A long-time Texas Tone® Amp enthusist, Spooky of Spellgrinder is multi-faceted guitarist, well versed in many styles, including the Metal with a Glam edge of Spellgrinder. Dubbed “American Street Metal”, SPELLGRINDER are bringing back the times where danger, desire, and drama elevated the music to epic proportions. Spooky loves his Texas Tone® 30 tube amp. While he usually reserves the Texas Tone 30 for tasty rock n’ roll, he used it for the lead parts on ‘Grimoire’, along with a Dime Distortion pedal. Spooky says, "If you’re into sweeeeeet TONE, check out Texas Tone."

Make no mistake! Ellis Bullard makes Good-time, Honky Tonk music! He calls it True Blue Honky Tonk music, and we concur. He and his band play old school Texas dance hall music. He loves his Texas Tone® 12 tube amp so much that he commissioned his own higher output version the "EB-22". Another Fender® Princeton Reverb convert, Ellis Bullard Music will prove that Honky Tonk Ain't Noise Pollution.

The Traveling Ones

Justin Ahmanson of the The Traveling Ones, an Americana band from Nashville, TN, commissoned the Ahmanson Special to help him pull his signature soulfufl slide tones with his Gibson SG at lower stage volumes. He and Emily called it Amazing tone! and Tone for days! They write and play their own material, featuring tight vocals and heartfelt music.
