  • Staff Picks: Danelectro/Silvertone

    20140710-_DSC0997

    These are the type of pieces we get excited about at Main Drag Music. Yes we love our vintage Fender's and Gibson's, but you'll find a Les Paul and Deluxe Reverb in your standard studio. THIS is the sound of the people! Branded for the department-store-glory-days of the 60's, these "consumer" pieces don't fall short of any other American made gear of the day. Packed with tone and mojo that you won't find in your usual suspects, these are a must have for any collection big or small.

    We are fortunate to have a modest collection of these pieces on our sales floor right now looking to go to a loving home. Check out our offerings below.

  • Maestro - A Sound Odyssey

    Before Boss, Electro-Harmonix, MXR and guitar effect pedals as we know it today, there was Maestro. The brand was under the Gibson family and is responsible for the first guitar "stomp box" known as the FZ-1 Fuzz Tone. They subcontracted to different makers to create a wide array of products including Tom Oberheim's creation of the PS-1 Phase Shifter.

    ma1973

    Effects for guitar, effects for synths, effects for guitars that turned the sounds into synths, they made just about every cool effect you could think of, including a rotary speaker that looks like the inspiration for the Bose home iPod dock (pictured above). We are fortunate to have a couple of Maestro's awesome products at the store right now, all which have stood the test of time.
