The "One" Plug In

Rarely ever do we find that "one" plug-in that we reach for on EVERY mix! Well, I have to say this is mine. The Drawmer S73 IMC is a go to, a staple, a foundational element, a…. Well you get the idea. In short, I LOVE IT!

Modeled after the real thing, it , makes me want to sell one of my kidneys and snag one up just so I can set around and drool on it. But seriously, I have been using it religiously and with good reason. Every mix when the balance is good, and you've EQ'd it to your taste, still has that missing 1%. For me, this plug takes it to the next level I was looking for.

Gear Review-Warman Pickups (Tennessee Revival)

Recently I was not happy at all with the tone that was coming out of my Cort (Les Paul style) guitar. I knew that it needed rewired and I thought I would go ahead and replace the pickups while I was at it.
It didn't take long to figure out that that was going to cost me an arm and a leg! Then I stumbled upon Warman Guitars and was blown away. I thought the prices on eBay were wrong or something! So I emailed their customer service and found that indeed they were that affordable. Needless the say I was not let down, just give these tracks a listen and make your own decision.
