Mick Taylor (Guitarist)March 27, 2015, 16:37 GMT
Powerhouse jumbo with astonishing bass that you can also pick. A preconception changer.
Dan 'JD73' Goldman (Future Music)March 27, 2015, 15:01 GMT
The JD-Xi's feature-set, versatility and sound quality are unrivalled at this price point. What's not to like!
Nick Guppy (Guitarist)March 27, 2015, 11:59 GMT
A versatile head that conjures up superb classic rock and blues tones.
Mo Volans (Future Music)March 27, 2015, 11:34 GMT
An awesome bit of hardware. With bullet-proof build quality and intuitive control, it's a no-brainer.
Mick Taylor (Guitarist)March 26, 2015, 16:33 GMT
Thoughtful evolution of Taylor's stalwart 14ce mould, making brilliant and beautiful use of solid maple.
Dave Burrluck (Total Guitar)March 26, 2015, 16:15 GMT
It might be one of the least original instruments we've looked at for some time, but you can't knock the craft or quality.
Si Truss (Future Music)March 26, 2015, 15:01 GMT
It lacks a little of Komplete's 'edge', but Advance is a nice concept and great value.
Dave Holmes (Rhythm)March 26, 2015, 13:10 GMT
An exceptional, beautifully hand-crafted snare.
Stuart Williams (Rhythm)March 26, 2015, 8:15 GMT
Toontrack has no shortage of metal sounds in its catalogue, each one produced by world-class people, but think of this as an extra palette. Of course you'll need EZdrummer 2 to run it, but at £50, it's almost robbery.
Nick Guppy (Guitarist)March 25, 2015, 16:00 GMT
A fantastic recording amp that looks good in any setting.
