From the Editor's Desk


Welcome to “Make Better Music,” we're glad to see you. C'mon in and have a hot cider.

The holiday season is upon us, and we've gift-wrapped a bunch of reviews and articles designed to help you make better music as 2016 reaches the end of its run. In this edition, Chris continues his helpful series on tweaking your axe with Electric Guitar Repair 101, turns profiled amps into plug-ins with Peavey's Revalver 4 ACT, and gets his purple haze on with Source Audio's Kingmaker Fuzz. Gearphoria's Blake Wright takes us behind the scenes with Verellen Amps, while Craig apparently uses cats as studio peripherals - see his latest Craig's List. Phil asks if size matters with IK Multimedia's teeny tiny iRig Pro Duo, and squeezes the daylights out of his SG with Pigtronix's Philosopher's Tone Micro. And finally, Harmony Central contributor The Gig Kahuna wants to help you grow your band's fan base so you can pack 'em in for New Years.
