Balaguer Guitars Releases the Gaia

The company unveils their new take on a modified reverse version of their Hyperion model.

Pottstown, PA (October 2, 2018) -- The latest model from Balaguer Guitars, The Gaia, which is their new take on a modified reverse version of their Hyperion model. Much like their other models, it fuses vintage aesthetics with modern ergonomic design. The deep treble horn cutaway and more extreme offset body gives this model a streamlined and modern feel. The Gaia comes stock with a 25.5” scale length, 16” fingerboard radius, stainless steel frets, and custom-voiced mini-humbuckers called Atombuckers.

How to Reamp Your Guitar | Recording Dojo

This well-established, simple technique opens up a new world of sonic possibilities.

[Originally published February 14, 2022]
Welcome to another Dojo! This time I’m going to show you how to reamp your guitar and explore some creative ways you can re-amps other tracks as well (soft synths, vocals, drums, etc.). In my earlier column “Why Guitarists Shouldn’t Diss DIs,” I mentioned the benefits of using a DI for creative recording. If you have a DI box, dust it off! You’ll need it when I show you how to get more out of your DI-recorded guitar and bass tracks by reamping them into your pedals and amps to capture new perspectives and even add some new reverberant spaces. Tighten up your belts, the Dojo is now open.
