Upcoming products from Rocktron

Rocktron has been well known for a very long time for their HUSH units, processors and controllers and in recent years they’ve been putting out more and more floor effects. Now, they’re looking to expand even further into the floor effects world with some new products and product lines.

One line is their Reaction series of pedals. They’re smaller footprint (compared to their original stomp boxes) make them much more pedal board friendly.

Second up is their Boutique line of pedals. As the name implies this will be a series of higher quality stomp boxes.

Also upcoming is a FLOOR version of the incredibly popular Patchmate Loop 8 for use with pedals! This is sure to be a major hit with guitarists worldwide.

Another couple of new products soon to be released – the Rocktron Utopia G200B and G300B – an integration of two existing Rocktron products – the G200 (or G300) WITH an integrated Banshee talkbox effect! Not only will this save guitarists who want both effects a lot of space, but it will also give Rocktron a multi-effects processor that does not have an equal on the market. Nice work Rocktron!

Also in the works is a Velocity 300 power amp. The Velocity 100 has been a very popular power amp and is a great mix of power and features for the price. While I don’t have details on the features of the Velocity 300 yet, it seems to be a safe assumption that it’ll be more or less a 300 watt version of the Velocity 100.

Last, but not least is the forthcoming Rocktron Hush Ultra rack unit. This unit allows the user to store presets and control them via MIDI. A great tool to change noise suppresion characteristics for different pieces of gear.

I’m still waiting to hear on pricing and ETA’s on all of these items and will post more info soon.

Stay tuned………

Xotic Effects introduces the Andy Timmons signature BB Preamp

xoticbbat Xotic Effects introduces the Andy Timmons signature BB PreampXotic Effects has recently announced that they’re releasing a limited edition Andy Timmons signature model BB Preamp. They released a similar model last year, the Scott Henderson signature model RC Booster. The RC Booster appeared to be a runaway hit (we sold out all of our stock within a matter of several weeks). I anticipate the same with the Andy Timmons BB Preamp.

The BBP-AT takes the standard BB preamp and gives it a smoother, warmer and more compressed tone. Also, Xotic is including a copy of Andy’s “Live Resolution” DVD and a certification signed by Andy himself!

Only 1,000 of these are being made, and a lot of those will be sold to dealers outside of the USA, so if you’re looking to pick one of these up, do it quickly before they’re gone!

Price: $210 (free shipping in the USA).

Visual Sound V2 pedals now in stock.

test r1 c1 Visual Sound V2 pedals now in stock.I’m excited to share that we’re now carrying Visual Sound pedals! Their V2 line of pedals came out a little while back and we just got in our first batch of them in a few days ago.

I’m a big fan of Visual Sound pedals because they make effects that are well thought out, well designed, and a great value. Most of their pedals have a wide variety of controls and parameters that allow you to adjust things to your exact liking. The build quality and durability on their products is fantastic and the price relative to comparable products is a real bargain!

Check out the Visual Sound pedals we have in stock here, or check out Visual Sounds website for more in depth information on their products and the company.

Elixir Cables now in stock!

elixir c p f c Elixir Cables now in stock!
Elixir Strings have been around for awhile now and have earned a much deserved reputation as being some of the best strings you can buy. Now, they’ve released instrument cables that follow in the footsteps of their string line.

We’ve got several models in stock and available here.

For many people, cables are a boring topic and an easily overlooked part to their overall tone. I can completely identify with you, if you’re in that camp! It’s much more fun to spend money on a guitar pedal than it is on a couple of guitar cables. That said, using excellent quality cables is one of the quickest, easiest and least expensive ways to make an immediately noticeable improvement in your tone. Rather than trying to describe this in words, check out some sample audio clips that Elixir has on their website comparing Elixir cables with two different “run of the mill” cables.

Also, check out the following video’s that feature Taylor Guitar’s VP of Marketing, Brian Swerdfeger, and guitar luthier extraordinaire, Tom Anderson talking about Elixir cables (among other things).
