If you've ever fancied Victory's acclaimed Duchess tone, but struggled with the entry price, the British amp firm has a solution for you, and we were lucky enough to get a demo from Chris Buck, the man you voted the best blues guitarist of 2019.

Eric Johnson's in town to launch his latest Fender signature guitar, the Virginia Stratocaster. We grabbed a chat.

We cornered Orange Technical Director Ade Emsley, and quizzed him about the new Terror Stamp pedal amp.

We've crowned Positive Grid Spark 40 the best amp on show at NAMM. For the rest of the winner's head to Best of NAMM 2020.

Manson Guitar Works META Series Matt Bellamy MBM-1 Signature Guitars are looking good, and they're actually affordable.

Fender's vibrant metal HM Strat has been plucked, rather unexpectedly, from the archives.

Here it is; opsix, Korg's big surprise for NAMM 2020.

We grabbed a demo of Lumatone, the coolest isomorphic MIDI keyboard we’ve ever seen.

The Fender Custom Shop has put on its usual show-stopping blingathon, and this $500k Strat is just for starters.

Pittsburgh Modular's Delay Network demoed to within an inch of its life.

We've been checking out the new LR Baggs Soundscape. It could be a gamechanger for acousgtic tone - look out for our video demo very soon.

The Lumatone isomorphic keyboard is certainly eye-catching, and potentially pretty useful, too, particularly if you like your music microtonal.

It looks like Korg is springing an FM surprise with the DX7-ish opsix.

We got an exclusive first look at Roland's latest V-Drum offerings, the TD-27 and its e-wolf in sheep's clothing, the Acoustic Design series.

More Korg. Here we have the ARP 2600 which, by the way, we've already reviewed!
