Digital Audio Labs Introduces the Stompblox Riser and Extend

Extend is a dual-function extension for the Stompblox system that gives users an additional 4.5" of surface depth.

Chanhassen, MN (July 9, 2014) -- Hot on the heels of the successful launch of Stompblox modular pedalboards, Digital Audio Labs announces the first modular expansions to the Stompblox line--the Stompblox Riser and the Stompblox Extend. These two products connect to the Stompblox system expanding functionality and customization options.

Players with large pedalboards often find themselves reaching, stretching, or dancing to try to reach pedals in the back row of their pedalboard. Stompblox Risers snaps into Stompblox pedalboards, raising sections for easier access to pedals. Multiple risers can be used to raise a whole section of a pedalboard, or just one can be used to raise a single effect pedal. Up to three risers can be used with each Stompblox unit and convenient pass throughs make cable management easy.

Stompblox Extend is a dual function extension for the Stompblox system that gives users an additional 4.5" of surface depth for pedals while also housing nearly any power supply without drilling holes. A unique mounting system works with power supplies from Voodoo Labs, Modtone, Cioks, and others. And of course, Extend has plenty of pass throughs for cable management and routing.

Expected pricing for the Stompblox Riser is $8.99 and Stompblox Extend is $34.99. Both units will start shipping in September 2014.

The Stompblox modular pedalboard system including the Stompblox Riser and Stompblox Extend will be shown at the Digital Audio Labs booth #1236 at the Summer NAMM show in Nashville, TN.

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one. I showed up late to the archtop party, and it took a while to realize our pairing was atypical. I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
