Josh BaldridgeCollings Acoustic Guitars – 01 Mh Traditional T Series
Warm, mellow tones from a small body guitar that is extremely resonant and responsive. This guitar has been turning heads around the shop all week.

Eric PutnamStomp Under Foot – Pink Hellephant
We did this custom pedal with the crew from Stomp Under Foot, and it is a really fun pedal. It has a Fuzz Face circuit and an Overdrive in the same enclosure. Both can be used individually, or you can stack them for over the top fuzz tones. The most exciting thing about this pedal is the spiffy elephant art work created by yours truly with magic computer help from Matt K!

Matt Pelsma – Don Grosh – Electrajet Custom Metallic Orange Pearl
Don’s guitars are always super consistent and a joy to play. Guitar to guitar, I haven’t found one I dislike both in sound and feel. This one takes on an interstellar hippie look, but don’t shy away from standing out. Ask us about putting together your dream guitar from one of the best builders in the world.

Brian Soden – Eastman Acoustic Guitars – E1OOSS-LTD
The perfect couch guitar that is gig-ready for grab-and-go shows and coffee shop gigs. Classic look and feel with a fun vibe that just calls out to be picked up for a quick strum when you walk by (which is what I do every time I pass it!). It sounds sooo good, too. The total package!

Mike Horan – PreSonus Audio Interfaces – Audiobox USB 96
I tend to be a bit of a Luddite when it comes to technology, but I just started using this great little box. I like to record my own backing tracks for practice purposes and this thing fits the bill simply and economically. I plug my Rode NT-5 in and run a cable to my laptop, recognize it in Garageband and I’m ready to go. Great fidelity and easy to use.

Matt Harmon – Waterloo by Collings – WL-14 X Truss Rod – Black – Tigerstripe
When I laid eyes on our first WL-14 in black I thought it would look so good with a tigerstripe guard instead of a cream one. It’s taken a few years but now we have one!

Trey DurkinBart Reiter Banjos – Round Peak
Every one of these we’ve had in has been a great banjo. This is the same model I play, and I’ve been extremely happy with my banjo over the last few years. Great build quality, with quality woods and a thin lacquer finish, at a great price. I particularly enjoy the enhanced depth and resonance the 12″ pot delivers.

Susan Willits – Eastman Mandolins – MDA315 Mandola
This Eastman MDA315 Mandola is almost too much fun! Extremely nice build quality with this all solid wood instrument. Great for taking leads, or playing rhythm, giving your fingers a little stretch. I love a good, low end bark on mandolin, so this mandola is especially fun with the open low C growl! Really fun!!
