We have some new pedals, some coming soon, some coming very soon!

First up we have Collider.

This loop pedal has an adjustable gain stage on your input signal, and a gain stage on the signal sent to the loop, with a variable tone control to limit which frequencies go to the loop. Then there is a mixer to allow you to blend the signal from the effects loop back in with your original sound. Lots of possibilities with this one!

Next is Ouroboros. This is another loop pedal, this time with two true-bypass effects loops switchable by foot. There's a nice sounding op amp based buffer that you can turn on or off and position before the loops or after the loops. This is a good swiss army knife pedal for controlling those unruly signal chains.

Both Collider and Ouroboros models are being built as we speak, and should be available in the store within a week or two.

Last, we have our new fuzz pedal. I haven't actually gotten around to naming this one yet. This is a transistor based fuzz pedal that has two modes. The first mode is a raunchy 60s style fuzz. The second mode changes the bias on the second transistor and adds germanium clipping diodes, getting a smoother drive sound, more reminiscent of a distortion pedal. Either section then feeds into a very interactive EQ section. This one should be lots of fun, and the circuit will be finished with the initial design phase in a couple weeks.

In other news, we're gearing up for the Carolina Guitar Show on August 23 and 24. If you're in the Charlotte, NC area, please come by and see us! The show is being held at the Metrolina Expo, 10am - 6pm on Saturday and 10am - 4pm on Sunday. We'll have pedals to try out and buy, t-shirts for sale, stickers and more. Should be a good time!
