Biography[ edit ] Van Leeuwen has a Dutch surname he has ancestors from the Netherlands and has described himself as a third-generation American. His first big influence in learning how to play rock came through listening to Led Zeppelin records. Playing drums initially, Van Leeuwen sought to imitate Zeppelin drummer, John Bonham , [3] but later switched to guitar and discovered that he had an aptitude for it.

He cites Jimmy Page as a big influence: I would have to say that Jimmy Page was the first influence I had as a guitar player. There were so many textures and different sounds that he got. The riffs that he made were undeniably great. Every one of them. Even the mistakes he made were great.

GIBSON SERIALIZATION. Identifying Gibson instruments by serial number is tricky at best and downright impossible in some cases. The best methods of identifying them is by using a combination of the serial number, the factory order.

Guitarists have their Les Pauls and their Stratocasters, keyboardists have their Hammond organs and their Rhodes pianos, and producers have, among other things, the Roland TR These are iconic pieces of gear, with a distinctive sound and endless utility to artists who know how to wield them. But while the machines are pricy, samples are free, and as an eager young producer-to-be, one of the first things you must do, you are told, is find a good sample library of drum sounds recorded from a real Roland TR This sample library will be an essential piece of your toolkit for years to come.

This writer is deeply thankful for and intrigued by the strange fluke that is this cowbell from Mars. The followed the trajectory of many other now-famous Roland devices of the day. It was intended to be a realistic-sounding alternative to an analog instrument, and in that regard it utterly failed, sending prices plummeting. And then it became timeless and extremely influential—in the case of the , it became the most famous drum machine ever. Rather, in , it sounded completely alien.

Real cowbells are some of the oldest bell-type instruments humans created, dating back more than years. The basic cowbell as we know it today consists of a metal plate folded into a rectangular bell shape, with a clapper in the middle made of either metal or wood. You know what a cowbell sounds like.

The Custom is the guitar he is generally associated with. Gibson has also produced two Billie Joe Armstrong Signature Les Paul Junior models one double cutaway, and one single cutaway as well as a very limited run of signature acoustic guitars. Since his death, Gibson has discontinued all Chet Atkins models and Gretsch has resumed the manufacturing and distribution of the Chet Atkins line. Beck’s fascination with the guitar sprang as much from his interest in Les Paul , the man, as from his love of the guitar itself.

Beck told an interviewer:

The latest and greatest reissue of the original early 50s black guard Tele, replacing the American Vintage ‘ This one has all the black guard era vibe with period correct hardware and pickups, but adds modern features such as pickup switching and the modern 9. It features a solid ash body with gloss nitrocellulose finish, 21 tall vintage fret neck that’s also nitro-finished, chunky ’52 U-shaped maple neck with 9.

The Tele has always been the workhorse guitar in the Fender stable and none more than the butterscotch black guard Strat. It has all the twang you know and love in a Tele and this 9. It is set up with very low action and sounds very alive, even when unplugged. Includes Fender black case and certificate. These guitars already have a great vintage vibe with an authentic looking two-tone sunburst gloss finish, parchment parts, and tinted neck, so the vintage logo is icing on the cake.

Other features include C-shaped maple neck with maple fingerboard and modern 9. Like the early vintage models this guitar also has stacked knobs with a volume and tone on each pot.

Nell’aria elettrica le note di “Provaci ancora, Sim” si ionizzavano, come peraltro accadde altre Volt. Uno sparo improvviso echeggio’ nel locale, facendo volare il cappello di Biswood. Alle sue spalle, un omone fece capolino dall’uscio. Sul petto, scintillava una stella argentata. Sul capo, uno strano copricapo a forma di coppola. Imbracciava un fucile a canne mozze.

All numbers were impressed into the wood and a six digit number assigned, though no particular order was given and some instruments had a letter prefix.

Return to the Main Index. Sometimes there just isn’t enough information on electric instruments and amps to allow them to be properely dated. And many people ask me to try and determine the year of their old amplifier, or to help them with the year of their older off-brand electric guitar. Since I primarily collect amps by Fender, and guitars by Gibson, Fender, Martin, National, Epiphone, Gretsch and Rickenbacker, I really can’t help them with these other less popular brands.

As you have probably noticed, there is plenty of information here to help date the brands that I am interested in. But where does that leave everyone else? Well I’m not one to leave you out in the informational cold, so here’s something that I use quite often in dating amplifiers and electric guitars. It’s called the “source-date code”, and it can help determine the approximate age of an electric instrument by the date its components were manufactured.

Source-Date Codes On American made vintage gear, the pots and speakers provide an excellent opportunity to date a piece of equipment by referencing their “source-date code”. The source-date code found on pots and speakers gives the manufacturer and date roughly when the components were made. It may have been some time before the part was installed at the factory, but it still provides a good approximation of when the gear was made. The source-date code will signify the earliest possible date that the instrument or amp could have been made.

This isn’t going to be exact, but it will give you a “ball-park” age. And remember, even the dates indicated by the pots aren’t that exact.
