Jeff Beck: Loud Hailer preorder

LOUD HAILER, legendary guitarist Jeff Beck's first studio album in six years, combines fluid fretwork with topical lyrics to make a powerful statement about everything from the love of power, to the power of love.

Loud hailer, which is another name for a megaphone, is a suitable moniker for an album that isn't shy about speaking its mind. The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer explains, "I really wanted to make a statement about some of the nasty things I see going on in the world today, and I loved the idea of being at a rally and using this loud device to shout my point of view."

To help him write the 11 tracks on LOUD HAILER, Beck enlisted two fierce young females from London - singer Rosie Bones and guitarist Carmen Vandenberg. Beck produced LOUD HAILER with Filippo Cimatti, who also works with Rosie and Carmen. In addition to the core trio, the album also features drummer Davide Sollazzi and bassist Giovanni Pallotti, who were both recruited by Cimatti. Bones lends her powerful voice to nine of the 11 songs on LOUD HAILER, which is then rounded out by two signature Beck instrumentals.

News: Cort MBC-1 Matt Bellamy Signature Model Now Available in Red Sparkle Finish

Cort MBC-1 Matt Bellamy Signature Model Now Available in Red Sparkle Finish

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA (June 7, 2016) — In 2015, Cort teamed up with Manson Guitar Works and musician Matthew Bellamy, the frontman and lead guitarist of Muse, to develop the Cort MBC-1 Matt Bellamy Signature Model electric guitar. The award-winning MBC-1 was built to replicate Bellamy’s custom-made Manson guitar, down to the resilient Matte Black (MBLK) finish. Now, the MBC-1 is available in Red Sparkle (RS), another signature Bellamy look that features a bright red base coat with holoflake finish. The MBC-1 RS promises the same sound and feel as its series partner, but with a stunningly vibrant color.

Manson developed special pickups for the MBC-1 model based on more than two decades of experience working with Bellamy. The versatile setup includes a fully voiced humbucker in the bridge and a true single coil neck pickup that reflects his stage and studio custom guitars. Simple and versatile, the MBC-1 features a single-volume control, master tone, and three-way switch that controls the humbucker/single coil pickup combination. These controls work together with the MBC-1’s discrete kill button that allows the player to creatively expand the guitar’s already wide range of sounds. The result is a big full tone with a rock-solid feel.

A fully adjustable tune-o-matic style bridge and stop tailpiece anchor the MBC-1’s basswood body. The single-cutaway instrument features a bolt-on, hard maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard and 25.5’’ scale length. On the headstock, the MBC-1 is equipped with die-cast locking tuners that are important to the character of the guitar’s sound and assure stage-ready tuning stability. Chrome hardware completes the look.

Just like the MBC-1 MBLK model, MBC-1 RS has been built to the exact and demanding specifications of Matt Bellamy, who has been recognized as one of the greatest rock guitarists of all time. Bellamy is the principal songwriter for Muse, an influential English rock trio formed in 1994. To date, the band has won two GRAMMY® Awards for Best Rock Album—The Resistance (2009) and Drones (2015). Bellamy was named a Cort signature model artist in 2015.

The MBC1-RS is priced at $649 MSRP.
