Clifton, NJ (Jan 11, 2012) The Iso-Pump accessory takes 9V DC and converts it to 12V, 18V, or 24V DC, selectable via an external switch. With the Godlyke Iso-Pump, pedals requiring 2 batteries, pedals with internal vacuum tubes, and many digital units can be powered directly off a 9-volt power supply such as the PA-9 Power-All, or any 9 VDC PSU outputting 1500 mA or greater. The IP-1 can also be used to get more headroom out of certain overdrives, distortions and fuzz pedals. The IP-1 features the proprietary “Ground Hound” ground isolation technology which allows use of pedals with opposing ground configurations to be powered off the same series power supply!

Street Price - $30.00

Using proprietary technology, the GH-1 Ground Hound creates an isolated ground connection for any effect device. Avoid ground loops, reduce line noise, and finally be able to power pedals with opposing ground configurations off the same series power supply! The Ground Hound allows Fuzz Face and ToneBender style fuzzes and other positive-ground pedals to work in conjunction with standard negative-ground pedals off the same power supply. The GH-1 can also reduce “cross-talk” noise from certain digital units with multiple ground planes.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.

Need an affordable distortion pedal? Look no further.

We live in the golden age of boutique pedals that are loaded with advanced features—many of which were nearly unthinkable a decade or so ago. But there’s something that will always be valuable about a rock-solid dirt box that won’t break your wallet. Here’s a collection of old classics and newly designed stomps that cost less than an average concert ticket.
