Bigrock Engineering Introduces Power Pins

Bigrock Engineering is now in production with their new POWER PINS replacement Bridge Pin system for Acoustic Guitars.

Marina Del Ray, CA (May 23, 2013) -- Bigrock Engineering is now in production with their new POWER PINS replacement Bridge Pin system for Acoustic Guitars. POWER PINS with patent pending SLIDE INSM stringing system make stringing and tuning fast and easy, while protecting the bridge assembly from string and ball end contact damage.

POWER PINS mechanically compress the Bridge components together, strengthening the coupling and increasing volume, resonance and sustain to improve overall tone. POWER PINS provide a shallower break angle over the saddle that lightens the action without sacrificing volume.

Installs in minutes without modifications.

  • Improved Tone and Volume
  • No Modifications to Instrument
  • Quick Stringing and Tuning
  • Protects Bridge Plate

MSRP: $59.95

It’s ok for a guitar to not sound like a guitar.

As much as we all love juicy, organic guitar tones, it can be just as inspiring to go the opposite way. Combining various modulation effects, envelope filters, oscillators, and more can result in sounds that owe more to Kraftwerk than Led Zeppelin.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
