Bass players, rejoice! We have a video preview of Gibson's hot new EB bass, a review of Squier's re-issue of the vintage Bass VI, and a technique article on...recording bass, of course. And there's also a review of Native Instruments' mind-boggling Komplete 9 Ultimate, Cerwin-Vega's P-Series powered speakers, the BBE Sonic Stomp, and Pearl's Horacio Henandez Signature Cowbells - which bring a whole new meaning to "more cowbell." Want a dose of tech, too? Keep your data from destruction with Jon Chappell's article on Windows Backup Strategies, then find out about whacked-out things you can do with today's software...fun stuff!

This week's issue features a mix of reviews and techniques articles - from clever pedals (Mooer and EarthQuaker devices), to KRK's third-generation Rockit monitors, to UVI's cool softsynth and Electro-Harmonix's analog-based Memory Toy chorus. Then find out how not to damage yourself when drumming (and how not to damage your acoustic instruments when the humidity drops), as well as how to do better mixes, change guitar tone for cheap, and place instruments in a soundstage. How's that for variety?
