Josh BaldridgeMartin Acoustic Guitars – 1917 1-26
For those who are into older small body guitars, this is a special one. The Brazilian rosewood back and sides are crack free and beautiful. The neck is slimmer than you might expect, with a very soft v-profile to it. I love paying this little gem.

Brian Soden – BIG EAR Pedals – WOODCUTTER Distortion – Ruby Red Sparkle
I have what I call “staple” pedals on my board that never leave. I always have to have a great mild overdrive, a solid medium gain overdrive, a simple go-to tremolo, an analog delay, etc. Now, included in that list of staples is a “rodent” style distortion, thanks to the good folks at BIG EAR Pedals and their killer WOODCUTTER distortion! This distortion is a total blast to play, guys. Huge, thick distortion with fantastic string-to-string clarity. I’m absolutely in love with mine! Get yourself one in our limited “Ruby Red Sparkle” finish!!

Mike Horan – Waterloo by Collings – WL-M Mandolin
This is one sweet little mandolin! It responds nicely to a strong pick attack, producing an excellent bark and ear-splitting tremolos. If you’re looking for something to recreate the sound of the 1930s brother duets (Monroe Brothers, Blue Sky Boys) or a great Irish session instrument, this mandolin is for you.

Matt KappenmanTom Anderson Electric Guitars – T Icon – Sonic Blue In-Distress Level 2
This is an extremely resonant electric and a real joy to play, plugged in and even unplugged! The stainless steel medium frets feel comfy and with the buzz feiten tuning system this guitar sounds great anywhere up and down the neck. The humbucker/single coil pickup combo is extremely versatile for all sorts of playing. 5-way switching delivers a host of tones in both series and parallel. I also love the look and feel of the nitro finish.
