"Since day one it has been our goal to craft the finest guitars and amplifiers possible and I’m extremely proud of what we’ve achieved over the last 30 years," stated Paul Reed Smith. “The 30th Anniversary Concert and Celebration is designed to share what we’ve done and say thank you to our supporters.”

Stuart Bull, Tom Quayle, Hayley Leggs: The Electric Guitar Show an exciting new WebTV series fund raiser



THE IDEA https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-electric-guitar-show

Help us create The Electric Guitar Show an exciting new WebTV series created by guitarists for guitarists. Hosted by Stuart Bull, Tom Quayle and the fabulous Hayley Leggs TEGS is a fast moving format packed with guitar chat, features, interviews, gear reviews and star profiles. Above all TEGS is going to be fun with some great guitar playing from our hosts, our guests and our superb in house band.

All musicians share a special bond and TEGS wants to make that bond with the estimated 50 million guitar players out there across the world. Witty, edgy and driven by the adrenaline of a live audience there’s something for everyone whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro.

We are looking for £30,000 to fund the first series of six 45 minute shows which will be available FREE on www.electricguitarshow.com, Youtube and Vimeo during the summer 2015. We hope to build a fan base which will enable further series ofTEGS to build the global TV audience the electric guitar truly deserves.

THE SHOW

Throughout the series we will celebrate the style, sound and career of some of the world's greatest players. Each show will feature an artist and here the band really show their talent with some fantastic tributes. In My Guitar History we ask a guest how they came to chose their current axe and hear some of their embarrassing guitar stories of the past. Stu then guides them through the tricky Star with a Reasonably Priced Guitar challenge. You can also ask Stu about that difficult guitar part in Riffbusters.

Tom is not only a brilliant player but has that special gift to explain the technical side of guitars and guitar gear. Tom gives us some great tips on everything from guitar buying to equipment reviews to finding that elusive guitar tone. You can also contact him to solve your own guitar problem.

Hayley takes TEGS out on the road and is working on stories like Why Relic a Perfectly Nice Guitar?, Attack of the Cover Bands and Marshall: 50 Years of Glory. She also takes a regular peek at some of the Online Guitar Heads who inhabit the internet. We will also introduce Professor Rock – journalist Malcolm Dome is our very own walking talking encyclopedia of rock.

There’s also a chance for you to play a part in the programme. We will be using the best comments and ideas from our social media site. There will also be competitions with some great gear prizes and giveaways.

Please visit www.electricguitarshow.com for more background on our presenters, guests, band as well as what’s coming up. You can also browse some of our exclusive merchandise.

News: Orange Amplification Introduce Rockerverb MK III

Orange Amplification Introduce New Rockerverb MKIII Series
Orange Amplification is proud to announce the launch of the third generation of its British built Rockerverb Series guitar amplifiers. This latest incarnation, the Orange Rockerverb MKIII, sees the most significant changes to the series to date, and is available in 50W and100W head formats or as a 50W 2x12” combo - in its original top loading design. Bringing together over a decade of user feedback with numerous improvements to the iconic design, the new models are some of the finest sounding and most feature-laden amps the company has ever produced.

The highly versatile twin channel layout has been reworked, with a re-voiced non-master Clean Channel which now takes on a more ‘chimey’ nature. Combined with a richer and more usable valve driven spring reverb, the MKIII produces an abundance of classy, shimmering rhythm tones via a new two band EQ. The Dirty Channel now carries much more of a punch, whilst retaining all of the character which made the Rockerverb so popular. From edgy British overdrive, to ferocious riffing tones and full-on soaring leads - it’s all there!

Orange Rockerverb MKIII models have even more headroom but, in a first for the series, the latest version now features power scalingacross the range. The 100W head can be tamed from full power to 70, 50 or 30W, whilst the 50W models can be switched down to half power.

For even greater flexibility, the MKIII also includes Orange’s ever-popular footswitchable Attenuator, allowing guitarists to push the output stage of the amplifier into breakup at any volume. Unlike a load box, Orange’s Attenuator design maintains the all-important relationship between the output transformer and the speaker. Even at ‘bedroom levels’, the playing response remains springy, immediate and inspiring. The footswitch feature adds another level of functionality, meaning the Attenuator can be defeated remotely for a clean boost to jump out of the mix in a live setting.

Completing the whole package is a highly transparent, low impedance valve buffered effects loop, ensuring an all valve signal path from input to output.

Whilst the previous version may have been an almost impossible act to follow, with a host of updates and refinements, the stunning MKIII is set to reaffirm the Rockerverb’s position as the rig of choice for touring and recording artists the world over.

Visit the Orange Amplification booth C45 Hall 4.0 at Musikmesse 2015 to see the new Rockerverb MKIII guitar amps and other new products, or visit www.orangeamps.com for more information.

Scott Henderson: Guitar Virtuoso To Release Instrumental Album and Tour dates


Guitar Virtuoso Scott Henderson To Release Instrumental Album For Guitar Trio “Vibe Station” on May 1, 2015

"Los Angeles, CA – Guitar virtuoso Scott Henderson has finished his new album “Vibe Station”, the most ambitious project of his career! The highly anticipated instrumental album for guitar trio will be released on May 1, 2015.

Says Scott, “I'm really excited about this record because our trio has been touring a lot and that energy came through on all the performances. The music is still blues-based, but also has a lot of harmonic content. The big change is no vocals, which challenged me as a guitarist to write material which can be played in a vocal way on the guitar, while incorporating my own chord-melody style. I think fans will enjoy the scope of this record because it has elements of blues, rock, jazz and funk. There's something for everyone here.”

Scott also said that the majority of the songs are layered with multi guitar tracks, utilizing many different guitars, pedals, amps and speaker combinations, making it the most textural and versatile sounding album he's ever done. Travis Carlton on bass and Alan Hertz on drums make this project and live show very much groove-based.

Says Scott, “I need to see people moving in their seats. I'm not interested on putting on an intellectual show for musicians only. I don't believe I need to dumb down the music to appeal to people who aren't musicians, because when Travis and Alan play together, the groove is going to attack you whether you're a musician or not”.

Scott Henderson's impressive work over the years as co-leader of the group TRIBAL TECH, leader of his own ground breaking trio, and sideman to some of the best jazz artists of their generation, including the great Joe Zawinul, has elevated him to the front ranks of both Jazz and Blues. Besides being a world class player and premier composer, Scott's trademark is his beautiful tone and striking ability to blend Blues, Rock, Funk, and Jazz, creating a soulful and unique voice on the guitar.

Expect to hear Scott on the top of his game on his April 2015 Europe tour.

Scott Henderson's “Vibe Station will be available for purchase on CDBaby and iTunes May 1, 2015:
