Los Angeles, CA (December 6, 2012) – Floyd Rose continues its legacy of innovation with the brand new surface-mounting FRX Tremolo System for Les Paul, SG, and Flying V-style guitars. The FRX is a direct swap for the Tune-O-Matic and stopbar type bridge system, using the existing mounting stud holes and requiring no routing whatsoever. The locking nut is a truss rod cover/nut hybrid which simply swaps with the original nut and cover.

Finally a solution with the functionality and reliability that is synonymous with authentic Floyd Rose tremolo systems. Available in these finishes - chrome, black, gold, nickel, black nickel, antique silver, antique bronze, satin chrome, satin black, and satin gold.

Floyd Rose has also announced that the Floyd Rose 8-string tremolo is now available for purchase. Featuring the same classic features of the Original and constructed with hardened steel, you can now explore unknown sonic territories with ease. The FR-8 was first used by Schecter for their acclaimed Hellraiser C-8 FR, and it is now time for all 8-string players to have the opportunity to own one. The kit includes the FR-8 tremolo bridge, locking nut, springs and claw, pivot screws, and all necessary hardware for installation. Available in chrome, black, gold, and black nickel.

Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time. But since I seem to exist on a separate timeline than most folks, it was all news to me.
