The Verbrator, Pure Gain Plus and Noxious join the Plush lineup of pedals.

Clifton, NJ (December 29, 2008) -- Plush FX Pedals, a division of Fuchs Audio Technology, has announced the introduction of three new pedals to their growing FX Pedal line at the 2009 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, California mid-January.


“The Verbrator” combines an all tube effects loop with a studio grade 24-bit digital reverb in a compact pedal size package! While it runs on a 9-V adaptor, a switching power supply runs the tube on the proper high voltages that tubes crave. It can be used as an effects loop (for amps with passive loops), adding a reverb to non reverb amps, as well as being a reverb pedal. A truly unique product. MSRP $379

Pure Gain Plus

”The Pure Gain Plus” combines two of our ultra-quiet Pure Gain modules with an A/B box. When used with two guitars it allows you to both boost or buffer and match their levels. When used with a single guitar, it will provide bypass and two distinct gain and/or buffer settings. MSRP $279

The “Noxious” pedal is the Nick Catanese (Black Label Society and SpeedX) signature pedal. This pedal has a full complement of amp style controls: gain, high-mid-low, and master volume. It provides the kind of organic high-gain searing metal drive and amp-like feel that a player of Nick’s caliber deserves, and rock/metal players will covet. Nick will be appearing at Fuch's NAMM Booth all four days to do demonstrations, as well as to sign a limited number of pedals. MSRP $249

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

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one. I showed up late to the archtop party, and it took a while to realize our pairing was atypical. 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.
