Make Better Music with Harmony Central | View Online | V17.7

Welcome to Make Better Music! One of our goals is to present a diversity of information, and this issue is no exception.

For the beats fans, Craig explains how to beef up wimpy analog drum sounds, but also fades in on a story about the Les Paul Faded. Dendy flips his bearing edge with an innovative snare drum from Grover Pro Percussion. Chris takes a load off his shoulder as he bench presses the new Michael Kelly Enlightened Weight Relief Collection. And while he was feeling enlightened, he lays out the difference between Single Coil and Humbucker pickups and cooks up an article on how to spice up your guitar sound. Meanwhile, Phil explores the high and low road as he demystifies high-pass and low-pass filters.

Guest contributor Travis Browning goes to the rodeo with Fender's Squier Bullet Mustang HH, and David Himes questions whether opening for a national act really is the ticket to fame.

Why Forums Why Now

Of course, this content is just part of the picture—the user reviews and forum posts from the community are what give Harmony Central its soul. But riddle me this: forums were written off as old-fashioned when Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. hit—yet Harmony Central has had six straight months of significant growth. We don’t have a definitive answer as to why, but we have some theories…
