Make Better Music with Harmony Central | View Online | V17.8

Welcome to Make Better Music! We hope you dig this issue and that it provides you with useful information in your quest to make better music.

In this edition, Chris Loeffler puts his foot down and explains how to choose the right pedalboard for your needs—and then explains the different guitar effect formats so you can make informed decisions for your guitar rig. Chris also goes beyond the blues with the Gibson ES-Les Paul Custom Black Beauty. Phil test drives the Fender Acoustic SFX Acoustic Instrument Amplifier, as well as waxes nostalgic with the beautifully done Martin Archives book. Craig gives the lowdown on parallel processing for your bass, presents a Craig’s List with somewhat disturbing uses for old CDs, and turns a vacation into a story by covering what it’s like not to be the target demographic for a music-themed cruise—and why he had a fantastic time anyway

Finally, guest contributor Blake Wright takes you to the Dwarfcraft Devices factory and gets all warm and fuzzed out.
