THE UFO TONE TAKEOVER! - Our 2018 Mind Charity Official Home of Tone shirt is now available for Pre-Order!

After the brilliant success of the first Mind Charity fundraising shirt, raising a total of £500 for the charity. The brilliant shirt designed by ODFU Clothing went down so well and I received so many requests to release another, so here we are with the 2nd ODFU x HoT Charity shirt.

Continuing the story of our little UFO, it's taking over your home and rig!

Ex-Display price now available on my remaining Titan Guitars Custom Shop KR1!

Ex-Display price now available on my remaining Titan Guitars Custom Shop KR1!

Hi folks! I have this cool Titan Custom Shop KR1 here with an interesting 5 way wired Lollar triple P90 setup on a beautiful celluloid Tort pickguard that I'd love to find a home for. 

I've reduced it's price from £1720 down to £1600 as unfortunately I have noticed a few small marks in the paint finish on the underside of the body. This would have happened during viewings but sadly have only just noticed it, but wanted to be fair on the price in light of this now and offering a great £120 off it's original retail. Titan Guitars have also just announced a price increase for 2018 on the Titan KR1 model, so with this here already it's a great chance to grab one at a lower price.

Home of Tone Record of the Week - Deftones' Diamond Eyes

Home of Tone Record of the Week - Deftones' Diamond Eyes

Deftones were a band that emerged to many in the 'Nu Metal' era around the late 90s/early 00s, with their albums Adrenaline, Around the Fur and White Pony. Their sound, for me anyway, separated them from the pack. Chino's vocal lines following unique melodies over the commanding guitar parts. I loved their sound and were one of the very few bands to stand the test of time through that era without sounded dated or defined by that breakout metal era.

Diamond Eyes, released in 2010 absolutely floored me. Hypnotic guitar parts from guitarist Stephan Carpenter armed with his array of 7 & 8 String guitars (to name a few, Stephan is known for using an array live and in the studio) simply had me hooked from the first listen and I still binge on this record until now. I've had this record in my car solidly for the past few weeks and it's such a good metal record. For me it's so much more than that, which Deftones have the habit of doing!

James.
