  • Heard the new Death From Above 1979 Single? Here's how to get that bass tone!

    Posted on July 15, 2014 by Neil Shukla

    It's been 10 years, but Death From Above 1979 is finally releasing a new album in September. The new single 'Trainwreck 1979' has got bass players everywhere salivating over that deliciously dirty bass tone.

    After reading that this crushing distortion is actually achieved by running a cranked high wattage solid state amp through a lower wattage 8x10 cab, a few of us in the guitar department sought out to replicate that tone without having to destroy our speakers! So we experimented with some awesome pedals on our shelves and found that can you achieve the same effect right at your feet!

  • EXCLUSIVE Custom Taylor Brazilian Rosewood Guitars at Cosmo Music!

    Posted on July 9, 2014 by Neil Shukla

    A year to plan and build, and now they are finally here at Cosmo Music. Exclusive, custom Taylor Brazilian Rosewood acoustic guitars. Just one glimpse at the wood and it immediately becomes clear: this is craftsmanship at it's finest.

     
    "Brazilian is the wood that makes a flat top players' heart stop. It is the flat top guitar's royal flush, if you will. In a nutshell, aside from being very beautiful, it is the singing wood par excellence, because there isn't really a wood that has the "just right" combination like it. By just right, I mean to say internal [...]  Read more
