Welcome back for Episode 4, Chris Van Tassel of J Rocket Audio Designs.  Chris starts by announcing a charitable drive that he is starting for St. Jude's Children's Hospital and then we get into talking gear, covering an amazing amount of ground and learning about product design and development, how things change as company grows and how big a part collaboration plays in Rockett Pedals Designs.  (Hint... A lot.)

We also get into the history of their "Klone" the Archer and learn a little about why this design is so revered.

Sorry about the delay but real life gets in the way sometimes.  We're back with a really fun episode focusing on one of the coolest small guitar companies out there, Ronin Guitars.  John and Izzy were a lot of fun to talk with, in fact we talked for a good hour without recording and I wish I had that on here too!
