Spring Hill, TN (Jan 13, 2012) -- Visual Sound is presenting the V3 Dual Tap Delay''s little brother, the V3 Visual Sound Tap Delay. At less than half the size

Spring Hill, TN (Jan 13, 2012) -- Visual Sound is presenting the V3 Dual Tap Delay's little brother, the V3 Visual Sound Tap Delay. At less than half the size of the Dual Tap Delay, the new V3 Tap Delay has all the great tone and features of channel 2 of the DTD, yet it can fit on even the most cramped pedal board. Like it's big brother, the Tap Delay features a tone control for darkening your echo, and a modulation knob to add a bit of chorus to your repeats. Half the size, all the tone.

Street Price:  $169.95



The new Time Bandit from Visual Sound controls your tap tempo delay pedal with a click track, dials it in with a BPM generator, and will work with just about any delay pedal that has an "external tap tempo" jack.  Whether you have the Visual Sound Dual Tap Delay, a Boss DD-5, or one of many other delay pedals, the Time Bandit will allow you to be in sync with a click track without tapping.  If you prefer to dial in the Beats Per Minute, the Time Bandit has a large knob that will allow you to dial it in by hand or foot and see the BPM on the LED display.

Street Price:  $99.95



Visual Sound's Pure Tone is back.  The buffer that is in all Visual Sound pedals is now available in a new, tiny, Custom Shop package.  Put it first in the chain of effects, plug in your input and output cables and a 9V power supply (like the 1 SPOT...), and your guitar will sound like it's plugged directly into your amp with a short cord. Eliminates cable capacitance and tone sucking.

Street Price:  $49.95

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.
