Morley Releases Signature DJ Ashba Skeleton Wah

Morley Releases Signature DJ Ashba Skeleton Wah

A switchless wah that is tuned to DJ's specs.

Glendale Heights, IL (January 11, 2017) -- Morley, makers of pedals, switches and Ebtech audio solutions, released the DJ Ashba Skeleton Wah. This new signature wah is switchless; simply step on to engage wah and step off to go to bypass. It is also electro-optical meaning there are no pots to wear out and get scratchy. The Skeleton Wah is tuned in to DJ’s preferred tone and sweep and is equipped with our new custom MQ2 inductor for more intense Wah, smooth range and less noise. It has an internal wah level trimpot for those who want to tweek the Wah’s output level.

“One of the coolest features about the pedal is the entire pedal glows in the dark.” adds Morley’s Bill Wenzloff, “It’s Morley’s Patent Pending Glow In The Dark Coating Technology. The Bone white paint job is beautiful and once it receives a charge of light will glow on a dark stage. The pedal graphics were designed by DJ himself and adds a great touch of style to the pedal.”

The Skeleton Wah is suitable for use with guitar, bass, keys or any other instrument you can plug into it. It is housed in a cold rolled steel chassis, equipped with LED indication, our Quick Clip battery door and has a street price of $145.00. Also available in M2 European version (Model SKW2). As with all Morley’s, it comes with a no-hassle two year warranty.

John Bohlinger puts an AI tool to the test—and finds a dog that says meow.

The AI driven paradigm shift is upon us, and it’s happening much quicker than we anticipated. You’ve undoubtedly seen AI make amazing stuff, but I was shocked when I checked out AI songwriting site suno.com. When prompted, I typed: “An acoustic-rock-style song. Dog is a compassionate counselor to humans but secretly a serial killer.”

Frank’s Guyatone LG-60 features an old Bigsby and alternate headstock shape, along with single-coil pickups that look sort of like humbuckers.

In the midst of his explorations of Japanese guitar culture, our columnist stumbled upon a vintage collector who also happens to be part of the Pokémon design team.

So, how many of you know about Pokémon, the popular video-game and card series? I missed out on the initial Pokémon craze of the ’90s, and its continuation while I later was toiling my way through college, but when my son was in kindergarten around 2016, we started to play Pokémon Go—another game in the Pokémon series—on my smartphone.

The veteran fingerstylist and songwriter—who’s had his songs covered by Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, and others—ponders the existential while celebrating the earthly. He also talks about the trajectory of his six-decades-long career, and how he learned to stop doing what’s unnecessary.

Now well into his sixth decade as a performer, with more than 20 albums behind him, singer-songwriter Chris Smither is doing some of his finest work. His vivid lyrics and resonant baritone on his new recording, All About the Bones, are elevated by his inimitable guitar style.
