The Sound Hound Lounge – All About Killer Tones and Gear You Need to Know

Jimmy Dillon makes a guest appearance towards the end of
Secrets of the Jam Masters with Mark Karan…

Its a feature called the Sound Hound Lounge…
its all about killer tones and gear… check it out.

MALE: Welcome to MK Sound Lounge, a new feature.
This is the first time out. I’m going to be sitting

you know? It’s pretty cool.
