We have reviewed the brilliant and forward thinking Balanced Tension strings from D’Addario. Have a read and have a try!
”It was always going to be D’Addario who pushed the boundaries and came up with a new perspective on what a set of 10-46s should be.”
Evidence Audio have released the new SIS Plugs for the ultimate solderless patch cable.
”Most other solderless cables use coaxial type where a pin is pushed into the middle of the cable to create the ‘tip’ connection. This means they must use a gripping mechanism to keep the cable connected. This is often achieve by pinching or driving a screw in to the side of the cable. Although this works it can cause problems if the cable has to be detached and reconnected, it causes cable damage if pulled around which can affect the grounding and therefore reliability.”
I have just received our stock of the Torpedo CAB simulator from Two Notes. I used an ADA APP-1 preamp and headphones to test it..
The build quality is superb with a heavy duty chassis and really solid buttons that ‘clunk’ under foot. I used a pair of AKG 44 headphones which are very cheap but found the sound the Torpedo CAB delivered was incredible. There is a huge amount of variation in the preset patches but they all have great sounds so you can quickly pick the right sounding Cab.
