The Year in Gear 2019

The 60+ guitars, amps, pedals, basses, and accessories that stood out from the crowd and earned our coveted Premier Gear Award this year.
Korora Audio SpiraFifty-five years ago, renowned cognitive psychologist Roger Shepard devised a fascinating audio illusion—a tone that seemed to infinitely rise in pitch. Korora Audio’s Spira deploys the Shepard phenomenon as a phasing/filtering effect.

Boasting excellent build quality, the Spira uses an old trick to create fresh, inspiring, ear-catching tones.
