NEXT MONTH IN
Tube Primer, Part 2
Did this month’s preamp tube tutorial from gear guru Dave Hunter stir up your appetite
for more learnin’? Be sure to keep an eye out for next month’s installment, where he’ll
discuss output tubes.
Hot Rod Guitars They’re Baaaack! From single pickup/single knob, San Dimas-style rippers to souped-up Super Strats, customized, dive-bombing rock machines are definitely ready to rumble once again. <<<
Can’t decide whether you’re truly a ‘T’ man or an ‘S’ guy? Now you don’t have to.
We get up close and personal with the new Telstar from Destroy All Guitars, which aims
to be the perfect hybrid of Leo Fender’s two most famous creations. The appearance of
this guitar is at once both strangely familiar and excitingly new—and it might just send
you into orbit.
Just when you thought you’d tracked down every method for getting an unruly amp to
give up incredible tone at lower SPL… We talk to Steve Carey, founder and President
of Flux Tone, about the inspiration for his VMT system and look into his rockin’ line of
speakers that’ll tame your over-the-top amp without attenuation.
Swing by the Tone Chamber, where our reviewers will spend some time with the Line
6 M13 Stompbox Modeler, Voodoo Labs Wahzoo (the first wah pedal with tap tempo
control), as well as impressive new guitars from Vigier and the Jackson Custom Shop.
Plus—columns, lessons and of course, tips on refining your tone. Only in Premier Guitar’s February issue!
