Boss Pedals Reviewed: BD-2w, OD-1X and TE-2

The Japanese company Boss has created the most historically significant collection of compact (“stompbox”) guitar pedals and continues to build quality electronic products for modern musicians. Starting in 1977 with the iconic (and orange-colored) DS-1 distortion pedal, Boss has created and released over a hundred pedal models. See that “wall of pedals”? That picture was taken by yours truly at the NAMM 2014 conference.  Lots of them are still sold worldwide and can be heard on recordings by famous artists. I had the privilege of trying three of the most recent innovative guitar pedals by Boss in the course of the last few weeks. Two gain-based pedals, and an echo (or reverb) model. What a treat!

Review: Eurocom Electra 3 gaming laptop

Lately I’ve been on a bit of a kick with gaming laptops. They’ve really been coming in to their own as of late. There are so many great options and people’s interest in having enough PC muscle to game, in a laptop form factor is definitely increasing. For most people something like an Ultrabook or Chromebook is basic enough to get work done day to day, but when you want to do multimedia creation, or enjoy the latest PC games without having to sacrifice on graphics or performance, a gaming PC is tough to beat. If you can get the power of a gaming PC with the mobility of a laptop you’ll have something that has been the dream of many gamers for years. These days it’s not that farfetched and you have a few options. The latest model I’ve looked at is the Electra 3 from Eurocom. I’ve been a big fan of Eurocom’s laptops in the past so I was curious if this latest model would continue their winning streak.
