A feature-filled pitch-shifting delay meant for maximum weirding.

Wide-ranging and unique functionality. Envelope settings and momentary switches lend extreme interactivity.

Steep learning curve. Stereo input/output is only via TRS stereo cable.


Red Panda Raster 2


You could call the Raster 2 a delay pedal with a pitch shifter and modulation, but that would set up inaccurate expectations about the pedal’s sound and function. Instead, like many modern algorithm-driven glitch pedals, the Raster provides a way of interacting with sound. In that way, the Raster 2 is as much synth as tone augmenter.

The 60+ guitars, amps, pedals, basses, and accessories that stood out from the crowd and earned our coveted Premier Gear Award this year.

Carr Telstar

This handwired 17-watt, 1x12 combo employs two familiar power tubes—a 6L6 and an EL84—to produce the presence and immediacy of a great Fender tweed, the thrilling sparkle of Vox overdrive, and a tighter, tougher bass response than you’d expect from a strictly vintage midsized combo. Telstar’s suave spring reverb, strong note fundamentals, articulate attack, and extraordinary touch response caused Joe Gore to exclaim, “I love this frickin’ amp.”

Though capable of chaotic violence, this granular delay is also ingenious, inspiring, and endlessly fun.



Many cool tones—and the means to control them. Fine sound quality. Good price.

Definitely not for-everyone.
