Ovation Guitars launch the new Yngwie Malmsteen signature model!

d

Ovation is proud to present two new signature Viper models YM63 & YM68 designed by the true master of neo-classical, metal shred: Yngwie J. Malmsteen. As long time Ovation endorsee, Yngwie has incorporated many Ovation models into his live performances and recordings over the past 25 years – including the stage-friendly Viper.
Yngwies new signature Vipers, models YM68 (steel string) and YM63 (nylon string), feature a solid chambered Mahogany body, 5 piece Mahogany and Maple necks, and preamp circuitry specially designed to deliver natural acoustic tone with absolutely no feedback – even at the most high-level stage volumes.
True to Yngwie's personal playing preferences, the steel string Viper also has a hand scalloped fingerboard which creates less friction between the wood and the string when bending notes or adding vibrato. A light touch is all you need to play fast and articulate riffs with less effort than non-scalloped fretboards.
The new models are available in two color options: 6P – White or RC – Rosso Corsa Red (which happens to match one of Yngwie's favorite Ferrari's).

A message from Yngwie

I want to take a moment in this festive holiday season to say thank you to all of my fans and supporters, it has been an incredible year. I also want to let you know about Jason Becker's upcoming movie, "Not Dead Yet". It is an extremely heartfelt story about him as he rose into fame but was diagnosed with ALS at the age of nineteen. The movie is being made on a very low budget, and I would like to ask you to make donations towards the project.

Yngwie to Unleash the fury on
North America this Fall!

Yngwie Relentless Tour Poster

Malmsteen's first North American tour kicks off in October.

(New York, NY) - It's been a long wait for American and Canadian fans...but come this October guitar legend Yngwie Malmsteen will make his triumphant return to North American stages with a Fall headlining tour. In support of Malmsteen's latest release, RELENTLESS, the trek will kick off on Thursday, October 13th at New York City's Irving Plaza. Please see below for the itinerary, more dates will be announced shortly. Of the upcoming dates, Malmsteen commented, "I am very much looking forward to playing new pieces from RELENTLESS, as well as Malmsteen classics. Fans can expect the unexpected... I raise the bar with every performance I do and this tour will be no different." In other Malmsteen news, baseball fans will soon get a treat as the guitar legend is scheduled to not only perform his explosive version of the National Anthem, but he will also throw out the first pitch at the Florida Marlins home game against the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday, August 6th.

Released late last year, Yngwie Malmsteen's aptly-named latest album, RELENTLESS, contains more than 60 minutes of new material and showcases the guitar great at his best with the signature virtuosity and mind-blowing technical speed for which he has come to be known. The album also features striking vocals from Tim "Ripper" Owens (Judas Priest, Iced Earth), who first collaborated with Malmsteen on 2008's critically-acclaimed PERPETUAL FLAME (Malmsteen's first album for the Rising Force Records label). RELENTLESS has received rave reviews from both critics and fans alike. Malmsteen recently graced the February cover of Guitar Player, with the magazine avowing, "RELENTLESS continues the guitarist's long string of insane, epic and jaw-dropping releases."

For nearly three decades, Grammy-nominated Swedish guitar icon Yngwie Malmsteen has been amazing audiences with dazzling technical speed and ability. Malmsteen's signature style of playing, which combines elements of seemingly disparate styles of music - metal and classical, spawned the now commonplace genres of heavy metal known as "shred guitar" and "neo classical" and earned Malmsteen the title "the Paganini of heavy metal". Malmsteen was the first guitarist to have his own Fender signature guitar model (even before Eric Clapton). He has graced the cover of more than 200 magazines worldwide, has won every guitar award imaginable and to date, has sold millions of records. Time recently named Malmsteen one of the "Top Ten Greatest Electric Guitar Players", an honor he shared with the likes of Les Paul, Jimmy Page and Jimi Hendrix. "Guitar Hero" enthusiasts know they have arrived when they are bestowed with the Yngwie Malmsteen award in the Xbox 360 version of "Guitar Hero 2". The award signifies a 1000+ note streak in succession.

NAMM 2011: Marshall YJM100 Yngwie Malmsteen signature head unleashed

Marshalla NAMM2011

Marshall Amplification is proud to present the Signature YJM100: a 100-watt, valve head that was developed in close conjunction with the legendary Swedish six-string shredder, Yngwie Malmsteen.

The YJM offers the perfect balance of vintage tone and looks alongside modern features which makes the amplifier the perfect players' tool for "plug in and play" recording or live performance.

Malmsteen has been a Marshall devotee from the get-go so this collaboration comes as no surprise to his countless fans. "I can't say enough about my love for the sound, feel and look of the wall of Marshall's. Since I was 10 years old, I've insisted on having them behind me at all times," the guitarist reveals.

"I must have had every amp company in the world ask me to endorse them, over the years. To finally have my own signature Marshall is an honour and this amp is truly a master piece!"

Based on the power and tone of the 'Holy Grail' 1959 Plexi head, the YJM100 offers the ultimate Neo-Classical amp with the following cutting edge features:

1. Footswitchable* Boost with controls for Volume and Gain on the rear panel.
2. Footswitchable* Noise Gate with rear panel Threshold control.
3. Footswitchable* studio quality Digital Reverb with rear panel Level control.
4. Footswitchable* Series FX Loop
5. Half power switch which takes the output power from 100W to 50W when engaged.
6. Built-in, infinitely variable Attenuator control which can take the output stage from 100% to 0.01% and anywhere in-between, while retaining the all-important tone and feel of the all-valve power section. This means the output power can be reduced to a staggering low of 0.05 Watts when in 50W power mode.
7. Valve Failure Circuitry: meaning that if one of the output valves develops a fault, a visual indicator on the rear of the amplifier shows which one is working incorrectly. This "roadie friendly feature" will save valuable time getting the amplifier back up and running again, should a valve failure occur.
8. Self-biasing circuitry to ensure proper power valve operation each time valves are changed.

*NOTE: A four-way Footcontroller (PEDL-00046) comes supplied with the YJM100, facilitating switching of Booster, Gate, Reverb and FX Loop features. This Footcontroller has been designed using Marshall Amplification's patented Stompware Technology, allowing the user to connect it to the amp using a standard 1/4" guitar cable.
