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. 

Street Price - $30.00

Flexible filtering options and a vicious fuzz distinguish the Tool bass master’s signature fuzz-wah.

Great quality filters that sound good independently or combined. Retains low end through the filter spectrum. Ability to control wah and switch on fuzz simultaneously. Very solid construction.

Fairly heavy. A bit expensive.

Options for self-expression through pedals are almost endless these days. It’s almost hard to imagine a sonic void that can’t be filled by a single pedal or some combination of them. But when I told bass-playing colleagues about the new Dunlop Justin Chancellor Cry Baby—which combines wah and fuzz tuned specifically for bass—the reaction was universal curiosity and marvel. It seems Dunlop is scratching an itch bass players have been feeling for quite some time.

Playing in the pocket is the most important thing in music. Just think about how we talk about great music: It's "grooving" or "swinging" or "rocking." Nobody ever says, "I really enjoyed their use of inverted suspended triads," or "their application of large-interval pentatonic sequences was fascinating." So, whether you're playing live or recording, time is everyone's responsibility, and you must develop your ability to play in the pocket.
