Helsinki, Finland – The Microtubes 900™ is a 900W amplifier equipped with an all analog preamplifier and a Class D Power Module. The first thing you will notice from the Microtubes 900 is its unusual control layout:
On the right side you’ll find the clean section which is the foundation of your tone.
It features Gain and Master controls an active 4 band EQ. Along with Low and Treble controls you will find Low Mids and Hi Mids control, each knob with their own 3-way frequency switch.
On the left side you will find the Microtubes® Engine which acts as an extra channel that can bring your clean tone to the next level by helping you cut through the mix while adding anything from subtle tube break up, harmonics and natural compression to obliterating distortion.
We equipped the power module with some unique control over the power output and minimum speaker loads:
The standard mode will deliver 900W RMS at 4Ω/500W at 8Ω. If you select the 2Ω Mode via the rear panel switch the...
What happens when you pack Leo Fender's potent Magnetic Field Design bass humbucker into the sleek shape of his SB-2? The new G&L Kiloton: explosive power that's easy to handle.
Kiloton's silhouette is the most comfortable bass body ever created by Leo. It's compact and pure, with every curve and contour perfectly executed. And now it's carrying more firepower than ever, with Leo's G&L Magnetic Field Design humbucker placed right in the sweet spot he specified back when the sign over our door still read "CLF Research."
Kiloton's single MFD bucker fires without the aid of a preamp, while a 3-position series/split/parallel toggle harnesses the coils' power. Simple volume and tone controls are devastatingly effective, revealing a wide range of textures Leo's MFD bucker is famous for. What's more, Kiloton is armed with a 6-bolt neck and Leo Fender-designed Saddle-Lock™ bridge to transfer all the energy right into the body end-grain for an incredibly resonant instrument.

Since their broad market debut at Summer NAMM 1993, Elrick Bass Guitars, Ltd. has evolved to serve all facets of the bass guitar market offering multiple award winning instruments. One thing, however, has not changed, all US Series instruments remain individually hand-carved by founder Rob Elrick.
MONTCLAIR, NJ (August 30, 2016) - In California in the early '50s, the Fender company introduced the world's first electric bass guitar. Fender, a small startup at the time, couldn't have foreseen the impact that the Precision Bass would have, but the P Bass and the others that followed would help start a revolution in the sound of popular music. This new third edition of The Bass Book explains how that evolution happened and how its reverberations are still felt today.
The lineup of two guitars, bass, and drums that would define pop music found its heart with the Fender bass. The bass guitar provided the solid foundation upon which much modern music is still built. The Bass Book is the first to study its story, with the full low-down of the most important bass players and bass makers. Brands featured in the book include Alembic, Danelectro, Epiphone, Fender, Fodera, Gibson, Hofner, Ibanez, Lakland, Line 6, Music Man, Peavey, Rickenbacker, Sadowsky, Spector, Squier,...
