A dead-simple noise gate that offers three different modes.
Manchester, England (March 16, 2020) -- Manchester-based boutique pedal brand Stone Deaf FX introduces the Noise Reaper professional noise gate. Designed for line level instruments, guitars, and basses, the Noise Reaper has evolved from our noise gate technology within our Warp Drive and Fig Fumb high-gain distortion and fuzz pedals. Tried and tested for many years in these applications with added improvements controlling unwieldy feedback and signal sources, be sure that this is one of the best noise gates on the market.
Often overlooked as a pedal category and associated with heavier styles of playing, Stone Deaf believes they are about to change all of this with the “Noise Reaper”. Tested with various styles of playing and numerous amplifiers the speed of the noise gate and the ability to adjust the threshold per style is perfect for making your tone crystal clear of any hiss, noise or hum from your amplifier or pedal chain.
The pedal consists of a “Threshold” control knob which enables you to control how much the gate opens allowing for the dynamics you want to shine through. The pedal works by taking the input sensitivity of the guitar input and the noisy signal source and comparing the two which enables you to gate unwanted noise but still be able to sustain notes if playing lead guitar sections. The LED indicates if the noise gate is on or off and it has a high-quality soft touch relay based true bypass footswitch / circuit.
What makes the “Noise Reaper” different to the main competition is the fact it can be used in 3 modes and doesn’t require a Y splitter. It has an incredibly fast and responsive gate function allowing you to sustain notes and clean up modulation pedal repeats when using noisy amps or gain pedals but without the choking or over gating effect that can often choke sustained notes or delay repeats.
The pedal uses a high quality VCA which is the THAT Corporation 2181C for this application giving transparent ultra-low distortion and high dynamic range to keep your tone sounding absolutely fantastic.
The “Noise Reaper” can operate in “Pedal” mode and “Series FX Loop” mode. You can use two Noise Reapers for absolute silence should you need to as a 3rd mode called Double up where you double up the dynamic range of the gating function.
- THD: 0.03%
- Dynamic Range: 120dB
- Output Noise: 0% or -98dB
- Power 9v Centre Negative
Stone Deaf believes for too long the noise gate category has been dominated by overpriced offerings by the market leaders so with a reasonable price of £150 / $160 / €162 they are looking to shake that category up with this exceptional offering.

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.
