My Schecter Omen 6 story

I love my Schecter Omen 6. There are many reasons for that. The most important reason is that this is the guitar my wife convinced me to buy (in a way that I'll explain soon). Up until I purchased this guitar I had always researched my next guitar online in great detail. Not this time though. This time I knew I wanted another guitar, I just didn't know what it was that I wanted. So I went to a local guitar store with the intention of researching what else was out there. That day I not only decided, I purchased.

52 Amplifier Heads, week 38—Revolution Amplification Bully XX

In this weekly article series for what will become my first ever all-tube amplifier head, some amplifiers are easier to research than others. Some however, like today's Bully XX by Revolution Amplification are damn near impossible to find information on. Having said that, this amplifier appeals to me. It's priced right, it's a good wattage for a first amplifier head and the model I've selected is ultra high gain with a touch of darkness

I like it already.

The Scarebear plectrum map

I've made a few friends on social networks like Twitter and a few of those friends have commented on my custom Scarebear plectrums from Grover Allman. Is a few of a few one or two? Either way, I've mailed several plectrums to people from all over the place. Several must be more than a few because I know I've sent more than three plectrums. To prove my point, I made myself a plectrum themed map of the Earth with placeholders for the locations I've mailed plectrums to.

Rock Prodigy—awesome Blog content

I've written before about Rock Prodigy's initial iOS app collection and their PC software option for guitarists wanting to improve their playing skills. They were also kind enough to answer my six scary questions. This company is quite honestly one of my favourite guitar companies. They're not only creating very cool software, they're doing it to assist people with their guitar playing skills. There are many levels to their software allowing beginners through to experienced guitarists to learn something new and exciting. What's not to love there?

More importantly though, they also give away many lessons through their Blog. Kudos to them I say.

Custom leather guitar straps from Grover Allman

Last year I ordered some custom guitar plectrums from Grover Allman. They are quite honestly awesome. That's not only my opinion though. I've sent a few of these plectrums around the world over the last 12 months and people seem to love them. Just ask Evangelos Koudonas (he used them on his last Bandcamp release). So when I saw Grover Allman's Instagram post regarding custom guitar straps, I got excited. Then I contacted them and placed an order for a custom guitar strap to match my plectrums. What I've received has so far made my day/week/month/year. 

I love the smell of good leather.
