Elixir Optiweb Guitar Strings Review

Elixir Optiweb Guitar Strings Review

Optiweb is Elixir’s latest string coating and they claim it gives the most natural sound and feel of any coated guitar string. I remember trying coated strings when they first came out and I wasn’t hugely impressed. Have Elixir nailed the recipe?

Elixir Optiweb Guitar Strings

I must admit, after my experiences with coated guitar strings in the past I was a little reluctant to try them again. I do tend to eat through strings at a pretty rapid rate though so the idea of longer lasting strings definitely appeals to me so I ordered a set of Elixir Optiweb 10-46 and fitted them to my Solar S1.6FR when they arrived.

ammoon American Sound Pedal Review

ammoon American Sound Pedal Review

Amp simulators have come a long way in recent years and most have a huge amount of options available within them. Sometimes, all you want is a simple solution and that’s exactly what ammoon aim to provide with their American Sound pedal.

ammoon American Sound Pedal

Whilst most amp simulators are digital, ammoon have taken a different approach with this pedal and used an analogue circuit. You’re never going to find a million different options within an analogue pedal like this but at times it definitely makes sense to use this technology instead of going digital. One of the big bonuses of this pedal is the simplicity. Continue reading →
