Korg have announced the launch of a pair of new tuners called the "PitchHawk". These impressive tuners feature a host of innovative features and come in two models, PitchHawk-G for guitar and bass and PitchHawk-U for ukulele.

 

Unlike cheaper tuners, Korg PitchHawk guarantee a level of precision and sensitivity that will help ensure you get the most from your intrument. A new, improved clip design ensures a secure grip and increased durability. PitchHawk tuners also feature a fully adjustable arm and ball joint which provide flexibility and improved ease-of storage for gigging musicians.

 

Korg PitchHawk heralds a new type of readout display which has been designed for optimum visibility even in low-lit conditions such as music venues and bars. A unique and innovative feature lets you know when you are over-tightening the first string which will help minimise pre-gig snappage and having to re-string quickly in difficult conditions. 

 

With a variety of versatile, on-board tuning modes the PitchHawk is destined to set the standard for portable clip-on tuners. When the PitchHawk lands later later this month you know you can find the lowest price but comparing Korg PitchHawk tuner prices at Instrumania.com.

Pioneer, the name behind the worlds most highly regarded DJ equipment, have unveiled details of their new range of PA speaker systems designed to challenge the likes of Funktion One and Turbo Sound for nightclub supremecy.

 

To create the ultimate club sound system, Pioneer partnered with the legendary Gary Stewart of Gary Stewart Audio (GSA), whose sound systems have roused clubbers in the world’s most iconic venues, including Singapore’s Zouk and Club Vertigo in Costa Rica. The team partnered with Powersoft to provide high-performance amps that maximised the potential of the system.

 

Marta Robowsky, Manager at Gary Stewart Audio, explains: “"We wanted to partner with a manufacturer who shared our vision of reproducing the best sound for the club environment. The technological synergy between Pioneer and Gary Stewart Audio will provide the ultimate nightclub sound system.”

 

Pioneer’s Alex Barrand, the sound engineer behind the Ministry of Sound London’s award-winning sound system upgrade in 2008, oversaw the development process. He explains: “We didn’t just want to enter the market; we wanted to be the best in the market. So we gathered the dream team: Pioneer’s pro-Audio R&D expertise combined with GSA and Powersoft’s club system credentials. You have to hear it to believe it.”

 

Pioneer’s flagship speaker series includes two series of passive speakers, GS-WAVE series and XY series, the combination of which is versatile enough to suit a wide variety of installations. GS-WAVE are dance floor stacks with wide dispersion, designed to deliver sonic clarity and high SPL across the whole frequency range.

 

The XY series is more compact in size without compromising sound quality. Designed for use as DJ booth monitors or as PA speakers in smaller rooms, the XY series offers a wide array of rigging options for installation. The whole system is supported by Powersoft K-Series DSP amplifiers, which come with pre-set data to maximise the performance of the speakers.

 

Barrand concludes: “We’re installing the flagship sound system in a number of world-famous clubs in Ibiza and beyond, including a complete club re-fit, which we’ll be announcing in the coming weeks.”

 

Liam Gallagher has revealed that he would rather work at McDonalds than return to working with his brother Noel.

The former Oasis frontman who is currently enjoying success with new band BeadyEye has revealed that, for now at least, the prospect of an Oasis reunion tour is certainly an unlikely prospect.

Since Oasis parted company both brothers have gone on to pursue solo projects but have found it difficult to live up to benchmark set by their previous incarnation. 

BeadyEye are currently gearing up for the release of their second album "Be"

When questioned over the latest album and whether he was nervous about its' reception, Liam stated "I wouldn't put it out if I was nervous. I hope people like it. If they don't they can go f**k themselves.""

Well...it's good to know that even if the band's changed, 20 years on, he's still the same Liam.

 


 

Jon Bon Jovi has revealed that his band will be performing for free at a concert in Madrid next month, due to the country’s financial crisis.


In an interview with Spanish newspaper El Mundo Bon Jovi said that when the band planned their European tour Madrid was left-off the list of venues as they feared the economic crisis would prevent the gig from being sold out.  They decided that they did not want to disappoint the fans, so agreed to perform the concert free of charge. This move by the band enabled tickets for the gig to be sold unusually cheap, with prices ranging from 18 (£15) to 39 (£33) Euros. Despite the initial fears that many Spanish fans would not be able to afford to attend the concert, the tickets have all been sold. 


 

The show will take place in Madrid on the 27th of June.

 

Trent Reznor has revealed that the band have been secretly recording their first music together since ‘The Slip’ was released in 2008.  “I've been less than honest about what I've really been up to lately,” he said in a statement to the press. "For the last year I've been secretly working non-stop with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder on a new, full-length Nine Inch Nails record, which I am happy to say is finished and frankly f**king great."

 

During the band’s hiatus Trent has been involved in various pursuits, including collaborating with Hollywood director David Fincher to produce the scores for hit films The Social Network and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.  This has proved the inspiration for him to get the band back on the road.  “This is the real impetus and motivation behind the decision to assemble a new band and tour again. My forays into film, HTDA and other projects really stimulated me creatively and I decided to focus that energy on taking Nine Inch Nails to a new place. Here we go!' he proclaimed.

 

The new LP will be Nine Inch Nails’ ninth studio album.
