U2 Exclusive: The Edge's stage setup revealed

U2 Exclusive: The Edge's stage setup revealed | Guitar News-N-Tech Corner | Scoop.it

It has taken me the longest time ever to try to find what U2's lead guitarist, The Edge, has for his setup.  Before I go into the article, I have to say, U2 is handsdown one of my favorite bands out there. I went to their recent 360 tour and it absoltuly blew me away.  

 

The Edge's rig is massive and down right incredible.  From his 43 guitars he brings with on the road to the truck loads of electronic gear, all of which is used to create his unique and great sound.  

 

I know that some of these guitars and pedals I will never be able to afford.  BUT, its important to note that while reading this article, you can take notes to figure out what pedals are being used.  Pedal stations that Boss, Vox etc. create are pretty affordable and can come pretty close to what Edge does.  

 

I hope you enjoy this article as much as I did!

She's a totally different animal compared to the Squier axes I have, but over time I'll be able to set her up to where it will be just right for the way I play. In my experience it takes time before a guitar truly feels like yours.

These first-graders got the blues

These first-graders got the blues | Guitar News-N-Tech Corner | Scoop.it

One of our long time clients Mr Schwartz came in the guitar repair shop today for some work. We had a chance to catch up a little bit and learned that Jon Schwartz a local school teacher has been working with kids in his school teaching them things like history, reading writing and math through the Blues! The first-grade boys stood gamely before microphones on the stage of their school’s multipurpose room, singing the lyrics to “Sweet Home Chicago,” a blues standard.

Should you choose Ivory over a bone saddle?

Should you choose Ivory over a bone saddle? | Guitar News-N-Tech Corner | Scoop.it

I will never forget when one of my clients asked if i would instal an african hard ivory saddle and walrus tusk nut in his beginner guitar. The guitar sounded just...ok and we just didnt think that this upgrade would do a whole lot for the sound of the instrument being a laminated guitar, but we did it any way on the request of our client. The short of this story is, after we did the modification per our customers request it was very clear to see that even in a lower price pointed guitar that the hard ivory saddle and walrus nut performed a massive face lift and redemed it from the pit of despair. Read on for more inforamtion on how these materials can help bring some life in to your guitars.
