The Gretsch god returns with a vengeance on his first vocal-less
disc, Setzer Goes Instru-MENTAL—a tour de force of jazz, honky-tonk, and rockabilly revelry, as well as badass banjo twangery.
We talk to the pompadoured icon about what inspired this
album’s departures, his latest gear finds, and more.
The legendary James Brown and Parliament-Funkadelic bassist
talks to Premier Guitar about his new album, Funk University,
his famous star basses, and the key to his infectious enthusiasm.
Learn how to orchestrate your songs and work them into the
framework of large and diverse instrumentation with Rich
Tozzoli’s informative exploration of 6-string polyphony.
Steve Pedulla and Tom Keeley from the influential post-hardcore
outfit talk about their new album, No Devolución, and how they
craft a smorgasbord of tones with twin Teles driving Bogner, Bad
Cat, Marshall, and Vox amps.
Is it really possible to make powerful, impeccable-sounding bass
heads and cabinets that you can lift with your pinky finger? The
idea sounds absurd—like there’s no way you could have that sort
of convenience and stellar tones—but Nick Epifani has proved
it possible. We take you inside the shop of one of the most for-ward-thinking bass-amp manufacturers in the business today.
