THE MONSTERS OF HIGH GAIN
A special online-exclusive video roundup!
Whether you’re in the market for a new high-gain head or you just
spend your free time searching for heavy riffage on You Tube, you’ll
want to redirect your browser to premierguitar.com/dec2010 and
get that bookmark function ready. This month, we gathered 13 of
the hottest high-gain amps on the market, brought in ace guitarists
Misha Mansoor (Periphery) and Ty Dietzler (Thousand Foot Krutch),
and let the cameras roll. Listen to both guitarists tearing up each
channel of each amp listed to the right in CD-quality sound, and
get a rundown of each amp’s main features. If you’re looking for
a stripped-down metal machine or an amp stuffed with high-tech
tools, there’s surely a monster for you.
When we decided to inter-
view the talented and eccen-
tric country and psychobilly
guitarist Unknown Hinson,
we knew a written article
wouldn’t do him justice.
Turn on and strap in for an
entertaining podcast where
