Buffalo FX Releases the Patriot MkII

The second iteration is based on the extremely rare Civil War Muff and designed to replicate the sought after Gilmour Pulse tone.

Monléon-Magnoac, France (February 4, 2019) -- An update to the original Patriot, considered to be one of the best muff circuits in production. Originally based on the extremely rare Civil War Muff and designed to replicate the sought after Gilmour Pulse tone the Patriot Mkll takes it that little bit further.

A newly designed koa wonder that packs a punch.

Incredibly easy to play. Well-balanced tone.

Not as visually stunning as other koa models.


Taylor 724ce

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.
