My Year In Gear

Total Guitar - - GEAR OF YEAR -

Rob Laing, TG Ed­i­tor

“See­ing bou­tique-level rich­ness com­ing to rel­a­tively af­ford­able amps from PRS and Black­star this year has been par­tic­u­larly great to see but I’m also learn­ing to love driv­ing ev­ery­thing from my ped­al­board. Af­ter buy­ing my col­league Mike’s Laney LC30 combo with the Ce­lestion G12 Cen­tury speaker he fit­ted, I found my­self with an amp that could go loud with min­i­mal breakup – very loud in fact! And that suites me fine; a de­pend­able crys­tal clean foun­da­tion to take ad­van­tage of my on­go­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tions in gain stack­ing with a Kee­ley D&M Drive and TC Spark boost. Specif­i­cally, how I can utilise that in my role as a vo­cal­ist / gui­tarist. The po­ten­tials of gain stack­ing are be­ing talked about a lot more now, and it’s some­thing we’re go­ing to look into deeper in a fu­ture is­sue of TG to help you.”
