TODAY (June 10, 2011) Is A Red-Letter Day!

I'm not talking about Les Paul's 96th birthday observance ... not even the 76th anniversary of the founding of AA.  Nope.  This is a red letter day for the guitar tone freaks of the world ... today is the day WGS begins taking orders for the new and totally awesome Liberator, and Invader!  Order away oh thou faithful!  I'll post video demos of these speakers on my blog soon!

Why Being a DJ Has Made Me A Better Band Leader

At the tender age of 15 I got my first real regular job, as a DJ at KKOJ, our little home-town radio station.  I worked three days a week after school and pulled two long week-end shifts; often I would sign the station on at 5:30am after having had a 9-1am band gig the night before.  I was young and it was awesome!  After graduation I worked another year or two as a DJ at several stations in Minnesota and Iowa.  I also started doing some mobile DJ gigs, mostly wedding dances.  In the last few years I have traveled back to the future, and through the purchase...

More of What You Want - WGS comparisons v. 2.0!

Hey everybody!  This week I’m back to comparing some popular WGS models head-to-head.   For the set-up, see last week’s blog.  I sincerely hope these comparisons are a useful aid for all of you in choosing a speaker!  Okay, it’s time to get back to the comparisons!  This week I’ve got some awesome comparison videos on-tap (like the Vet 30/Retro30), Read on! This week I start by comparing the WGS Reaper to the ET65.  Here’s the video (summery follows): Summery:  The ET 65 shows off it’s smooth, warm nature compared to the Reapers more focused...

You Want it, You Got it - WGS speaker comparisons!

Hi yaall!  Okay, so for many months now I’ve been receiving requests to do some vids where I compare WGS models to other similar WGS models.  Some common requests have been "what’s the difference between a Retro 30 and a Veteran 30?", and "how does a Reaper compare to a Green Beret?"   Please dear readers do not for a second allow yourselves to feel as though your requests have been falling on deaf ears!  It’ all in the timing, and I had been kind of wearing the video speaker shoot out thing a little thin.  But now that we’ve taken a nice long break ... it’s...

The Numbers Are In!

Thanks to those of you who took the time to complete my little survey, 37 as of my writing this.  A results overview can be viewed here.  This survey asked a few questions about your age, gigs, gear, and level of satisfaction; what I was trying to determine is if there was a trend as far as who was satisfied and who was not; armed with this knowledge, we could all become a little more of the former, and less of the latter!  So what did we discover?  Well, READ ON! Okay, so if you really want the nitty-gritty, check out the detailed response data HERE.  I was...

SPEAKER WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT - Vaughn's Big Fat Speaker Giveaway is oficially over!

Hi ya all!  We had some great entries in this contest, and deciding on a winner was tough.  We had some nice builder testimonials, and we always love to hear those!  We received some awesome stories from WGS tweak-heads about their hot-rodded custom rigs, and we had a few sad stories about how life as a musician can really stink during a recession. In the end the judges (that would be me and Daniel) were unanimous in their decision.  Our winner: Chris Mahoney from the "sunshine state" of Florida.  Even in Florida, Chris’ life has been in need of a little sunshine, and...

Guitarists, Unite to GET MORE GIGS!

This week I’ll talk about how to get gigs as a guitar player, but first, I’m going to do something amazing; and I’m quite sure never before done in any blog, anywhere, anytime:  Begin with a survey!  Man, what’ll I think up next??  So, take this quick survey, and then READ ON! My band playing at a local car show "cruise-in", just 3 miles from home, dude!You took the survey, right? Okay, so what’s the point?  The point is that, as a big musical family, we need to all help each other to find musical nirvana - that goldilocks spot that is just right for who we are, and...

WGS Speakers: Sound Great and Resist Flooding, too!

Hi ya all.  A quick update: If you have been following the news lately, you have no doubt seen and heard about the flooding in the Paducah area.  Well ... I am glad to report that the WGS facility suffered no damage.  Sadly, not all of Paducah was so lucky; being a river town has its ups and downs.  But you can rest assured that the tone shall continue to flow ;)

Matraca Berg

First off, a reminder:  There is still a week to go on my Big Fat Speaker Giveaway!  And now, on to this weeks blog!  This week I want to turn you on to one of the greatest singers and songwriters you may just possibly have never heard of, Matraca Berg.  I first met Matraca at the Bluebird Café in Nashville when she and I were both just barely in our twenties; the difference was that she had already had her first #1 hit, and I was fresh off the Iowa turnip truck and green as it gets!  I wanta tell you a little more about Matraca, and share a cool link to her...
