Summer NAMM 2015: Electro-Harmonix 22500 Dual Stereo Looper

A few days ago we reported on the Silencer from Electro-Harmonix, a noise gate with lots of control. It’s a pretty neat utility pedal that can add a lot of control to a pedal board. But, that wasn’t all EHX has been up to this last year. Besides announcing the Silencer at Summer NAMM 2015, they also announced the coming of the 22500 Dual Stereo Looper. The folks at Electro-Harmonix have this to say officially: Combining a...

EarthQuaker Devices: The Dunes

It was 2014 and the folks at Earthquaker Devices had done something they said they never would. They created an overdrive based on the TS808 – that classically copied circuit beloved by everyone. No one could say there weren’t enough clones of the TS808 on the market. No one could even say that there weren’t enough variants of the TS808 on the market.

Summer NAMM 2015: TC Electronic BodyRez

In the world of effects, production follows the market. Lot’s of love goes out to those musicians who play the electric guitar. Lots of love in the form of 1,000s of pedals to tinker with and create. If I had to guess, I’d say that next up in the line is the bass player (who can use guitar pedals-BTW) with a good array of choices when it comes to pedals associated to their specific octave, tone and signal...
