Guitar Pedals

Guitar Pedals
  • Boss GE-7B - [Bass Equalizer]
  • Boss NS-2 - [Noise Suppressor Pedal]
    Eliminate unwanted noise and hum without altering your tone. A unique noise detection circuit preserves the natural attack and envelope, leaving your playing and dynamics intact.
  • Ibanez TS-808 Tube Screamer - [Carbon Composition Resistors Brown Mod, More/Less Drive Mod & More Bass Mod]
  • Peterson StroboStomp 2 - [The most accurate tuner money can buy, also with 100% true bypass.]
  • Radial Tonebone Classic Trimode - [Tube Distortion / Overdrive Pedal]
    The Radial Tonebone Classic Trimode is the most progressive pedal ever!

    Trimode gives you instant access to superb clean, rhythm and lead tones without tap dancing. And tone you will receive. Based on the heritage of America's finest tube amplifiers, the Trimode delivers five generations of tone from the slight overdrive of early rock & roll to blistering power tones of today's high gain amps.

    Following the award-winning Tonebone Classic, the Radial Tonebone Classic Trimode combines the warmth and even harmonics of a 12AX7 tube with our unique dual-stage drive for the natural dynamics and response of a vintage tube amp.

    As the name implies, Trimode has three settings: 'True Bypass Clean Mode' for the natural tone of your guitar - direct to your amp; 'Rhythm Mode' with input drive, output gain and our unique Interstage™ drive to precision-tune the mayhem you are about to unleash; and 'Solo Mode' with its own input drive, output gain, and mid boost for days of sustain. Trimode goes even further with a built-in effects loop on the solo channel that lets you instantly engage a delay or pedal chain with a single foot action.

    Radial Tonebone Classic Trimode: 3 modes, huge tone and amazing dynamics – finally, a pedal that sounds and feels like a real tube amp!

    Radial Tonebone Classic Trimode main features include:

    * True bypass clean mode
    * Dynamic rhythm distortion mode
    * Sustaining lead distortion mode
    * 12AX7 tube for natural overdrive tone
    * Effects loop on lead solo channel
  • Radial Tonebone Switchbone - [AB-Y switcher with Exclusive Drag™ control pickup load correction]
  • Rocktron Zombie Rectified Distortion Pedal
    With a monstrously heavy sound, the Zombie creates a rectified asymmetric distortion with user control of the symmetry balance of the distortion output waveform.
  • Tone Jam FX Stealth Black Sniper GE-7

Guitar Amps

Guitar Amps
  • Marshall MF350 - Mode Four Head - [Dual Amplifier with Four Modes]
    Marshall MF350 - Mode Four Head
    The Mode Four MF350 has four different modes to switch between. Attitude, stunning good looks and an incredible 350 watts of brutal yet toneful power set the MODE FOUR apart from all other amps.

  • Peavey 3120 - [Versatile three-channel 120 watt amp ]
    Peavey 3120
    The Peavey 3120 Guitar Amplifier Head a versatile three-channel amp with 120 watts of power, capable of producing guitar tones from crisp and clean to total high-gain saturation.

    The Peavey 3120 Guitar Amplifier Head features three fully independent all-tube, tone-shaping channels. he Lead and Rhythm channels feature gain and volume controls and an active three-band EQ, while the Clean channel offers nicely rounded tones crafted by a passive three-band EQ and volume control. A global master volume governs the amount of power put out by its four EL34 or 6L6GC power-amp tubes, while the gain controls on the Lead and Rhythm channels adjust the amount of 12AX7 gain saturation.

    The Peavey 3120 rear panel hosts a unique Peavey custom tone control feature, a three-setting damping switch that alters speaker resonance to create tight, medium and loose tones, from a precise punch for rhythmic attack to a full, widely resonant sound. Also on the rear panel is a footswitchable effects loop with dedicated send and return controls and a line out with level control.
  • Peavey Classic 50/50 - [8 X EL84 All Tube Poweramp]
    This is a monstrous all valve rack mounted power amp for guitar with 8 x EL84 valves in it.

    It's also the perfect partner to the Peavey TubeFex Valve Pre Amp
  • Peavey Musicians Series 1978 - [A truly classic Peavey Amp]
  • Peavey Triple XXX - [The ULTIMATE tone machine.]
    Peavey Triple XXX
    As hot as the name implies, the XXX® rips. An amp not for the faint of heart, 120 watts, utilizes four 12AX7 preamp tubes and four 6L6GC power amp tubes.
  • Peavey TubeFex Valve Pre Amp - [2 X 12AX7 Valve Guitar Pre Amp]
    Peavey TubeFex Valve Pre Amp
    This is a stunning valve guitar pre amp that uses 2 X 12AX7's and is still the secret weapon of so many famous metal & rock guitarists it's embarrassing...

    These things weren't exactly cheap when they first came out, which meant most folks couldn't afford them 10 years ago, never mind the Classic 50/50 to go with it, now they are as rare as hens teeth & super hard to find because when someone manages to get hold of one they never want to sell it...

  • 2 x Adam P33A - [3 Way Active Nearfield Studio Monitors ]
    The Adam P33A 3 way Active Nearfield Monitors are designed for applications where deeper bass and louder volumes are needed, ideally suited for professional recording and broadcast facilities.

    One woofer acts as a full-range driver with the second woofer joining it only below 150Hz. This unusual approach effectively doubles the area and power of the woofer when it needs to respond to deeper frequencies, resulting in an exceptional low end without compromising midrange performance. The P33A is a shielded near/midfield monitor and has three 100W amplifiers that deliver outstanding dynamic performance. It can be used either horizontally or vertically, so that very flexible positioning within the studio is possible. Featuring superb imaging as a result of ADAM’s proprietary A.R.T. (Accelerated Ribbon Technology) folded ribbon tweeter, the P33A is ideally suited for professional recording and broadcast facilities.

    The tweeter is the same in all Adam monitors. You get the same superior resolution above 2 kHz from these monitors that sets all Adam loud speakers apart from their competitors and by applying moderate equalization to the low end nearly an additional octave in bass response is achieved compared with a passive system. The P-33A woofers and tweeter are each powered by separate 100W RMS amplifiers and are actively crossed over at 150 Hz/1.8 kHz. The system's frequency-response has highs extending all the way to 35 kHz and lows down to 34 Hz (±3 dB).

    Grado RS-1
    Featuring handcrafted Mahongany earpieces made using an intricate curing process, Grado has been able to optimize the tonal quality. The RS1 uses dynamic transducers in an open-air configuration, the cups being open-backed. The result is a smooth, coherent sound with detailed dynamics. Frequency response ranges from 12-30 kHz and the drivers are matched to 0.05dB. Weighing 9oz, the headphones are an example of the wonder of mother nature with a gorgeous, honey-colored look.
