Rainger FX Announces the Dwarf Bleep Bass

An extreme version of their hugely popular Dwarf Bass mini-pedal.

London, UK (August 18, 2017) -- Rainger FX guitar pedals is releasing an extreme version of their hugely popular Dwarf Bass mini-pedal, adding the best of the bleep 8-bit sounding glitch weirdness first seen in the Dwarf Bleep pedal for guitarists.

Housed in their custom designed mini-pedal enclosure, the Dwarf Bleep Bass has all of the full-on fuzz ferocity of the Dr Freakenstein Fuzz, but with a low frequency enhancement for a bass. Utilizing the double sided pressure sensitive expression pad “Igor”, the final decay of a note can be degraded into rhythmical bleep meltdown, the speed adjusted by a trimpot through the baseplate, and pitch controlled in real-time by Igor.

Switch on the LFO modulation, and the bleeps’ pitch has a steady ‘80’s arcade game’ rise and fall; press on Igor and the modulation speed increases up to fast churning insanity!

Features:

  • Built-in noise gate
  • Igor – a unique pressure-sensitive expression pedal (dual sensitivity - use by foot or by hand)
  • Volume thumbwheel
  • Clean mix button (adds approximately 1/3 clean sound)
  • Internal ‘active/passive’ instrument switch
  • Rainger FX’s unique styling and mini-pedal enclosure (with no side sockets!)

The 20 Coolest Guitar Shops in the US, Vol. 1
"We asked PG readers what is the coolest guitar shop they've been to in the US. And while long-gone favorites like Manny's Music (New York) and Black Market Music (San Francisco) came up again and again, there were even more current shops topping readers' favorites list. We compiled the 20 most mentioned stores and quickly realized there were too many great photos we'd have to cut in order to get them all in one gallery. So here's the first installment in no particular order. If you're wondering where your favorite is, it may be coming next time, or we might not be aware of it, so feel free to leave your faves in the comments section."
