Decibel Eleven Pedal Palette
The Pedal Palette is the first and only analog loop bypass switcher, router and mixer capable of reordering your effect pedals while simultaneously providing an optional parallel mix bus.

Fulltone Secret Freq
The Fulltone Secret Freq. is a gig-friendly clean boost and transparent overdrive/distortion pedal. Dynamic asymmetrical clipping gives the Secret Freq. a sweet and musical clean boost, juicy overdrive and touch-responsive high-gain sounds. The pedal also features a proprietary Freq. knob that adds as much as 20db of active narrow-band midrange. It’s like installing a wah-wah right where the distortion is being generated. Adding the Freq.’s midrange imparts more sustain without losing any bass and treble.
