Josh Baldridge – Martin Acoustic Guitars - Custom Shop Dreadnought Wild Grain EIR
Our Custom Shop Martin from NAMM has now arrived! Matt and I had a blast picking out the woodset and putting together a beautiful D-28 Style dread with some hot rodded specs. Adirondack top, hide glue, forward shifted bracing...it lives up to everything I was hoping it would be while choosing the specs.
Check out the custom Wild Grain Rosewood on this Martin!
Jim Baggett – Collings Acoustic Guitars - OM2H Traditional T Series - Baked
Wonderful small-bodied OM that sounds nice and even like an old guitar.

Eric Putnam – Stomp Under Foot - Pink Hellephant
First ever custom made pedal for Mass Street Music! The Pink Hellephant is an overdrive, and fuzz in the same enclosure. The overdrive is a low-medium gain overdrive that sounds great with humbuckers, or single coils. The fuzz half is a lower gain version of the Stomp Under Foot Hellephant. They work great by themselves as stand alone circuits, or if you want some out of control fuzz tones you can stack the two!

Matt Pelsma – Zvex Vexter - Fat Fuzz Factory
I have used one of these for the last four months on my board and I love it for really gross, amp melting sounds. Dial in a fuzz that has a glitch-y attack or ride the volume knob for some unique squealing action. The size and artwork is cool, and stomping on the switch is very satisfying.

Brian Soden – JHS Effect Pedals - The AT (Andy Timmons) Signature Channel Drive
Wow! This thing is so addictive. Super rich British flavor with tons of gain on tap. Open chords are clear and balanced, even with the gain cranked up. I'm diggin' it!

Trey Durkin – Leo Posch Acoustic Guitars - L-M
So cool! Awesome smaller slope shoulder body with a 13-fret neck joint makes for a unique tone. Strong and bold enough for loud flatpick bass runs, but an even response and treble clarity make it a great choice for strumming and fingerstyle alike. This is a dream guitar for old-time music. It has been tempting me ever since it showed up in the store!

I like our new/old Weymann Conversion banjo. It has a nice, punchy sound and the new neck makes it easy to play. The engraved pinwheel and star inlays are a classy touch, and it's light weight makes it easy to hold on your lap, or to stand and play for hours with no shoulder pain! Comes with a skin head and a Guardian feather case.

I love the simplicity of this amp. Volume, tone, two inputs and lots of tube amp tone. Even pushed to breakup it's not overly loud.
