Tsakalis AudioWorks Introduces the Molecular Boost

A small stomp that can function as a buffer, boost, preamp, or volume pedal.

Athens, Greece (March 31, 2020) -- We are very proud to introduce our latest design called Molecular Boost (Booster – Buffer – Preamp - Volume Pedal)!

The Molecular boost is a small but powerful and versatile stomp box. It can be used as a buffer, a booster, a preamp or a volume pedal and it can be placed anywhere in your rig. An internal voltage doubler ensures that the Molecular boost can handle any signal level, leaving the quality of your tone intact. A dual high speed FET opamp is responsible for matching the impedance of most pickups and piezos and for accurately preserving the character of any instrument plugged into it, while driving even the longest cables without any signal loss.

Enjoy a generous amount of boost (ufrom 0db. to +18db.) by adjusting the easily accessible external knob.

Four external dip switches give you access to 4 different boosted frequency ranges (DIP1&2), a high cut filter (DIP3) and to engage the xp input (DIP4) when the pedal is in buffered bypass mode. Also an internal switch allows selecting between True and Buffered bypass modes.

There is more! Connect any volume or expression pedal to the xp input to control the overall volume of the boosted signal when the pedal is engaged, or the unity level when the pedal is disengaged and in buffered bypass mode.

Suggested Retail Price: 159 Euros.

Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time. But since I seem to exist on a separate timeline than most folks, it was all news to me.
