Clifton, NJ (January 10, 2012) -- Fuchs Audio Technology announces the Jersey Lightning designed for guitarists. Built to the same standards of all Fuchs pedals, Jersey Lightning provides buffering, gain boost and a three position EQ selector allowing for three different high frequency boost ranges in a small footprint enclosure. Controlled by two simple knobs: gain and boost and designed to be a modern Rangemaster style pedal, the pedal features low noise FET circuitry, true-bypass switching, premium jacks and passive components throughout, and like all Plush pedals it has a baked on silk screen and a powder coated finish and a 5 year warranty.

The Jersey Lightening is available for $ 179.95.

The Pedal Pusher is a unique pedal featuring two fully separate active low noise FET circuits, the Pedal Pusher can also be used with a single pedal or pedal board and acts as an input buffer and boost, as well as an output buffer and booster. This pedal allows a pedal board to be driven by a clean low impedance signal to increase the performance of overdrive and distortion pedals and reduce noise and the effect of pedal board wiring, jacks and connectors. Each gain stage has its own level control, which is bypassed by a footswitch allowing a preset boost for soloing. On both the input and output ends the Pedal Pusher provides a low impedance buffered output with a footswitch activated solo boost. This allows long cable runs without losses in tone, and a boost to drive amp input stages harder. The Pedal Pusher can also be used as a series effects loop for amps with passive loops, with separate send and return level controls, a high impedance input (1-meg) and a low impedance output (1-K). The Pedal Pusher features premium jacks and passive components throughout, and like all Plush pedals it has a baked on silk screen and a powder coated finish and a 5 year warranty.

The Pedal Pusher is available for $ 249.95.

A lot of you have been waiting for this penultimate step of our guitar aging project, so let’s do some damage!

Welcome back to Mod Garage. Today we’ll continue to work on our aging project, and some of you might be wondering why there was such a long break. The reason is simple: suboptimal timing from my side. The last part of this column was in the middle of autumn, and I wanted you to do the following steps outside (if possible) and not on the kitchen table. Wintertime is not the best time for such a challenge but now is a good starting point, so let’s go!

Luthier Dave Helmer shows you how to cure buzzy strings, bad intonation, gnarly frets, high action, and other common troubles with off-the-shelf axes.

Guitars are the best. We love them. It’s fun to fall in love with a guitar at a store, buy it, and proudly bring it home. But we’ve all been there … where after a month that new guitar is just not playing as good as it was before. As guitar players, we know what feels good and what feels bad when it comes to playability. Maybe you have setup preferences that you like on all your guitars, or maybe you want to experiment with changes to your setup?
