Just finished our last run of filming. We got JHS pedals, Ibanez RG9, Ibanez Kaoss Pad, Decibel Eleven, Dragoon, Knaggs and a sweet new locking pedal board system from Temple Audio.

This was fun. Videos coming soon.

We love you guys, thanks for watching our videos and putting up with our silly British accents!

The Line 6 Amplifi seems to be dividing opinion in a big way.

We have a video of it in action going online today, we don't to influence you too much, but it seems like a cool concept but doesn't have 'the tone' by any stretch.

Maybe now that they're owned by Yamaha they can pool R&D with the THR guys and come up with better digital modelling.

Just interviewed Peter Wolf from Knaggs guitars, all round cool guy.

Very beautiful guitars on the stand at Knaggs. Video coming soon!

The Dr Pepper might just have saved us this morning.

We like to be honest with our readers, just be gentle with us today. It was all Nick Batt's fault. Now off to the NAMM show to hear loud noises and shout lots.

Perfect!
