great OM-27 repair video!

A guy called the Guitologist (his name is Brad Linzy, based in Louisville, KY, USA ) specializes in vintage and high-end guitars and amplifiers with a penchant for the rare and unusual. He did this great video we had a chat & he'll be added to the repair section on the right side of the page! & be sure to check out  his YouTube channel for more great repairs.

in the spotlight: David Ramos

David Ramos was born in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain, in april 1974.
His first approach to electronic music was at the age of eight when he was given a Casio PT-1 electronic keyboard. In the early years he form several electronic bands and, in 2001, publishes his first commercial cd “Electronic Sounds Experience” under the name LowenStein. In this point he decides begin a solo career. He composes the music for a lot of short films and movies, like Jess Franco´s “Snakewoman (2005)” . 2008 is the year of “Nocturnatta” his first conceptual album, experimental, romantic and evocative, this album forms the basis for his later works. From this point he begins a new travel investigating on electronic, noise, experimental, sampling and circuit bending sounds until today. Nowadays he combines his own personal experiments on music, experimental projects and film soundtracks with the Gree-Do band concerts. Always in electronic, he is looking for new sounds to take to your ears and mind every single day.

The man who sold the ....Omnichord

The NAMM did an interview with Abe Thomas, a remarkable man who introduced the omnichord to the Americans. I met Abe years ago at the Frankfurter Messe, we've been keeping contact since.
Together we started the facebook group and now, for the first time, someone took the time to interview Abe about how it all started. enjoy this video, it's really great!
