Alex Le Veque

Matthews Effects Harbinger

Alex's Pick

"Not just another overdrive pedal, the Matthews Effects Harbringer packs the infamous LM308 chip found in the legendary 90's ProCo Rat, and a fully adjustable parametric overdrive EQ. With the parametric EQ placed before the snarling gain stage you're overdrive possibilities are endless. Perfect for all things heavy, fast, and aggressive."

Mike Hussa

Meinl Extra Dry Dual 15" Hi Hats

Mike's Pick

"Hands down, my favorite hi hats out right now. These hats are nice and dry, but also project very nicely. They feel great to lay into on the edge for nice warmth and wash, or towards the center for more stick definition. The finish it pretty unique and cool looking too!"

Tim Bailey

John Calhoon Parlor acoustic

Tim's Pick

"This is a very cool little vintage acoustic. It won't give up - this guitar has had tons of repairs that have kept it going. For it's age and condition - this Parlor is very comfortable to play."
