Alex Hutchings: boss demo's lims

Alex Hutchings must have been at a different LIMS to me... That said thank god there was players like Alex Hutchings, Andy James and Guthrie Govan plus the guitar idol players, as traditional guitar fire power expected at LIMS was considerably less than that at the German equivalent Muiskmesse.

A Timeless Classic ? the original '63 FenderR Spring Reverb is the sound that launched the surf-music phenomenon, and is a staple of rockabilly, country, and blues. Later, it became commonplace in grunge and other modern genres. Now the same legendary sound can be had in an affordable, rugged compact pedal.
