The Little 40 L34 is a one-channel, 40W all-tube head.

Although simpler than our larger, multi-channel Bad Boy 120, it’s no less versatile. Its secret weapon is the DV Mark patent pending Continuous Power Control (CPC) feature, which allows you to actually change the amp’s power incrementally, from the full 40W (class A/B) gradually all the way down to 1W (class A) in pentode mode, or 15W (class A/B) to 0.5W (class A) in triode mode. This means you can get the tone you want at the volume you need… making the amp perfect for both bedrooms and concert stages!

Depending on your gain level and CPC setting, you can use the Solo boost switch as a drive channel.

The Little 40 L34 automatically biases and matches the output tubes and thanks to the Service port can be connected to the optional DVM Controller interface, which displays many internal amp parameters such as voltages and tube life to help you maintain the amp to its full potential.

Fender Telecaster vs GL ASAT Classic Telecaster

Fender Telecaster vs G&L ASAT Classic Telecaster

Here’s a video I made explaining my personal experience between the Fender Telecasters and the G&L Telecasters.   I don’t think one is better than the other, they are both great, it just comes down to personal choice.  The G&L is a lot heavier but it’s arguably a nicer finish, especially on the neck.  Since making the video demo above, I have since notice how fast the Fender vintage fretts wear down.  I am soon to have my Telecaster refretted with Jumbo frets as the G&L is very, very nice to play because of the larger frets.  The stock pickups in the Fender were very average, as they were back in the old days.  I did like the tone but they were not very good even with a Tubescreamer.  Any higher gain would make the pickups squeel.  The stock G&L pickups are awesome, I’ve had no problems with them.  The one thing about this Fender 52 reissue guitar is that it’s made as per the old days so modern pickups do not have the same problems that these vintage style ones have.  If you like vintage style guitars the Fender 52 reissue Telecaster is great.

Tokai Love Rock Guitar Review

Tokai Love Rock Guitar Review

Here are two video demos of my Korean made Tokai Love Rock.  This guitar has two vintage voiced humbucker pickups and is a dream to play.  It sounds more open sounding than my black Epiphone Les Paul and it’s one guitar I should of kept.  I have my eye out for another one down the track.  Tokai make the best Gibson style guitars on the planet and it’s no surprise that with today’s standards of Gibson, they are really standing out in terms of quality, tone and reliability.

This is a video demo of the Heritage Patriot 40 Watt Tube Guitar Amplifier.  Ric is playing guitar in this video and we have used a close mic on the amplifier, as well as a room microphone a little further back to capture the audio of the amp with a proper audio mix.

VOX Satchurator Pedal Review

VOX Satchurator Pedal Review

VOX Satchurator “Joe Satriani” Pedal

Thanks to the rock garage for letting use and demo this pedal for my channel

Check it out online at the Rock Garage Website

Official VOX Joe Satriani Website:

Pedal information:

VOX is pleased to introduce the first pedal in an ongoing collaboration with guitar icon Joe Satriani.

Drawing on Joe Satriani’s knowledge accumulated from decades of groundbreaking performances, both live and in the studio, VOX unveils a breakthrough in guitar tone — The Satchurator™ distortion pedal. Designed to Satriani’s exact specifications. The Satchurator produces Satriani’s signature tone and adds new features and improvements never before combined in a distortion pedal.

After almost a year of painstaking experimentation and road testing, Satriani and the VOX R&D team discovered the secrets to capturing the ultimate distortion tone in a modern-day pedal. The Satchurator is capable of very high gain levels, but operates more quietly and musically than other modern distortion pedals.

It also preserves the tone and pick-attack of the guitarist plugging into it, regardless of style, from subtly distorted blues tones through classic rock and shred. The result is a professional-quality pedal that recaptures sought-after vintage and modern sounds in a powerful, versatile and extremely musical pedal design.

“The Satchurator is the most musical, most dynamic, multi-function distortion pedal I’ve ever played through” says Satriani. “This little red box is a monster tone generator. Following my specifications without compromise, and adding design innovations I never thought possible, the VOX team has delivered exactly what I need for the stage as well as the studio: a distortion pedal that responds to my touch, and produces a big, natural, harmonically rich tone compatible with any guitar/pedal/amp configuration.
