Actually, I think we will be seeing a lot of stuff coming out of this one. Already received our first of the new Supros, if anyone has questions.

i'd be interested in hearing impressions and the general buzz around the MPC X/Live if possible. also i think i heard rumblings about Roland (?) releasing a new pad-based sampler workstation this year as well, so any news about products in that category would be appreciated!

Yeah, first impressions on the new Supro (Westbury fyi) are hugely positive. It feels amazing, there's a satin treatment on the playing surface of the neck that's as smooth as anything I've ever had in the shop.

That Rubberneck looks pretty cool.

the supro westbury is gorgeous - how does it sound jjj? i might be in the market for a new guitar soon and i'm after something off the fender / gibson track so these have def caught my eye, although i suspect they might be pretty expensive over here in the uk

Oh man, the Alexander Pedals Sky Fi sounds amazing.

I love the sound of the Westbury - the semimicrophonic pickups are just huge and open, pleasingly flat across frequencies.

i like the vibrato-y sounds from that Space Spiral pedal, that would be useful w/synths.

The Catalinbread Belle Epoch Deluxe is going to be astounding, just waiting for a price now.

I would be way more excited about red panda stuff if they had a better track record of actually shipping 90% of their stuff ever.

they don't ship products they advertise or don't fill orders?

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 19 January 2017 22:39 (four years ago) link

Definitely check out the Boutique Guitar Showcase -- there are some fantastic builders I have met in Berlin at the Holy Grail Guitar Show over the last three years.

what's the hot new affordable analog synth this year?

the monologue?

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 19 January 2017 23:19 (four years ago) link

Yeah, definitely the Monologue

Here, let me Danesplain that for you (jjjusten), Friday, 20 January 2017 00:44 (four years ago) link

To respond wrt red panda, they're just notoriously flaky, tend to be out of products that are in demand for crazy crazy time periods. Like 9 months on the particle last year.

Oof. That's not a great way to run a business.

i've been looking at the few supro westbury videos available on line so far and yeah i think i might be a little bit in love - they def sound at least as good as they look

(altho wtf at premier guitar's 18-minute first look at the westbury, apparently shot on an several-generations-old phone camera with sound like a bee trapped in a jam jar)

That Red Panda dealie looks amazing, and it's about time another box did that nutso Space Station reverse-pedal thing.

(fwiw, I bought a blemished Particle from them this past summer, got it in about 3 days, and couldn't find any blemishes to speak of)

Holy shit there's a sterling version of th St. Vincent signature! How the hell did I miss that? Guess this is the year that I become a dealer.

Isn't it though?

jjjusten, Friday, 3 February 2017 00:03 (four years ago) link

yeah, it's wild - those pickups are just remarkable, kinda telecaster-y but def very much their own thing, and they sound so good with distortion and overdrive. and that satin neck is so nice!

thanks for the recommendation jjj!
