D’Addario Releases the Rich Robinson Signature Slide, Humidipak Restore Kit, and Titanium Bridge Pins
The slide features a custom interior taper made to Rich’s specifications and his signature Double-R logo.
Farmingdale, NY (February 17, 2017) -- The Humidipak Restore Kit by D’Addario allows your instrument and case that have previously not been humidified or are in a known dry condition to safely return to the ideal humidity level without danger of over-humidification.
Using Boveda’s patented two-way humidity control technology, Humidipak Restore packets automatically adds moisture at an accelerated rate yet safely restores the ideal humidity level inside your instrument case, eliminating the guesswork and anxiety of revitalizing your instrument. Once the instrument and case have reached 45-55% Relative Humidity, the standard Humidipak packets should be used.
The Humidipak Restore Kit includes three packets – one for the headstock and two for the soundhole.
The Humidipak Restore Kit (PW-HPK-03) will retail for $41.80 and is available April 17.
D’Addario Accessories is thrilled to announce the launch of the Rich Robinson Signature Brass Slide, a collaborative innovation made possible by teaming up with D’Addario artist Rich Robinson.
Founding member of the Black Crowes and solo artist, Rich Robinson is recognized as one of today’s top slide guitar players and is known for his use of open tunings. At home on both acoustic and electric guitar, Rich helped to design and create his signature brass slide with a unique taper inside that forms comfortably to your finger for any type of playing. This taper also helps prevent the slide from moving, giving the player extra control while performing and offering a crisp, bright, exceptional tone.
Made from solid brass, its satin finish features a custom interior taper made to Rich’s specifications and his signature Double-R initial logo laser etched.
The Rich Robinson Signature Brass Slide will be available April 17 and retail values at $32.95.

Created in collaboration with legendary guitarist George Lynch of Dokken and Lynch Mob fame, the Mr.Scary Mod adds an adjustable tube gain stage and an onboard Deep control, which together are designed to enable an amp to have increased sustain while still retaining note definition and dynamics.
LegendaryTones, LLC today announced production availability of its new Mr. Scary Mod, a 100% pure tube module designed to instantly and easily expand the capabilities of many classic amplifiers with additional gain and tone shaping. Created in collaboration with legendary guitarist George Lynch of Dokken and Lynch Mob fame, the Mr.Scary Mod adds an adjustable tube gain stage and an onboard Deep control, which together are designed to enable an amp to have increased sustain while still retaining note definition and dynamics.
Originally released as the Lynch Mod in February 2021, the updated Mr. Scary Mod features the same core circuit as the Lynch Mod but is now equipped with a revised tube mix combo per George’s preference as well as a facelift in a newly redesigned electro-galvanized steel enclosure. As with the Lynch Mod, each run will be limited and the first run in Pumpkin Orange with Black hardware is limited to just 150 pieces worldwide.
The Mr. Scary Mod adds an adjustable tube gain stage on top of the cathode follower position, keeping note definition and articulation while further increasing sustain. Each Mr. Scary mod is meticulously built by hand in the USA, one at a time, and tuned using high-grade components. Equipped with a single ECC81 (12AT7) in the first position and ECC83 (12AX7) in the second, the Mr. Scary Mod can clean up beautifully when rolling down your guitar’s volume, and still adds scorching gain when you roll it back up. This is a gain stage that’s been tuned and approved by the ears of the maestro George Lynch himself.
“The Mr. Scary Mod excels with dynamics and is incredibly touch-responsive, allowing me to shift from playing clear, lightly compressed cleans to full-out aggressive sustain and distortion –and control it all simply by varying my guitar’s volume control and picking,” said GeorgeLynch. “In many ways, it’s an old-school approach, but it’s also so much more natural and expressive in addition to being musically fulfilling when you can play both the guitar and amp dynamically together this way.”
The Mr. Scary Mod installs in minutes, is safe and effective to use, and requires no special tools or re-biasing of the amplifier. Simply insert the module into the cathode follower preamp position of compatible amplifiers (includes Marshall 2203/2204/1959/1987 circuits) and
immediately get the benefit of enjoying a hot-rodded amp that delivers all the pure harmonic character that comes with an added pure tube gain stage. The handmade in the USA Mr. Scary Mod is now available to order for $319.

October Audio has miniaturized their NVMBR Gain pedal to create two mini versions of this beautifully organic-sounding circuit – including an always-on gain device.
The NVMBR Gain is a nonlinear amp that transitions gracefully from clean boost to overdriven tones. Volume increases from just over unity to about 10db before soft-clipping drive appears for another 5db of boost. Its extraordinary ease of use is matched by outstanding versatility: you can use it as a clean boost, push a stubborn amp into overdrive or create a just-breaking-up sound at any amp volume.
October Audio’s new family of mini NVMBR Gain pedals includes a switchable version that allows you to bypass the effect: one option features brand logo pedal graphics, while the other sports a fun “Witch Finger” graphic with a Davies knob as the“fingernail”.
The second version in the new lineup is an always-on device featuring the Witch Finger graphic and Davies knob, with the same NVMBR Gain circuit that lies at the core of the switchable version.
- Knob controls gain and clipping simultaneously
- Stunning silver hammertone finish
- Switchable versions are true-bypass, available with classic or witch finger graphics
- Authentic Davies knobs, including the “fingernail”
- 9V center negative power supply required
- Dimensions: 3.63 x 1.50 x 1.88 in
Witch Finger (always on NVMBR Gain) demo
All October Audio pedals are assembled in Richmond, VA, and available for purchase directly through the online shop. Street price is $109 for NVMBR Gain footswitch versions and $89 for the always-on device.
