The cabinets feature new a front grille cloth with better airflow to improve sound quality and reduce vibrations.

Stockholm, Sweden (January 15, 2015) -- EBS Professional Bass Equipment presents a facelift on the ClassicLine vintage-style bass cabinets at the NAMM Show 2015.

The new features include:

  • New front grille cloth with better airflow to improve sound quality and reduce vibrations.
  • New hardware including; heavy-duty, removable casters with the 410 and 212 models, heavy-duty protective steel corners and heavy-duty wheels on the 810 model.
  • Recessed ëlock-in-placeí steel cups matching the footprint of the EBS CL500 amp on the 410, 212 and 810 models.
  • New corners and îlock-in-placeî cups matching footprint of the EBS CL500 amp on the 212, 410 and 810 models.

After experience great success with the flat designed PCF patch cables, introduced at the NAMM Show 2014, EBS now expand the line of pedal board accessories with yet another great design, the universal 2nd ROW pedal board riser.

The 2nd ROW can be used to place the second row of pedals on your pedalboard up a level and in a comfortable angle to make it easier to access and to reduce the risk of stepping on the wrong switch when engaging your effects.

It can also be mounted below the entire pedal board (require 2 pcs of 2nd ROW units), to angle the whole pedal board.

The clever design allows you to hide loose cable inside the 2nd ROW to keep a neat and clean look of your pedal board.

2nd ROW can be attached to any pedal board using 3M DualLock or Velcro.

From now on, the EBS CarryOn pedal board with bag will include 2 pcs of the 2ND ROW, replacing the previously included angled rubber pads.

Estimated price on the 2ND ROW riser is $20 each.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
