Kyle RalstonFender Amps – ’68 Custom Vibro Champ Reverb
At only 5 watts this little re-issue tone machine keeps all the characteristics of the original with one very important change. While he original had an 8″ speaker, Fender has equipped the new ’68 Champ with a larger 10″ Celestion Ten 30 to increase the low end. Includes the cover and a cool silver face look with all the “trimmings”, and included vibrato and reverb. Great for home (recording), work(small gigs), or play (rehearsals)!!!

Jim Baggett – Collings Acoustic Guitars – OM2H Traditional T Series
Nice bass response on this Orchestra Model, great for players looking for a slightly smaller guitar that still has a full sound.

Matt Pelsma – Universal Audio Effects Pedals – Astra Modulation Machine
I love when you plug into a vintage effect there’s a level of unpredictability and unique character that is otherwise missing in new effects. Universal Audio goes deep into emulating these quirks and oddities. This pedal is super fun for all your modulation needs. I had a hard time turning it off.

Brian Soden – JAM Pedals – TubeDreamer
This is quickly becoming one of my favorites. It’s hard to beat a TS style drive, but JAM Pedals has really dialed this circuit in. Sounds killer into the ’69 Fender Deluxe Reverb in the shop!

Mike Horan – Harmony Guitars – Juno – Rose
Excellent retro design, familiar yet unique. This American-made guitar has fret work equal to an instrument twice its price!

Susan Willits – Eastman Mandolins – MD315-CLA
We have the Eastman MD315 mandolins back in stock! These are great mandolins, at a really nice price. We currently have them with a pickup, or without, but they usually don’t sit around here very long!

Matt KappenmanCollings Acoustic Guitars – CJ-45 A T
This is one of those guitars that I find myself enjoying more every time I pick it up. Warm, and balanced with a mid-range projection that sounds great and a hint of compression that makes it a fantastic accompaniment for any sort of vocal performance. Bruce and Co. over at Collings went back and to the drawing board with this one, and came up with a really great sounding, vintage-inspired take, on the Wartime banner guitars that are so highly sought after.
