A mid/high-gain overdrive with a parametric equalizer inspired by the legendary Ampeg V4.

Tijuana, B.C., México (March 7, 2018) -- Here comes a new challenger! Paradox unveils a pedal crafted from the legendary V4 amplifier. The Terran is far from your conventional overdrive and is designed with versatility in mind.

The Terran is a mid/high-gain overdrive with a parametric equalizer inspired by the legendary Ampeg V4. Using an active midrange filter to re-voice your tone, open a wide range of sonic possibilities emulating different types of guitar pick-ups, or different tube amp voices taking you to an ocean of textures.

The Terran highlights include:

  • Active Midrange filter (up to 15db).
  • Resonance control (Q).
  • Selectable bandwidth (700 Hz, 1 kHz, 1.5 kHz).
  • Fine tune with passive Bass and Treble EQ.
  • Germanium Diode Clipping.
  • Unique tone stack inspired by the Ampeg V4.

Handmade by non-replicant individuals in the border town of Tijuana. The Terran starts shipping March 2018, with a street price of $170.00, available at selected dealers or at www.paradoxeffects.com

Switching between contrasting reverb voices doubles the fun.

Smart, versatile, interactive and rangeful controls. Intuitive. Capable of great contrasts between A/B presets. Sturdy enclosure. Effective damping controls tame twee high-octave overtones.

Can’t switch reverb voices as you switch presets. Enclosure is big relative to depth of functionality. No-fun styling.


Fender Dual Marine Layer


Fender and reverb go together like gumbo and rice. Historically, the spring tanks in the company’s amplifiers and tube-driven outboard units have defined the Fender reverb sound. But in 2018, when Fender released the Marine Layer digital reverb, it did not include a spring reverb emulation. The new Dual Marine Layer doesn’t have a spring emulation either. Instead, it’s brimming with sounds and functions well-suited for less retro-reverb expressions, including thick chorus textures and shimmer reverb, and has a soft-relay sustain switch that enables momentary creation of ambient beds. It’s also capable of some very classy, subdued reverb colors, plus a few that can effectively stand in for spring and plate sounds in a pinch.
