March Inventory Update

  As usual, we've been getting into a lot of new gear over the past month or two. I've been somewhat negligent in writing these updates of late, so this will include more products than usual, with somewhat briefer descriptions. Let me know if you'd like to know more about any of the products here by e-mailing me at, or calling 780-278-3679.

Marshall JVM410H and 1936 2x12 Cab
  We have recently received a shipment with a Marshall JVM410 head and "1936" 2x12" speaker cabinet. This is a 100 Watt, British built, all tube amp, with 4 separate channels. It has independent 3-band EQs on each channel, as well as reverb, gain, and volume controls, with a programmable 6-button foot-switch for switch for selecting things on the go. It is also equipped with a variety of outputs to suit most cab stack combinations, an effects loop, as well as line and midi outputs.
The 100 watt tube power amp offers up enough power for almost any occasion, while the on board distortions give you great tone at any volume level. The 4 channels each offer a unique tone, and different distortion type, so it can suit a wide variety of music styles.
   If you are looking for a great performance amp, with enough power for most venues, enough versatility for all your music, and the tone that made Marshall amps the Legend they are; come try out the JVM410.…/amplifie…/jvm4-series/jvm410h/

Breedlove COMOO25B Mandolin
  This is one of Breedlove's least expensive mandolins. However; with a Solid spruce top, maple back and sides, rosewood fingerboard and bridge, and Breedloves unique Mandolin design, it sounds and plays much better than most others in the price range. Part of Breedloves design includes a wider neck, giving much more space for your fingers between the pairs of strings, as well as a radiused fretboard, and larger frets, for a much easier playing experience. It is in a semi-gloss black finish, with little in the way of fancy appointments, contributing to it's exceptional value.

Breedlove Studio SDX21CE 12-string Acoustic
  Breedlove's Studio series of acoustics are excellent buys for someone looking to upgrade from an entry level or midrange instrument, into a pro level model, without going overboard on the price. With a Solid Spruce top, Mahogany, back and sides, Grover die-cast machineheads, L.R. Baggs LR-V-TC pick-up system + tuner, and Breedlove's ingenious bridge truss system, the guitar is ready for anything. The wood combination along with the concert body size, gives you one of the most versatile acoustic tones around, working well in almost any application, and almost any genre. The brightness of the spruce is well tempered by the midrange produced by the mahogany, and focused by the body size. Often Small bodied guitars (especially 12-strings) suffer from a lack of low end. But due to Breedlove's bridge truss system, and forward X-brancing patter, it has a well rounded low end as well. The bridge truss also greatly contributes to the instruments stability in varying climates, and with heavier string gauges, which is a huge benefit on a 12-string guitar especially.
   The L.R. Baggs Pick-up system has a very natural tone, and allows for a lot of control while on stage. The on board tuner is also very easy to use, and is among my favourite of all built in tuners. The guitar also comes with a heavy duty, semi-rigid gig bag, ideal for those who want the most protection out of their cases, without sacrificing portability and convenience (such as back-pack straps).

Breedlove Premier Concert Rosewood Acoustic
  Breedlove's Premier line of acoustics are all hand made in Bend, Oregon, USA, with 25.5" scale necks, and are equipped with L.R. Baggs' EAS VTC pick-up system, and Graphtech Tusq nuts and saddles. This model is made from Solid East Indian Rosewood and Solid Sitka Spruce, and has a Hondurian mahogany neck, and African Ebony fingerboard and bridge. The Concert body size, soft cut-away, and exceptional set-up, contribute to a wonderful playing experience. The Rosewood back and sides, and sitka spruce top give the guitar a lot of projection, depth, and clarity, while the smaller body keeps the low end from overpowering everything. It is an ideal guitar for a studio or stage musician who wants a transparent tone that is easily fit into a mix, while maintaining it's richness and character.
   It comes with a beautiful Custom Breedlove hardshell case, for protection when bringing it to and from all the gigs you'll be playing with this beauty.

Hagstrom Ultra-Swede Sterling Silver Finish
  It's been a while since I've done a write up on a new Hagstrom, so I figure it's time I give them some more attention. The new Ultra-swede we've received in a Sterling Silver finish, is equipped with all the features we've come to love from Hagstrom. This includes their H-Expander Truss Rod, Resinator wood fingerboard, and Hagstrom's beautiful 15-1 die-cast machine heads. The Ultra-swede is equipped with Hagstrom's Custom 62 Humbuckers, which are a great sounding high output, passive pick-up, with a coil tap switch for single coil tones. The guitar has a very slim neck profile (allowed by the added strength of the H-Expander Truss rod), set into a slim profile body. The small dimensions make the guitar lighter, and thus more comfortable to sit or stand with, and the thin neck allows for a faster playing experience. Also available in a variety of other colours, and with a Floyd Rose bridge option, the Ultra-swede is our best selling electric in the price range for good reason.

Vox Mark V (V-MK5-B) Electric Bass
  The Vox Mark V bass uses one of Vox's oldest body designs called the Phantom. With two single coil pick-ups, two volume, and one tone control, it's not overly versatile, but it does have a nice vintage tone and feel to it. The bass only has a 30" scale, and a fairly norrow fingerboard, so those with small hands and short arms will have a much easier time playing this than the majority of basses on the market. The bass also comes with a nice custom gig bag for protection when transporting it.

Vox AC4C1-12
  This is one of Vox's newest releases. With the same circuitry and controls as the AC4C1-BL, you get Vox's classic "Top Boost" channel tone, while the low wattage power section allows for a fantastic tube overdrive tone at even low volumes. The EL84 power tube, and pair of 12AX7 pre-amp tubes, run 4 watts through a 1x12 Custom speaker. Compared to the standard AC4 models, the AC4C1-12 will offer a lot more volume overall due to it's larger speaker, yet will still retain the slightly compressed tone, and easily accessible tube overdrive as the smaller versions. The amp is only available in Vox's classic look, with a black exterior and their brown diamond cloth grill.

Korg Krome 61

 The Korg Krome is one of Korg's workstation keyboards. With hundreds of high quality, editable samples, a touch screen display and variety of hard knobs and buttons for easy interaction, sequencers, arpeggiators, and more; the Krome-61 will do almost anything you need live, or in the studio. The 61 key version has semi-weighted keys, for a fast response, and extra portability. The keybed can be split into sections and transposed for increased versatility, and you can change the sounds, and layer sounds differently in each section. The model we have in stock is in a nice matte red finish, which looks stunning. We also got the keyboard on sale, so we have it marked down a fair bit from it's regular price.
