Make Better Music with Harmony Central | View Online | V16.22
 
From the Editor's Desk


Welcome to “Make Better Music.” In this edition, Chris Loeffler explores when wrong notes can be the right notes, and also sees if Ernie Ball can go for gold with the Expression Overdrive Guitar Effect Pedal. Phil puts on his lab coat in his insatiable quest to satisfy his gear lust. He digs into the Dwarfcraft Devices Necromancer Fuzz, the Auralex Acoustics MudGuard v2, and the Electro-Harmonix Mini-Synthesizer iOS App. We also have three guest contributors this issue with our friends at Gearphoria visiting Jason Lollar to discover his magnetic attraction to pickups, while Mike Bieber walks you through playing abroad to help to keep you from frying your gear. And finally, Yannick takes a ride on ddrum's Journeyman Player drumset.
