Premier Guitar June 2018: For our cover story this month, we tapped U.K. studio guru and vintage-gear dealer Tony Miln to scour the outlands of outboard gear to examine 20 unusual spring reverbs that promise ultimate ambient power. In our artist-interview section, we talk to Blur’s Britpop legend Graham Coxon, slide master Ry Cooder, Stone Temple Pilots’ Dean and Robert DeLeo, Kittie’s Morgan Lander and Tara McLeod, and Nashville twanger Guthrie Trapp. We also serve up a Forgotten Heroes piece on krautrock icons CAN. In gear reviews, we’ve got a roundup of short-scale basses—Fender’s JMJ Road Worn Mustang, Spector’s Bantam 4, and Supro’s Huntington II—in addition to outings with the Orange Brent Hinds Terror, the PRS Silver Sky, Source Audio’s Ventris reverb, Blackstar’s HT Club MkII, the Cort GB75JH 5-string, Fender’s the Bends compressor, Dusky’s Mandorla, the Lovell Shakey tremolo, Land Devices’ HP-2, the Meris Polymoon, Hü Tonelabs’ Psychlone Jr., and Ampeg’s Opto Comp. In the print edition, we’ve also got full transcriptions of three tunes: Jeff Beck’s “Cause We’ve Ended As Lovers,” Django Reinhardt’s “Honeysuckle Rose,” and Imagine Dragons’ “I’m So Sorry.”
