Testing effects

The final day of Summer NAMM was full of beautifully ornate guitars, fire-breathing heads, and a few fresh stomps.


Takamine Guitars introduced a pair of killer new dreads to NAMM attendees with the EF340S TT and EF360S TT. Handcrafted in Japan, both feature solid spruce soundboards treated with "thermal top" technology that helps provide the sound of a well broken-in classic. The 340S has solid mahogany back and sides while the 360S utilizes rosewood. Equipped with a TLD-2 preamp fed by a Palathetic pickup, both are ready to roll for stage or studio.

The Trigger Fly Capo builds on the original Trigger Capo—Dunlop’s most popular capo design—designed for better handling and tuning stability.
