Kyle Gass Signs at Clayton NAMM booth
Yes, it is true! Kyle Gass of Tenacious D / Trainwreck came to the Clayton Booth at NAMM 2010 to do
a signing for all his fans. Hundreds and hundreds of his fans
showed up to meet him and get
an autograph with a line that spaned over 3 aisles! Some fans waited in line over an hour to be one of the
first to meet him. Kyle did not disappoint, and [...]
Byron has just finished a brand new instrumental song entitled “Engines Of Thunder”. Stylistically it’s a “tip-of-the-hat” to the early Satriani & Hendrix vibe when there was strong emphasis on composition and lyrical soloing with catchy hooks and unique twists in the guitar playing.
“Engines Of Thunder” was recorded in Apple Logic Pro X with the Universal Audio Apollo Twin X QUAD using only the UA Marshall JMP 2203 and Marshall Silver Jubilee 2555 plug-in’s for an amazing emulation of the legendary Marshall sound.
These plug-in’s are like recording with Vintage Gear because they deliver dead-on tones of the great [...]

They have ordered Black Raven, several [...]
James Otto’s New Picks
We just got finished with an order for James Otto. He went with a completely different design since he has a new single and album coming out. The new design looks great! I just went over to his myspace to check out his new single, “Since you brought it up”. Like his other songs this one is great, and the lyrics rock! I especially liked the chorus, it’s pretty catchy. Jame’s personally uses our Acetal, Rounded Triangle, 1mm picks. If you [...]
Glasstone Records sent us press kit a few months back, we are in the process of endorsing several of their bands. You should have seen the stack of contracts I had to sign, my hand was aching at the end of it! :). When we get them all back I will take a picture with them all so you can see why, haha. We just got the first contracts back from Neil, Tom and Adam of Shotgun Riot. I think this is [...]
James Otto Concert
In a prior blog posting we mentioned that we recently have started endorsing James Otto. James and his management team were nice enough to let Patty McGrade (Sales Dept. at Clayton, Inc.) and her daughter Kathy go backstage for a Meet & Greet with James at his concert in Schaumburg, Illinois last night (April 16th). James and his team were so accommodating to them and we all really appreciate their kindness. You [...]
We’d like to welcome James Otto as our new featured artist! James cannot be really categorized with a single word. His music has a mix of country and rock and roll that almost anyone can appreciate. Upon reviewing his press kit I took an immediate liking to all of his music, though his song, “Just Got Started Lovin’ You” was already one of my favorite songs. James uses our Acetal Polymer material in the rounded triangle shape.
