GoGo Tuners Releases Horizon Pedal Tuner

The new tuner features a larger screen than previous models, and the first horizontal screen offered by GoGo Tuners.

San Marcos, California (January 13, 2016) -- GoGo Tuners debuts their latest product, the GoGo Horizon Pedal Tuner. The new tuner features a larger screen than previous models, and the first horizontal screen offered by GoGo Tuners. The compact pedal also keeps popular features intact for which GoGo Tuners are known, such as pitch calibration and tight tuning accuracy, as well as durability and ease of use. The Horizon Pedal Tuner will be available starting in February through dealers and distributors worldwide.

The new Horizon tuning pedal has a calibration function with wide reference pitches from 430Hz to 450Hz, allowing for tighter tuning accuracy. It uses chromatic tuning with +/- .5-cent accuracy and a wide detection range of A0 (27.5Hz) - C8 (4186.00Hz). The pedal is equipped with true bypass and can also provide daisy chain power for other pedals. The new Horizon tuning pedal captures the ‘bigger is better’ philosophy with a new, larger high-definition big screen easily visible in all lighting situations, perfect for any stage or studio. With GoGo’s signature “green you’re in, red you’re out”, tuning becomes easy by eliminating any of the guesswork when tuning, which appeals to players of all levels. The entire display changes green when you are in tune, and red when you are out of tune. The pedal tuner features a metal chassis for improved durability and a longer lifetime of performance.

Price: $99

A bone nut being back-filed for proper string placement and correct action height.

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.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
