We close out the 2017 NAMM show with a look at gear from DigiTech, Santa Cruz, Hamer, and more.

Really excited about this: Z.Vex Effects has essentially taken the circuit from its experimental candle-powered Candela modulation unit, converted it to an optical cell-based circuit and unleashed it in a compact pedal called the Vibrophase. It's an elegant and very simple modulation machine, with just a rate control and a knob that moves from strictly vibrato to exclusively phase with many blends in between. A Vexter edition will be $199 and the hand painted version $319. Can't wait to spend some real time with this one!
