I remember my brother who used to be a fan of the heavy metal band,the Metallica back in his college days. I remember how he skipped snacks just to save money enough to buy cassette tapes and how he loudly played them over and over that really irritated me, who prefers soft music.
He was an avid fan of the one of the greatest guitarists of all time none other than Kirk Hammett. Kirk Hammett has been an active musician since 1979 and in his 36 years in the industry he made great contributions and even made collaboration with musical equipment manufacturers. One of which is the kirk hammett 15, a powerful yet portable amplifiers for guitars. It is a combo practice amp with clean and override channels that you can use at home.
If one of my nephews in into guitars, I can consider getting him this equipment to practice on. Who knows, he might be the next Kirk Hammett.
