Taurus Amps Launches the Qube-350 Acoustic

An amp designed for both acoustic and electric basses that features a subsonic filter.


A microphone or piezo pickup can be use to amplify the instrument. Each source can be connected to independent channel and at the same time both of them can be mixed. Two different instruments can also be connected to the amp's channels at the same time and used simultaneously. Each channel is designed with a separate tone correction and GAIN control, which gives flexibility in setting of expected tone of the instrument. The tone correction is transparent/neutral, without any "underlines" so that exact sound of the instrument can be reproduced.

Students at the O’Brien Guitars school bind their instruments following a more traditional European style of guitar making.

Finding the right school can be tough for any aspiring luthier. Here are some options to consider.

In my previous column, “So, You Want to Be a Luthier?”, I talked about the types of people attracted to lutherie training programs, some of the possibilities and options these individuals have at their disposal, and discussed both long-term and short-term training, either of which have their place for primary or supplemental training. But the question remains, what school should you choose for your lutherie training? And what might a school have to offer that would best suit your educational needs?
