Genzler Amplification Unveils the re/Q EQ Pedal

GENZLER AMPLIFICATION proudly announces the addition of a second bass effect pedal, the re/Q pedal, born from the "redux collaboration" that brings Jeff Genzler and engineer Andy Field back together again -- developing a new line of bass effect pedals under the GENZLER AMPLIFICATION brand.


The GENZLER AMPLIFICATION pedal line will explore a variety of pedal concepts based on Jeff and Andy's decades of collaboration together, looking back into hundreds of pages of their old design ideas, and to explore interesting circuits that were started but never used, blending them with new innovations. A retrospective of sorts, this is a chance to dig into their collective pasts to develop what they feel players would use and appreciate, going forward.

And now, the introduction of the companies second model in the line ---- the re/Q -- DUAL FUNCTION EQ PEDAL.

This pedal is a low noise, ALL ANALOG multi-function HIGH PASS FILTER – LOW PASS FILTER and 5 BAND EQ pedal that gives the player complete tonal control over the cut-off of the extreme low and high frequencies, plus 5 bands of peak-dip equalization. The filter section is foot switched independently from the EQ section, and there is additional make-up gain or cut of 9dB after the EQ for balancing of levels or to act as an additional boost/cut function when the EQ is switched into the signal path. This is essentially 2 pedals in one.

The re/Q is an important tool for any player's gear requirements, a "Swiss Army Knife" for tonal needs. As well, it is a great companion to the companies first pedal the 4 ON THE FLOOR Classic Overdrive. It can be used to tailor your instrument's tone for various overdrive settings, or increased boost levels for any of the overdrive's 4 gears.

The re-Q-PEDAL is also an excellent compliment to the companies MAGELLAN 350 and MAGELLAN 800 Bass amps.

The re/Q-PEDAL will start shipping mid November 2021, and USA MAP is $244.99.

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.
