Meris: Hedra

Meris: Hedra

Pedals and Effects coming at you with an exclusive first look at the Hedra from the masterminds at Meris! The Hedra is an “intelligent” pitch shifter, where you can hard set the key and scale and effectively transpose for your instrument. Auto-tune for guitar/bass? It’s exactly what it sounds like, and the Hedra is capable of that, and so much more.

JAM Pedals: Red Muck Bass

JAM Pedals: Red Muck Bass

This past NAMM, we had the pleasure of meeting the crew behind JAM pedals! Word quickly spread through the convention center that Nick and I had to check out their booth ASAP. When we finally made it, the first thing that caught our eye was all the amazing hand painted artwork on their pedals. JAM pedals meticulously handcraft and paint each and every one of their pedals, and their lineup is magical. I was told that their “Red Muck Bass” would replace my Sovtek Big Fuzz, and well, they’re not wrong.

Gamechanger Audio: Plasma Pedal

Gamechanger Audio: Plasma Pedal

You want crazy? We got crazy. Straight out of Latvia, it’s the Gamechanger Audio Plasma Pedal! This might be one of the most unique distortion pedals we’ve ever encountered. It’s hard not to notice the vibrant electrical charges shooting through the Plasma Pedal’s tiny window, turns out there’s a whole lot more going on under the hood. Unlike typical distortion pedals it does not use transistors, or clipping diodes, but rather a unique process that converts your signal into electricity, then back out as sound. It’s a science experiment of a pedal and we love it. You have to hear it, to believe it!

TC Electronic: June-60

TC Electronic: June-60

A few years ago at GuitCon , TC Electronic very quietly showed off a surprise pedal that went largely unnoticed by the blues rockers and shredders present. Nick and I however, were flipping out. Based on the famous Roland Juno-60 synthesizer, TC Electronic isolated a single part of the synth for a no frills, faithful re-creation of that classic chorus sound. It’s simple, no frills, and what’s even better, it’s just $50!
