The Trapper Dual Fuzz ($179.99)

The Trapper combines two discrete fuzz voices into one chassis with global Tone and Contour controls. The softer-sounding first voice includes a switchable high octave—perfect for generating synth-like tones—while the grittier second voice includes a highly interactive noise gate.

MTG: LA Tube Distortion ($199.99)

The MTG: LA is based around a genuine, U.S.-made NOS 6205 preamp tube. Controls include Tone, Bass, Treble and Tight for sound shaping, while a footswitchable Boost adds volume, gain or both to make solos stand out.

Pour Over Envelope Filter (149.99)

The Pour Over offers a unique spin on the traditional envelope filter. In addition to reacting to picking dynamics, it also boasts an onboard distortion circuit with dedicated controls. A comprehensive control set also includes selectable High-Pass, Low-Pass and Band-Pass filter types, as well as sweep direction.

Smolder Acoustic Overdrive ($149.99)

Designed specifically for use with acoustic instruments, the all-analog Smolder Acoustic Overdrive includes a Pickup Compensation control that smooths out highs, while a Drive knob controls the amount of distortion. There’s also 3-band EQ and Filter controls for additional tone shaping, as well as cabinet simulation for use when plugged into a full-range acoustic amp or PA.

Compugilist Compressor/Distortion ($169.99)

The Compugilist combines two effects in one pedalboard-friendly chassis. The discrete, all-analog circuits are independently switchable, allowing them to be used solo or stacked.

Reflecting Pool Delay/Reverb ($299.99)
