A smart boombox for guitarists, the eBand ($399) is one of best
practice tools around. Its recording function is great for rehearsing
solos and crafting song ideas, and you can load mp3 and wav files
into it and then control the pitch and tempo of the imported
songs. It also has a COSM preamp, over 100 effects, a USB
jack for interfacing with your computer, built-in tuner and
metronome, headphone and mic jacks, and over 300
audio-loop backing tracks that you can jam along with.

The Rock-It ($50) is designed to take a signal from an iPod and convert it to vibrations in
a little round plastic module. When you stick said module on any flat surface, it turns it
into a speaker. It really works. Boxes, doors, and trash cans all sounded amazing. But
then I fed an acoustic guitar pickup into it, stuck the vibration pod on that acoustic
(creating a feedback loop), and got infinite sustain! Wow! origaudio.com —Matt Blackett
The Power Attenuator ($399) sounds very
natural, and it also offer three levels of treble
boost compensation to help keep your
tone consistent when using higher levels
of attenuation. The footswitchable
bypass (footswitch included) is a hip
feature, as is the auxiliary jack, which
allows for simultaneous switching of your
amp’s channels or boost function.

Part of the Doyle Von Frankenstein Signature line, the Annihilator ($750 street with case) is a wicked-looking
ax with all mahogany construction and a neck-through-body design. Its Suckerpunch pickup has an aggressive
edge and plenty of output, while the 25.5"-scale (27 fret) neck feels smooth and fast. There’s nothing subtle
about the Annihilator—if Attila the Hun had played in a metal band, he would have wielded this weapon.
