Union Guitars is proud to announce that we are now a stockist of Eminence Speakers!  (Western Australia's ONLY stockist.) Eminence have a huge range of speakers with a variety of tones to suit every player's style, rig and tonal nuances.  They are ALL made in the USA and are priced very affordably.  Check out the range in-stock, here.

 

 

Here at Union Guitars and Amplifiers our mission is to help you achieve that awesome, inspiring, breath-taking guitar tone you've always sought for.  We do this by producing world class guitars, boutique tube amplifiers, vintage style FX pedals and custom technology.

If you already own a beloved tone machine we can tweak it to perfection for you.  (Everyone plays better when their instrument is properly set up and maintained.)  We modify and repair all brands of tube amplifiers, electric guitars, acoustic guitars and bass guitars.   We are an agent for Brierley Guitar Pickups (and an authorised installer) and sell Celestion speakers at stellar prices.  We also sell parts, tubes, accessories and strings.

We are now a proud agent and authorised installer of Brierley Guitar Pickups

Celestion Speakers Here!

All our products are hand-built by humans to the highest standards from the highest quality components.  (We offer a 5 year warranty on all custom guitars and a 10 year warranty on amplifiers!)  Everything is built for maximum tone and playability.  This costs a little more but the results are well worth it.  (You gearheads know what I'm talking about!)

Photo's and sound samples are being added all the time so keep checking back for interesting new stuff.  We hope to offer online ordering very soon, too, but in the meantime you can contact me by phone or email if there's anything you're interested in, or if you just want to chat about ways you can sound and play better.

So come with us on a journey to tone town 






Regards,


Dave Fyffe

Price Review 

Hi Guys & Gals,

It's with a heavy heart indeed that I must review my current prices.  The exchange rate for the Aussie Dollar has not been kind for a long while now, and shipping costs continue to rise, so I must take action or take financial losses.  Celestion prices have been updated today.  Strings and accessories in the workshop are being re-priced as I write this (they don't appear on the website.)  Pedal prices will remain as listed until current parts/materials are exhausted (so be quick).  Custom cabinet prices will be reviewed very soon.

Amp pricing is under review - always best to call for exact pricing anyway, as amp spec's are often different for every build.

Let me take the opportunity to thank you all for your support and your business, as it is much appreciated.  Rest assured I intend to remain in business, doing what I love and helping you to do what you love, and will do my utmost to keep prices as competitive as possible.

Keep on rockin' in the free world.  Peace out.

What's New? 

Hi guys and girls of tone town.  

Let me begin by apologising profusely for not blogging for such a long time!  I humbly ask your forgiveness, but it is due to the massive workload I've been under lately. Still holding down 4 gigs week and FULL time in the workshop is pretty demanding.  

Anyway, I have been working on lots of interesting instruments - both repairs and new builds - and have heaps of new products coming on line.  

We now stock Celestion speakers - so you can get them from us at VERY competitive prices.  Email the models you're after for pricing at this point, but I hope to revamp the store very shortly with comprehensive online ordering and payments.

There are heaps more pedals available now, so I hope to put pics and samples up real soon, along with 2 new amp models (and a third one not far behind).

Lastly, I'm doing some lovely custom guitars at the moment, but once they're done I will be offering a whole new range of gorgeous new models sporting lots of inlays, purfling, specialty timbers and nitro finishes.

For some random pic's of what I've been up to follow this link  -  what's new?

Like the Beatles said "...it's getting better all the time."

New Edition D45 

Hi Toneseekers,

Lovers of amp porn can check out the pics of the New Edition D45
in the Amplifier section.  Available in a range of coverings - this one
is finished in sexy red tolex with cream knobs :-)

Video demo coming soon.


Oooooh, yeeeaaah!

MORE, More, more ... 

Hello lovers of tone,

Another new addition to the FX pedal line-up.  Introducing the
Grand Canyon Analog Echo Emulator.  It is a sexy, smart digital
delay with clever modifications that make it sound exactly like
a classic analog model.  That is not an exaggeration...it has to be
heard to be believed.  Drop in to check one out or go to the sound
samples for Grand Canyon
to get a little taste.  Mmm, yummy!



Search is over tone junkies.

Funk-a-rama 

Hey Dudes,

Check out the new Wowser pedal on the FX pedals page.  It's an
envelope filter (also known as an auto-wah).  These give a nice
subtle wah effect that is sensitive to pick intensity.  Great for funk
styles and really well suited to bass guitar.  More goodies coming
soon...


Wucka, wucka, waaah

Online Store 

Friends, Rockers, Country-music men..... Lend me your ears!


Well, I've been flat-out like the proverbial lizard lately!  I'm working hard
- and am almost ready to launch the online store. 

You'll be able to use paypal or credit card and items will be shipped
direct to your door.

I will be kicking off with many accessories and smaller products
(custom cables, FX pedals, strings, etc) and most of the amp and
speaker cab line up will be available for order by deposit.  No guitars
at this stage - but won't be too long I hope.

Thanks to all the people signing up to the mailing list - I will be running
a competition as a reward exclusively for you guys very soon - so stay
tuned.  If you wanna be in on this action be sure to sign up soon!

If you have any particular items or products you'd like to see available
on my site then drop me a line and I will see what I can do.

SPECIAL NOTE:  If you live in the Eastern Suburbs or Hills Area of Perth 
have you ever found yourself at a gig or jam session on a weekend and
realised that you shoulda bought strings? Aargh!!!  Well, just feel free
to give me a call - and if I am around the shop (which I nearly always am!)
you can drop by and I will be happy to sort you out.  I carry a wide range
of gauges for electric, acoustic, classical and even bass - so just call.

How's that for service? 




Keep on rockin' me baby,


D.Fy

Pedals 

Hi toneseekers,


I am very happy to let you guys know that a range of vintage style
FX pedals will soon be finished and available for purchase.  The
first one is shipping as I write this post (go to the TECHNOLOGY
pages to view pics.)  I will soon upload more pics, prices and
sound samples as each one comes on-line.

Feel the tone,


D.Fy

YouTube Video - Giant Killer 

Hi Guys,

I've uploaded a demo of the Giant Killer amp head onto YouTube.

You can check it out right here, and don't forget to go to the
Giant Killer page in the Amplifier section for more sexy pix.


Seek the tone,


D.Fy

At Last! 


Welcome to my humble website.   

I'm really glad you took the time to drop by and I hope you saw something
you liked. Let me know what you think via the emailer, or drop a comment
here on the blog-space.

It has taken me ages to get this far but I've finally made a start! So please
be patient and check back often because I'm uploading new stuff everyday.

My main aim is to continue to improve my skills in the arts of instrument
making and repairs, and to offer those services to you at a fair price. But
also, to entertain you with photo's, links, sound samples and information,
too.

And I want to help those few of us that appreciate the high art that great
guitars and fine amps represent, to have interaction with one another
and share the joy of that.

That was deep....maybe, too deep for 1am on a Wednesday.....but I think
you get where I'm coming from.

Love the tone,

D.Fy
