At Guitarbitz we're ALWAYS thinking of new things that we think you'll love and we've recently had lots of awesome new gear through the door! Check out our top 5 new products so far this year and have a little read about what they can do! These are in no particular order, we love them all the same!
1) AKG Professional Headphones
We LOVE pro headphones. They're fashionable, cool, they make your music sound 10x better and they're excellent value for money. We've recently become a stockist of AKG pro headphones here at Guitarbitz and we have to say, they are incredible. Even the cheapest ones at £33.95 really kick some butt!

If you've only ever used your iPhone earphones then you won't believe the clarity and quality that Pro headphones give you, it's quite amazing. If you're into recording, mixing or you're doing any sort of work with music then a good set of 'cans' is an absolute must. So, we recommend a good pair of AKGs! Click to v…

Top 10 Guitars Under £300


 1.Sigma GME - http://www.guitarbitz.com/guitars-c48/electro-acoustic-guitars-c82/sigma-gme-electro-acoustic-natural-p2909
When you first sit down to play the Sigma GME, there are a few things you notice: 1. “Wow! I didn’t know I could play this well.” 2. "Oooo, is that a solid top?! Nice! I bet it’s expensive." 3. "How much! No way. Only £195!"
This Sigma may not be flashy, but when it comes to a great playing guitar at a great price, flashy is not what you need. Somehow, this solid top electro is able to boast a sub £200 price tag while playing and sounding like something over twice the price.
The top is made from solid Sitka Spruce that gives a juicy full range of tone, aided by the mahogany its back and sides. This sound can then replicated seamlessly through the built in Sigma pre-amp, so you can be guaranteed a perfect sound for any gigging or recording.

Martin Monel Acoustic Guitar Strings

Image
We've recently listed some new strings by Martin that are supposed sound how acoustic guitar strings were back in the day. The Martin Retro range of strings are made from Monel, a Nickel & Copper alloy, they look quite like electric guitar strings and have a vintage appearance. We thought that we would give them a go to see if they did what they said on the packet.


Martin say these strings brings out the unique woody tone from your guitar and that they have complex harmonics. Hear your guitar like you've never heard it before! Sounds great but do they actually do what they say?

Well, after a quick re-string on a Martin Dreadnought Junior, it has to be said we are pretty impressed! These strings are full, balanced, powerful with a stunning tone unlike what we're used to by using either Phosphor Bronze or 80/20 Bronze. And sure enough the harmonics are pretty awesome. Pluck the low E string and just listen to how the note develops... Complex harmonics? Yes. It's pret…

NAMM 2016: DigiTech Trio+ Plus Band Generator & Looper Pedal - Guitarbitz.com

Image
A while back DigiTech released the 'Trio', a guitar pedal that creates a backing track based on the chords you play into it, and we thought it was pretty darn awesome!

Now though, (drum roll please), DigiTech have released a brand new version that's geared up for extra functionality and it even features a looper (something we wished the other one had!).



Before you would play your chord sequence into the Trio and it would generate a drum and bass backing track. Now you can create your backing track AND loop your chord sequence as well so it becomes a fully comprehensive, extremely convincing backing track that's created in seconds! It really is AWESOME!

Whether you're simply playing at home and want to jam along to your own backing music or if you're a pro, playing a show to your fans this magical device really will transform the way you play! Personally, we love it for practicing, when you're trying to write that killer guitar solo you need the backing mus…
