Just seen an updated version of the Roland Bluescube, which we recently reviewed (here).

There's a really cool new feature which opens up a world of opportunity. And it sounds like that saggy low end on the crunch channel has been sorted out.

We were given a run through of the new product by the talented Alex Hutchings, and we'll have that video as soon as we can physically get it onto the internet.

Okay, we've edited the full video for the crazy GTC Revpad device we were telling you about earlier.

It's a pad you attach to your guitar which communicates wirelessly with a multi-fx brain to deliver you some pretty far-out sounds.

Click here to check it out.

We did an interview with this little rock and roller earlier, here's part of the Rock And Roll High program, and is playing a Rock And Roll High guitar.

Video coming later. It's a must-watch for anyone who has children who are looking to learn guitar.

Really interesting product all the way from Israel.

We have a full video coming up on this later, but here's a sneak preview.

It's a pad which velcroes onto your guitar, and can control up to 8 effects at once.

Here you can see one axis controlling distortion mix, and the other axis controlling wah.

The press preview event kicks off in around 20 minutes, it's our first chance to sneak a peak at some of the new products on display this year and to film those products in action.

It's usually a cool mix of exhibitors, from global Goliaths to new startups.

We'll bring you some snippets of the action in this live blog, and our full video content will go up on site this afternoon (evening if you are in the UK).

So keep this page open in a tab and get the FIRST look at NAMM 2015 with SonicState Amped.
