Red Dog Music Awards: Best of 2013
Now we’re in the closing moments of the year, it seems like a good time to reflect back on the gear that rocked our world in 2013! Let us proudly present…
the Red Dog Music Awards: Best of 2013!
Phil Hopwood: This guitar is absolutely beautiful. It’s a brand-new reissue of a 1965 design made famous by Elvis Presley. At least, I think Elvis used one. He might not have, though. But if he didn’t, then he definitely should have!
Kirsten Adamson: I love the new Bass Station! It’s really affordable, it’s pretty straight-forward to use for an analogue synth and – best of all – it sounds like the 1980’s in a box!
Graeme Urquhart: This new synth from Elektron is really fantastic. It combines the power and versatility of Elektron’s digital sequencers with a polyphonic, dynamic analogue sound engine! Try it!
Andy McKay: It’s a Moog for under a grand. Just buy it!
Will Baker: This is a easy, affordable and reliable way of integrating samples into your live set. No more worrying about whether you’ve got the right cable for your iPod!
Sheenagh Murray: Forget downtuning your guitar or playing a 7-string, THIS is what you need! Heavier than heavy!
Niall Barlow: It’s not really a bass and it’s not quite a guitar, but I totally love it! It makes you sound like nothing else.
Alex Marten: It’s a really handy, compact size and is nice and comfy to sit around with. It’s surprisingly loud for its size though, just like my little boys!
Guy Perchard: KORG have been bang-on with their sound-toys this year. The whole Volca range is mind-blowingly good for its price, but the Beats takes the bacon. Superfun analogue nonsense FOREVER for the price of one night in a Premier Inn. DONE!
Mike Fletcher: The German legends are better known for setting the standards when with their incredible microphones, but this year they’ve raised the bar with their outrageously good studio monitors.
Dave Tynan: This amazing combo lets you have that massive, saturated Orange tone without breaking the bank. Compared to other amps of the same power it’s also pretty light, too!
Dave Gardner: This awesome stage keyboard has it all! It’s packed full of classic sounds, an analogue-modelling synth, dedicated drawbar organ controls, a Loop Station and out-of-this-world effects.
Dickie Dutnall: What’s not to love? This ever-so-slightly-smaller reissue of one of KORG’s most sought-after analogue synthesizers now has MIDI functionality to make it the ultimate noise-maker for the stage and studio.
Gavin Wiltshire: I love that this interface has enough ins and outs to make it useful in a small/medium studio straight out of the box, but it can also be upgraded with extra pre-amps to make it an affordable recording powerhouse.
Roy Brockington: The industry-standard DAW software now has an updated audio engine for faster bouncing and runs in 64-bit, allowing access to colossal amounts of RAM!
