LA Amp Show '10 - Two Notes Torpedo VM-202 Demo

November 12, 2010
PG's Joe Coffey is On Location at the 2010 LA Amp Show where he visits the Two Notes Engineering room. In this segment, we get our first look and listen at Two Notes' VM-202.

The VM-202 is a dual-processor guitar/bass cab simulator. It handles both analog (line balanced/unbalanced) and digital signals. For it to work, you simply plug in your bass/guitar preamp (or other instrument with a line output) and you go straight into an exclusive tube stage simulator, along with the acclaimed Torpedo algorithm. You can play two cab + microphone simulations simultaneously and reproduce a multi-microphone miking process. The package includes over 50 speaker simulations, 50 speakers simulations, 8 microphone simulations, and 100 presets.

LA Amp Show '10 - WhiteBox Engineering Cabinets

November 12, 2010
PG's Joe Coffey is On Location at the 2010 LA Amp Show where he visits the WhiteBox Engineering room. In this segment, we get the scoop from Douglas White on what the new company is all about.

WhiteBox builds high-quality, custom guitar cabinets in USA and markets them through the company's online store. Customization of the WhiteBox product range only starts with the colors and fabrics available -- the more important customization comes from the ability to choose from a wide range of speakers. WhiteBox offers the highly-popular Vintage 30 and G12K-100 from Celestion, but they specialize in Eminence Speakers -- of which they offer nearly every model.

WhiteBox went online in September 2010, with three products in the Modern Series at launch, and several other configurations and styles in development. The Modern Series cabinets are made from 13-ply 18mm Baltic Birch and feature convertable rear panels for open, semi-open, or closed-back performance. The Modern Series currently offers 1x12, 2x12, and 4x12 cabinets, all available either loaded or unloaded.

The rest of the body is completely hollow. The guitar is available with a 25.5" or 27" scale length, standard (1 11/16" at the nut) or fingerstyle (1 13/16" at the nut) spacing, and with six or seven strings.

LA Amp Show '10-Lapdancer Guitars Solidbody Models

November 10, 2010
PG's Joe Coffey is On Location at the 2010 LA Amp Show where he visits the Lapdancer Guitars room. In this segment, we get to hear from Loni Spector, creator and the main-man behind the Amp Shows, talk about his line of custom, one-off solidbody electric guitars made under the Lapdancer brand name that started out over 10 years ago as a lap steel guitar company.

Lapdancers electrics are unique takes and spins on classics like T- and S-style guitars, including the Holecaster that is a T-style guitar with dozens of holes in it to reduce the guitar's original hefty body weight, two T-style guitars loaded with TV Jones Filter'Tron pickups, and a S-style guitar that commemorates the Amp Shows that Spector has been running for years.
