From the Editor's Desk


Welcome to “Make Better Music.” In this edition, Team HC gives you the inside story on the making of the Masterbilt Century Guitars, and what it took to make something old new again. Chris Loeffler tortures an Effingood Amp, and gets…uh…”organic” (or at least organ-like) with the Lester "K" Rotary Speaker Pedal from Electro-Harmonix. Craig Anderton no longer dismisses capos as silly: find out why in his review of the G7th Performance 2 Capo. And Phil O'Keefe slows down licks to speed up his learning curve with the Manly Guitar Works Riffmaster Pro, while upgrading his virtual drums Americana-Style with FXpansion's BFD Horsepower Drum Sample Expansion Pack for BFD 3.
