Dear readers,

Welcome to the KLOTZ musician & studio update for March!
As always, this issue is packed with the latest news and topics to grab your attention.
Today we have a new KLOTZ the signal chains video where Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, guitar mastermind with Sons of Apollo, shows off his instrument and rig in depth and reveals the tricks he uses to get the perfect sound from his Vigier Custom Doubleneck.
YouTube guitar wizard Paul Davids has also namechecked KLOTZ in his video “10 things every guitarist needs/wants“. He’s listed the KLOTZ TITANIUM with silentPLUG connector as his Number 1! And of course there are lots more tips for gear to make musicians’ lives easier on stage and in the studio and rehearsal room.
This time our DX10 DI box goes to guitar wizard Jon Gomm. His views on our pocket-size box of tricks is the latest in a slew of great reviews from the previous months. Check it out for yourselves!
We hope you enjoy this month’s Newsletter and have as much fun reading it as we had putting it together!

Sons of Apollo: the signal chains

Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal is currently touring Europe with the supergroup Sons of Apollo. The name is enough to make music buffs’ mouths water – after all, the band members are some of the finest musicians on the scene today.
Like Bumblefoot himself, whose impressive CV includes stints with Guns ’n’ Roses and Art of Anarchy. In this video he takes us through his unusual and very individual setup, where KLOTZ TITANIUM cables have a special role to play.

On tour and in the studio, guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal as welll as keyboardist Derek Sherinian from Sons Of Apollo rely on KLOTZ TITANIUM supreme guitar and microphone cables for absolute state-of-the-art sound that’s virtually free from microphonics. To be seen and especially heard on the current "MMXX" Tour.

Jon Gomm and the KLOTZ DX10 passive di-box

Jon Gomm is the man of the hour where percussive finger style for acoustic guitar is concerned. All you hear is Jon Gomm and his guitar – even if it sounds like at least three musicians are playing. His virtuosity is the perfect pair for KLOTZ cables. We brought Jon a KLOTZ DX10 di-box to see if it would meet his high demands for perfect signal transmission.
"The Klotz DX10 gives me the true, unaltered sound of my guitar from a sub-rattling kick to the highest harmonics, it performs in total silence, and unless you happen to own a nuclear warhead I think you'll find it's indestructible."

In just a few weeks you will have the chance to see Jon Gomm live. From April this year his tour starts with gigs in Germany, UK, Poland and Canada: jongomm. com/shows
