The pedal features two simultaneous, independent, stereo reverb engines, series and parallel control for the dual reverbs, 24 presets, and advanced I/O.

New York, New York (February 27, 2020) -- Electro-Harmonix introduces the Oceans 12 featuring two simultaneous, independent, stereo reverb engines, series and parallel control for the dual reverbs, 24 presets and advanced I/O allowing for stereo in/out, splitting reverbs to left and right channels, or mono send/return with pre and post reverb options. The pedal also includes a new Tide Control for stereo image alteration, a Lo-fi Control, an infinite attenuation control and an input jack for external expression and footswitch control.

Features:

  • ROOM – two modes: reverb algorithms modeled after a lively room and a spacious performance hall
  • SPRING – two modes: vintage 1962 Fender 6G15 tube reverb emulation and the spring algorithm from the EHX Holy Grail
  • PLATE – two modes: two emulations of the smooth, metal plate reverb often used in high-end recording studios during the 1960s and ‘70s
  • REVERSE – two modes: a reverse reverb effect as well as true reversed echoes
  • ECHO ¬¬– three modes: a digital delay with various echo rhythms feeding into a plate reverb
  • TREM – three modes: a classic, periodic volume envelope with various shapes applied to both the wet and dry mix of a hall reverb
  • MOD – three modes: combinations of chorus and flange reverbs that create rich reverb tails
  • DYNA – three dynamic, experimental reverb algorithms: swell, gate and duck
  • AUTO-INF – three modes: auto-infinite reverb (w/optional chorus or flange) that “listens” to your playing and crossfades to a new reverb wash upon detection of newly struck notes.
  • SHIMMER – two modes: two configurations of a rich octave-shifted reverb wash
  • POLYPHONIC – two modes: two configurable bi-directional pitch shifts that add dimensionality to the reverb tail
  • RESONANT – two modes: reverb excited by tunable resonators and configurable self-oscillating filters on the reverb tail

A Tails switch provides a choice of whether the reverb effect fades out naturally or stops immediately when the pedal is switched to bypass. In most settings the pedal is also capable of producing infinite reverb which can be played over with a different reverb effect.

The Oceans 12 comes equipped with a standard EHX 9.6DC200mA power supply, is available now and features a U.S. List Price of $237.60

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.

A blind horse wouldn’t be impressed, but this beautiful, double-horned instrument with one-of-a-kind engravings helped make luthier Tony Zemaitis famous.

Though they never reached the commercial success of some of their peers, the Faces have no doubt earned a place as one of the seminal rock ’n’ roll bands of the late ’60s and early ’70s. Combining influences as varied as instrumental funk à la the Meters, traditional folk music, and a heavy dose of rhythm and blues, the Faces brand of rock ’n’ roll can be heard in some way or another in the music of countless bands that followed. After the Faces folded in 1975, all five members went on to continue making great music, but their chemistry together was undeniable.
