New Products for June 2007
|Zion The Ninety Guitar
The Ninety, by Zion Guitar Technology, is a semi-hollow design featuring modern innovations. It uses a new, angled peghead neck design that adjusts under a real mother of pearl cover. Sperzel locking tuners and a Graphtech nut combine for the ultimate in tuning stability. The Ninety features a figured maple top laminated to your choice of back and a traditional “F” hole cut like its orchestral cousins.
|Dragonfly Stethoscope Practice Amp
A unique, new “portable travel amp,” the Dragonfly provides players with a lightweight, self-sufficient, natural amplification device that attaches to the back of almost any electric guitar or bass. The Dragonfly uses a headset to provide players with private listening, so as not to disturb others, and never requires batteries, power supplies or electric cables to operate.
|Straub Amplifiers Twisted Triode Amp
By utilizing the power of 2A3 power triodes, the Twisted Triode delivers deeper, thicker and richer tones than those of your typical lower wattage EL84 or single-ended amps. At the same time it has more raucous sounds than those of your typical 6V6, 6L6 or EL34 amps, all in a 12-watt package. This amp provides a full-range master volume control allowing for low volume playing, but also offers a built in all-tube boost circuit. The Twisted Triode has an engraved backlit acrylic faceplate and is enclosed in a solid dovetailed Sapele cabinet.
|Lava Cable Retro-Coil Instrument Cable

This cable is completely made in the USA and includes cable, plugs and assembly. Unique among coiled cables, all plug options are available: silent plug to straight or right angle, straight to straight, right angle to straight, and right angle to right angle. The Retro-Coil comes with a lifetime warranty.

|Peavey VB-2 Tube Bass Amp
The VB-2 is built around a tube power section that utilizes six EL34 tubes to deliver 225 watts of power. By adjusting the Clean Gain and Overdrive Gain controls on the footswitchable Clean and Crunch channels, players can dial in a variety of tones, all while delivering the necessary “cut” to maintain a strong bass presence in live performances. Peavey’s patented Resonance and Presence controls, which adjust the damping factor at the low and high ends, along with a three-way speaker impedance selector, enable players to match the VB-2 to virtually any bass speaker enclosure.
|Asher Electro-Hawaiian Junior Lap Steel
The new Asher Electro-Hawaiian Junior offers wider string spacing for smoother playability and a longer scale length suitable for guitar and dobro players.

Both neck and body are crafted from solid mahogany and available in a tobacco-burst, antiquewhite or cherry red finish. Includes gig bag.
|Tesla AH-1 Active Humbuckers
