Hillsboro, Illinois — Sheptone® debut its new line of bass strings with the introduction of their medium-light, nickel plated set. Featuring a comfortable and popular gauge combination of .045/.065/.085/.105, any similarities to others on the market stops right there. Tone, performance, and quality have become benchmarks of Sheptone’s history. These strings represent the next phase of that tradition.
With a warm, round tone, Sheptone’s handcrafted nickel plated, electric bass strings are designed for players wanting to achieve the tone they hear in their head and feel in their soul. Each string is made on a U.S.A. workbench using the best domestically sourced, raw materials available.

It’s a process. But it’s the Sheptone process and it’s what it takes to deliver...

Under it's new ownership, DigiTech® returns to production with the SDRUM Strummable Drums™, the first-ever intelligent drum machine for guitarists and bassists. Boasting studio-quality samples and five professional sounding drum kits and BeatScratch™ technology, SDRUM allows users to create drum patterns by simply strumming strings.
As a player scratches across guitar or bass strings, he or she “teaches” SDRUM a kick/snare pattern that defines a desired beat. Once that pattern is established, SDRUM then enhances and enriches the beat, resulting in a realistic accompanying drum part. From the five different kits, users are able to choose sounds appropriate to a broad variety of musical styles. Via the KICK and SNARE Pads, players can audition the various kits and tap in specific beats, while the GUITAR AUDITION Button enables the user to turn the drum output on or off while strumming.
Up to 36 songs can be stored in SDRUM, and the unit supports three different components – e.g....

Frank Bello has been an avid and consistent Tech 21 user for several decades. The SansAmp Bass Driver DI became his weapon of choice not only for Anthrax, but for his solo efforts as well.
The Frank Bello Street Driver 48 features a Dirt switch for extra gain and overdrive, and a Filth switch for extra top-end sizzle and razor edge clarity to emphasize your attack. Controls include Drive for gain and overdrive, Low & High active EQ, and Level.
In addition to the specific tones Frank wanted, a major priority was to make the Street Driver 48 simple to operate. He didn’t want an excessive amount of knobs and switches, or gratuitous bells & whistles. He wanted players to be able to get a great sound right out of the box, whether it’s for metal or R&B or prog rock, whether the player is a novice or expert, young or advanced in years.
As is the case with all Tech 21 Signature SansAmps, the Frank Bello Street Driver 48 offers his core sounds and the versatility for many different...
