We're not normally one for blatant axe-fueled content here, but we do have our moments. Witness the Line 6 Gold Bundle and Pocket Pod, TC Electronic Classic pedals etc, but we couldn't pass up the opportunity to have ace guitarist Rob Chappers tell us his thoughts on the simplest of accessories - the plectrum. Often overlooked as an easily discarded piece of plastic, the plectrum is the connection between a man and his plank and greatly affects the the tone and playing characteristics of the performer. In this rock-u-mentary, Rob takes us to Musik Messe to meet some of the best shredders in the business and talk plectrums, plus he throws in a couple of tips too. About Chappers
Rob is a great guitarist. He recently recorded with his band The Black Hand at Abbey Road with legendary rock producer Eddie Kramer (Hendrix, Led Zeppelin etc) where he was given significant kudos by the man. This sort of thing isn't unusual, he's often praised for his great technique and perhaps more importantly his feel and understanding of how and when to play - that and he's a great bloke too. Already a star via his Youtube channel and with endorsements from Orange, PRS and MXR, he's gearing up for some serious live work and promotion with his band The Black Hand - expect to see more of Rob soon.
