In the past few weeks we’ve had a number of really great new products that have either arrived or will shortly. Some are very limited releases that will likely sell very quickly and when they’re gone, they’re gone, while others are newly released pedals that will be around for awhile, but are nonetheless great products. Here’s a quick summary of some of the ones that I’m most excited about!
Way Huge Aqua Puss MkII Analog Delay – the re-release of one of the more highly desirable Way Huge classics from the 90′s. This MkII version features the identical circuitry, design, etc. for identical tone to the original, all at a price that is very reasonable (especially considering used originals go for close to $1000!). Price: $149.99 In stock and shipping.
ProCo Limited Edition 1985 Whiteface Rat Re-issue – another re-release of a classic pedal. Identical in every way to the original, all the way down to the ever-important LM308 chip. Quantities are limited – only around 2000 were produced and when they’re gone, they’re gone, so move quick if you want one! Price: $199.99 In stock and shipping.
Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Memory Boy Analog Delay w/Tap Tempo - This is destined to be another EHX smash hit and classic. Analog delay with tap tempo, an effects loop, an expression pedal jack, more controls than almost any other delay pedal on the market (analog or digital) and all at a price less than most analog delays with far fewer features! Price: $179.25 In stock and shipping.
MXR M-82 Bass Envelope Filter – MXR has released a compact and powerful envelope filter made just for bass. True bypass, tons of tweakability, and in a compact box that will fit onto the most crowded of pedal boards. Price: $149.99 In stock and shipping.
MXR ZW-38 Zakk Wylde Black Label Chorus - All analog chorus designed for Zakk Wylde. Bucket brigade circuitry and tons of controls all in a very compact housing and at an attractive price make it a really solid choice if you’re in the market for a chorus pedal. Price: $99.99 In stock and shipping.
Xotic Effects Limited Color Edition AC Booster, BB Preamp & RC Booster - Xotic has released some custom colors versions of three of their most popular pedals. As the name implies these are all limited releases that when they’re gone, they’re gone! Xotic has released only 500 AC Boosters (gold glitter) and 650 of both the BB Preamp (orange glitter) and RC Booster (silver glitter). All three models have the same internal components and features as the standard production pedals. Price: $186 Expected in shortly (mid-March). I expect these to be sold out before they physically arrive.
