JST Bassforge Rex Brown Review

JST Bassforge Rex Brown Review

Joey Sturgis Tones have teamed up with Rex Brown to develop a plugin to help you to recreate his classic bass tones. Rex Brown might not have received as much attention as other members of Pantera but, in my opinion, he was absolutely vital in giving the band their legendary sound. In fact, it’s hard to find a more solid bass player in metal music. Dimebag’s tone wasn’t pretty but it was effective, however, it needed a great bass tone behind it to really give it some warmth and weight. Rex Brown found the ideal tones to do just that and add an extra dimension of his own.

Can the same great tones be found in a plugin? Let’s find out. Continue reading →

Woodpecker Travel Guitars And Ukuleles

Woodpecker Travel Guitars And Ukuleles

I spend more time than I’d like to admit scrolling through Instagram. I recently came across a company who really stood out. Many companies now offer travel-sized acoustic guitars but Woodpecker only make travel-sized acoustic guitars and ukuleles. It’s nice to see a company focus solely on these products and try to make them as good as possible rather than just adding a small guitar to an existing product line. Continue reading →

I’ll hand over to JD….. Continue reading →
