ThePower blade is the latest addition to our blade arsenal. With its thick steel blade, optimized wind, and ceramic magnets providing an authoritative low-end punch, the Power Blade will distribute a forcefield of fat slap fury that is tamed and guided by a super smooth top end. With half of its tonal DNA being derived from the classic P design, its character is inherently reminiscent of that hard-hitting P bass vigor we all love, only with a bit more girth in its low-end and translucent flow in its highs which works to facilitate the impressive character that is all its own. This P-style Big Blade split in half will satisfy any player looking for the power of a Big Blade without compromising the throaty fury of classic P tone.
Extensively designed, tested and built in the Nordstrand shop in Redlands, California, these pickups are available now at select dealers. Street prices start at $128 per set.

After years of development, Pigtronix is now launching the second version of its legendary Mothership analog synth pedal. Mothership 2 is a velocity sensitive, pitch-tracking, three-voice analog synthesizer with oscillator hard sync and pitch modulation via portamento and CV / expression control.

Bensalem, PA – Earlier this year, Ibanez introduced two new updated Bass Workshop models to their BTB Bass Series: the 5-string BTB745, and its 6-string companion, the BTB746. These new models were lauded for their new updated body shape, which took comfort and stability to a new level.
For Summer 2017, Ibanez is expanding the BTB700 series with the bold, new BTB747 7-string model— and its more traditional counterpart, the 4-stirng BTB740. Both basses feature the newly designed contoured body—for superior comfort—and a longer upper horn, which connects to the body at the 18th fret for improved stability and greater sustain. Other features include:
