Step inside Premier Guitar’s magical, miraculous time machine and revisit the gear that stood head and shoulders above the rest as Premier Gear Award winners in 2018.


Pigtronix Mothership 2

With its P-Funk associations, the name Mothership is appropriate for this analog guitar-synth pedal. Its punchy lead lines and humungous bass tones are perfect for funky groove parts, and though its synth colors are seldom pretty or dreamy, you could take these tones in atmospheric directions using downstream reverb, delay, and modulation pedals. Far closer to Bernie Worrell than to Brian Eno, this small pedal is full of big sounds.
