Fuchs Audio Expands Plush FX Pedal Line With the Blues Flame, Phone Tone, and Double Plush

The Phone Tone is a simple pedal designed to emulate the telephone filter found in vintage studio gear.

Clifton, NJ (January 21, 2014) -- Fuchs Audio Technology is proud to introduce 3 new additions to its Plush FX Pedal line at the 2014 NAMM Show:

The “Blues Flame” is a blues voiced overdrive which features a smooth overdrive with plenty of adjustable gain on tap, high mid and low tone controls and a master volume. It cleans up well from the guitar, is extremely touch sensitive and designed for maximum sustain and note bloom. The circuit design features a low noise discrete FET front end and an output stage designed like a miniature power amplifier to provide amp-like feel and reaction to most subtle of picking and volume changes. $189.00 MAP

The “Phone Tone” is a simple pedal designed in cooperation with B.C. Kochmit of Eye Empire, to emulate the telephone filter found in vintage studio gear as well as in many studio plug-ins while on stage. While primarily made for guitar, the pedal can be patched through an insert point on a mixing console to use this effect on vocals or other instruments. The pedal is unity gain with a sharp filter slope, extremely low noise, and coloration. $179.00 MAP

“Double Plush” puts two fully independent channels of one of our most popular overdrive pedals under one high performance hood. Channel one has been tweaked for more gain and a more aggressive overdrive, while channel two is based on the highly successful original “Plush Drive” voicing. Premium parts, true bypass, and hand wiring make it sound as great as it looks! $ 249.00 MAP.

Like all Plush pedals, these pedals feature true-bypass, feature premium components and construction techniques optimized for the best tone and lowest noise. They feature battery or external power and all have five year warranty.

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.

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.
