A couple more new EHX pedals coming in soon….

Electro-Harmonix is coming out with even more new pedals in the coming month or two. It seems like they come out with a couple new pedals every couple of months, but hey – people don’t seem to mind it!

The two pedals coming out in the next 1-2 months should be in my opinion HUGE hits. The first is the:

Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Memory Boy Analog Delay w/Tap Tempoa20791f124c9be5d2ad132 m A couple more new EHX pedals coming in soon….

This takes the newly released and very popular Memory Boy and adds some controls and features that make it an unbelievably practical and powerful pedal. The tap tempo feature is the best feature in my opinion, but the added EFX loop and more in depth controls are great additions too. Combine that with a street price that’s very attractive and I think EHX has another huge hit with the Deluxe Memory Boy.

This is expected to be released sometime in January 2010. If you’re interested in one we’re taking pre-orders.

Price: $179.25 (free shipping in the USA).

The other great pedal coming out in early December is based on another recent release that’s been hugely popular as well.

a20791f124c9c76ed9f4b m A couple more new EHX pedals coming in soon….Electro-Harmonix Iron Lung Vocoder

The Iron Lung takes some of the basic features from the EHX V256 Vocoder and puts it into a Nano sized housing. If you want just a basic vocoder with killer quality tones in a compact housing there is nothing else on the market that fits the bill. The Iron Lung features the same 256 band processing as the V256 and gives you three controls (including Gender Bender).

This is expected in by early December. If you’re interested in ordering as a pre-order click here. We can’t guarantee that they’ll be in in time for a Christmas gift, but it’s looking like we’ll be able to get them out in time for that if you did want to give one to that special musician in your life!

Price: $144.75 (free shipping in the USA)

More pickups and cables added to our line-up.

I’m excited about a couple of new items we’ve added to our inventory hear at Macdaddy Music:

Dean USA pickups and Lava Cables.

Both products share some similarities. Both are made in the USA by well respected companies, and both are extremely great values for the money.

Dean pickups are designed and made in the USA and most of their models are designed in conjunction with some high profile guitarists who give them real world testing on the stage during the design phase. If you’re looking for a great sounding USA made rock pickup at a great price, you can’t go wrong with these Dean pickups.

Lava Cables have been around for awhile now, but we’re just adding them to our product line-up. Their pedal board kits feature the smallest jacks in the industry which is a real selling point in the world of cramped pedalboards. Combine that with their short proof design and incredibly transparent tone and you’ll wonder how these cables can be as affordable as they are.

As always, feel free to email or call if you have questions on these or any other items we sell. We’re more than happy to answer questions about the stuff we sell (and even stuff we don’t sell assuming we have some good knowledge about it).

All that in a box the size of the typical MXR sized boxes (Phase 90, Dynacomp, etc) so it won’t eat up your precious pedal board space. Below is a video that features the Fullbore in action. The first part features the Dunlop KH-95 Kirk Hammett Wah (skip to about 2:00 if you want to just see the M-116 demo). Video courtesy of Premier Guitar magazine.
