Gretsch LTD Penguin Pictures
by Joseph Avery-North
In April, 2020, Gretsch released a limited edition of the Gretsch Penguin. I ordered one, I’ve had it for almost a year now, and the “honeymoon phase” shows no sign of abating. I simply love my Penguin. I wrote a review about it last year and stand by everything I said. For me, for my music, nothing beats a Gretsch.
I’ve been trying to teach myself the esoteric arts of mixing and mastering lately so I can start releasing music (something I haven’t done for years) and so I haven’t been writing much lately (music or articles) but sometimes inspiration comes from the simplest things – like the new area rugs my wife and I ordered arriving over the weekend.
One of those rugs was for my office/studio and it inspired me to take some pictures, play with contrast, exposure, saturation, etc. I’m a musician and a writer, not a photographer or engineer or video editor so I’m having to teach myself all those fun tech things… Yes, Winterwind Productions could definitely do with someone more technically inclined than myself to lend a hand but until we have one… I muddle on and come up with pictures like these…
