Jessup, MD (July 24, 2017) -- API is pleased to announce its groundbreaking TranZformer Series, designed to easily and affordably bring the legendary analog sound of API to your guitar and bass.

The TranZformer Series includes the GT Guitar Pedal and LX Bass Pedal, both of which incorporate API's traditional analog signal path to provide gain control, compression and equalization in one box. Both units feature phase invert switches on each output, ground lift, clip indicator, transformer output, a hard wire bypass switch, universal +18VDC power supply, and an LED indicator that monitors input and output stage clipping, offering the user an unsurpassed level of sonic control.

The TranZformer GT and LX both combine an API 525 feedback-type compressor with a 3-band equalizer, optimized for guitar and bass respectively. Like all API products, the TranZformer Series is built to API's exacting standards and remains true to the design philosophy that has made API the leader in professional analog recording gear for nearly 50 years.

The TranZformer LX and GT each have an MSRP of $579. Units are now shipping and more information is available on our website.

Hawaiian koa has been a favorite of boutique acoustic builders for ages. It has a cool tone personality, somewhere between rosewood and mahogany. It can be used for both back and sides and for top wood, and it’s beautiful. It’s also pretty expensive. The good news is that Taylor’s new 724ce is built with a breed of Koa that actually helps players save a few bucks.

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
