The Danish crew delivers tactile control to the guitar without changing it’s aesthetics or construction.

Aarhus, Denmark (June 7, 2019) -- Offering freedom to move away from the pedalboard, Noatronic Onboard Expression delivers tactile control to the guitar without changing it’s aesthetics or construction.

The system consists of a Controller and a Receiver. The Controller is a potentiometer with a center detent and push-push switch replacing a tone potentiometer in the guitar.

The guitar is connected with a stereo (TRS) cable to the Receiver, which reads the Controller position and push-push switch status. The Receiver is true bypass and it communicates with pedals, amps and amp modelers using these outputs:

  • MIDI out - Expression CC, Bypass CC, Preset PC and Snapshot/Scene CC
  • Expression out - Simulates an expression pedal when turning the Controller
  • Switch out - Simulates a footswitch when pressing the Controller

Noatronic Onboard Expression is designed and made in Denmark. Available worldwide at Noatronic.com for $249 / €249

Hawaiian koa has been a favorite of boutique acoustic builders for ages. It has a cool tone personality, somewhere between rosewood and mahogany. It can be used for both back and sides and for top wood, and it’s beautiful. It’s also pretty expensive. The good news is that Taylor’s new 724ce is built with a breed of Koa that actually helps players save a few bucks.

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
