Reunion Blues Unveils Midnight Series Guitar and Bass RB Continental Cases

The line features numerous design refinements incorporating user feedback gathered over the last two years.

Petaluma, CA (April 4, 2012) – Reunion Blues is expanding its RB Continental guitar and bass case line with a striking new all-black design. Dubbed the "Midnight Series", these new cases still utilize the same drop-tested construction that has made the line so dependable for travel, but also features numerous design refinements incorporating user feedback gathered over the last two years.

In keeping with the Reunion Blues “bullet-proof” reputation, a thick shock-absorbing Flexoskeleton exterior is featured, lined with reinforced impact panels that will withstand the roughest road trip. Plus, an exterior EVA-reinforced multi-pocket features musician-friendly storage for easy access to accessories without having to open the case. A large zippered accessory pocket is also provided, along with adjustable, hideaway padded back-pack straps, and a Reunion Blues Continental Zero-G palm-contoured handle.

Inside, the RB Continental Midnight contains a unique neck brace suspension system which includes a locking strap built on a dense foam block to prevent movement when the case is bumped, or dropped. The interior is crafted with plush, quilted blue velvet lining, a trademark of the entire Reunion Blues RB Continental case line.

Design refinements include a second zipper on the front pocket, creating opposing pulls for easier access while reducing wear. A new D-ring for attaching after-market straps has also been incorporated, allowing the owner to “wear” the case lower on the back for easier passage through doorways.

Some digital artifacts at long decay times.


Walrus Audio Slötvå


Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time. But since I seem to exist on a separate timeline than most folks, it was all news to me.
