Gear of the Year 2017

Another year, another dazzling parade of pedals, guitars, amps, modelers, and accessories that made our noggins spin.


JAM Delay Llama Supreme

Powered by a new-production bucket brigade delay chip, JAM’s Llama Supreme analog delay combines vintage tone with modern features, including tap tempo with switchable subdivisions, controller pedal connectivity, an adjustable LFO oscillator, a low-pass tone knob, a variable Q control, and a hold function. If you’re looking to craft wild new variations on a classic color, you’ll love the Llama’s expanded sonic repertoire.
