    Brett Kingman demoing the Smart Belle Belle Fuzz.

    I love that Brett did this. I was actually getting sick of hearing myself do these and he is just such a killer player.

    Billy Gibbons' Rio Grande 4x12

    I owned a Rio Grande 4-12. There were 4-12's and 2-12's. I sold mine to a friend. Just basically on oversized Marshall cab. The Rio Grande amps were just Marshall amps in different head shells.

    What's in the mail?

    Thanks for the mention. The first run is nearly sold out and so far everyone loves them. It's my favorite MK2 style fuzz that I have played and the bias and tone knobs really make it versatile.

    What happened to the Retro Channel RR1?

    Yeah guys, the issue with Retro Channel was a simple one. We were building a solid state amp in the USA. I will not build anything offshore. We could not compete with folks that were building their gear in China price wise. Did I learn my lesson? Hell no, I build my Smart Belle stuff in...

    Shin-ei Vibe-Bro

    Get in touch with Dustin Sears. Dustin was the one who put together the best vibe in Austin and then was roped into a bad deal with the guy that picked up the Sheni (or however you spell it) name and ran with it. Dustin's sounds a lot better and he is a really good person.

    Modelers with accurate Dumble Models?

    Guys to tell you the truth I have played 10 Dumbles over the years and have really liked 2. One Steel String Singer and the 70's Dumble that I sort of went for tone wise with the Smart Belle amps. I owned an amp built around the time Ford's was with the same circuit and it didn't work for me...

    Anyone own or play an ECCOS yet?

    Guys I have one and DO LOVE IT. Here is what they have accomplished that really gets me. This is a warm delay that does not wank your tone at all. There is as much headroom on this pedal as there is on my Korg SDD3000. This pedal DOES sound like a tape delay and the flanged repeats are...

    How do you get that sound?

    Thanks for all of the kind comments guys. Playing with my fingers instead of a pick is what finally defined MY style. It's a technique that is a very personal thing from player to player. If you look at other people that play that way they all do their thing in a unique way. Lindsey...

    Tone Does NOT Come From Your Hands...

    Well Granted... if you don't have your guitar face down nothing else matters. You have no idea how many times I have had an internet friendship with someone who has a ton of gear, knows everything about boutique and vintage gear and has big opinions on tone. Then I have met them in person and...
