The pedal uses stacked op-­amps in order to achieve excellent touch sensitivity and amp-like response.

Leesburg, VA (June 2, 2016) -- Leona Amplification presents a cool new flavor with a remarkably musical and dynamic overdrive pedal called Sugar & Spice. What makes Sugar & Spice unique in comparison with other light-to-medium overdrive pedals is use of stacked op­amps in order to achieve excellent touch sensitivity and amp-like response. The midrange voicing switch gives you the choice between flat and accented mid frequencies. This pedal has a wide range of gain while still remaining musical. Tones available on tap go from a light bluesy drive up to a searing rock lead. Sugar & Spice Overdrive is a stand out pedal for blues, rock or fusion styles of music. It performs great both with single-coils or humbuckers.

$160 MSRP

The jump between analog and digital gear has never been more manageable. It no longer takes a rack full of outboard gear with a six-figure price tag to help realize not only the tone you have in your head, but the expansive workflows that started to pop up in the early ’80s. We’re now about a decade into the modern era of digital modelers and profilers and it seems like the technology has finally come into its own. “This is really the first time in a while where you can have bar bands playing the exactsame gear as stadium acts,” says Cooper Carter, a Fractal Audio Systems production consultant who has done sound design and rig building for Neal Schon, James Valentine, John Petrucci, and others.
