Sonic Situation ,

Solid state amps.

I heard you Talking with Joe about Orange amps and solid state amps. Well, the Orange CR120 is an amazing solid state amp with incredible cleans and huge distortion. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Jared Denen ,

Love this podcast

This made it in to my normal rotation immediately, great guests and a awesome perspective from Mr. Wong.

I cannot get enough of it.

Mophonic ,

Thoughtfully curated

Cory asks the questions I would hope to ever get a chance to ask artist that I could only dream of to speak with. He’s a spark of light and you can feel the artists respond and reflect to his energy. Loved the Susan Tedeschi and Madison Cunningham episodes.
