Michael Angelo Batio Clinic @ All Music Inc Sat Oct 27th from 6pm-8pm

Michael Angelo Batio Clinic @ All Music Inc Sat Oct 27th from 6pm-8pm

This will be the 3rd time we at All Music have been gifted with a visit from Michael Batio.

Batio is one of the most technically savvy players on the scene- his instructional video in the early 90's immediately sent me and my friends back to our practice rooms.

His clinics are always laid back and informative- a very good time with a great player.

All Music Inc Is Proud To Welcome Tone Master Hand Crafted Guitar & Bass Pickups

All Music Inc Is Proud To Welcome Tone Master Hand Crafted Guitar & Bass Pickups

We here at All Music are proud to welcome Tone Master pickups to our store. Bobby has been a friend of the store for decades. A vintage enthusiast and tone chaser, we weren't at all surprised when, a few years back, Bobby brought in a 59 PAF repro he had meticulously hand crafted. Of course, we couldn't wait to install it and check it out- we were floored. All of those fantastic PAF sweet mids were right there. Since then, his business has expanded with stunning reproductions of classic pickups. No expense is spared, time or otherwise, in getting the sounds to be identical to the vintage beauty he was inspired by.

Dava Grip Tips Guitar Picks Nylon Gel Delrin Differences In Feel and Tone Review

Dava Grip Tips Guitar Picks Nylon Gel Delrin Differences In Feel and Tone Review

The Grip Tips by Dava came out a while back but have just started to really gain momentum among players. I saw a few demo vids/articles and just wanted to clear up some misinformation that was being put out there.

The combo bag you buy in the store is just the different colors of the Delrin version, that's why a lot of reviewers are saying that the nylon, gel, and delrin all feel exactly the same. It's because all of the picks in the multi-color bag are indeed the same. The nylon and gel versions are sold separately as their own thing.

The nylon version is lime green. It measures to be about 1.25mm thick. It is the softest feeling of the Grip Tip line- meaning it's great for strumming, but not so much for articulate, fast picked passages. It has a great warm tone overall, the warmest of the three versions.

The delrin version is the solid color version(shown in blue). This measures to be about 1.10mm. This has a semi-stiff design. If you move you fingers toward the top of the pick, it will soften up well for strumming. You get a fair amount of control from the delrin(same material Tortex picks are made from) and you can execute some articulate fast picked passages with these. The delrin is my personal favorite because there is almost no string drag from the pick- feels effortless. Still a warm overall pick tone.

The gel version is translucent pinkish-red. Also measures to be 1.10mm. This is the stiffest feeling of the Grip Tips due to the nature of gel. This pick also has the brightest tone of the three. A bit more string drag than the delrin, but the added stiffness makes it the best choice for complex fast lines where pick flex is the enemy and you need the pick to return instantly from an upstroke to a downstroke.

The Grip Tips, with their rubber 'grip' coating, are some of the best picks to come out in quite a while. You should at the very least check them out. We are an authorized Dava dealer and can get you any Dava pick you desire, at the best price. Each of these is available in 6 and 36 packs. The delrins are also available in 144 pick cases.
