LeVeque's Best Pedals of 2019

LeVeque's Best Pedals of 2019

1. Sanford & Sonny Bluebeard Distortion

Literally my favorite fuzz ever...quote me. Handles low end amazingly well, and has pretty versatile fuzz tones from warm and velcro-ey to super high gain and distortion-type fuzz. Works great for guitar as well.

2. Caroline Guitar Co Somersault Chorus
(CME Exclusive Color Way)

The Somersault brings back all those nostalgic '80s big chorus-y tones but also leaves room for some really crazy sea-sick modulations. Our exclusive color way is pretty sick too.

3. Walrus Audio Fathom + ARP-87 Combo
(CME Exclusive)

Two amazing Walrus pedals in one box! This one really shines in making spacey, ambient tones, but can be dialed back into a super tame reverb and delay which makes it an awesome pedal to have on any board. We couldn't hang onto this one!

4. Strymon Volante

One of the most dense and capable delays out there. On-board looper, super high quality Strymon DSPs make this thing sound like a bonafide tape echo without all the hassle that comes with using real tape.

5. Death By Audio Evil Fuzz

The name says it all. While perhaps not for ever fuzz-head, this one surely gets EVIL and provides an aggressive, obliterating fuzz tone unlike any other on the market.

6. Chase Bliss Audio MOOD

The Chase Bliss MOOD isn't just another noisemaker. The granular delay and micro-looper provide a huge canvas to make truly unique soundscapes that open up new creative avenues on guitar, bass, synths, or any instrument you can plug into it. You'll get lost for hours in this one. Safe to say it really puts you in a mood!

7. Damnation Audio True Bypass Loop Blender 

The ultimate utility for a bass rig. Blend in your effected signal with your clean signal to maintain clarity at any volume and get the absolute best out of your rig. If you're feeling like something is just "missing" from your sound, add this to your board and you'll surely notice an improvement!
