Fad gadgets: The gizmos putting the prog into progress
Rhodri Marsden on three of the latest must-have gizmos, including Fender bluetooth speakers and an eco-friendly guitar
Fender bluetooth speakers
In an ideal world I’d stop going on about Bluetooth speakers here, but companies will insist on coming up with unusual spins on the old formula. Fender’s Monterey and the Newport are inspired by the ‘68 Custom amps, and have the iconic grille, knobs and labelling. The Monterey needs plugging into a wall but packs a powerful 120W punch, while the Newport is portable and gives you 12 hours of music on a single charge.
