Greer Amps Introduces the Southland Harmonic Overdrive

The pedal features more gain, a focused midrange, and a bit of presence on top of the signal.

Athens, GA (September 24, 2014) -- We are happy to announce the release of a new product. The Southland Harmonic Overdrive is our newest offering, in the Greer Amps line. Building on the Lightspeed platform, we have developed what we believe to be the best overdrive on the market. The Lightspeed was built with the specific purpose of being a light to mild overdrive. The Southland is the next logical step for the Lightspeed platform—more gain, a focused midrange (not that annoying “hump”), and a bit of presence on top of the signal, to help cut through the mix. This pedal, like the Lightspeed, is touch sensitive, responds to pick attack, and has dynamics that just won’t stop. On top of that, we’ve selected a chip to drive the Southland that takes it to the next level.

The Southland is available for dealers to pre-order now. We will be officially releasing these, for shipping, and publishing them on our website on October 14, 2014. We will be building up a stockpile of these units, in hopes that we won’t get bogged down on the production side of things with the Southland.

This rare English Tonemaster was made circa 1957.

The Valco-produced English Tonemaster is a rare, lap-steel-inspired gem from the 1950s—when genres and guitar design were fluid.

The 1950s were a peculiar time for the electric guitar. Innovators, designers, and tinkerers were pushing the boundaries of the instrument, while musicians were experimenting with various playing techniques and sounds. There was an evolution of sorts (or de-evolution, depending on your slant) from solidbody “sit-down” guitars, like pedal and lap steels, to “stand-up” or “upright” solidbody electrics. If you look at an early Fender catalog—let’s say from 1953—you’ll see the Telecaster (and Esquire), the Precision Bass, and then a whole bunch of steel guitars. There was a shift underway, and many manufacturers began to blur the lines of what a guitar should look, sound, and play like.
