One of our favorite builders out there are the good folks at Dwarfcraft. We really wanted to do an interview with them, but we didn’t want to rehash the same questions in text version that had been done a million times before. So, we asked ‘your good friend Aen’ if he would be willing to answer the questions in his favorite medium — VIDEO. This spawned the Video Interview – or Vidinterview – idea...

Sub Octave Bass | Red Witch Factotum

Some of the best things come out of New Zealand. The inventor of Bungy Jumping – Alan John Hackett – hails from New Zealand as does Sir Edmund Hillary, the guy who was the first to summit Mount Everest.

You know what the world needs more of? Bass pedals. I haven’t actually counted or anything, but I have been working around pedals for some time now and I’m going to hazard a guess that there are way more guitar pedals then there are bass pedals. I’m talking bass specific pedals here folks. Or Basspecifc for short. I understand all the holes are the same and that there’s nothing holding those with 4 from...
