Hammond-Suzuki G37 And G27 Guitar Leslies shipping

Hammond-Suzuki USA today shipped the first production units of their G37 and G27 Leslie speakers designed especially for the guitar. Hammond executive VP Dennis Capiga said “Today marks the fulfillment of a dream, and several years of hard work. I can’t wait to hear the music guitarists will make with our baby.”

The G37/G27 is roughly one third the size and weight of a traditional keyboard Leslie Speaker, but has many of the same components. Unlike the last Leslie designed for guitar in the late 60’s; the G37 and G27 have a ‘real’ horn spinning on the top and the traditional Leslie rotor on the bottom. A 100 watt channel-switching guitar amp with “tube pre” powers the G37 while the G27 is powered by the user’s own amp.
MAP pricing for the G37 is $1495.00, and the G27 is $1325.00.

Just saw this one on Blabbermouth.net.

Former KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick has scheduled the following in-store appearances/clinics in Australia in conjunction with Allans Music.

April 01 – Melbourne – 7 p.m. (soundcheck 5 p.m.)
April 02 – Brisbane – 6:30 p.m. (soundcheck 4:30 p.m.)
April 03 – Adelaide – 7 p.m. (soundcheck 5 p.m.)
April 04 – Sydney – 5 p.m. (soundcheck 3 p.m.)

Kulick has been back in the studio working on his next solo CD, tentatively titled “BK3”. The album will feature guest appearances by a number of acclaimed rock and heavy metal musicians, including TOTO’s Steve Lukather, John Corabi (MÖTLEY CRÜE, UNION, RATT, ESP), Gene Simmons (KISS) and Tobias Sammet (EDGUY, AVANTASIA).

Cool! I haven’t been to a Kulick clinic before, but I hear they’re quite worthwhile, even for non-guitarists who are just going because he was in KISS.
