Check out the latest and greatest gear from the first day of the 2014 Summer NAMM show.

Big Ear NYC brought the new Chaka octave fuzz to Summer NAMM. But rather than being silicon or germanium based, it actually derives its fuzz from two clipping LEDs. It can get super gnarly and nasty, yet the octave sound is a little more focused, controllable, and articulate than many vintage-style designs. $195 street.
