Heptode Winner Review

Earlier this month we announced the winner of the Heptode Virtuoso. It was Sean W. of Maple Ridge, B.C. It took awhile for the pedal to traverse both countries, but it finally arrived and from the picture below it looks like they are getting along just fine. This is what Sean had to say after playing it: “I have to say this pedal sounds awesome. Way better than I thought …and my expectations were already high. I can only...

Electro-Harmonix: Super Pulsar

The old Stereo Pulsar from Electro-Harmonix gave you the ability to modulate your wave form, from square to triangle.

In order to keep it interesting, we try to find a different slant to questions or ask something a little left of field to keep it fresh and...

Source Audio: New in 2015

New information dribbling out of the run-up to NAMM 2015 comes in the form of a Source Audio update. Turns out they have a few pedals they plan on releasing in the new year. Pedals that are a bit more sleek, a bit more straight-forward without sacrificing anything in the arena of quality.  The following is what’s currently available from the Source Audio site and is the culmination of sneak peaks they are releasing slowly, but...
