Art Thompson's PIcks from Summer NAMM 2010

NAMM 2

 Blackstar HT-Blackfire

Co-developed by Gus G, who is currently tearing it up with Ozzy Osbourne, the HT-Blackfire is a two channel, tube-powered distortion pedal aimed at metal players. Its Fire channel delivers a more classic high-gain classic distortion sound, while the Fury channel heads to the metal zone with ridiculous amounts of gain. That said, the pedal is very dynamically responsive and could be used for any style of music where a wide range of distortion textures are needed. The pedal has a durable finish that feel a bit like suede leather, along with an ISF control, Gain and Volume controls for each channel, and speaker emulation on the output.

NAMM 4

Jack Deville Buzzmaster
Described as the "world's quietest high-gain fuzz pedal" the Buzzmaster ($250 direct) uses germanium transistors to deliver fuzz textures with enough gain range for anything from blues to metal. The tones I heard from the demo covered the spectrum from sweet and sustaining to massively buzzed, and the pedal is surprisingly quiet too, courtesy of Deville's Click-Less bypass circuit (available separately for user installation into other pedals), which provides relay-driven, noise-free switching.

 Traveler Escape EG-2
The all-new EG-2 ($450 street), which come in a white finish, features a 25.5"-scale neck, a double-cutaway body, a pair of single-coil pickups, and a built-in headphone amp with selectable distortion. Above it is the Escape MK-II ($449 street), which is designed for acoustic-electric players and sports an L.R. Baggs Custom Element hybrid pickup. Both instruments are very compact, but they have the playing feel of standard instruments because of their full-sized necks.

NAMM 6

 

Taylor GS Mini
Though designed to be compact and portable, the GS Mini ($678 retail) delivers a surprisingly big sound and has the playing feel of a larger guitar. Specs include a solid Sitka spruce top, African sapele laminated back and sides, and a 23.5"-scale ebony fretboard. Tuned to standard pitch, the GS provides excellent playability and is the perfect thing to take to the beach or on camping trips. And if you want to go electric, Taylor offers the optional ES-Go plug-in soundhole pickup for the GS Mini, which features quick, snap-in installation and comes with a pre-wired endpin jack that's super easy to install. Also available: the new V-Cable (made by Rapco-Horizon), which puts a built-in volume control right at your fingertips and can be switched off for noiseless unplugging.
