PG's Shawn Hammond is On Location at the 2010 NY Amp Show where he visits the Two Notes Audio Engineering room and checks out their Torpedo VB-101. In studio, on stage or at home, the VB-101 is a solution for quick, easy and silent miking of your bass and guitar amplifiers. Just plug your amplifier to the VB-101 instead of a speaker cabinet, directly at the power output. The Torpedo VB-101 replaces the usual mic'ing process by a powerful simulation of the speaker cabinet, the microphone, the microphone preamplifier, and the studio acoustic environment. The mic'ing process then takes place silently, with perfect control over the most important parameters: choice of speaker cabinet among many models, choice of microphone, and placement of the microphone around the cabinet.

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.
