The year, 2005 Steve Bragg fresh out of university for electrical engineering is asked by a friend to create a custom Tremolo pedal that he would later have no need for. Steve left with this creation sells it at a local music store and Empress Effects was born. Take that!
Another one of my favourite guitarists Steve Morse who besides his solo work has played with groups such as Deep Purple, Kansas, Dixie Dregs etc. has his own signature head amp from German manufacturer Engl.
Van Halen guitarist Eddie ushered in a whole new configuration of rock guitar. Utilized amps to suit his own sound. And never was his influence personified in one group till Fender corporation partnered with the veteran rocker to form EVH. The Wolfgang line of guitars and 5150 line of amplification is finally on solid ground.

In the late 80’s I had always wanted a Charvel bass but things didn’t go as planned. I did end up with a Jackson. Today they are no longer making basses just great sounding quality electric guitars.

George Lynch former Dokken guitarist and a tremendous solo act in his own right has had a series of signature guitars from the ESP guitar company since the eighties is back with a new model. The LTD Serpent 600.
Unfortunately this reproduction of one of the most famous drum kits in the history of Rock & Roll has been discontinued but can still be admired. No doubt infused with the iconic sound of the Ludwig brand this simple 4-piece kit solidified Ringo’s place in Rock history.
