Nashville, TN (July 21, 2011) -- Lâg Guitars (Summer NAMM booth 800) has expanded their Tramontane line to include three new ukulele series. Each instrument is adorned with a “tiki man” rosette design, and all models come with a matching, padded gigbag.



Baby U700S

Lâg ukuleles are available in the 77 Series, the 100 Series, and the 700 Series. Consistent features include die-cast machine heads with satin black oval buttons, an arched back design, and a solid rosewood fretboard with nickel frets.

Lâg 77 Series instruments are constructed using a mahogany top, back, and sides, accented by black and ivory bindings, and are outfitted in a French satin finish. Both a soprano (U77S) and a concert model (U77C) are offered in this line.

Featuring a modern, high-gloss black finish, the Lâg 100 Series ukuleles upgrade to a solid mahogany top with mahogany binding for a stylish contrast. The 100 Series includes a slim-bodied baby soprano (Baby-U100S-BLK) and a standard concert (U100C-BLK) model. The Lâg 700 Series ukuleles are crafted with solid koa back and sides, plus a solid koa top. The elegant French satin finish is highlighted by rosewood and maple binding. The premium 700 Series includes two models—a slim-bodied baby soprano (Baby-U700S) and a standard concert model (U700C).

There’s a wide variety of pedal-format devices available to improve your acoustic guitar’s amplified tone, including Fishman’s Aura, Line 6’s HX Stomp, and LR Baggs’ Voiceprint DI.

From DIs to multi-effects processors to IRs, there are plenty of ways to make your sound golden.

Whether you’re a professional player, weekend warrior, or a once-in-a-blue-moon open miker, you will likely be put in a position to play both electric and acoustic instruments on a gig. As you’re looking to build your switch-hitting pedalboard, you may find that electric and acoustic guitar processing haven’t exactly been treated equitably in the marketplace. Even a bog-standard electric guitar rig these days is populated with three overdrives du jour and a gaggle of space-age DSP-driven effects culled from a market saturated with bobs and bits intended to fatten your sound and thin your wallet. When compared to the smorgasbord of electric guitar processing products, the selection of acoustic-guitar-specific offerings may seem a bit spartan.
