DAVID ELLEFSON’S APP

David Ellefson, the iconic bassist from legendary metal band Megadeth, just released his latest solo project, which — of all things — is an app. Here’s an excerpt from a review we pulled on Rock Shop, which provides a pretty solid breakdown of Ellefson’s new app:

“The main screen of Rock Shop allows you to select to play with either an electric guitar or a bass guitar. There are three presets for each guitar type. Clean, which plays like a traditional guitar; British, which sounds a bit like 60’s rock guitars in my opinion; and Metal, which sounds like Megadeth ought to. The presets sound pretty good, but if you like to tweak your settings, there are slider adjustments for volume, gain, bass, and treble. Being accustomed to using more controls with my amps, I’d like to see more control in the app, but for beginners this works just fine. The bass setting gives you slider controls for volume, bass, mid-range, and treble. You can also set it for “brite” or limiter sound, or a combination of both.”
