A transparent tremolo with several different wave form options.

Medellín, Colombia (November 3, 2017) -- With quality construction in every aspect, Lovell Musiclab’s Shakey tremolo offers stunning clarity combined with super-durable construction and innovative features. This tremolo is handmade in Medellin, Colombia, with high quality components and great attention to detail. Combine that with it’s super tough powder-coat finish and specially made steel enclosure, and Shakey will stand the test of time.

“We wanted to build a tremolo that doesn’t color the instrument’s tone and has a constant perceived volume no matter how deep the tremolo is set” says designer Tim Lovell.

Getting a little technical, Shakey uses a custom MOSFET VCA that remains faithful to your guitar’s dynamics all through it’s volume modulation, and it’s innovative “Constant RMS” depth control maintains the perceived volume no matter how deep or fast the volume modulation goes - no volume drop!

Features:

  • Triangle to square wave blend knob
  • “Symmetry” control - positive and negative sawtooth waveform
  • “Speed” and “Depth” controls
  • Inhouse designed transparent MOSFET VCA
  • True-bypass switching- Chassis mount “Switchcraft” jacks
  • Custom heavy-duty powder-coated steel enclosure
  • Standard 9VV DC jack plus internal battery connector

With it’s highly flexible wave shape and symmetry controls, Shakey is at home in any genre from Blues to Modern Rock. Already proving to be a favorite with musicians and in studios, it´s destined to become a classic.

Shakey is retailing at $115, available at www.lovellmusiclab.com and selected retailers.

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one. I showed up late to the archtop party, and it took a while to realize our pairing was atypical. I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
