DigiTech Sdrum Pedal DigiTech has introduced the Sdrum intelligent drum machine for guitarists and bassists. By scratching across the guitar strings, users teach the Sdrum a kick and snare pattern that forms the foundation of the beat they want to hear. Based on this pattern, the Sdrum supplies a professional-sounding drum beat with different embellishments and variations to complement the beat. The Sdrum stores up to 36 different songs and beats are played from a choice of five different kits covering a range of genres. The pedal also supports three different parts (e.g. verse/chorus/bridge) for each song that can be switched on the fly for enhancing live performances and exploring song ideas.

Cort GB75JH Electric Bass Cort has introduced the GB75JH electric bass guitar. This ad- dition to the GB7 series combines a proven body and bridge design with enhanced electronics, machine heads, and more. The tone, feel, and look of the GB75JH centres around its swamp ash body. Swamp ash is lightweight but offers a tight and punchy sound with a strong high-midrange. The wood’s distinctive grain patterns are visible through the transparent finish and clear pickguard. The GB75JH’s Canadian hard maple neck provides stability as well as a warm, beefy tone and reinforced upper midrange. The GB75JH’s ergonomic neck joint facilitates easy access to the upper register of the maple fingerboard, with dot inlays and 21 frets. The bass is equipped with two-band EQ with passive-active push-pull. The new Tone Bass Humbucker pickup provides both power and sensitivity for a variety of playing techniques, and an Alnico V magnet with 41AWG wire maintains rumbling power and clarity.
