Metallica To Emphasize ‘Magnetic’ On Tour

October 10, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Lars Ulrich of MetallicaLars Ulrich of Metallica promises that fans will hear “a lot of new songs” from “Death Magnetic” on the band’s upcoming tour, which begins production rehearsals this coming Monday in San Francisco and kicks off October 21 in Glendale, Ariz.

These new songs are a lot of fun to play,” says Ulrich. “Traditionally I think we’ve been a little conservative when we’ve started off with two songs, three songs (from the new album). We’re going to hit the ground running here. We’re probably gonna learn all of them and play, I hope, at least five a night and probably rotate ’em so we get a lot of new songs in. That’s one thing I’m definite about.”

Metallica is happy to have dates booked as late of August of 2009, will again be playing in the round, though Ulrich says the production will be “a completely different thing than what we’ve done before.” He says that there will be “a big-ass fuckin’ lighting rig above us, and there’s some pretty cool stuff up there. There’ll be some shit that turns on and off and some shit that blows up… the usual stuff.”

Ulrich says the band is also similarly enthused about the reception to “Death Magnetic,” Metallica’s first set of new material since 2003’s “St. Anger.” The album topped The Billboard 200 for three consecutive weeks and has sold a million copies already in the U.S. and 2.5 million around the world.

It’s just an overwhelming, positive thing,” Ulrich says. “You couldn’t have told me a month ago or six months ago that we would have a record that would be this well-received. It seems like it’s so universal this time and it’s all over the world and everybody’s so into it on so many different levels–the fans, press, the peers… everybody.”

I’m a little overwhelmed, humbled… and certainly appreciative. When you put out a record twice a decade, which is kind of what we find ourselves doing these days, you bask in it a little bit.”

Of course you are Lars, you’re selling lots of albums and have shows booked into August 2009. Glad the album is a success.

HIWATT Custom 400 Bass Head

September 12, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Robert Trujillo Hiwatt 400 custom bass ampWhen Robert Trujillo (Metallica) wants to make noise, he plugs into his HIWATT amp.

With that comment, the rest of this article could be left unsaid, and you could rest assured that HIWATT makes excellent quality bass amplifiers.

Of course, that would be letting the uninitiated readers down, wouldn’t it?

The HIWATT Custom 400 bass amplifier head unit is constructed using the same timeless technique as all other fare which bears the HIWATT nameplate: completely hand-built utilizing military specific point-to-point wiring, giving you nothing but purely awesome tonality.

The HIWATT Custom 400 is a relatively simple machine on the surface. It features two inputs, normal and brilliant, with separate volume controls for each channel, your standard 3-band EQ with presence control, and a master volume.

And of course, it couldn’t truly be called a ‘HIWATT’ amp without packing a brutal 400-watts of all-tube power, now could it?

The Custom 400 is built to the same specifications as the DR201 and the DR405, but the Custom 400 varies in that it utilizes six KT-88 tubes in the power section, four ECC-83’s in the preamps with one ECC-81, and Partridge transformers. It also features adjustable output impedance (4, 8, or 16 ohms).

If you are looking for warm bass tones and enough power for The Who, check out the HIWATT Custom 400 bass amp heads.
