Walrus Audio Introduces Eons Five-State Fuzz Pedal

Watch this official demo of the Walrus Audio Eons Five-State Fuzz.

The newest member of Warlus Audio's family of five-state pedals is the Eons Fuzz. Like the Ages overdrive and Eras distortion before it, this versatile, goat-adorned stompbox features a five-position rotary knob to access changes in clipping configurations ranging from traditional silicon soft clipping to rambunctious hard clipping transistors with plenty of gain.

A new addition to this pedal is its Voltage knob, which players can either use to boost the circuit up to 18 volts for a thick, saturated sound, or pare it down to three volts for gated, crunchy textures.

Fender Releases Limited Johnny Marr Jaguar

Stop us if you think that you've heard this one before: Fender has once again teamed up with Johnny Marr to release a limited-edition version of his signature Jaguar guitar, this time in a Fever Dream Yellow lacquer finish. The maple-necked guitar is based on The Smiths guitarist's 1965 Jaguar and comes with a four-way pickup switch, a "taller" tremolo arm, and Bare Knuckle single-coil pickups.

As Marr put it himself in an interview with Fender earlier this year, "I’ve taken all the aspects of the guitar in every direction I could, to improve it without losing the classic features that I liked from the original design. It’s been a labour of love and obsession, and a privilege. I’ve used it for everything I’ve done since I started making it. It’s my perfect guitar."

Two Notes Announces ReVolt Amp Simulators

Two Notes ReVolt Guitar
Two Notes ReVolt Guitar

The team at Two Notes Audio Engineering announced a new pair of three-channel, all-analog, 200V tube powered amp simulators for guitars and basses. The ReVolt Guitar's channels are inspired by the clean tone of the Fender Bassman 100, the bite of a Marshall JMP Superlead, and the bark of a Soldano SLO 100. The ReVolt Bass channels take their cues from the thump of the Ampeg SVT '76, the dirt from the Marshall JMP Super Bass Mark II, and a custom "gained-to-the-max" modern drive tone. With these potent preamp solutions, players can "retain all the convenience of a DI signal, now with the warmth, the bite, the all-important response only tubes can provide."

JHS Releases New Octave Reverb & Harmonic Trem

Josh Scotts explains and demos his latest creations.

Joining the ranks of JHS' affordable 3 Series, the new Octave Reverb and Harmonic Trem bring inventive sounds into the line's simple format.

The Octave Reverb takes cues from the shimmery sounds Brian Eno and others created in the '80s, big reverbs with octave effects blended into their decays. Meanwhile, the Harmonic Trem offers the stranger, phaser-like tremolo circuits found on some of Leo Fender's earliest amps.

Moog Music Model 10 Modular Synthesizer Back In Production

The Moog Model 10 in action, played by synthesist Hannes Bieger.

After a successful limited-time run in 2019, Moog Music's Model 10 modular synthesizer is back in production at the company's Asheville, North Carolina factory. The reissued instrument will reintroduce these large-format modular systems to a new generation of synthesists.

The Model 10 is a faithful replica of Dr. Bob Moog's first compact modular synthesizer from 1971, down to the hand-soldered electronic circuits. The fully-analog instrument comprises 11 modules; these include the 907 Fixed Filter Bank, celebrated for its superb sound and timbral shaping possibilities, and three 900 Series oscillators.

According to Moog, the engineering and manufacturing methods for each Model 10 are still the same as those used over 50 years ago—wiring is done traditionally, and testing is done on completed modules. A broader range of selectable voltages has been added to the onboard power supply, including 100v, 120v, 220v, and 240v. This synthesizer can be used anywhere in the world without needing voltage converters. However, classic handbuilt Moog power comes with a hefty price tag—the new Model 10 Legacy Modular System will only be built to order for $11,999.

Electro-Harmonix Releases New Big Muff Pi Hardware Plugin

Listen to the new EHX Big Muff Pi Hardware Plugin in action.

Electro-Harmonix has just released a very interesting and unique new generation of one of its most popular and beloved effects. It's the new Big Muff Pi Hardware Plugin, and though it looks unassumingly like a regular Big Muff, this nifty unit is actually as much of a plugin as it is a pedal.

This new Big Muff Pi Hardware Plugin functions with all DAWs as any traditional plugin would, except that it runs your tracks through the actual analog circuitry of the pedal for added warmth and authenticity. It can also act as a standalone stereo recording interface.

But this extra layer of functionality doesn't mean that it can't be slapped onto a pedalboard and used traditionally as well. It features the classic Pi's familiar control configuration (plus added tone wicker and bypass controls) and 10 footswitchable presets. An unlimited number of presets can be saved to your computer and transferred to your unit anytime. The new Big Muff Pi Hardware Plugin is available now on Reverb.

Orange Launch Retro 70s Effect Pedal Series

Check out Orange's Sustain, Phaser, and Distortion pedals in this official demo.

British amplification legends Orange return with a reboot of three of their large and long-discontinued effects units from the early 1970s: the Orange Sustain, the Orange Phaser, and the Orange Distortion, available now from UK sellers. Based on the original schematics and modernized with LEDs and DC inputs, these remakes are described by Orange as "the perfect homage to one of rock's golden ages, but also ripe for any modern setup."

The Orange Sustain serves as an overdrive for clean tone and a volume boost without sacrificing the aura of your raw signal. The one-knob Orange Phaser adds a dose of psychedelia through its flexible four-stage circuitry, capable of sweeps and swirls alike. The Orange Distortion replaces the original pedal's diode design with an amp circuit complete with adjustable treble, elevating its signature scream and saturation to another level.

Fender Releases New Artist Signature Joe Strummer Telecaster

Take a listen to Fender's new Artist Signature Joe Strummer Telecaster.

Today, Fender has unveiled the newest addition to its Artist Signature series: the Joe Strummer Telecaster. Though Fender has made Strummer signature models before, this Artist Signature model is considerably more exacting in matching the rocker's original and well-loved 1966 Fender Telecaster.

This new Joe Strummer Signature Telecaster features period-correct appointments—like a mid-'60s C-shaped maple neck with a 7.25-inch radius and rosewood fingerboard—and custom '60s-voiced Joe Strummer single-coils. Strummer's model was originally finished in a three-tone sunburst, but The Clash legend quickly covered that with gray primer and coat of black paint from an auto body shop. This new signature model matches every layer—including each ding, divot, and bit of road-worn rust—under a period-correct nitro lacquer finish. The new signature Telecaster is available for preorder now for $1,799 USD.

Fender Adds Princeton Reverb to Tone Master Range

Take a sonic tour of the new Fender Tone Master Princeton Reverb.

Fender has just released another addition to its popular Tone Master modeling amp series, the Princeton Reverb. As with the other releases introduced in this line since its launch in 2019, the new Tone Master Princeton Reverb promises to be a true tonal recreation of the original amp without the tubes and 10 pounds of amp weight. It features a control layout identical to the tube original, a 10-inch Jensen C10R speaker (with a ceramic magnet that's heavier than the neodymium magnets used in the other Tone Master amps), a balanced XLR output, and a Cab Sim switch with two IR cabinet simulation options. A footswitch is expected to come with the Tone Master Princeton Reverb as well, which can be used to trigger effects. The Tone Master Princetone Reverb is available for preorder now, with an expected ship date in late December.
