Joe Perry of Aerosmith – Here is a quick pic of our little tech area tucked away behind the stage in the Springfield MA arena. Back in 2015 I designed a custom circuit for Joe, which also included Custom Designed Mercury Magnetics Transformers & we installed this into (2) Marshall JCM800 2203x Reissue amps.

Fast forward - Joe wanted some additional control over the low end & lower midrange frequencies. We designed & installed 2 new additional control features effectively allowing Joe to be able to control how much low end & lower mids he wants in his tone. As per his request we installed them on the front panel of the amps for easy access.

Pictured in this photo is an older vintage Super PA amp that we have Modified in the past. It was getting a retube & we also have some more work we are doing (more to follow shortly). In addition to that we retubed & biased some amps, performed work on others as well as the sweetening up the rig over all.

Note – While there is a Variac that can be seen in this photo it is for tech work only. IE: There are no Variacs in Joe Perry’s or Brad Whitford’s rigs.

Johnny Stachela of the Allman Betts Band - Been on the road with this blues rock powerhouse working on & Modding vintage Fender Black Face Super Reverbs & Concerts! Just finished up a ‘63 Concert complete with Oxford speakers for slide virtuoso Mr Johnny Stachela just before show time in Rochester NY. The amp sounds killer, plays effortlessly & you can lean in as notes swell into natural feedback.

The new full length album ‘Down To The River’ was recorded live at Muscles Shoals & yesterday charted at #1 on iTunes rock charts.

Many thanks to the band’s tech Aldynne ‘Aldy’ Glanton for taking the photo & to the entire band & crew for their hospitality! Don’t forget to do a kindness for someone along the way - Trace Davis, President / Founder

Back in the Shop from Nashville - We traveled to Nashville to work with Australian based band Airbourne in the legendary RCA Recording Studio A where they are currently recording their next record with producer Dave Cobb. We brought several amps with us & worked on several other amps. Having been present for some writing & arranging as well as having heard a track that they cut while playing live off the studio floor, I have to say that tones were nothing short of amazing!

I would like to send out a special thanks to band & all involved; Joel O'Keeffe (guitarist, singer), Harri Harrison (guitarist), Ryan O'Keeffe (drums), Justin Street (bassist), Dave Cobb (Producer), Toby Hulbert (engineer), Colin Lot (Assistance Engineer), Gregg Donovan & Don Friedricksen. It was great to see & be involved in such a strong & positive work ethic!

A very special thanks to those who were kind enough to meet with us, have lunch or dinner with us or coffee; David Graef, Scott Appleton, Aidan Mullen, Steve Burdick, Steve Davis, Jimmy Freck & Matt at Metal Road Cases, all at Artisan Guitars in Franklin TN, Carters Vintage Music, Vintage King, Rumble Seat Music, British Audio Service & Music, Sweetwater Music & Michelangelo's Restaurant in Cleveland.

Thanks so very much & back to soldering I go! Don't forget to do a kindness for someone along the way & feel free to share as you like. - Trace Davis, President / Founder

A quick pic of Mike Piera of ‘Analog Man’ Effect Pedals & I - My travels recently took me to CT where I was fortunate enough to be invited to visit Analog Man’s facility. Mike & I got started in the business around the same. We have run in the same circles but this was the first time we were able to meet in person. Aside from seeing all the great products Mike has designed he also an amazing collection of vintage pedals & amps. If you are a tone geek & fortunate enough to get a tour make sure you check them out. Mike, it was great to meet a fellow tone hound & talk tone. There’s not many I get to talk with on that level & it was a blast! A big thanks to you & your staff for the amazing hospitality! - Trace Davis, Founder / President Voodoo Amps. #analogman #mikepiera #voodooamps #tracedavis
