Branthony's Pick

Radial Pro Audio Products

Branthony's Pick

"We LOVE the Radial products because they sound great and are built like a tank. Whether tracking bass direct or changing impedance on stage, Radial products are not just a lifesaver, they’re a necessity for the working musician."

Chris's Pick

Kemper Amps Profiler Powerhead

Chris' Pick

"As much as I love a vintage Stratocaster plugged into a vintage Fender Bassman, my background and education in industrial design kicks in and urges me to seek innovative and modern new instruments and amplifiers. The Kemper Profiling Amplifier can achieve any tone imaginable from tube-screamer boosted EVH 5150 III hooked up into a Mesa Boogie 4X12 to a 1959 Fender Bassman with a touch of reverb and everything in between. You can use this with a traditional speaker cabinet and utilize the 600 watt built-in power amp, or run it directly into the PA or FOH at your gig if you'd like to travel light. The direct out also makes recording an absolute breeze. All in all, this tool provides you with everything you'd ever want in a portable lightweight package. Did I mention it looks like a futuristic toaster?!"

Marc's Pick

Gibson Thunderbird Bass Black Bicentennial 1979

Marc's Pick

"This thing is one of the coolest, nastiest, toughest basses we've ever seen. The pickups blanket the room with warm, gooey bass and it, simply put, RIPS!"
