From the Editor's Desk


Welcome to “Make Better Music.” This week Craig helps acoustic guitarists dial in a sweeter sound in our feature article, while Phil puts his review microscope on Blue's Lola headphones and Peavey's Classic 30 amp. Our latest Pro Review dissects the UJAM Virtual Guitarist-IRON plug-in to see if it hits all the right notes for realistic virtual guitar parts, while Russ Loeffler checks out the surprising talents of Eventide's H9 Max. There are so many gear options, and the the choices are growing.

Speaking of choices; what guest editor Brian Majeski from Music Trades Magazine says about "The Baskin-Robbins Effect and NAMM" is thought-provoking and on target...Brian, the mic is yours.

PERHAPS THE MOST commonly asked question at the NAMM show is, "Have you seen any really hot products?" In years past, whenever you asked the question, you'd get a list of "must see" items. These days, however, it's more often greeted with a shrug, a pause, or perhaps a non-committal answer like, "nothing amazing, but I saw a few cool guitars, I like the brand x tuner, and brand Z is offering a decent new keyboard." Do these diffident replies indicate that industry R&D teams are falling down on the job? Have we become so accustomed to revolutionary technologies like smartphones and Bluetooth that we don't impress easily? Or is something else at work here?
