Sandberg Introduces the Electra M4 Bass, California DC, and Electra DC Models
Electra M4

The Electra M4 is designed for modern rock players and sport a single humbucker.

Germany (May 8, 2014) -- The latest offspring of our budget series is called the Electra M4. Unlike its family members "Vs" and "TT" it comes with a humbucker, which was especially designed for modern rock sounds. Neck and body of the M4, as with all Electra models, are produced from selected manufacturers in Korea and then assembled here in our workshop in Braunschweig/Germany. Similar to all our Electra models, they go through the same strict quality control as our regular in-house-made instruments. The Electra M4 is available in Redburst Highgloss only. It is now available from all official Sandberg dealers.

California DC

For years you've asked .... now it has become reality! The California DC is a classic sounding rocker with modern features. Equipped with 22 frets and rosewood, maple or ebony fretboard, Kluson locking tuners and our new Vintage Power Singlecoils that can also be connected in series by using a push / push pot. The California DC leaves nothing to chance. You can choose from our wide range of matte and aged color finishes.

Electra DC

We are so proud of our new California DC that we decided to bring out a similar Electra DC model at the same time. This guitar is exactly the same specs, only the neck and body are produced for us by selected manufacturers in Korea. The assembly, as well as the final quality control is done in our workshop in Braunschweig/Germany. Those who buy the Electra DC, get a high quality instrument for the smaller budget. You can choose from models in Black and Butterscotch, each with alder or swamp ash body and maple or rosewood fingerboard.

Presets extend the flexibility of an already expansive and easy-to-use reverb.

Intuitive. Great range in all controls. Well-built.

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.
