Nexi Industries Introduces the Nexi Bass Pedalboard
The board features a built-in tuner with huge display and a 3-step clean boost.
Amsterdam (January 24, 2019) -- For bass players who have wished they could optimize their pedalboard in a couple of clicks without catastrophe, the dream has become a reality. New from Nexi Industries, makers of the award-winning The Solution pedalboard for electric guitar, the Nexi Bass powered pedalboard offers click-and-play convenience without sacrificing tone. With its sleek profile and smart design, Nexi Bass is the travel-friendly, gig-ready solution that many active bass players have been looking for.
The beauty of Nexi’s technology is that it eliminates worry about cables and power issues. With the Nexi Bass pedalboard, players will find everything they need in one package, including an internal power supply and up to 12V DC external output. Players can choose from Nexi’s excellent line of true-bypass analog bass effect pedals that easily click into the Nexi Bass pedalboard, or they may choose to hook up four of their own pedals using the ConNexi adapter, sold separately.
While the four-slot Nexi Bass is designed to take up less room, it’s packed with helpful features that many other pedalboards don’t include, like a built-in tuner with huge display and a 3-step clean booster. Nexi Bass also carries a built-in pre-amped DI with voice-balanced and unbalanced output. In the absence of a backline, the onboard voiced preamp gives players the option to go direct into a mixer without losing their analog sound.
Gone are the days of having numerous patch cables, 9V batteries that will run out of power during a gig, or multiple external power sources that complicate a stage setup or cause unwanted hum. With Nexi Bass, the ultimate powered bass pedalboard, players are free to be as creative as they want in their setup, even if it’s five minutes before the gig.
Nexi Industries will be exhibiting the Nexi Bass pedalboard and other innovations at The 2019 NAMM Show in the Anaheim Convention Center, booth #3534.

Nexi Industries Introduces Wah Pedal
An analog design that features a 100k ohm pot.
Amsterdam, Netherlands (March 21, 2017) -- It’s the classic wah that every modern-day electric guitarist needs in their collection, and now there’s a brand with a plug-and-play design that makes pedalboard compatibility easier than ever. NEXI Industries proudly introduces its analog wah (WWA-01) as the next great chapter of this pedal’s history, which spans 50 years.
Like many great innovations, the wah-wah effect for electric guitar started as a kooky idea in a California garage. It would take a visionary inventor—who appropriately spent his nights jamming with Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention—to take the pedal from the movie soundstage to the rock stage. "Burning of the Midnight Lamp" by the Jimi Hendrix Experience, one of the first recordings with the wah effect for electric guitar, was released in 1967. Two years later, Hendrix wailed with the wah live at Woodstock, and the rest is history. The effect has been heard in music for more than 50 years, from 1960s rock, '70s disco, '80s metal, and '90s grunge. And now in 2017, NEXI Industries unveils the next great innovation for the wah—a plug-‘n-play version that offers the same great sonic quality with a more convenient, electronically compatible design.
NEXI’s Wah was designed by the company’s boutique effect pedal creators, the self-declared “Vintage Analog Protection Squad,” who are committed to providing a unique tone without compromise. In fact, in true classic form, the ‘not so secret anymore” secret is that the NEXI Wah features a 100k ohm pot. All NEXI pedals are true bypass and hybrid, and all are tailor-made to plug ‘n play. That means the Wah can be used standalone with a 9V battery or plugged right into the external power supply of NEXI’s revolutionary pedal board. Aptly named “The Solution,” this heavy-duty board has a two-channel switch and three-step booster to satisfy every guitarist’s ego. It’s also equipped with covers that protect ports against dirt and beverage spills (splash-proof), a built-in tuner and power supply, and two charging docks for tablet or smartphone. Players can “wah” confidently, knowing that their board—and their effect pedal—are safe and sound.
Use the Wah to create that signature “crying” effect, without shedding one tear over the price tag. NEXI’s Wah is reasonably priced at MSRP $99.95.

Quick Hit: Nexi Industries ’70s Distortion Review
A distinctly modern design meets the iconic tones that defined classic rock.
There’s nothing particularly subtle—and rightly so—about the ’70s Distortion. With the knobs at noon, I found a somewhat narrow “sweet spot” that offered plenty of grit and gain, but not a wealth of tonal variety. The tone knob went from overly muddy to thin and nasally at the extreme settings, but offered a beefy clarity with settings somewhere in the middle. (Think Humble Pie’s live album.) And don’t even think this could somehow double as a clean boost. Besides, what evokes the era of classic rock more than thick, wooly gain?
Test gear: Gibson Les Paul Standard, Fender Telecaster, Fender Deville ML212
Hip modern design. Some righteous classic-rock tones.
Could use a more effective tone control.
€99.95 (approx. USD $105)
