Morley has announced a new all-analog multi-effects pedal, the AFX-1, which is making a pitch for players that want grab-and-go tonal flexibility without the menu diving and complex components of digital equivalents.

The AFX-1 pulls together four Morley effects in a retro (and seemingly bombproof) steel enclosure. Indeed that aesthetic hints at the classic origins of the circuits inside, some of which reportedly date back to the brand’s original chrome pedals from the ’70s.
