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

JHS Pedals brought the new Emperor analog chorus/vibrato to Summer NAMM. Outfitted with "bucket-brigade" chips, it aims to serve up sounds ranging from classic Arion-style chorus to Uni-Vibe-like tones via a mode switch and a three-position waveform toggle. Unique features include tap-tempo, a wide-ranging gain knob, and the ability to control rate with an external continuous controller pedal.
