Nose Pedal Unveils the Quad Box and Expression Stomp

The company offers small, compact, and even passive pedals that optimize your pedalboard and help you gain more versatility from your other stompboxes.

Franklin/Nasvhille, TN (September 19, 2012) – Nose Pedal has introduced the Quad Box and Expression Stomp to a steadily growing product line. The company, first launched in early 2011, has quickly grown online using an unusual approach: instead of starting out with effect pedals, Nose Pedal has gained popularity with its utility pedals. The company offers small, compact, and even passive pedals that optimize your pedalboard and help you gain more versatility from your other stompboxes.

Nose Pedal offers a wide variety of models ranging from expression controllers, volume pedals, multiple true bypass loopers, line switchers, and more. These pedals are all built, wired, and painted by hand so that every pedal has a unique touch and place with its owner – and with super affordable prices starting at just $29.99. The Quad Box and Expression Stomp share the signature traits of other Nose Pedal products.

Expression stomp features:
• For the Expression Stomp, choose TS or TRS expressions along with all the cosmetic features- LEDs, enclosure color, and knob color!
• By dialing in the values with the knobs, the Expression Stomp will quickly swtich between any expression setting- great for using with the Line 6 DL4!

Quad Box details:
• The Quad Box features four expression connections. Two TS for Line 6 and Eventide products, and two TRS for Boss, Electro Harmonix, and most other brands.
• With two large control knobs, you’ll have no problem switching between pedals and controlling the expressions with your foot.

Pick up a Nose Quad Box for $89.99, or the Nose Expression Stomp starting at $59.99. Check out the NosePedal.com website to see demo videos, read about the quality of parts and sound, and learn about the creative hand-crafted joy that goes into each pedal.

My years-long search for the “right” Bigsby-outfitted box finally paid off. Now how do I make this sumbitch work in my band?

Considering the amount of time I’ve spent (here and elsewhere) talking about and lusting after Gretsch hollowbody guitars, it’s taken me a remarkably long time to end up with a big Bigsby-outfitted box I truly love. High-end Gretsches are pricey enough that, for a long time, I just couldn’t swing it. Years ago I had an Electromatic for a while, and it looked and played lovely, but didn’t have the open, blooming acoustic resonance I hoped for. A while later, I reviewed the stellar Players Edition Broadkaster semi-hollow, and it was so great in so many ways that I set my sights on it, eventually got one, and adore it to this day. Yet the full-hollowbody lust remained.
