Gear Is Good: Wood Stock, Earthquaker Transport & Satin Walnut

Three pieces.

1. Fodera's Victor Wooten Bass.

Sam came into Bass Club Chicago to get some new strings for his Fodera YinYang standard and he just had to play this Fodera we picked up from Namm 2013. This is the Fodera Victor Wooten Limited, there are only six of these in the world and they are made from the same batch of wood as Vic's!

"From Fodera: The decision to build a Limited Edition of six EXACT replicas of Victor Wooten's original Monarch (Fodera #37) was the culmination of several distinct events. First, as we organized the shop over the past three years we discovered that we had enough Mahogany, Maple, and Indian Rosewood to build six Monarchs from exactly the same stash of woods used to build #37. Second, we still had eight original Fodera / HAZ Preamps (6 for this Limited Edition and two 'just in case'). Third, although we no longer had any New Old Stock (NOS) Schaller Tuning Machines or Bridges, these parts were still made by Schaller in almost exactly the same way as they were in back in 1983 (the only notable difference is that they say 'Made in Germany' rather than 'Made in W. Germany')! Oh yeah, and Joey even had a box of Aluminum knobs from 1983 with enough to provide original, NOS Volume-Volume-Tone knobs.

"With all this in mind, and given our friendship and association with Victor, we set about adding six VW Monarch Limited Editions to our build schedule to be delivered in 2013- our 30th Anniversary year. From the original shop stash of early 1980's woods, to the original, hand-carved body shape, original wooden butterfly logo, original preamp, 3-piece body (on a Dovetail instrument) and hand rubbed Watco oil finish, EVERYTHING about this Limited Edition is as faithful to the original as humanly possible - something that we will never again be able to recreate."

2. Earthquaker Devices Disaster Transport SR Modulated Delay and Reverb.

Joel gets ethereal with the new Disaster Transport SR modulated delay and reverb pedal. This effect has two powerful delays and a reverb packed into one stomp box.


3. Hyundai 43" Console Piano - Satin Walnut.
