orange acoustic pedal

Orange Amplification are pleased to announce the launch of the new Acoustic Pedal. This do-it-all, compact pre-amp pedal has been designed and built using all the company's know-how from the acclaimed Acoustic Pre TC preamp and the Crush Acoustic 30 amplifier.


Doyle Dykes REVIEWS the Orange Acoustic Pedal

The pedal's low-noise JFET circuit design guarantees low levels of background noise, without hiss, whilst still maintaining super-high headroom for a clean, clear acoustic tone. Its powerful, notch controlled EQ is precise and unassuming, allowing players to subtly sculpt their sound and tackle feedback. The fixed Bass and Treble knobs provide control of the 'body' and 'sparkle' of an instrument, whilst the highly-transparent, buffered FX Loop offers acoustic players the perfect signal chain for enviable loopers, reverbs and delays.

The pedal can be connected directly to a P.A with its balanced XLR output and can be used simultaneously with the additional 1/4' mono jack for the ultimate flexibility.

The Orange Acoustic Pedal is a single ended, Class A, Acoustic Preamp, with a Full Parametric Midrange / Notch Filter and a Buffered FX Loop…….. total tonal control, low noise and ultra-transparent.

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.
