Instagram & Tumblr

Hey Folks!

Lately, We have been using Instagram & Tumblr for some of our off-the-cuff, Blog-like content.  You can follow us here:



We post deals on used stuff, new product announcements and links to music we love up there.  I kinda like the format of Instagram & Tumblr, maybe you will too.



Brian Duguay's Detailed Bio



I met Brian awhile ago due to a common interest in Wacky guitar pedals.  It was to be a most fortuitous meeting, as it led to our partnership in building the official Pre-built B.Y.O.C Guitar Effects Pedals.  Brian is a very talented electronics tech.  His build quality is ridiculously clean.  When you examine his pedal guts, it appears that there is hardly a millimeter of extraneous wire, ensuring that you get every last drop of tone out of your rig. :-)

Mountain biking addiction - The Archives

What seems like a very long time ago, I was a half decent athlete.  As a youngster, I played enormous amounts of Rep. team Hockey (mostly AA) and Rep. team basketball in addition to High School basketball.  Hell, our high school Basketball schedule rivaled the NBA schedule.  One year I played 68 games.

Ones that Got Away!!!

Here are a few of my favourite things that i have parted with over the years.  In other words, here is the regrets section :(

Earl_1.jpg (51139 bytes)I sold my Custom-made Templeton Texas Twister Combo Amp (John names them instead of serial #'ing them, cool eh!!!) to one of my favourite customers recently.  At least I know he went to a good home.  

My NFS Favourite Things

Here are a few of my favourite things.   Things I will probably never part with...unless of course, you tempt me with trade fodder that i cannot possibly resist :-)

Although, I have been selling off a great deal of my gear recently, I still have tons of old pedals, guitars and amps.

Meeting U.K. Punk Rock royalty

A real highlight for me was getting to meet Buzzcocks at their last Toronto show.  We had backstage access courtesy of Mike Robinson from Myrareguitars.com.  Mike has been supplying the guys with some Eastwood guitars recently.  Pete has been using the Ultra GP and Steve uses a P90 special.

Meeting U.S. Punk Rock royalty

I had the opportunity a few years ago to meet and hang out in the studio with Rock and Roll Legend, Sylvain Sylvain of the New York Dolls the last time he was in Hamilton.  Heck, I even sold him a TV yellow Tokai Les Paul Jr. which he ended up using on the session and the rest of his tour.  He was the coolest, most down to earth guy and it was an extraordinary pleasure to meet him. definitely, try to catch him on tour.  Without the Dolls, there really would never have been Punk rock.  As far as I am concerned, Syl and the Dolls should be inducted into the rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

We are very picky about the product lines we carry here.  They must have great tone, stellar reliability and the right vibe.  Thus far, We are very impressed by all of the manufacturers we deal with .  In addition, the manufacturers we carry all have one big thing in common:  They are all Super-creative People that are fun and easy to deal with!
