Last night I had the fortunate pleasure to be invited to see The Guillemots play an intimate gig in Manchester’s Hard Rock Cafe. With the release of the first of four studio albums this year – Hello Land – that’s correct, you heard right, FOUR ALBUMS, one can only assume they are one of the busiest bands on the scene right now.
Most of us are probably still getting used to the idea that Orange have actually released a signature amp, check out this nice little review from iGuitar Mag, because signature or no signature, it’s all about the music!
>AmpKit Update Version 1.1 - The guys at Peavey have just informed us there’s been a massive update to the AmpKit app which supports their guitar interface, the AmpKit LiNK. Now available for everyone, AmpKit 1.1 is available free to everyone who already purchased the AmpKit for iPhone/iPod touch. In addition, any gear (i.e amps, pedals, mics) you already purchased can be easily shared across devices using AmpKit’s Restore Purchases functionality. AmpKit 1.1 leverages the iPad’s seamless rotation between landscape and portrait orientations and takes full advantages of the iPad’s larger display.
PlayMusic PickUp sat down with the new Orange TH30 guitar amp head and one of Oranges new 410 speaker cabinets. “If I were in the market for a guitar amp right now I would buy one of these unreservedly: everything from the power rating to its features feels right, nothing feels superfluous and weighing its price against what it delivers the TH30 feels like a bargain. Certainly nothing in its class matches it for sheer bang for buck.” See what else they have to say and a great demo video….
