A wrap up of the final day of NAMM 2015.

Holy EHX Batman! Electro-Harmonix had a slew of new stompbox candy to share at NAMM 2015 including the Deluxe Electric Mistress flanger, Super Pulsar stereo tap tremolo, C9 Organ Machine, B9 Organ Machine, Holy Grail Neo reverb, Octavix fuzz and octave-up effect, Bad Stone phase shifter, Good Vibes modulator, and the Bass Soul Food overdrive.

A smart, potent boost that’s much more than meets the eye.

A well-built and truly great-sounding boost/line-driver pedal boasting a handful of clever bonus functions.

Some buyers might find it a little pricey.

$199

Source Audio nicknamed the new ZIO pedal “the Better Box,” which is a fair summation of what this thing will do for your tone. Purists may rant endlessly about the virtues of plugging straight into an amp. But many legendary players understood that a little extra “hot” between guitar and amp can add up to magic. From Jimmy Page’s Echoplex preamp to Brian May’s Rangemaster to Angus Young’s Schaffer-Vega wireless system, a lot of signature sounds have been shaped with a little extra kick—and often from unexpected sources that are something other than simple boosts. Source Audio’s first all-analog pedal is more than a conventional booster, too. And, to some degree, it celebrates these alternate paths to boosting tone.
