Heavy Leather Guitar Straps

Posted on 31 March 2010 by diode

The nice folks over at Heavy Leather NYC were kind enough to send us at the Music Gear Daily office a couple of their new high end guitar straps for review recently.  If the style is to your taste they are definitely high quality, handcrafted leather goods. The leather is very soft and seems that it would last a lifetime. They are heavy with all of the ornamentation, and may not fit everyone’s taste but if quality leather is your bag, these won’t disappoint. If they’re good enough for Lemmy, they’re good enough for you ;)

Aloha!

Posted on 10 June 2009 by diode

Hi All. Sorry no posts as of late. My wife and I have been vacationing in Hawaii … new content next week !

As an aside, after hearing the native Hawiian Ipu Heke drum, I thought that it could make a pretty great hip hop kick or even a kick/snare combo depending on how it’s played.

MIT Chameleon Guitar

Posted on 13 February 2009 by diode

Read the article from EETimes here

.chameleon-2-enlarged

“researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have combined digital signal processing with a removable sound board, enabling the Chameleon guitar to change its sonic characteristics by changing the type of wood used for the sound board. The design also retains the same guitar body, neck and frets”

An article on the MIT website is here.

Rickenbacker Model 331LS “Lightshow”

Posted on 12 December 2008 by fansofcollision

“The factory first offered the model 331, nicknamed the lightshow guitar, in 1970. It was the psychedelic spin-off of the model 330. Stephen F. Woodman and Marshall Arm created the initial design for the 331 and then licensed Rickenbacker to develop and manufacture it. Rickenbacker dropped the 331 from the pricesheets in 1975.”
