Free Demo: AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix Is A Helluva' Lot Of Fun

IK Multimedia's highly anticipated AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix modeling software finally made it to stores last month, but the big news for me––yep, I'm a bit of a cheapskate––was the release of their free demo, which contains the full working product, and is good for ten days.

Gibson this morning launched the latest addition to their year-long Guitar Of The Week series––this week's model being the new Les Paul Classic Antique in Zebra Wood.

Electro-Harmonix Busts Out With Two New Pedals… Specs Would Be Nice

Well, with no fanfare whatsoever Electro-Harmonix has added two new guitar effects pedals to their line-up––what appears to be a nano-sized reissue of the classic '70s Soul Preacher Compressor/Sustainer, and something called the #1 Echo. Unfortunately, in usual Electro-Harmonix fashion, specs are pretty much nonexistent, so it's not even appar…
