Celebrating the 10th anniversary of their multi-awarded Echosex pedal, Foxgear unveils the Steve Lukather Echosex 3.
Steve has used the Echosex since the beginning, since 2014 he's used it on all of his songs in studio and live, with Toto and Ringo Starr, touring intensively all around the world.
Here’s what Steve says about it: “The Echosex 3° is the most important and used piece of gear i have, it’s always ON and it’s big part of my sound.” (S.Lukather 2023)
Looking to his pedalboard, and how Luke’s legendary Guitar Tech Jon Gosnell has marked the specific Luke’s settings on it with a green marker, Foxgear wanted to keep this detail into the new signature model and share Luke’s fav setting as well. Foxgear group and Luke, wanted to celebrate their long standing friendship and professional relationship with this new product, Plus we have involved the Ed Asner Family Center For Autism, a LA based Charity founded by legendary Actor Ed Asner, supporting autistic children and their families.

Mythos Pedals Brings Back the Luxury Drive
The Luxury Drive adjusts the gain of a single transistor to deliver a punchy and clear sound.
Mythos Pedals has collaborated with Tim Jauernig to bring back the classic Luxury Drive Boost pedal. Hitting a clean amp, driving pedals, or pushing an already driven amp with the approximate 14dB of output is designed to get your tone right in the sweet spot.
Tim Jauernig, the original designer, is well known for his signature pedals designed for Greg Koch, Jeff Kollman, and more. TC Jauernig's pedals were always straightforward and no-nonsense and that vision definitely align with Zach’s idea for Mythos. Tim has taken a step back from building and Mythos is honored to keep his name and products alive in the minds and boards of players the world over.
Mythos Pedals Luxury Drive Boost Pedal
The Mythos Pedals Luxury Drive comes in a 125B enclosure with Top Mount jacks, and just like many of Tim’s designs, the baseplate is left raw aluminum for an old-school boutique feel. The Luxury Drive features a single true bypass switch and solitary level control, it doesn’t get any simpler than that. They will be available on March 8th, 2023 for $139 at Mythos Pedals dealers. We hope that this is the first of many collaborations with Tim Jauernig.

The Bros. Landreth: “Guitar Playing Wasn’t a Priority”Jason Shadrick
One of the core ingredients that is essential to any Bros. Landreth album is also the most dreaded: abject fear and panic. It doesn’t sprout up from any particular insecurity about the end result, but rather where to start. “We always say we’re going to write 30 tunes and pick our 10 favorites,” says Joey Landreth. “But we usually write 12 and pick 11.” At first, the fear was unsettling, but Joey and his bassist brother, David, have not only thrived under the self-imposed pressure but relished it. Factor in a world-changing pandemic, the experience of being new dads, and a soul-crushing session gone wrong, it’s amazing that Come Morning even saw the light of day.
