Melville, NY (May 11, 2012) – Lâg has expanded their ukulele lineup to include models that suit most budget levels, all of which are in stores for the summer season. Featuring high-quality tone, these spirited instruments are eye-catching, affordable, and fun for everyone to play. Each one is adorned with a "tiki man" rosette design, and all models come with a matching padded gig bag.

Ukuleles in Lâg's economical 44 Series feature a mahogany top, back, and sides; and are outfitted in a French satin finish. Nickel machine heads are fitted with traditional ivory-colored oval buttons. Both a soprano (U44S) and a concert model (U44C) are offered.

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. Consistent features across both series include an arched back design and a solid rosewood fingerboard with nickel frets. Lâg ukuleles are available online and in stores with U.S. street prices ranging from $89.99 to $149.99

Flexible filtering options and a vicious fuzz distinguish the Tool bass master’s signature fuzz-wah.

Great quality filters that sound good independently or combined. Retains low end through the filter spectrum. Ability to control wah and switch on fuzz simultaneously. Very solid construction.

Fairly heavy. A bit expensive.

$299

Options for self-expression through pedals are almost endless these days. It’s almost hard to imagine a sonic void that can’t be filled by a single pedal or some combination of them. But when I told bass-playing colleagues about the new Dunlop Justin Chancellor Cry Baby—which combines wah and fuzz tuned specifically for bass—the reaction was universal curiosity and marvel. It seems Dunlop is scratching an itch bass players have been feeling for quite some time.

Nobody ever says, "I really enjoyed their use of inverted suspended triads," or "their application of large-interval pentatonic sequences was fascinating." So, whether you're playing live or recording, time is everyone's responsibility, and you must develop your ability to play in the pocket.
