Fender Rumble LT25

By | July 1st, 2019|Categories: AV Hub|

Fender’s newest little bass amp is crammed full of sounds designed to inspire you to create new genres and playing styles. Words by Peter Hodgson.

Note: This piece first appeared in Australian Guitar #133Subscribe to our print edition here!


The Rumble LT25 follows on from the LT Stage and Studio amps. In other words, it’s full of presets and effects, it’s designed to do a whole bunch of stufff, and it’s intentionally simple to operate. It’s also small and light – deceptively so, for an amp capable of holding its own in a garage jam alongside drums and guitars. … Read the full article

As One — Original Cast Recording

By | July 1st, 2019|Categories: Stereophile|

What’s the most frequently performed new opera in America at present? It’s Laura Kaminsky’s 2014 chamber opera, As One, whose libretto by Mark Campbell and Kimberly Reed explores the coming out process of its protagonist, Hannah, as a transgender woman.

Samsung CEO admits the Galaxy Fold was released before it was ready

By | July 1st, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

After screen malfunctions caused Samsung to pull the Galaxy Fold days before its official launch, it was unclear how the company failed to predict the foldable phone would fail. 

Months later, Samsung CEO DJ Koh came clean, saying: “It was embarrassing. I pushed it through before it was ready,” according to The Independent

Koh made the comments at a recent meeting with several media outlets – presumably the same roundtable where he nonchalantly name-checked the upcoming Note 10.

“I do admit I missed something on the foldable phone, but we are in the process of recovery,” Koh said at the meeting.… Read the full article
