Beyond the usual news, new gear and industry commentary found in every issue, this month's edition is loaded full of features.

After years on the fringe of the UK amp market, German amp manufacturer Hughes & Kettner is back with JHS and ready to make a big impression with its Tubemeister range of miniature tube amps. MI Pro's Jory MacKay headed to the firm's St Wendel HQ to find out what they have planned.

Chord is making another big push into the MI market so we spoke with former Roland and Yamaha sales and marketing expert (and MIRC presenter) Neil McDougall who has been brought on board to help establish the brand at trade and consumer level.

Barnes & Mullins has taken over UK distribution of Dixon Drums and are confident they can take over a serious portion of the market. We caught up with Barnes & Mullins' associate director of marketing, Alex Mew, and Dixon's product and marketing specialist, Tina Hung.

JHS managing director, Dennis Drumm, spoke with us about what to expect at the 17th annual JHS event.

With MI retailers looking for ways to get by in the current economic climate, MI Pro editor-at-large, Gary Cooper, takes a look at the ever-expanding market for secondhand gear.

On top of this all, we've also put together extensive buyer's guides for Ukuleles and Acoustic Drums and accessories.
