A mini power amp/cab sim pedal that features a wealth of features.

Santiago, Chile (November 2, 2018) -- DSM Noisemaker, the Chilean boutique pedal company, announced the upcoming release of its new OmniCabSim Mini pedal, which is the little brother to their well-established cabinet simulator, OmniCabSim Deluxe.

The new pedal is highly practical and packed with many features including an easy-to-use layout. Its small package fits on any pedalboard, especially those with less real estate available. OmniCabSim Mini´s prominent controls consist of: Texture (High response), Cab Size and Resonance, allowing the user to create a wide, creative range of cabinet tones in just seconds.

The Cab Size switch options are Combo and Stack for guitar use, while Fridge is selected for bass use to get that tight and punchy low-end response for any situation or style.

The Texture control allows you to fine-tune the high frequency response of the virtual cabinet, which goes from super dark to extended range sparkle. On middle positions, the warmth and rich overtones of distortions are superbly voiced by its carefully designed filters.

But that’s not all. According to company founder, Daniel Schwartz, “This is really a miniature Power Amp + Cabinet combo. The Amp Gain knob emulates the complex overdrive characteristics of tube power amps. Crank it up and you get the smooth clipping, compression and extra midrange bite of a loud amp taken to its limits. Not only will you get the right frequency response to play direct, but you can get the right ‘feel’, too.”

OmniCabSim Mini features a Balanced DI XLR output for low noise, direct performances, and a 1/4-inch output jack that can be set as a through or effected output.

While OmniCabSim Mini will be available in stores in December, 2018, DSM Noisemaker is offering a pre-order discount on their website until November 20, 2018. More information is available at: http://www.dsmnoisemaker.com.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
