A built-in effects loop has been added and enables the user to insert other pedals between the two.

New York, NY (January 13, 2016) -- Electro-Harmonix has combined the Soul Food Transparent Overdrive and Nano POG Polyphonic Octave Generator in one powerful multi-effect. The Soul Food’s clean boost, enhanced touch response and added headroom make it a pedal many players never turn off. With its Drive and Volume controls turned up, the Soul Food will readily drive a tube amp into saturation while still retaining clarity and definition. The Nano POG builds on the legacy of EHX’s POG series of effects pedals to provide a polyphonic sub-octave and octave up with fault-free tracking and sound. The Soul Food and Nano POG retain all the controls each possesses as a standalone pedal and can be used independently or linked together with either appearing first in the chain.

A built-in effects loop has been added and enables the user to insert other pedals between the two. In addition, a new Mode Switch in the Nano POG lets the player select the algorithm used for the octave up sound. In one position, it is optimized for fast, single note playing while in the other the harmonic content of chords is enhanced. The Soul POG comes equipped with a standard EHX9.6DC 200mA power supply, has a U.S.A. List Price of $381.40 and is available now.

Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time. But since I seem to exist on a separate timeline than most folks, it was all news to me.
