MOOER releases new BLACK TRUCK

All-in-one pedalboard

Shenzhen, – AUGUST 8, 2018 – Following the success of last years RED TRUCK combined effects pedal, MOOER have been back in the tool shed to bring you the latest all-in-one pedalboard unit, BLACK TRUCK. Each of the MOOER truck products consist of a comprehensive selection of Stompbox circuits that are paired up with a loop switcher, tuner, FX loop and dedicated cab sim output, all neatly housed in a single road worthy unit, doing away with the inconvenience and expense of additional patch cables, pedalboard, and specialist power supplies.

Incredibly versatile and useful as a tool for all styles of music, BLACK TRUCK has been designed with a carefully selected array of popular analog pedals from the MOOER MICRO SERIES to make up the COMPRESSOR, OVERDIVE and EQ modules. A brand new “amp like” analog HI-GAIN distortion has been developed specifically for this product, which in itself, covers a huge spectrum of tonal possibilities. The analog modules are complemented well by a digital multi-modulation pedal and a digital ambience engine, simply named SPACE, which consists of a high quality digital delay and a stereo reverb.

Following feedback from last year’s release, BLACK TRUCK has an independent level control added to its dedicated cab sim output and a brand-new algorithm behind the tuner, providing more precise tuning at a faster speed than ever before.

MAIN FEATURES:

  • 6 effects pedals built into 1 unit. Compressor, Overdrive, Distortion, EQ, modulation, Delay/Reverb
  • Built-in precision guitar tuner
  • Tap tempo synchronization
  • Integrated effects loop for connecting external pedals or 4-cable method connection with an amplifier
  • Stereo outputs
  • Dedicated direct output with speaker simulation and an independent volume
  • Control for connection to a mixing desk, computer or headphones
  • Includes a carry case for easy transportation

Column: The Woods in the Electric Guitar

There is a widely held misconception in the electric guitar community that the woods in the electric guitar are not that important and that what produces a good electric guitar tone is solely dependent on the pickups. This can’t be further from the truth. The woods in the electric guitar mean a lot more to your tone that you realize. Learn More Now

The new Cort 200ATV(Aged to Vintage) Series

 

Some guitar players are strictly focused on the sound of their instruments. They have little interest in fancy visual appointments that have no effect on the tonal quality they seek. With these discriminating tone hounds in mind, Cort has developed the new 200ATV Series of acoustic guitars. Featuring Torrefied solid Sitka Spruce top and bracing, Ebony fretboard, genuine bone nut and saddle and Ebony bridge pins, and Pau Ferro back&sides, every aspect of the 200ATV is about getting the best possible resonance and sound. With the focus on sound, some deluxe appointments have been omitted but doing so also makes the 200ATV acoustic guitars a stunning value for musicians who prioritize sound quality above all else. Learn More Now

What Makes Us Different?

 

Most of us are musician’s too. Many of us are drummers. All of us love music. We get that you want awesome drums at a great price. But we also understand that the very act of playing is cathartic and transcends any brand. Look, we’d like everyone to play Mapex, but mostly we want fellow musicians to love playing. If we can help make that happen for you, we won’t let it end there.

 

We want your brutal honestly. We want your help in making Mapex drums the instrument that allows you to express yourself to the max.

 

We really enjoy what we do. We feel fortunate to be able to interact with other drummers every day.

What About The Drums?

 

It starts with the raw materials. Building the highest quality product initially depends on the expertise of those that select the the wood. Premium grade hardwoods like maple, walnut, birch and basswood are hand-selected from worldwide sources and are then matched by skilled experts to ensure that every drum Mapex produces carries with it the signature tonal and resonant properties that define the distinctive Mapex sound.

 

Let’s face it, looks are important too. All of our lacquer drums have eight-coat, hand-rubbed, high-gloss lacquer applied to each shell. Mapex finishes are durable, easy to maintain.

 

The details do matter. Our isolated tom mounting system ensures the sound you hear is all tom. From the bearing edges to the easy set bass drum claws, our dedicated artisans think like musicians and apply their expertise to creating a drum set that lets you focus on your playing and not on the equipment.

 

Every drum gets the same treatment. Regardless of price, we want every drum we craft to be built to exacting specifications. We want you to start out on Mapex and love it so much that when you make it big, you remember us.

 

We stand behind our instruments. Our artisans are relentless in designing and producing drums and hardware that can endure performance after performance. The result is a drum that you take on stage or into the studio with complete confidence.


 

Mapex Drums will be available in all Lazer Music stores this August 2017

The Vibe of the Parlor Body

There is something to be said about the sound, feel and vibe of an acoustic parlor body guitar. It isn’t ideal for strumming big-sounding open chords like on a dreadnought or playing blazing single-note lines up and down the neck like one would on a cutaway grand auditorium. But it has something different: character. Cort’s new Luce L900P-PD embodies our vision of what a quality parlor body acoustic should look, sound, feel and play like. Learn More Now


Here Comes the Cover Model

Cort’s Artisan Series basses are the cover story subject of Germany’s highly respected Bass Quarterly Magazine. The magazine article provides an in-depth look at the well-regarded Artisan basses. The conclusion from the magazine is that the Artisan basses measure up to boutique-level basses that professional players need. Learn More Now

Cort artist and endorsee Jeff Berlin recently shared a video clip from his performance in Buenos Aires that also featured jazz-rock drum legend Billy Cobham and fusion guitar virtuoso Scott Henderson.

Guitar of the Month: G260 Alder

The new Cort G260 Alder is a modern take on the timeless classic bolt-on electric guitars from the 60’s. The defining wood combination of this era was alder body on a maple neck with rosewood fretboard. This wood combo has been time-tested for over five decades and remains as popular as ever on production guitars as well as high-end custom jobs. Learn More Now
