Dingwall Basses Announces 2014 Line–Including Super PJ, Combustion, and Adam Getgood Signature Models
The NG-2 features Dingwall FD3n pickups and a custom Darkglass 3-band pre-amp.
Saskatoon, SK (January 22, 2014) -- The all new Afterburner HS (Heavy, Solid) model features a solid bubinga body with a variety of top choices and neck materials. Dingwall has always made lightness of weight a top priority but with the HS the goal is to satisfy the needs of the player looking for the extreme sustain and attack of a heavier bass. Available in 2x and 3x pickup configurations, passive, 2-band or 3-band electronics options.
The Combustion has been the best selling model in Dingwall history. New for 2014 is a 3-band EMG pre-amp, FD3n (neodymium) pickups, a magnetic battery compartment, a sleeker 240 mm radius Fretboard and the optional Swamp Ash body.
Adam “Nolly” Getgood has been making a name for himself in the low-tuned progressive metal scene both as the bass player for Periphery and as producer of Animals as Leaders. Dingwall basses have been a key part of Adam’s signature tone for the last two years.
We are proud to announce the NG-2 Adam “Nolly” Getgood signature model. Featuring an Alder body, 5 pc maple neck, maple fretboard, Dingwall FD3n pickups, a custom Darkglass 3-band pre-amp. Adam wanted the bass to be affordable, have a distinctive custom car look, and be able to deliver the tight, controlled bottom end that he uses live and in the studio. Available colors include Black, Ferrari Yellow, Ferrari Green, Ferrari Red and Laguna Seca Blue.
The NG-2 comes stock tuned to B standard but can be setup for F# standard using Dingwall custom gauge strings or just about any tuning imaginable using Circle K custom gauge strings.
The all new Super J series features the thinline body dimension for increased punch with lower weight. All controls are rear-routed now with the addition of available options such as individual series/parallel switching for each pickup and a 3-band Glockenklang pre-amp. Custom FD3 pickups are now standard and come in both 2x and the optional 3x array to cover a huge variety of traditional and modern tones.
As soon as we launched the Super P we started getting requests for a Super PJ. The PJ has always seemed like a bit of a compromise to us. Getting the J bridge to blend well with a P neck pickup is not as simple as it might seem. We spent a lot of time working on the bridge pickup and it's position. The results are that the pickups compliment each really nicely and the parallel combined tone is one of the best we’ve heard on any bass.

Featuring the Adaptive Circuitry recently introduced on their Halcyon Green Overdrive, Origin Effects have brought us a pedal with a character all of its own and a new flavor of drive.
Origin Effects introduce the new M-EQ DRIVER mid booster & drive pedal. Based on a vintage Pultec studio EQ, this unique pedal offers a range of mid-focused tones, from a subtle mid boost to thick, resonant overdrive. Featuring the Adaptive Circuitry recently introduced on their Halcyon Green Overdrive, Origin Effects have brought us a pedal with a character all of its own and a new flavor of drive.
A choice of three mid-range frequencies ensures that you can boost just the right part of your guitar signal and, when pushed harder, can elicit a range of saturation from a classic “mid-hump” overdrive to fierce “cocked wah” distortion. Thanks to the Adaptive Circuitry, the high-end roll-off of the Cut control is reduced as the pedal cleans up. This allows for a smooth transition from warm overdrive to bright clean tones in response to playing dynamics or guitar volume knob changes.
Introducing... M-EQ DRIVER || Mid Booster & Drive
Built-in the UK to the highest standards, the M-EQ DRIVER continues the Origin Effects tradition of vintage, studio-inspired tones in modern guitar pedals. The Origin Effects M-EQ DRIVER is available now from Origin Effects dealers worldwide.
RRP: 259 GBP (Inc VAT) / 319 USD (Ex TAX)

The new finish, according to Lava Music, is “inspired by the beauty of the golden hour,” a shining time just before sunset and after sunrise when photographers covet to capture stunning pictures.
With bright and warm golden hues, the new finish adds a brilliant metallic glow to the surface of Lava ME 3, complementing its AirSonic 2 carbon fiber unibody which features L3 Preamp with FreeBoost 2.0, delivers industry-leading sounds by breakthrough acoustic technologies, and houses a multi-touch display powered by Lava-developed HILAVA system.
Speaking of the HILAVA system, Lava Music also added four new effects: Nebula, Desert Rose, Cassette, and Edge of Breakup. As unique as their names sound, they are very much different from what we normally know about effects. Programmed into the HILAVA system, each of the four is powered by the company’s latest ArctanDrive algorithm and incorporates effects like Pitch Shift, Delay, and Reverb. And every one of those incorporated sub-effects comes with various parameters that players can adjust to design unique, overdriven sounds by just tapping on the multi-touch display. That said, those effects enable users to play with overdriven tone on an acoustic-electric guitar without even plugging in any external gear.
LAVA ME 3 | Now in Golden Hour | LAVA MUSIC
Lava Me 3 in Golden Hour is now available starting from $999 on LAVA MUSIC, Amazon, and local guitar dealerships near you.
