Here at Sioux Guitars, we are fun loving, and we focus on working hard at bring you the best effects, amps, pomade, swag, and other lifestyle products.  It’s often unwise to mix business and politics but we have been disturbed by the misogyny that seems to be on the rise. 

One of the first lessons I remember my dad teaching me, was the first time I had seen violence. I was maybe 4 and we were at a truck stop eating breakfast and a guy came in, yelling at the waitress and smacked her. My dad got up and drug the guy to the parking lot and beat the shit out of him. I was standing on the seat of the booth watching my dad hit this guy over and over. When he was done and headed back into the truckstop, I sat down and stared at my eggs. My dad sat down and reached over and pulled out some napkins and wiped the blood off of his knuckles. I couldn’t look at him but I felt him looking at me. He told me, “if I ever hear about you hitting a woman, I’m gonna beat you just like I beat that man.” That lesson has never been ignored or forgotten.

Hitting women I think is a male problem because not enough men tell their sons and other men that it’s never acceptable and there is never a reason. I could never defend anyone who would choose to hit a woman. I was taught that if you want to show a woman that you are strong, support her, if you want to show a woman you’re tough be there for her to depend on, and if you want to show a woman you’re brave, stand up for her.

Relationships are like how water finds it’s own level.  You are going to attract and be attracted to someone who’s as healthy as you.  Hell, even Hitler had a girlfriend.  If you’re not attracting the kind of woman you want, you need to look at yourself.  What do you have to offer?  Maybe if you focus on yourself and get your ducks in a row then you will be attracting the type of woman you want.  Our Sioux Guitars Suzies, who shoot our pin-up photos, each one is an amazing, smart, driven, ambitious, and beautiful woman, and not one of them has time for children hiding in the bodies of men.

Finding your tone

Looking for killer tone? Often overlooked is the one piece that actually delivers tone, your speakers. Over the years people have been seeking deeper, fuller tones and have sided with heavier gauge strings, drop tunings, 7 and 8 string guitars, baritones, etc., all while continuing to insist on the traditional 4-12” cabinet made famous in the late 60’s from a British builder that uses speakers designed for mid-range punch.

Let’s think about this. If your speakers are designed for mid-range sound, how do you suppose you’re going to get a full bodied sound out of it? If you want a fuller sound, then the cleanest and best way is to use a speaker designed for full body sound and not just mid-range. The other important factor is the size of your cabinet. In building a sealed speaker cabinet the most important factor is to match the air volume that cabinet holds with a speaker or speakers that can be like Goldilocks, not too big, not too small, but just right.

Here at Sioux Guitars, we’re willing to look past tradition and find the right speaker solutions for every players’ situation. We are big fans of 4-10” cabs and really love the sound of a 1-15” or 2-15”. In searching for tone, don’t just assume that your old 4-12” cab is doing you service while you switch heads, effects, guitars, strings, pickups, etc.

Wreckless Eric said this today. “I used the delay pedal on a recording session today with our side project, the Schoemer Formation. Got a lot of compliments! Telecaster - Dakota County delay - Fender Princeton - it sounded huge!”  Love hearing that from a guy who writes songs like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KgcAxjbiyY
