Sonoma Wire Works updates Guitartone and you benefit from it

Sonoma Wire Works has updated their iOS app of guitar tone goodness—cleverly named GuitarTone—to version 3. There are all-new tube models to choose from in their amp offerings that take advantage of improvements available in tone through iOS 10 devices. To celebrate the update, they’re also giving away some free amp and effect add-ons to early adopters. You may also win $300 worth of Sonoma Wire Works goodies. It’s a good day to be a Sonoma Wire Works and GuitarTone 3 fan/user.

What I think my perfect Pro Tone Pedals pedalboard would look like

This week I was lucky enough to purchase my second guitar pedal from Pro Tone Pedals. I already have the Skumstortion pedal—AKA greatest guitar pedal design ever—and I’m always sneaking a look at their lineup when the wife isn’t watching. Calling it pedal porn probably doesn’t help my cause. But when they recently announced that they were temporarilly offering their Dead Horse Overdrive for a ridiculous $99USD, I couldn’t resist—second Pro Tone Pedals overdrive-style pedal on its way to my current pedalboard. But this got me thinking further. What would my perfect Pro Tone Pedals pedalboard look like?

Luckily, I already knew the answer. I’d been thinking about this for a while. One of their most recent additions just cemented my thoughts—I need two more pedals from Pro Tone Pedals for my own tonal perfection. Somebody distract my wife.

Streamed music—how valet parking made me see its true value

I recently had a need to park my car at the local airport. It happens a few times each year for work and for pleasure. Most of the time I use the airport’s valet parking service. It’s easier than remembering where I left my car. Yes, I’m that lazy. But after the parking situation I experienced last week, I won’t be back. Ever.

What’s that got to do with streamed music and its superiority over physical media like CDs? Good question. Here’s my better answer.
