Last month I sent my good friend Vince Lee our new Airline Folkstar Resonator guitar – asked him to take it for a test drive. Here are three short videos he sent back.
A buddy of mine (thanks, Garrett!) tipped me to this model on eBay. I’ve long been a lover of 1960’s Italian-made guitars. One of my great regrets is letting go of a Sano hollowbody that was, in all but name, the same as the hollowbody Galanti Rangemaster.
We are now carrying the new VALCO guitars and effect pedals. VALCO’s focus is to deliver classic designs at affordable prices without compromising quality. All of their guitars feature premium custom wound VALCO pickups – all effect pedals are true bypass with top quality components.
I wasn’t in the market for any more amps, but how could I pass up this Lafayette LA-75? A buddy of mine (thanks Rob S.!) sent me an email, letting me know that this baby was on ebay for a really good price and that I should snatch it up. “If you love the (Valco-made) Harmony 415,” he said, knowing it was one of my favorites, “you’ll love this one. Similar output and tone, only out of one 12” instead of two.” And he was right—and then some. I do love the duel EL84 Valco/Harmony 415, but I think I like this little sleeper even more.
Last month, I was talking about the very cool little Guyatone 535 model that takes 2 EL84s (6BQ5s) for a clean, very chimey, shimmering tone. Plenty of British sounding chime and a great amp for 12 strings and clean tones. And this month, I’m going to talk about the Kalamazoo Reverb 12. Here’s another dual EL84 combo that gives further evidence that the circuit design has a lot (most everything) to do with the tone of an amp as, beyond sharing the same output tubes, it has very little in common with last month’s entry in the cheap amp chronicles. This amp has some great cleans, too, but they are nice dark, woody cleans—not the glassy chime from last month’s entry.

We have 24 STD models and 24 DLX models (with BIGSBY). The camera simply cannot capture the almost neon-like beauty of this guitar – it looks spectacular in hand. Each guitar is numbered “1 of 48” through “48 of 48”.
Every Sunday we are posting a single video demo paired with a recent review from Harmony Central. This week it is the Eastwood Sidejack DLX- I have no idea who did this, but it is cool and entitled “Wankin’ on my Eastwood Sidejack.”
