The TOD10N is Tim’s newest signature instrument and a vast departure from his original AZ-based guitar.
Set for release in 2023, Ibanez has officially announced its latest collaboration with modern guitar Phenom, Tim Henson. The TOD10N is Tim’s newest signature instrument and a vast departure from his original AZ-based guitar. This specialized acoustic/electric immediately drew interest and attention when it appeared on Tim’s social media channels and Polyphia’s music video for their song, Playing God.
Tim’s inspiration for this guitar came from a previous Ibanez design called the SC500N. This older model was unique in that it was a solid body electric, but it utilized nylon strings paired with a Piezo pickup system. While the TOD10N certainly drew inspiration from that model, the specifications are quite different and it’s very much its own creation.
The body shape is based on the FR series but is hollow in its construction. The design also incorporates a discrete sound hole located on the upper bout, directed towards the player. This preserves the clean, modern appearance of the guitar, while also providing clear and accurate acoustic tone. Fan Bracing is another critical element of the TOD10N. A bracing style generally found on classical guitars, it was incorporated to help facilitate and enhance the “Nuevo Flamenco” style Tim and Polyphia have been exploring as of late. Other notable features include a solid Sitka Spruce top, Walnut fretboard, Fishman® Sonicore pickup, and the “Tree of Death” inlay, designed by Tim. The TOD10N will be hitting stores sometime in Q1 of 2023.

The VegaTrem VT2 Teletrem was designed to grant the T-style guitar a new sound.
The VegaTrem VT2 Teletrem is a tremolo designed to grant the T-style guitar a new sound, without the need of modifying a single millimeter of Fenders original design. This new tremolo/vibrato with its very own VegaTrem tuning stability, expands the future musical possibilities of this legendary guitar.
The T-Style electric guitars were not originally designed to receive a tremolo/vibrato. But VegaTrem's solution combined with the use of quality materials such as marine grade stainless steel and brass saddles (like the classic design), enhances the tonal qualities of your TL-type guitar, regardless using the vibrato or not. Without a doubt, the possibilities of "pulling up" to up to half a tone, or "dive bombing", as well as the expression, the new sound and musical life a vibrato can give to these legendary guitars.
The Teletrem is available on 2 versions:
VT2 Teletrem classic:
For T-style guitars that use classic dimensions bridge (71mm between the string holes to the top screw of the bridge pickup).
VT2 Teletrem modern:
For T-style guitars that use modern dimensions bridge (69mm between the string holes to the top screw of the bridge pickup).

LEHLE launches two new products, the LEHLE P-ISO TRS XLR and LEHLE P-ISO XLR TRS. XLR sockets found their way in and that’s why these products were designed into many environments – without the annoying search for the matching adapter cable.
By means of the LEHLE TRANSFORMER HZ, the focus is on isolating two devices, so that existing ground loops can be effectively suppressed and background noise eliminated. Additionally, there are applications for (un-)balancing signals in live situations or recording environments, e.g. as a reamplification box.
- Isolator, Reamplification box and problem solver
- Absolutely no signal loss or hum
- High-impedance LEHLE TRANSFORMER HZ
- Suitable for balanced or unbalanced signals
- Passive – no need for a power supply
And just in case you are looking for a power connection: even these tools of the LEHLE P-ISO series perform all their functions without any need for a power supply. And due to their optimized size and low weight, they fit easily below your pedalboard or in any pocket.

Designed for the gigging guitarist, the Amulet offers 15 watts, 5 watts or 1 watt of all-tube tone through a UK-made Celestion Creamback 10” speaker.
The Supro Amulet is a vintage-voiced 1x10 combo loaded with all-tube reverb and tremolo along with a new, three-way switchable power attenuator. Designed for the gigging guitarist, the Amulet offers 15 watts, 5 watts, or 1 watt of all-tube tone through a UK-made Celestion Creamback 10” speaker.
Another legendary offering from Celestion, the G10 Creamback speaker offers vintage, woody tone while still providing major power. Its rich low-end complements the Amulet’s singing voice, while crunchy upper-mids and sweet highs aid in undeniably articulate tone.
The preamp found in the Amulet delivers warm, blooming clean sounds up to ‘noon’ on its volume knob. Past noon, its voice rolls into classic Supro crunch, giving way to a singing, violin-like overdrive at full volume. The Amulet is remarkably high-gain for a vintage-inspired amp but offers a sweet spot that is not overwhelmingly loud.
Amulet Demo with Sara L'Abriola | Supro
The power amp found in the Amulet uses a single 6L6 tube with switchable power soak to achieve bedroom level 1-watt, studio-friendly 5-watt or a more robust 15-watt output for stage use. The overdrive in the Amulet’s “single-ended,” Class-A output stage is rich in even-order harmonics and soaked in natural tube compression. True to the legacy of original Supro combos, the Amulet’s exceptional dynamics, ultra-low noise performance, and three-way power attenuator make it an ideal amplifier for club gigs, studio recording, and bedroom practice.
Available for pre-order at select dealers worldwide. MSRP $1199.

The limited-edition Exploding Head Triple Delay celebrates the 13th anniversary of the album Exploding Head by A Place to Bury Strangers.
“This pedal improves on the sound I used around the time I was writing and recording Exploding Head,” says Death By Audio founder Oliver Ackermann. Ackermann is also the vocalist/guitarist/producer of A Place to Bury Strangers.
The Exploding Head remakes itself in the image of the elusive (and unobtainable) Ghost Delay pedal with an improved knob-per-feature layout and the brand-new Infinity Switch. Step on the Infinity Switch for dynamic swells, bursts of noise, or to build massive walls of sound. With a regular TS instrument cable, the Exploding Head’s three delays all output in mono. However, using a TRS cable splits the output into stereo. The first two delays (Black and Grey) are tapped to the Ring connection and the third delay (Red) is wired to the Tip connection.
Limited to 500 units worldwide, the EXPLODING HEAD BUNDLE contains:
- 2xLP Transparent Double Vinyl edition of Exploding Head Limited Edition Reissue by A Place to Bury Strangers
- Exclusive Death By Audio EXPLODING HEAD Triple Delay Pedal
- “Ego Death” Enamel Pin
- “Deadbeat” Iron-on Patch
- “Exploding Head’ Guitar Pick
- 18”x24” foldout lyric poster w/artwork
