#JoBroBassGrooveChallenge

Hey guys! You Might’ve already heard about the #JoBroBassGrooveChallenge by Thaddeus Johnson (@tjmusic21) over on Instagram.

Officially endorsing MC SYSTEMS pedals

So I am really happy to announce that from now on I will be endorsing the Australian boutique pedal manufacturer MC SYSTEMS, a company that doesn’t just produce the same old effects pedals we know but rather has come up with some clever new concepts to make their pedals more flexible …
