Lunastone Launches Four New Pedals

The new stomps cover fuzz and distortion, as well as two subtle overdrives.

Copenhagen, Denmark (February 5, 2018) -- The Danish pedal company that has specialized in tube-like overdrive, expands the range and flavors of true dirt pedals at NAMM 2018 with four new pedals, covering fuzz and distortion, as well as two more subtle overdrives.

These new pedals are expected to hit guitar shops worldwide during the Spring of 2018 at an expected retail price of approx. $199 / €199.

“Many guitarists already know what our TrueOverDrive concept sounds like. So, please hold that thought, as we're now broadening the palette significantly by adding new flavors in both directions," says Lunastone founder and Head Engineer Steen Grøntved. "But very importantly, while we're now adding 4 new new dirt tracks to the Lunastone Grand Tour, we never left our philosophy on what great tone is. Not for a second!"

Red Ruzz 1: This hot-tempered baby is a screaming Hendrix-style Fuzz pedal, but with a sizzling almost synthesizer-like tone to it as well.

Distortion 1: This is a dedicated hard rock-style pedal resembling the classic tone of iconic shredders such as Eddie Van Halen.

Blue Drive 1: Delicious and crunchy tone that is more focused on the meticulous details of the slightly gained range than simply adding maximum amounts of gain.

Smooth Drive 1: This is one silky and smooth drive pedal that offers just a little edge. But make no mistake. A little edge this tasteful can go a very long way and will often make all of the difference!

The 4-day event will feature clinics and performances hosted by guitar stars Tosin Abasi, Guthrie Trapp, Brent Mason, Mark Lettieri, Greg Koch, and more.

Here’s a different way to unleash the beast within your tracks.

Welcome to another Dojo. Last month I explained in detail how to set up and use sidechain compression techniques to get that classic pop/EDM pumping sound on your rhythm guitar parts and other instruments in your mix. This time, we’ll use the same setup techniques but, instead of sidechaining a compressor, I’m going to show you the benefits of using a gate.
