Taylor Guitars Roadshow at Waltons

A big thank you to all who came along to the Taylor Guitar Road Show at Waltons Music in Georges Street last night. We were delighted to have such a well-attended event. And thank you to Simon and Ron from Taylor Guitars who brought their wit, talent and a fantastic array of Taylor guitars with them for the first time to Dublin. They entertained and enlightened an eager audience of both young and old guitar players who eagerly tested out the fantastic array of Taylors on display at the interval and at the end of the event.

The very knowledgeable Simon explained the differences between  the woods and body shapes of the guitars and the tones they produce and a very talented Ron demonstrated each one with his impeccable guitar playing. At the end we were treated to a superb demo of the very new and dinky T5z.

The Roadshow wrapped up with a box of Taylor goodies being handed out to “everyone in the audience” and the draw was held for the big prize of the night – a Taylor GS Mini Acoustic Guitar. The delighted winner was Jason Flynn – enjoy your new guitar Jason!

Premier Guitar Review Gives the Dunlop Crybaby Mini Wah the Thumbs Up

Apr15_LNU_CBM95M_CyrbabyMini_WEB

Quick Hit: Dunlop Cry Baby Mini Wah
Built around a Fasel inductor, the Dunlop CBM95 Cry Baby Mini sounds fat, with a full, vocal sweep. Compared to a newer, full-size Cry Baby, it sounds every bit as good—if not better, since the internal switch lets you choose between low, vintage, and CB95 modes to tailor tones to your rig and style. I favored the way the low voicing tamed my trebly, Fender-centric rig.
Does it feel weird? Mostly not. It works and feels best with your foot situated as you would on a standard-sized wah—with the back of your arch over the fulcrum. You just have to get used to the ball of your foot and toes hanging over the top edge. You still have all the necessary leverage for slow sweeps and quarter-note funk dots. To avoid activating other pedals, you have to be careful about pedalboard placement, too. Overall, this Mini is as capable as it is cute.

The Crybaby Mini is available in Waltons for just €133.50
