The Taurus StompHead Revolution Starts Now

We’re are always looking for the next BIG thing, the new trend, THE hot product. Whatever you like to call it, it’s out there waiting to be discovered. After putting together our shared notes from the NAMM show we realized that we might already have that product!

The StompHead from Taurus, the originator’s of the new “floor amps” category, breaks the “where to put your amp rule” and has started what we believe will become an industry leading revolution. The advantages of having your amp where you can see it and control it are obvious and coupled with our stomp design completely upends conventional thinking. Never before have guitar players had this much control of their sound in such a small, light and portable package.

The Revolution starts now!

Osiamo, the company that has forwarded the micro pedal revolution into the collective musical consciousness, is now championing the StompHead.

Randall Amps and BluGuitars have already responded and introduced their own take on the genre. And there is a rumor that TC Electronics (always late to the party) is about to jump on the band wagon as well.

The SIMPLE Reasons why you need a StompHead from Taurus.

  • Small. Easy to fit next to your pedal board on stage.
  • Ingenious. Proprietary design includes tube and tube modeled power section.
  • Mobile. Easy to pack for Fly dates or gigs around town!
  • Powerful. And Loud. Up to 70 Watts of power!
  • Light. Won’t break your back.
  • Ergonomic. Your tone at your feet, always.

Oh, and we saved possibly the best reason reason for last : The StompHead won’t break  your bank account. Starting at only $399 for our 1.BL on up to our Flagship 4.SL and 4.HG that both crank out an amazing 70 watts of tube power while boasting tons of professional and studio class features like line out with speaker sim, voltage selector  (115V / 230V), channel switching, effects loops, power brake to 40 watts, cabinet impedance selector, and the list goes on…

We think you’ll find in the Taurus StompHead just what you’re looking for.

5 Questions with Stew Cutler


1) For those not familiar tell us a bit about your career?

I am guitarist / recording artist living in New York.  I have 5 CDs out either on the Fountainbleu or Naim labels- the last recording, “After Hours”,  I released independently. I have played a lot Blues, Soul, Jazz and Gospel music with a wide variety of artists. I have been fortunate to have been able to work and travel as much as I have in my career.

2) What do you see coming up for the future of music?

As for what I see in the future in music- I guess Stew Cutler at Montreux Jazz Clubthere is already a bit of a divide between the “product” that gets churned out by the major record companies, some of which is great, but a lot is nonsense – and actual heartfelt music which will find its own audience. Kinda like fast food or factory farmed food, which gets pushed on us versus organic food which people want and have searched out to the point that organic and non GMO foods have become an industry on their own.

3) What role has music education played in your life?

As far as my own music education I am a self taught musician. I did have many people help me in an informal way, notably guitarist James Clark, but there have been many others. If you are following this path, keeping your mouth shut and ears open is a good rule to follow. It would be nice to see music education make a bit of a comeback in public schools.

4) Why are you using Mooer pedals?

The Mooer pedals are light weight and great sounding. They are especially great if you are traveling, as we all know air travel is becoming more difficult! But I use the pedals in the city too, On gigs on sessions etc, they are really nice sounding. (Ed note: Stew uses the Mooer Yellow Comp, Trelicopter, Ana Echo and Flex Boost)

5) What future projects do you have coming up?

I have a steady gig ay a place called Arthur’s stewcutler guitarTavern here in NYC. I want to record that band, maybe do a live disc, I also want to do a “family band” recording with my wife who sang on ‘So Many Streams” my third disc, my son who is very busy as a bass player in New York and plays on one song on “After Hours” and my daughter who sings and plays with a group called “Small Wonder”, as well as doing her own gigs under the name, “Yours are the Only Ears”.
