Busy week here at the 3 Monkeys shop. Sent out an amp and a custom cabinet to Jacob Petersen (with Steve Miller), a proto Orangutan Jr to Justin Sharbono of Soul Asylum, and an Orangutan with a long tank reverb mod to Jim James of My Morning Jacket.
Our dealer Tommy’s Guitar Shop, sent us a link to this amazing demo by one of their employees David Curtis. David plays all of the instruments heard on the demo. He is one talented musician! Wow, thanks guys.
Brad sat-in with The Roots last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Brad rocked a Sock Monkey 18/12, that he later presented to Jimmy as a gift. Watch the full episode here.
Built up in the midst of preparing for the Nashville Amp Expo, a new smaller/simpler Orangutan combo, code named Orangutan Jr. We covered this one to match Butch’s gold/black themed stage. Look for this to become a permanent model soon (with a new cabinet look) and catch it in action on tour with Butch.
