Greer Amps Black Tiger and Hammer
Greer Amplification came to Nashville with both a Black Tiger and Hammer in hand. The Black Tiger delay features an analog signal path with a digital delay repeater circuit and was designed to have the warmth and feel of vintage delays with some added touch sensitivity and slight grain on the repeats. The Hammer brings the nasty with textures that range from gnarly Texas rock distortion to squashed-out, almost cut-off fuzz. Both are $199 street and will start shipping once the Greer crew gets home.
