NAMM 2020 SPOTLIGHT | Chapman Guitars

Posted by Tim Fogarty on

With a heap of super cool new guitar model announcements the day of our arrival we were pumped to meet up with the lads from Chapman Guitars and get our eyes and ears well toasted.

NAMM 2020 SPOTLIGHT | Harmony, Heritage and Mono

Posted by Tim Fogarty on

One of the cleanest and classiest displays presented. It helped that the gear they have is pretty damn good too. As we are new dealers of Harmony Guitars it was a must see. The chance to hear and see the new Harmony amps! With two new amp series on show, the very cute 8418 Tube Combo (only available in USA at this point, we hope it changes) and the 600 series,...

NAMM 2020 SPOTLIGHT | Eastman Guitars

Posted by Tim Fogarty on

One of our most anticipated stands to visit across the NAMM show was the Eastman stand. A guitar manufacture that has resonated with both staff and the punters. The highest quality, hand-made, Nitro finished and USA pickup loaded guitars for an incredibly affordable price. We were keen to get our hands on the Eastman Romeo. (hurry up and get them to Australia!) and had heard of the new solid body single and double cuts with Lollar P90s they were launching. The award winning Romeo lived up to expectation. A hugely resonant and slightly larger than we'd thought. A beauty to...
