I’d Like To Go On Record And Say…

We’re pretty excited about what we have on the horizon here at Lollar Pickups!

Engineer: "That one was pretty good too, but I think we can get better, let's try another take? 'Mane Event' guitar solo, take 43..."  Lion: "I think we should take a lunch break, you look delicious... I MEAN HUNGRY... you look HUNGRY!"  Engineer: "I think we got everything we need. That's a wrap, everyone! Let's call this one done!"

We’ve Upgraded our in-house recording facilities to offer everything anyone could want in sound clips; more, better, and faster!

 

 

But seriously, it's almost 2018 and we're just NOW getting a computer-based recording setup?!?

Sleep long, sweet prince. You’ve served us well, but your time to rest has come.

In the past, all of our sound clip recordings were made in our employee break room on an old standalone Tascam DP 01 digital Portastudio multitrack recorder that we picked up circa 2005. While the DP 01 was pretty cool way back when “Dubyah” was still in the Oval Office, now days it seems a little… antiquated.

We always love to hear about great guitar players, especially when they are using our pickups! Our Japanese distributor, Zenbu Japan, recently informed us that the legendary Kazumi Watanabe has been spinning many of his burning jazz and fusion lines on a Collings SoCo, complete with Lollar Imperials!

Mr. Watanabe has been one of Japan’s most important and influential guitarists (and composers) since the mid-seventies. He has played and recorded with many of the worlds greatest musicians, and received the prestigious Fumio Nanri Award in 1991. He has also been a visiting professor of music at Senzoku Gakuen College since 1996.

Please enjoy his playing!

Whole Lotta Lollar…

What do you get when you cross Classic Albums Live with The Mighty Zep, with a generous portion of Lollar Imperials throw in? Well, this actually:
