Utilizing the patent pending Bad Cat Unleash Technology, this little hand-wired beast is capable of producing about 100 watts from a single-ended amplifier.
Irvine, CA (September 14, 2012) – “If you have ever experienced the pleasure of playing a really fine vintage single-ended, all tube amplifier then you'll know the feeling when you plug into this amplifier,” said John Thompson, president of Bad Cat Amps. “Our newest amplifier changes the way you play, inspiring and pushing you as a player. Touch sensitivity, sweet breakup and natural sounding compression, it’s all there.”
“The problem that arises with single-ended amplifiers is that they are limited to low wattage situations. Imagine having that touch sensitivity and gig-able volumes, that’s what the Bobcat 100 does. Hand-wired, single-ended, touch sensitive and yet it’s ferocious. Utilizing the patent pending Bad Cat Unleash Technology, this little hand-wired beast is capable of producing about 100 watts from a single-ended amplifier. Turn the Unleash off and you have a pure, 5 watt amp that can be used in your bedroom.” Thompson continues; “If the tone and power are not enough reason for you to take a look at the Bobcat, consider that all that tone and power comes to you in a 1x12 combo that weighs just 32 pounds!” The Bobcat is currently shipping with a street price of $1499.00.
Bobcat 5/100 features:
• Fat Switch - Add thickness and warmth to single coil bridge pickup. Add fullness at low volume levels (bedroom volume).
• Gain - Go from spanky clean, to crunch, to tweed style compression.
• Hi/Low Gain Switch - This is foot switchable and controls gain level from clean (sparkle), to crunch (soft breakup), to over-the-top (Hi Gain). When combined with the two channels of the Unleash section, the amp allows you to have 4 different tones from clean to mean!
• Bright Switch - Add top-end sweetness to a single coil neck pickup or attack to a humbucker.
• Out/In Switch - Controls the Bad Cat Unleash technology to be in or out of the circuit. When switched out, the Bobcat becomes a pure 5-watt, hand wired, class A amplifier. When switched in, the Bobcat becomes a 100-watt, snarling beast.
• Unleash - Two channel, foot switchable, 100-watt amplifier section. Each channel can be set with independent levels to be used as rhythm/lead, or clean/distortion or anything in-between.

DiMarzio, Inc. announces the Relentless P (DP299), the Relentless J Bridge (DP301), Relentless J Neck (DP300), and the Relentless J Pair (DP302) for 4 string basses.
DiMarzio, Inc. announces the release of the Relentless P (DP299), the Relentless J Bridge (DP301), Relentless J Neck (DP300), and the Relentless J Pair (DP302) for 4 string basses. The new Relentless P and Relentless J series pickups feature the Relentless cover designed in collaboration with Billy Sheehan.
As with the Relentless pickups, we removed all the hard edges from the standard P Bass and standard J Basspickups, and added an arch to the top of the pickups to bring the sensing coils and pole pieces closer to the strings. These improvements increase the dynamic range and make active circuitry unnecessary.
The Relentless P and Relentless J pickups incorporate Neodymium magnets and produce 70 percent more output than traditional passive pickups, and they’re dead quiet due to the incorporation of metal covers and foil-shielded cables. To dial in (or fine-tune) the individual string output, the Relentless P and Relentless J include eight adjustable pole pieces. These pickups also have a broad magnetic field so you can even bend notes without volume dropout.
DiMarzio’s extra shielding makes the Relentless P and Relentless J better for both recording and stage performances. We’ve mounted them onto robust .09375” thick circuit board base plates to eliminate the annoying protruding mounting screws — ultimately creating a more comfortable and consistent foundation to rest your fingers on.
The new Relentless P steps beyond the traditional P-Bass sound and can only be described as massive. It has more of everything: more volume, beefier lows, a growling midrange, and crispy highs with better individual string definition.
The Relentless J incorporates a new invention, (patent pending) parallelogram-shaped coils, offering an expanded mid-range punch, snappy highs, precise lows, and a new dimension to the sound of the Relentless series pickups.
Relentless P and Relentless J pickups will breathe new life into any bass, increase playability, and work well for any style of music from Motown to metal.
DiMarzio’s Relentless P, Relentless J Bridge, Relentless J Neck, and Relentless J pair are made in the U.S.A. and may now be ordered for immediate delivery.
Suggested List Price for the Relentless P is $169.00 (MAP $119.99).
Suggested List Price for the Relentless J Bridge and Relentless J neck is $155.00 (MAP $109.99).
Suggested List Price for the Relentless J Pair is $296.00 (MAP 209.99).

Featuring the Adaptive Circuitry recently introduced on their Halcyon Green Overdrive, Origin Effects have brought us a pedal with a character all of its own and a new flavor of drive.
Origin Effects introduce the new M-EQ DRIVER mid booster & drive pedal. Based on a vintage Pultec studio EQ, this unique pedal offers a range of mid-focused tones, from a subtle mid boost to thick, resonant overdrive. Featuring the Adaptive Circuitry recently introduced on their Halcyon Green Overdrive, Origin Effects have brought us a pedal with a character all of its own and a new flavor of drive.
A choice of three mid-range frequencies ensures that you can boost just the right part of your guitar signal and, when pushed harder, can elicit a range of saturation from a classic “mid-hump” overdrive to fierce “cocked wah” distortion. Thanks to the Adaptive Circuitry, the high-end roll-off of the Cut control is reduced as the pedal cleans up. This allows for a smooth transition from warm overdrive to bright clean tones in response to playing dynamics or guitar volume knob changes.
Introducing... M-EQ DRIVER || Mid Booster & Drive
Built-in the UK to the highest standards, the M-EQ DRIVER continues the Origin Effects tradition of vintage, studio-inspired tones in modern guitar pedals. The Origin Effects M-EQ DRIVER is available now from Origin Effects dealers worldwide.
RRP: 259 GBP (Inc VAT) / 319 USD (Ex TAX)
