Furman announces a rackmounted global voltage regulator and a floor version of their P-1800 power conditioner.

Petaluma, CA (January 9, 2010) -- Furman, known for their power conditioning products, has announced to additions to their lineup for 2010.

P-3600 AR G Global Voltage Regulator

The Prestige Series P-3600 AR G is a 3RU power conditioner/True RMS voltage regulator that offers a one-of-a-kind power management solution for A/V professionals around the globe. The P-3600 AR G ensures stable 120V power delivery from any input voltage source between 100V to 127V or 208V to 240V. The unit provides connected 120V equipment with stable voltage, power protection, and AC line filtration, ideal for use with 120V A/V gear when traveling to countries with 100V, 220V, 230V, or 240V services.

The P-3600 AR G’s predecessor, the Furman AR-PRO, has been an indispensable product for many professional users. The updated model features Furman’s True RMS Regulation Technology (utilizing an ultra-low-noise torroidal isolation transformer/autoformer, high-current switching TRIACs, and micro-processing control) to step-down or step-up input voltages. The unit also offers Furman’s exclusive LiFT/SMP/EVS technologies for professional-level protection and linear AC noise filtration.

These features, along with the P-3600 AR G’s 30A output capacity and wide input voltage capture range, make it a unique solution among other portable power conditioner/voltage regulators and a reliable, application-specific alternative to typical step-up/step-down transformers.

The P-3600 AR G will be available 2010.

P-1800 PF Power Conditioner
An update to Furman’s Power Factor Pro, the P-1800 PF is a floor version of the popular rackmount P-1800 PF R. Ideal for instrument amplifiers and guitar/bass heads, the P-1800 PF provides comprehensive protection with Furman’s exclusive Power Factor and Clear Tone Technologies for uncompromised performance from high-current gear. The P-1800 PF’s new design features a sleek black finish and high-current outlets for instantaneous, low-impedance current delivery. Its compact, rugged steel construction is ideal for stage or studio use.

Furman's Power Factor Technology reduces AC line impedance by providing a 45A peak current reservoir. This gives instrument amplifiers and powered speakers the headroom to operate at maximum efficiency and sound consistent from venue to venue without being subjected to current compression caused by line impedance or resistance. Clear Tone Technology adds an additional level of linear filtration for a lower noise floor, allowing the instrument's tone and character to be expressed without the masking effects of AC line noise.

The P-1800 PF features isolated outlet banks to minimize intercomponent interference, and offers Furman’s exclusive SMP/LiFT/EVS technologies for professional-level protection and linear AC noise filtration. The unit’s LED voltmeter displays the incoming line voltage, while Protection OK and Extreme Voltage indicators provide information on power quality and the operational status of the unit.

The P-1800 PF is available now at an MSRP of $479.

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one. I showed up late to the archtop party, and it took a while to realize our pairing was atypical. I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
