Make Better Music with Harmony Central | View Online | V17.15

Welcome to Make Better Music!

It's Summer NAMM time—and Craig Anderton gets the scoop about cool gear in a hot city. Then he tells you what you need to know about guitar pickups, and brings FM synthesis back from the dead—are you ready for an FM revival? Chris Loeffler reviews the Keeler Sound ReWave Acoustic PreAmp, as well as the Earthquaker Devices Erupter Perfect Fuzz Pedal, then tiptoes through the tulips of ukulele fundamentals in his Juke N' the Uke article. Dendy tunes up the revamped Yamaha Recording Custom Drums, and Phil gives the lowdown on choosing a subwoofer. Gearphoria's Blake Wright visits Reverend Guitars and talks about the lust for (guitar) life…then take a walk down memory lane with our popular Rock Rewind.

If you've opened Make Better Music and don’t scroll down, you're missing out on some great content, reviews, and…ads. Huh? Ads? Well, we’re committed to maintaining only ads that relate to the music industry, so you can click without fear.

You Are The Industry

Did You Know You Are the Music Industry?

Dear Musician - Did you know you are the music industry? You have more influence than you may realize. After all, you’re in the driver’s seat because companies need to convince you to buy their gear. But how can you use that power to your best advantage?
