The new offerings aim to hit everything from Dumble-style overdrive to classic analog phase tones.
Montreal, Canada (January 31, 2019) -- Montreal-based effects pedal company Outlaw Effects will introduce a foursome of new guitar pedals at the 2019 NAMM Show.
Dumbleweed Overdrive is inspired by one of the most sought-after (and expensive) sounds in rock & roll: the D-style American tube amp. Like the amps that inspired it, Dumbleweed gives you a complete, dynamic range of drive tones, from subtle break-up to robust, fuzzy dirt. Standard Gain, Tone and Volume controls let you dial in your drive tone with precision, while a Voice knob adds an extra dimension of control, allowing you to darken or brighten the overall color of your tone. MSRP: $67.00
The General Germanium Fuzz marches you back in time a few decades, delivering the warm, vintage fuzz tones of a late 60's- era germanium transistor-based pedal. Despite its minimalist control layout, The General covers a range of retro fuzz sounds. At higher Fuzz settings, you can get into darker, more sustained/compressed tones which are still smoother than what you'd get from a more modern, silicon-based fuzz pedal. Lower Fuzz settings offer more subtle dirt, putting you into Texas Blues territory. The General is also responsive to your guitar's volume level: dial back your volume knob for a cleaner sound whose bite is a little more understated. MSRP: $67.00
Phunnel Cloud Phaser enhances your tone with a classic, analog phase shifting modulation effect. Adding a dynamic, sweeping dimension to your signal for increased depth and warmth, this vibrant effect is at home across a wide array of musical styles. With Phunnel Cloud, you can go from discreet shimmer to more dramatic, rapidly sweeping effects. A voicing toggle switch lets you choose between a warm, rich, mid 1970's-era sound (THEN), and a more modern setting (NOW) that offers a fuller, cleaner, more dramatic effect. MSRP: $67.00
Late Riser Auto Volume Swell is Outlaw's take on a hard-to-find, but still sought-after effect. The pedal operates like a noise gate in reverse, silencing the attack of your signal and gradually bringing it up to volume. In doing so, Late Riser can create violin or pedal steel-like swells, reproducing the sound of quickly rolling your guitar's volume knob or engaging a volume pedal. The simple, two-knob control layout lets you adjust the characteristic of the swells. The Rise control adjusts the amount of time it takes for the input signal to swell from silence to full volume, while Shine (aka Sensitivity) controls how sensitive the pedal is to picking dynamics. At lower Shine settings, a more distinct pick/attack is required to trigger the effect. Late Riser also includes a Saved Mode feature, allowing you to call up a favorite setting with a quick double-tap of the footswitch - regardless of how the controls are set. MSRP: $100.00
Like all Outlaw Effects, these four new pedals feature true bypass switching to maintain the purity of the player's clean tone. Each is housed in a micro-sized durable aluminum alloy chassis, and features a staggered input/output design for a minimum footprint.
All four new pedals will begin shipping to North American dealers in March 2019.

Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters are designed to offer a fat midrange and a smooth top end.
Billy Corgan was looking for something for heavier Smashing Pumpkins songs, so Joe Naylor designed the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One pickup. Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters have a fat midrange and a smooth top end. This pickup combines the drive and sustain of a humbucker with the percussive attack and string clarity of a P90. Get beefy P90 tone plus amp-pummeling output with the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One.
Patented Railhammer Pickups take passive guitar pickups to a new level with rails under the wound strings lead to tighter lows, and poles under the plain strings offer fatter heights. With increased clarity, the passive pickup’s tone is never sterile.
