Electro-Harmonix Announces Neo Mistress Flanger

A compact pedal which delivers the lush flanging EHX is famous for at a ground-breaking price.

Anaheim, CA (January 14, 2011)— Electro-Harmonix introduces the Neo Mistress Flanger, a compact pedal which delivers the lush flanging EHX is famous for at a ground-breaking price.

True to the classic Electric Mistress, the Neo Mistress provides an array of precisely notched and tuned filters that sweep the sound spectrum. With a straight forward design featuring Rate and Feedback controls, the pedal provides a startling variety of flanged sounds ranging from subtle to ultra-thick and extreme. Filter Matrix disengages the automatic sweep, allowing manual control of the filter bank to achieve chime-like metallic tones.

Housed in a solid die-cast package, with true bypass and a 4.37″ long by 2.37″ wide footprint, the Neo Mistress is pedalboard ready. It is equipped with a 9V battery and can also be powered by a standard 9.6Volt/DC200mA AC adapter. The new Electro-Harmonix flanger will begin shipping in early March 2011 with a U.S. list price of $109.80.

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

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.

A modern take on Fullerton shapes and a blend of Fender and Gibson attributes strikes a sweet middle ground.

A stylish alternative to classic Fender profiles that delivers sonic versatility. Great playability.

Split-coil sounds are a little on the thin side. Be sure to place it on the stand carefully!


Fender Player Plus Meteora HH


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.
