Sonomax V4

Canada's Sonomax has an ingenious new line of custom fit in ear monitors. The neat trick is that the end user is the one who sets up the custom fitting. This is done by injecting silicone into a balloon placed inside their ears. After just four minutes, they are left with a uniquely formed set of ear monitors that are to be worn by just one person.

Sonomax custom IEMs should be available across North American retailers this spring, for $199 (dynamic driver) and $299 (dual armature).

So if you like to stick things in your ears, then you should love these.

Misa Kitara

If Tron could have played guitar, this is what it he would have played. The Kitara multi-touch guitar from Misa Digital would look great next to your Light Cycle.

8-inch multi-touch display
MIDI out
Audio out (1.25”)
Headphone out (3.5mm)
Onboard multi-voice audio synthesizer with assignable effects blocks
100+ digital sounds
6 pre-loaded effects
24 frets; 144 notes
Linux operating system

I think I will hold on to my Stratocaster a little longer just to be safe:)

Griffin Stompbox

The iPad can do many things, but now it can be a four switch pedalboard. Griffin Technology is soon to release Stompbox, a pedal controller for iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch.

Studio-quality 4-channel effects pedalboard for use with guitar, bass, and other musical instruments.

1/4" jack accommodates plugs from variable inputs like volume, expression, or wah-wah pedals.

Brings true pedalboard experience to iPad; interfaces with the iShred LIVE app to switch between effects, start and stop practice tracks or metronome, and more.

Heavy-duty dock connector cable links StompBox to iPad or other compatible iOS device.

Nice, now what to do with all of my old pedals?
