Volume filters for your ears Your ears. For a musician, they are just about the most valuable tool imaginable. They're also one of the most fragile and easily damaged, and if damaged, they're irreplaceable - all of which makes hearing protection an essent...

Oil Can Guitar   For some of us, music is a necessity, and necessity as they say, is the mother of invention. Brothers Adam and Shaun Lee saw lots of musical inventiveness displayed on the streets of their hometown of Johannesburg South Africa, where...
Designed for bass, this pedal can rock your guitar too Sometimes it seems like guitarists get a lot more love from pedal manufacturers than bass players do. While it's true that many guitar-centric pedals can also work very well on bass, there are relativ...

Did you say Slugs? Quick Take Review —   You’ve probably all stepped on a slug, or had them slither across your path after a rain, and you know they can be slimy little buggers. But why would a drum set be infested with slugs?   Well...
Ahh, the theremin. It still captivates us with its eerie, warbly sound, not to mention the touch-free method by which it’s played (it just looks fun, doesn’t it?). Although some might say the theremin’s time came and went, it left an indelibl...
Like its namesake it's incredibly maneuverable, but does it sing? If you're into recording, then Blue Microphones probably needs no introduction. Their flagship Bottle tube microphone is considered by many engineers to be one of the finest microphon...
