Musik Messe Frankfurt
Again this year Carl participate the annual Messe Frankfurt April 15-18.
We would be more than thrilled to see you at our both, show you the new upcoming products from Carl, talk about the old pedals, or just gear talk in general.
But friends not the least we’re looking forward to present our new brand Roadie Amplification, a sub-brand under Carl Martin opening with the fantastic little 15W combo “Bandmate 15”, Carl call it “Working Mans Boutique” and to very affordable prices.
Bandmate 15 Combo
This is Carl’s newest baby…. a 1 x 12, 15 watt Class A combo that will shake the very stage you set up on. The simplified controls include Volume, Bass and Treble with a Bright switch thrown in for ultimate control of your tone. One of the very special features on Carl’s new amp is the Reverb…. it has been wired in a way that allows the guitar player to use Reverb with his sound just like any other amp; adjusting it with the Reverb Volume and Reverb Tone, or as a stand alone Reverb unit….just like those famous Reverb boxes from years back. The amp takes advantage of Accutronic’s larger reverb tank and Celestion’s Vintage 30 speaker, plus matched El 84 power tubes to produce your favourite Vintage tone! From an articulate clean to a thick, crunchy over-driven tone when cranked up, The Bandmate 15 Combo is an affordable and compact answer for rehearsals and small venue gigs. Carl has also included a Remote Switch input for switching the reverb on and off, plus alternate outputs for adding speaker cabs.

Friends please check out this Single Channel AC-Tone video by Josh Goosh. Josh was chosen over 4000 other guitar players to reach the national finals of Guitar Center’s King Of The Blues contest. Josh has since been touring with Japanese superstar Koshi Inaba of B’z. Recorded with producers Ross Hogarth and Don Gehman, toured with blues artist Beth Hart, and currently plays lead guitar for Shania Twain.
Please check this out, a new fabulous demo by EytchPi42 We’ll take a good look at Carl Martin’s OCTASWITCH and see what is so special about this looper. It looks pretty simple and without many features, but the possibilities will surprise you !
Friends another fine video from James Mulvaney, this time it’s the Single AC-Tone at at medium gain.
I like this sound because it still sounds very like a strat and articulate yet there’s plenty of gain there at the same time.
Not many pedals pull that off I think, James say.
