Fresh FX from TC Electronic
Well it took them long enough but the good folks at TC Electronic finally made a tremolo pedal! This is great news because there is a has been a serious lack of volume-modulating-vintage-wobbly goodness from many of our other pedal manufacturers of late and the new TC Electronic Pipeline has filled the void nicely. Like everything that TC Electronicdo the pipeline is a feature-rich tone machine. Packed with 3 distinct modes (Vintage, Toneprint & Square) this tremolo can emulate all the classic trem and vibrato circuits reminiscent of classic amps as well as mind bending modern effects never before heard. The pedal also features integrated tap tempo for controlling pulse rate. Utilising the toneprint app on a desktop will also provide a vast array of deep editing features which makes this one of the most versatile tremolos we have seen.
In addition to the pipeline we have also taken delivery of the updated Hall of Fame 2 Reverb and the Flashback Delay/Looper. Both of these pedasl feature TC Electronic's new MASH footswitch, a pressure-sensitive controller that can be programmed to control various parameters of your effects signal. It is basically an integrated expression pedal that saves room on your board and opens up new tonal possibilities for these units.
Swing by the shop and give them a blast!
Fresh Batch of Squier Electrics Just In!
The shelves are freshly packed with some brand new Squier Electrics by Fender.
This week has seen the return of our beloved Surf Green Jaguar. Made to 60's spec this guitar is a comfy 24 inch scale with heaps of tonal variety, perfect for any player.
Another favourite is the J Mascis Signature Jazzmaster. This beauty comes stock with a few of the standard modifications traditionally made to Jazzmasters such as an adjust-o-matic bridge, increased back angle in the neck pocket and and higher tremolo position for increased sustain and reduced buzzzzz.
The surprise candidate in this shipment is the Affinity Fat Strat in Slick Silver. Although this guitar is one of the lower priced models offered by Squier we were blown away by the authenticity of it's Stratty tone. The colour looks amazing as well.
Paul Reed Smith Guitars
The latest guitars to grace the floors of Southern Music are the 2017 range of PRS SE instruments.
For those who are unfamiliar, PRS SE are a range of guitars that have been designed and developed by leading custom guitar man Paul Reed Smith at a super affordable price. Each model compromises of classic set mahogany neck construction with mahogany bodies and a variety of timber caps and finishes. The hardware and pickups have all been designed and developed under the guidance of Paul Reed Smith that result in a range of guitars that sound and play well above their price point.
Our first shipment includes the Custom 22 and 24 models, the Mark Holcomb signature and the LP inspired SE 245. We also ordered a Santana signature but local blues legend Chris Finnen snapped that up already.
Swing by and check out these awesome instruments!
Vox MV50 Mini Heads!
Believe the Hype!
The all new MV50 Guitar amps from Vox landed in store at Southern Music this month and we are totally blown away by these things.
Each unit packs a single NuTube, one of 3 tone stacks (British AC, Rock or Clean) and 50 watts of D Class power into a guitar amp that is the size of a Cheeseburger, and boy are they tasty!
Swing by and have a listen. We've got all 3 models in stock as well as the matching 1x10 or 1x12 cabinets. We have also been running the MV50 Rock through one of our 4x12 cabs which sounds unbelievable.
