Sitek Phasia

A multi-stage phaser with tap tempo, selectable waveforms, and more.

Sitek Guitar Electronics introduces a new addition to their line of "Sound Muses" pedals. Phasia is a multi-stage OTA-based Phaser with a versatile feature set. It combines an all-analog moving filter section and a modern, tap-tempo controllable LFO that can go from stationary and resonant to fast and swirly.

Alongside 4 easy and intuitive controls, Phasia offers a choice of 4, 5 or 6 filter stages affecting the overall voicing and style of phasing effect. The pedal has a three way toggle LFO Shape switch to select between three different waveforms: hypertriangular, sine and triangular, which affects the character of modulation The Feedback control allows you to dial in anything from warm vintage sweeps to vibrant resonant phase tone. You can stretch the sonic possibilities even more with the Symmetry knob which provides a whole range of unique tones. All of these features make Phasia a comprehensive modulation effect.

The pedal is complemented by its original artwork and beautiful Oceanic Cerulean Blue enclosure finish.

Walrus Audio Slötvå


Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time. But since I seem to exist on a separate timeline than most folks, it was all news to me.
