Sweet! New sticker for the ‘ol guitar case

Posted by Terry

A customer thankful for a good customer service experience with his Brigadier recently sent us some stickers as little tokens of appreciation. What makes this extra special is that he happens to be serving our country, specifically as part of the NATO AWACS E3-A component. Needless to say, this sticker went straight on the guitar case for my SG!

Phil from Matchless rocking a Brigadier

Posted by Terry

Ethan and I met up with Phil Jamison at the Matchless HQ in Los Angeles recently to let him play through our Brigadier delay and blueSky reverberator. He dug the pedals! Phil is the amp designer over at Matchless. He’s a very genuine, good guy and it was a treat to see the Matchless facility and production line.

Below: camera phone shot of Phil rocking a Brigadier in front of one of his C-30 heads.
