We just got in the Red Witch Famulus Distortion pedal and I have to say I’m impressed! Distortion pedals are a dime a dozen these days, so I wasn’t really excited to hear that Red Witch was coming out with another distortion pedal on an already crowded distortion pedal market. The cool thing is that Red Witch (like all of their other pedals) thought outside of the box and created a unique and very usable distortion pedal that sets it in it’s own space in “distortion world.”
It has two separate distortion circuits in one box. Both are voiced differently and both can be used independently or together in literally any combination of the two. One can even be set to an almost clean sound while the other is at 100% gain for a very heavy, yet clear tone. Check out the video below for a great demonstration.
Price: $249.99 (free shipping in the USA). Click here to order.
Electro-Harmonix just released the POG 2 which is a smaller version of the original POG. It’s not completely identical to the POG, but the idea is the same. In addition to containing the majority of the functionality of the original POG it also has the option to save up to 8 presets and is housed in EHX’s pedal board friendly XO chassis. Last but not least it’s true bypass AND it runs off a common 9v power supply to it won’t require an additional power supply to take up more space. EHX really did a great job on this pedal. We’ve got them in stock (as I type this at least). Feel free to call (218.260.4176) or email to confirm availability. Click here to order.

Electro-Harmonix has quite a few new pedals coming out in the next few months. At this point I don’t have much more than very basic info, but I’ll give some updates as I get more info. If you’re interested in pre-ordering any of these, please call (218.260.4176) or email us to place the order.
We’re waiting for our first order of Line 6 effects to get in this week! We’ll be stocking a wide variety of Line 6 effects ranging from stomp boxes to multi-effects processors (Floor PODs, M13, etc.) as well as many of their rack processors (POD XT, POD X3, etc).
I’m excited to share that Macdaddy Music is now an official gig-fx dealer! We just placed our first order and will have all 5 of their models in stock later this week.
If you’re unfamiliar with gig-fx, they make some fantastic products that are a mix of ingenuity and functionality packed into one great item. Currently, they’re producing 5 pedals. All are housed in a the same style housing – a wah/volume sized pedal. All pedals also feature the same style expression pedal that functions differently for each pedal. Current production models include:
Pro Chop – a stereo tremolo, leslie, panning pedal and more with a digital readout and MIDI sync capabilities. Chopper- a stereo tremolo, leslie, panning pedal and more. VOD (Variable OverDrive) – three overdrive/distortion pedals in one with a shared 3 band EQ and individual level and gain controls for each. Kilo-Wah – four wah effects in one pedal (classic wah, mega wah, auto wah, envelope filter)! All controlled by a noise free and wear free optically-linked pedal mechanism. Mega-Wah – SIX wah effects in one pedal including an envelope filter, auto wah and stereo wahs. Also, doubles as a volume pedal.
Check out this video of Jeff Purchon (creator of gig-fx) demonstrating some of these models.
Electro-Harmonix just released the Screaming Bird Treble Booster and the Mole Bass Booster. Both are based on the classic LPB1 circuit from the late ’60′s. As their names imply, the Screaming Bird takes the classic LPB1 circuit and boosts the treble frequencies, while the Mole boosts the bass frequencies of the original LPB1 circuit. Both effects are true bypass and housed in EHX’s Nano series chassis, so they take up very little space on your effects board. The price on these is quite competitive at just $39 for either model (free shipping in the USA!) Here’s a video from EHX on these pedals that mostly highlights the Screaming Bird.
T-Rex Engineering announced a number of new pedals at the last NAMM show and we’ve got one of them coming in very soon! The Gristle Luxury Drive is a booster that’s designed to push your amp or your overdrive pedals even harder. It was designed in conjunction with Greg Koch along with a couple of other upcoming pedals that are a part of the Gristle series. Check out this video that shows the Luxury Drive at work along with the DGTM pedal that we’ll also have in very soon.
The price on the Luxury Drive is $149.99 with free shipping in the USA. We should have them in the first few days in May. You can pre-order to reserve yours.
