New Blackstar ID:Core High Power Series Amps

New to Willis and Moeller Music are the new Blackstar ID:Core High Power series of amps. These two new models take the existing features of the ID:Core 10, 20 and 40 and scale them up from practice amp size to gig ready, gig volume levels. Available with either 100 or 150 watts, both with 2 10 inch guitar speakers. The original amps have full range speakers which function well at practice levels, but with guitar speakers you’ll find a much better live guitar tone. There is also a new 30 second looper built in. Combine this with the new Octaver effect and it makes it easy to record a bass line and then jam over it with multiple guitar tones. Included is a 2 button footswitch that allows for effects switching or looper control. An optional 5 button programmable footswitch can also be added and be combined with the 2 button footswitch to have a wide range of control right at your feet. Want to record? Just plug into your computer and the USB out functions as an audio interface. You can also use the free Insider software to do in depth editing on all of the effects. Truly everything you could need in an amp in once compact, lightweight combo. Stop by and check one out today!

Shred Fest 2013 Recap & Showdown Video

showdown

CLICK PIC TO SEE THE SHOWDOWN!

We’re all about giving musicians some glory here at Willis Music, and one of our most popular annual events is Shred Fest. This year we had 21 guitarists post 60 second videos of themselves “shredding”. The top 7 with the most “likes” came into our store on September 28, were split into 2 groups and played live in our auditorium for a packed house of guitar worshipers. Judging for this portion of the contest was done by 2012 Shred Fest winner Chris Alia and Louisville musician and educator, Brian White. The winners from those groups, Monte Phillips and Cheyenne Powell,  then went head-to-head against each other in hopes of winning a brand new B.C. Rich Flying V guitar. Judging for this portion of the event was based entirely on audience response. At the end of a spectacular guitar battle, Cheyenne Powell of local band Overload walked away the winner. Thanks very much to everyone who played, voted and came out to support musicians who’ve worked incredibly hard on their abilities. 2014′s Shred Fest will be the first to feature a backing track entry video, so start prepping now!
