The X series covers all techniques while retaining superior dynamics.

Santa Rosa, CA (January 30, 2009) -- EMG Inc has released a new line of high-output guitar and bass pickups for all styles of playing – The X Series. Here's the word from EMG:





These pickups have an exceptional organic nature to their overall sound due to a newly designed internal pre-amp, which allows for more gain to come from your amp and instrument, rather than from the pre-amp. The effect of this new design is to provide more headroom and overall body while still maintaining the clarity and response that EMGs are renowned for. Lows will be rock solid, high-mids will cut through like the sharpest knife and the treble will be sweet and never grating on the ears. So if you are going for chunky low-string riffing or want screaming string bends in the high register, the X series covers all techniques while retaining superior dynamics. The EMG X Series is only available at authorized EMG dealers and street prices will range from $95 (SA-X) to $185 (PJ-X and J-X).

Walrus Audio Slötvå


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.
