The War On Drugs: A Deeper Understanding

maxresdefault

If you are a fan of ‘The War On Drugs’, you’ve no-doubt been enjoying the new album: A Deeper Understanding.  Released late last month (8/25/17), it has received plenty of praise.  NPR described the new album as a ‘balance of ambition and grace’; we’d agree with that.  Inspired songwriting and ambitious production make it fabulous to listen to. While Adam Granduciel’s writing is often compared to Springsteen and Dylan, we think he style is unique unto-himself.  Our attention was grabbed in the recent interview with The Guitar Magazine where Granduciel discusses his Gretsch Falcon and the modification of adding a Bigsby.  Known for a variety of gear, Granduciel mentions having had the Falcon for two years before adding a Bigsby–after seeing Neil Young use his Bigsby-equipped Falcon at a benefit show. Neil Young has certainly inspired many players to use a Bigsby! He’s a true master!

While the Bigsby equipped Falcon can be heard at various points in the album, perhaps the most use is on Thinking of a Place. You can check it out on YouTube here:

Returning to the spectacular Music City Center, Summer NAMM 2017 was incredible! As the music industry gathered it was easy to see why Nashville is also known as Music City.  While the summer show is certainly smaller than winter (in Anaheim, CA) there was no shortage of great new products as well as long loved essentials. 2017  was a real hoot! Part of the fun of these shows is get together with friends and, and as such we loved shared space with our pals at TV Jones,! Their B12’d Spectra Sonic Supreme is absolutely incredible! Additionally, there was tons of other great products all around the show–many new this year!–that feature our vibratos.  Be sure to check out more from our gallery from the show HERE to see more.  As always, we had a great time and our sincere thanks to everyone who stopped by! Music Industry Day was a great success and we thank you all for that too! See you next time!

With an estimated 100,000 attendees roaming the massive grounds in Frankfurt April 5-8 and visiting the 1,922 exhibitors from an astounding 55 countries, this years event was spectacular! A huge array of products from every corner of the industry and globe gave attendees  the chance to have personal ‘hands on’ time with the latest and greatest gear.  Sharing space with our good friends TV Jones is always a treat and having Chris Casello doing demos is the icing on the cake! We can thank them enough! Check out the short clip below for a taste.

We always love checking out all of the great guitars and talking with the builders that use Bigsby vibratos, but we’d love also love to hear and see your photos from the Musikmesse of your favorite Bigsby equipped guitars. Below are a few shots from the booth.  Thanks for a great event–see you next time!
