NAMM '11 - Hayden Amplifiers MOFO 100

PG's Andy Ellis is On Location at the 2011 NAMM Show where he visits the Hayden Amplifiers booth. In this segment, we get introduced to their newest guitar amplifier--the MoFo 100. The MoFo is an amplifier that looks every bit as sensational as it sounds - a tradition continued by NAMM debutants the MoFo 100 head, and the MoFo 55 head and 1x12 combo. Beside obvious hikes in power, the new MoFos get 2 channels for even more tonal flexibility, while the 100 head also benefits from the addition of reverb fitted ahead of the FX output.

The session ace’s signature model offers a wide range of tones at the flip of a switch … or five.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. Not long ago, I came home late from a band rehearsal, still overly excited about the new songs we played. I got myself a coffee (I know, it's a crazy procedure to calm down) and turned on the TV. I ended up with an old Bonanza episode from the ’60s, the mother of all Western TV series. Hearing the theme after a long time instantly reminded me of the great Al Caiola, who is the prolific session guitarist who plays on the song. With him in mind, I looked up the ’60s Epiphone “Al Caiola” model and decided I want to talk about the Epiphone/Gibson Tone Expressor system that was used in this guitar.

Embracing the idea of an acoustic flattop made with anything other than wood can, understandably, be tricky stuff. There’s a lot of precedent for excellent-sounding acoustics built with alternative materials, though. Carbon-fiber flattops can sound amazing and I’ve been hooked by the sound and playability of Ovation and Adamas instruments many times.
