Matt Margeson

DW JAZZ SERIES MAPLE/GUM 12/14/20X12 3PC DRUM KIT PEACOCK OYSTER

Matt's Pick

"DW Jazz Series drums are timeless and incredibly musical! This kit in particular has a warmth, and punch to it that is perfect for any musical situation. You'll love the response of these drums!"

Aaron Ehinger

Death by Audio Fuzz War

Aaron's Pick

"This pedal will give your tone the warm and fuzzies, but like, not the cute kind. With the massive sound you'd expect from any Death by Audio stompboxes, it will transform your guitar or bass into a weapon of sonic doom!"

Dan Jarvis

Fender CS Postmodern Precision/Jazz Bass Journeyman Relic

Dan's Pick

"The Journeyman Relic series from Fender feature some of the most beautifully aged finishes you will ever see and this one is no different. The body has some incredible checking lines and just the right amount of wear to give this bass a real vintage feel. The bass itself is a perfect combination of the Precision & Jazz Bass using a J-Bass neck on the classic P-Bass style body. You get the simplicity and punch of the P-Bass electronics (including an incredible hand-wound Custom Shop '62 style pickup) with the amazing comfort of the thiner Jazz Bass neck. This bass offers incredible playability and plenty of vintage style with a some nice modern appointments. It's the best of the both worlds when it comes to Fender basses!"

Mini Ibanez Effects Pedals

Alyssa's Pick

"There's nothing too special what these pedals, but what makes them so special is that they're small! These Ibanez Mini effects are miniaturized recreations of classic Ibanez pedals, and as such, they've saved me a bunch of space on my pedalboard. I now have the luxury of getting real weird with the rest of my effects setup without ditching some classic sounds."

Matt Kashuda

IBANEZ 7620 7-STRING SWIRL REFINISH

Matt's Pick

"This Ibanez is obnoxious and tacky and I love it. It is just shameless and absolutely glorious. Aside from the advanced aesthetic of this one, it actually sounds awesome and just plain rips! "

GIBSON CUSTOM SHOP 1964 FIREBIRD III VINTAGE SUNBURST

Alex's Pick

"Pure vintage rock and roll styling with attitude for days! This custom shop Gibson Firebird is sure to turn heads, just crank it up and feel the riffs burn."
