Tregan Guitars Now Shipping the New SyrenXT Guitar

Tregan updates their Syren series with the SyrenXT

Chambersburg, PA (March 17, 2009) --The SyrenXT is the second generation Syren by Tregan Guitars. By combining the best of the signature and standard series Syrens, with suggestions from professional players and customers, the XT is truly an instrument for the player.

The new bold look of the XT features a two tone paint job, Floyd Rose licensed tremolo, Grover tuners, black hardware and a more comfortable tapered back. A Passive/Active switch, along with the built in powered Preamp, offers great flexibility when playing. In passive mode the alnico humbuckers give you smooth tones for strumming to your favorite songs. The active mode adds more bite and enhances tone and harmonics, turning the XT into a shredding machine.

Like the rest of the Syren series, the XT is a guitar to behold, and to be held. It has Tregan’s super fast neck with twenty-four frets, Syren Wing inlays and deep cutouts for easy access to all twenty-four frets. The smaller headstock and the unique body shape were designed to give the guitar a comfortable feel and perfect balance.

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.
