New At NAMM 2020: Effects
Step on it! Get them before they’re gone!
Jackson Audio Modular Fuzz
A fuzz pedal with a switchable octave control, and swappable chips that can change the character of the fuzz! More chips will be released later to produced a huge variety of fuzz tones. This is essentially every type of fuzz in one pedal!
Walrus Audio MAKO Series D1 Delay
The Mako Series D1 High-Fidelity Delay is designed for both the studio and the stage and features midi control, five fully customizable, studio-grade delay programs, and room for nine on-board user presets.
Pigtronix Infinity Looper 2
Pigtronix makes the original Infinity Looper easier to use by streamlining the user interface and adding a second independent loop with seamless switching.
Boss SY-1000 Guitar Synthesizer
Three simultaneous instruments and premium processing let you craft any sound you can imagine—intense analog-style leads, warm pads, moving synth textures, modeled electric and acoustic tones, or all at once. And with freely configurable footswitches, outputs, and external controls, you can maximize the hardware for any workflow. Sonically vast and deeply expressive, the SY-1000 is an infinite well of inspiration, energizing your musical vision with endless possibilities.
Way Huge Swollen Pickle
Way Huge stuffs the whole Swollen Pickle Jumbo Fuzz MKII into a smaller enclosure for a more convenient footprint on your pedalboard without losing a drop of the sweet, sweet juice.
Eventide H9 Max Dark Limited Edition
Eventide fits an entire library of effects, including the new TriceraChorus, new for NAMM 2020, into the 25-square-inch enclosure of the H9 Max, shown here in limited edition black. Preloaded onto the new H9 Max Dark Limited Edition, Eventide’s TriceraChorus draws inspiration from classic bucket brigade tri-chorus effects and popular choruses for live and studio use.
Dunlop QZ1 Crybaby Qzone Wah
Let there be wah! The Dunlop QZ1 Qzone Wah may not look like your typical wah pedal, and it’s not. This auto-wah features a traditional footswitch for fixed-position sound with the convenience of a stompbox.
Chase Bliss Audio Automatone Preamp MKII & CXM 1978
What’s an Automatone, you ask? It’s a pedal built with motorized knobs that adjust automatically – and a little magically – as you cycle through presets. What happens when you combine the DNA of Benson Amps’ Chimera in a box Preamp with a little fuzz, some of Condor’s resonant parametric mids, and full blown preset control from your friends at Chase Bliss Audio? The Preamp MKII.
Caroline Megabyte Lo-fi Delay Computer & Silver Can LTD CME Exclusive
Caroline Guitar Company adds a second lo-fi digital chip to their Kilobyte to create the Megabyte, a "lo-fi delay computer" with increased delay time, subdividable tap tempo, trails/true bypass switching, and an even more hectic "Havoc" mode with momentary footswitching.
Vertex Steel String Clean Drive MKII
The new version of this true bypass pedal still perfectly emulates the famed Dumble amplifier, performing everything from overdrive and fat boost to compression and EQ, all with that warm, fat tone and touch-sensitivity, but Vertex has also added “Rock/Jazz” toggle switching for bass cut control and reduced the overall footprint by a third, meaning you can fill your board with more Vertex without sacrificing a bit of that once-unattainable Dumble tone!
JAM Pedals Delay Llama Xtreme
Jam Pedals expands the Delay Llama series with the Delay Llama Xtreme, packed with three 3205 BBD chips and loads of new features, like four experimental presets: Vibrato, Tape-age, Random, and Pitch-shift. Vibrato is a sine-wave LFO modulator with Depth and Speed control. Tape-age emulates the worn-down warble of vintage tape-echos. Random is, well, random, altering the ms level for over fixed time increments, and Pitch-shift offers five distinct pitch-shifted intervals and five playback patterns, including a five-mode sequencer. Other Xtreme new features include an 800ms max delay time, subdividable tap tempo, hold function, kill/dry switching, buffered trails or true bypass modes, external expression/CV input, and inputs for remote tap tempo and preset control. Llama-rama, engage!
