Ok, I admit it. I often use bass libraries when arranging songs. Sure, I could borrow a bass from a buddy and hack my way through a tune. But, to be honest, I can be a bit of a perfectionist and end up retracking a multitude of times trying to get things sounding just the way I want. On the other ha... [More]

I’ve been romanticizing about being able to pulls some classic Vox tones from a stompbox for quite some time.

Though not the first compression pedal to feature a blend knob, the Wampler Ego compressor is one of the few, and among good company.

I had initially planned on reviewing the Barber Direct Drive as part of our Marshall-in-a-Box Roundup. Sometimes things in the industry can get hectic, and their generally quite affordable pricing relative to the boutique market means that the economic downturn meant even more attention than usual f...
