Tech 21 Roto Choir (LEFT)
– This rotary speaker simulator emulates the entire signal chain of a mic’d Leslie cabinet, from the tube power amp to the low-frequency speaker, high-frequency horn, and XY stereo-mic setup. The pedal’s Fast/Slow switch lets you slow down, ramp up, or even pause the simulated rotary speaker in a variety of positions to create a cool “frozen flange” effect. The Roto Choir has a buffered bypass, a Bi-Amp switch, a Drive control, and stereo outputs. tech21nyc.com
Source Audio Soundblox Guitar Envelope Filter (RIGHT) – Optimized for guitar and compatible with the Hot Hand Motion Controller Ring, this stompbox contains 21 different filter types—including 2-pole low-pass, 4-pole low-pass, single peak, triple peak, and phaser—and you can adjust the direction and speed of the filters. sourceaudio.net




Red Witch Seven Sisters – This new line of diminutive pedals—the Lily Boost, Eve Tremolo, Ivy Distortion, Scarlett Overdrive, Violet Delay, Grace Compressor, and Ruby Fuzz— provides a lot of pedalboard convenience. For starters, each is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, thus eliminating the need for outboard power. Secondly, their jacks are located along the top edge, which means they can be placed closer together to optimize pedalboard space. redwitchanalogpedals.com




Roland GR-55 Guitar Synthesizer – Roland has long been a leader in the guitar-synth industry, but the new GR-55 goes a long way toward simplifying the process of getting a universe of sounds out of your MIDI-pickup-equipped guitar. It’s housed in the smallest guitar-synth housing we’ve seen, and has perhaps the cleanest, most uncluttered interface on the market. It includes revamped pitch-detection technology, more than 900 editable PCM sounds, COSM modeling (23 guitar types and 17 bass types), two multi-effect engines, looping capability, and 297 memory slots. rolandus.com




Visual Sound Dual Tap Delay – The Dual Tap features two independent delay circuits that are identical except for the Modulation control that lets you add some chorus-type sounds to the second circuit. The Tap Tempo footswitch locks both channels into a single tempo, or a metronome input allows you to sync delays with an outside source. You can also select quarter, eighth, dotted-eighth, and eighth-note-triplet repeat values. visualsound.net




Eventide Space Reverb (LEFT) – The Space is a pedal worthy of its name. With reverb modes ranging from the super-cosmic Blackhole mode to settings that sound like U2’s the Edge, it also offers a vast menu of tremolo and delay effects. eventide.com
Shure PGXD14 Wireless System (RIGHT) – This 24-bit, 48 kHz digital wireless system includes the PGXD1 transmitter and PGXD4 receiver, which operates in the 900 MHz range. The PGXD1 transmitter is sleek and has a tiny, recessed pot for varying your output from line level to +26 dB. shure.com
