Summer NAMM 2014: Live Blog

Posts from Music City, Nashville      17/07/14

Buying Choices

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
