A one-knob pedal that emulates classic spring reverb tones.

Nashville, TN (May 28, 2015) -- J. Rockett Audio Designs has announced the second product release of the long awaited Tour Series line. The Tour Series is comprised of all new products designed with the influence of a host of top Nashville and LA touring artists to address their needs on the road.

The collaboration began with the release of the J. Rockett Audio Designs Archer Boost/OD and now follows up with the new BOING Spring Reverb.

BOING is a very simple single knob reverb designed to emulate the classic reverbs of past. BOING remains true to the “less is more” philosophy behind the Tour Series line. BOING makes it beyond simple, just like it used to be, to get a great spring reverb sound that cuts through the mix and inspires you.

In contrast to most reverb pedals BOING uses a simple approach aiming at recreating amp reverb and not studio reverb. This approach helps BOING stand out in a live environment just like a classic amp reverb.

BOING recreates a very “signature” reverb tone extremely accurately and more importantly captures the true feel. BOING Spring reverb carries a $159.00 street price.

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one. I showed up late to the archtop party, and it took a while to realize our pairing was atypical. I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
