floyd Rose tremolo has been around long enough to be considered vintage or even antique, the addition of a Floyd Rose brings the Musicvox Space Cadet Custom into the modern era and opens up a whole new world to players who have always wanted to try a Musicvox guitar but can’t live without their whammy.

Review: Orange Rockverb 100 MKIII Guitar Amp — Video

The latest and greatest of the changes Orange has made to the Rockverb are reflected in the new Orange Rockerverb 100 MKIII 100-watt head, which provides impressive tonal refinements and new features certain to satisfy the most demanding players.

Review: EVH Gear Wolfgang WG Standard Guitar — Video

The EVH Wolfgang USA guitar designed and played by Eddie Van Halen is one hell of a fine instrument, but not everyone can afford its $4,000-plus sticker price. Fortunately, EVH recently introduced its most affordable version of the Wolfgang guitar yet—the EVH Wolfgang WG Standard.

Review: Gretsch G6128T-1962 Duo Jet — Video

Gretsch has built a solid reputation with its impressive line of popular archtop hollowbody guitars, like the Country Gentleman and the White Falcon. But what’s often overlooked is the company’s superb line of solidbody guitars, such as the Duo Jet.

Review: ESP USA Eclipse Guitar — Video

While I own, play and love more than my fair share of imported guitars, I still prefer electric models made in the good ol’ U. S. of A.

After all, Americans invented the electric guitar, and we design and build them like no one else. So it deeply warmed my heart earlier this year when ESP announced its USA Series Eclipse, Horizon and M-III models, which are the company’s first guitars made at its brand-new factory in North Hollywood, California.

We took a look at ESP’s classic-inspired single-cutaway Eclipse model.

Review: Strymon Deco Tape Saturation and Doubletracker Pedal — Video

Chances are, many younger guitarists have never recorded with a vintage studio reel-to-reel tape deck, much less witnessed one that wasn’t covered in dust.

And it’s a shame, because they’ve missed out on the warm compression analog that tape decks produce as well as the soft distortion that occurs when a guitar signal is overloaded into it. In addition, other natural-sounding tape-based effects, like flanging, chorusing and slapback echo have been replaced with strident digital imitations.

All things considered, a reel-to-reel deck is an impractical option for most guitarists. Fortunately, the Strymon Deco Tape Saturation and Doubletracker vividly emulates all of those superb analog sounds in a pedalboard-friendly, digital stompbox that brilliantly enhances your guitar tone with fullness and colorful effects.

Practice Made Perfect: Guitar World Rounds Up 17 Amazing Practice Amps

Playing live might be the best way to hone your performance skills, but when it comes to technique, you need practice, practice, practice. If you play an electric guitar, your woodshedding sessions demand an amp that not only reveals the details and nuance of your playing but also sounds great—so great that it makes you want to practice more and become the best guitarist you can.

Review: ToneVille Broadway Guitar Amp — Video

In the boutique amp world, a 20-watt combo with a single 12-inch speaker usually means either one of two things: it’s either based on one of Fender’s various iterations of their Deluxe model or it’s inspired by Marshall’s model 1973 combo.

The ToneVille Broadway takes a different approach by combining the best of both American and British circuits, providing a wider variety of tones than its streamlined control panel might initially suggest.

Review: Decibel Eleven Dirt Clod Distortion Pedal — Video

It’s not uncommon to see four, five or even 10 different distortion effects in many guitarists’ pedal boards these days.

But in addition to weighing a ton and taking up a lot of room on a crowded pedal board, having that many pedals can cost as much as a good amp.

If you wish to explore a wide variety of distortion tones but don’t want to spend a fortune or break your back hauling around a mission control-sized pedal rig, the Decibel Eleven Dirt Clod distortion pedal offers a versatile and affordable alternative with its ability to save ten different presets.
