Great deals on musical instruments

Members of Duff McKagan's Loaded have expressed their pleasure after trying out new Yamaha guitars.

McKagan and guitarist Mike Squires played the new Yamaha A series acoustic while bass player Jeff Rouse joined in with his BB2024X in a recent performance at an intimate industry showcase at the SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas.

Squires said he was especially impressed with his new musical instrument when he took to the stage with it.

"I have never played an acoustic like this that plays like an electric before ... it honestly caught me off-guard," he stated.

The musician remarked that he considers the Yamaha A series acoustic to be an improvement on the Hummingbird he was using before.

According to the Yamaha Download site, the guitar range will be made available to musicians living in the UK and Ireland in the near future, although no official release date was given.

A statement from the company has said the instruments are designed to perform to a high standard, whether being used in the studio or on stage.

Thousands of hours of development work went into their creation, with the models managing to combine traditional values with the latest technology.
