Summer NAMM 2014: Live Blog

Posts from Music City, Nashville   17-Jul-14

We love Nashville, its musical heritage seems to ooze from the buildings, the sound of exquisite Telecaster playing from bars on Main Street, the sultry heat, the Bourbon and the pork - mmmm.

And lets not forget Summer NAMM, its a much less frantic show, time to browse and chat and linger and  a wonderful new exhibition hall too.

Here's the latest from the show:

Jackson Ampworks - Introducing The Fullerton!! Designed as the ultimate Princeton Reverb style amplifier! Features an expanded 3 band EQ (Treble, Mid and Bass), a 3 knob all-tube spring reverb, a master Tone control (instead of a bright switch) and a Tweed control that selectively bypasses the EQ section of the amp and gives the user more tweed style breakup at a lower volume setting! To make the Fullerton even more flexible, we are using 4 6V6 output tubes for switchable 40/20W operation

do you really consider this a live blog? or had you high prospects but realized that it's more time-consuming than expected?
