Wall-Axe Guitar Hangers Announces the Soloist

The Soloist uses its triangular shape to securely hold a guitar plus the most common accessories.

Des Moines, IA (August 5, 2014) -- Wall-Axe Custom Guitar Hangers announces their latest innovation in guitar accessories, the Soloist: All-In-One Guitar & Accessory Hanger, a single-hanger solution inspired by their flagship decorative multi-guitar hangers.

The Soloist uses its well-configured triangular shape to securely hold one guitar, plus the guitarist’s most common accessories, including: shoulder guitar straps, clip-on tuners, capos, picks, thumb picks, finger slides, and instrument cable. All Soloists are made in the USA from beautiful solid oak and fitted with premium hangers. Never before has a single guitar wall hanger incorporated so much added function for the user. The Soloist is truly inspired by the family-owned Wall-Axe company slogan: “The Beauty of Art & Function”.

A few of the most notable features on the Soloist are the four accessory knobs that border the hanger’s base. By personal preference, the user can securely fasten up to three guitar straps on a single knob, and up to 15 guitar picks can be organized by thickness in the three allotted slots for easy accessibility. “We are in the business of solving problems for guitarists...” said Wall-Axe designer, Vance Lambert. "And we resolved the issue of losing our favorite guitar picks and trying to remembering which guitar case we last placed our capos & tuners in!”

The Soloist is a derivative of the company’s flagship product, Wall-Axe Custom Guitar Hangers. These are decorative multi-guitar hangers that come in 40+ body shape & color combinations. The popular LX-Series hosts a variety of stylish laminated wood grains and color variations, while the CS-Series are made from solid Red Oak for those desiring a more rich & natural vibe in their music room. All of these products are available online, directly from the manufacturer.

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.
