December is the busiest time of the year for The Turner Guitar Studio, so we have been getting in tonnes of fantastic new guitars, electronics, accessories, and other unique instruments. There are far too many to list here, so I will list a few of my favourites.
For all of our Christmas Specials, see our last post http://turnerguitar.blogspot.ca/2014/11/holiday-specials-2014.html
We have received a variety of new Samson microphones. The new mics include Samsons Brand New METEORITE USB condenser Microphone, the CL2 Pencil condenser mic pair, the MTR231 Pattern switchable condenser mic, the VR88 Velocity Ribbon Mic, and the SWXPD1HQ6 wireless dynamic mic. Check them all out by visiting http://www.samsontech.com/samson/products/microphones/
The U-Bass is one of Kala's newest creations, which use somee unique strings in order to produce extremely low frequency notes on a very short scale instrument. This allows them to tune an instrument with a 20" scale neck, to the same notes as a Bass with a 34" scale neck. The strings feel a little odd at first, but they are very easy to press down, and the short scale makes the reach between the frets, and access to the whole neck easy enough for even young children to play. They all come with electronics built in with a tuner, and tone/volume controls for the output. They are available in a variety of wood variations and styles, which you can see by visiting: http://www.kalabrand.com/instrumentsU-bass.html
We currently have two models in stock, one of which is an all mahogany body, with a matte finish. The other has a solid spruce top, with mahogany back and sides, and is a fretless model, for those who really want to get an upright bass type tone from the instrument.
Levy's Leathers Guitar Straps
We have recently received over $2000.00 worth of Levy's Leathers guitar straps, with some great new styles, designs and colours. Levy's has been manufacturing high quality Leather guitar straps and gig bags in Canada for over 40 years, with some very unique designs, unbeatable quality, and good value.

Vox Amplug 2 Headphone Amplifiers
I've posted before about the Vox AmPlugs, and their incredibly convenient AmPhones, but now they have released an updated version of the AmPlug, simply called the AmPlug 2. The new version features the same size, look, and tones as the original AmPlug, but they have added in 3 digital effects (delay,reverb, and chorus on most models), and a swiveling plug, allowing it to fit more conveniently into a variety of output jacks. The best thing about the new AmPlugs, is that they are still the same price as the previous versions. Also with the old versions no longer available, we are clearing out any remaining stock at great discounts, just in time for Christmas.
Marshall JCM 2000
This is a brilliant, portable, and great sounding hand wired, UK made, all tube combo amp. With it's G8C-15 Celestion 8" speaker, 1 Watt Class A all tube, twin channel design, it gives you that classic Marshall tone, at bedroom volume levels. There is also a switch on the back that changes it from 1 Watt to 0.1 Watt, so no matter how quiet you need to be, you can get the Marshall tube overdrive tone. It also is equipped with a vast array of features, including a Gain on volume on each channel, a 3-band EQ, a "tone shift", and a "Deep" switch, an effects loop, an emulated line out, and a channel selecting footswitch. You can easily plug the amp into a large cab with the speaker output, for much higher volume as well.
Washburn is the manufacturer behind the best selling acoustic guitar in the world the D10S. With it's solid sitka spruce top, mahogany back and sides, and simple, yet attractive adornments, it offered incredible value for the money. They replaced the D10S with the WD10S, switching out some of it's aesthetics to match their changing line, and the WD10S is still incredibly popular. However, for a limited time, with one large production run, Washburn is Re-issuing their D10S, calling it the D10SK-RE. They have included an awesome gig bag with the re-issue models, and have gone back to everything that made the guitar such a fantastic buy. If you are looking for a first guitar, an upgrade from an entry level into something a lot better, without spending much, or just another guitar to add to a collection, you may want to check out the D10SK-RE.
