Perth, Australia (September 4, 2018) -- Ormsby Guitars, a pioneer in multiscale electric guitars, announces two new guitar models, the Metal X and Metal V, as well as a new Goliath headless model and a new humbucking pickup set, the Blizzard and Concordia.
The new Metal X and Metal V multiscale electric guitars are available in a variety of configurations, all featuring new Blizzard and Concordia pickups. The Metal V Pinstripe Limited Edition features a Mahogany body with Rock Maple set-neck construction, Ebony fingerboard, 24 Jumbo Stainless Steel frets and Luminlay side dots. The finish is Gloss White with Deep Blue Pearl pinstripes and a white-painted, satin-finished neck. Available in six string 25.5" - 27.5" Multiscale at an RRP of $1,849 AUD and seven-string 25.5" - 27.8" Multiscale at an RRP of $1,899 AUD.
Solid-coloured Matte Black versions of the Metal X and Metal V are also available at RRP $1.649 AUD for six-string and RRP $,1699 AUD for seven-string.
The Metal X GTR and Metal V GTR are both available in Multiscale Flame Top Exotic versions featuring Swamp Ash bodies with Premium Flame Maple tops, Laminated Rock Maple set necks, Ebony fingerboards, revised D-Shape necks (19.6mm @ 1st fret - 21mm @ 17th fret), 24 Jumbo Stainless Steel frets, Luminlay side dots, black hardware, custom Ormsby bridge and locking tuners, and Blizzard and Concordia pickups. Prices are RRP $1799 AUD for six-string and RRP $1849 AUD for seven-string. Colour options are Ice Tea, Double Blue, Dragon Burst and Dahlia Black. The Blizzard and Concordia pickups are designed to produce an updated take on the classic hard rock and metal tones of the early 80s. The Ceramic-loaded Blizzard is all about full-bodied rhythms, harmonically-charged leads and hefty palm-muted chugs with a little hair on the top end, while the Alnico 5 Concordia offers a complementary yet contrasting smooth, sustaining voice with an almost flute-like clarity. Both are available in six and seven-string versions.

Featuring the Adaptive Circuitry recently introduced on their Halcyon Green Overdrive, Origin Effects have brought us a pedal with a character all of its own and a new flavor of drive.
Origin Effects introduce the new M-EQ DRIVER mid booster & drive pedal. Based on a vintage Pultec studio EQ, this unique pedal offers a range of mid-focused tones, from a subtle mid boost to thick, resonant overdrive. Featuring the Adaptive Circuitry recently introduced on their Halcyon Green Overdrive, Origin Effects have brought us a pedal with a character all of its own and a new flavor of drive.
A choice of three mid-range frequencies ensures that you can boost just the right part of your guitar signal and, when pushed harder, can elicit a range of saturation from a classic “mid-hump” overdrive to fierce “cocked wah” distortion. Thanks to the Adaptive Circuitry, the high-end roll-off of the Cut control is reduced as the pedal cleans up. This allows for a smooth transition from warm overdrive to bright clean tones in response to playing dynamics or guitar volume knob changes.
Introducing... M-EQ DRIVER || Mid Booster & Drive
Built-in the UK to the highest standards, the M-EQ DRIVER continues the Origin Effects tradition of vintage, studio-inspired tones in modern guitar pedals. The Origin Effects M-EQ DRIVER is available now from Origin Effects dealers worldwide.
RRP: 259 GBP (Inc VAT) / 319 USD (Ex TAX)

The new finish, according to Lava Music, is “inspired by the beauty of the golden hour,” a shining time just before sunset and after sunrise when photographers covet to capture stunning pictures.
With bright and warm golden hues, the new finish adds a brilliant metallic glow to the surface of Lava ME 3, complementing its AirSonic 2 carbon fiber unibody which features L3 Preamp with FreeBoost 2.0, delivers industry-leading sounds by breakthrough acoustic technologies, and houses a multi-touch display powered by Lava-developed HILAVA system.
Speaking of the HILAVA system, Lava Music also added four new effects: Nebula, Desert Rose, Cassette, and Edge of Breakup. As unique as their names sound, they are very much different from what we normally know about effects. Programmed into the HILAVA system, each of the four is powered by the company’s latest ArctanDrive algorithm and incorporates effects like Pitch Shift, Delay, and Reverb. And every one of those incorporated sub-effects comes with various parameters that players can adjust to design unique, overdriven sounds by just tapping on the multi-touch display. That said, those effects enable users to play with overdriven tone on an acoustic-electric guitar without even plugging in any external gear.
