Thought we could chuck any new stuff in here?

First up, EHX Blurst.

Awful name, awful graphics, could be fun for mad sondz though.



Quote:
EHX has grafted technology found in keyboard and modular synthesizers into a pedal designed for guitarists and bass players. The Blurst modulates an instrument’s sound like an envelope filter, but instead of the filter’s response being controlled by playing dynamics, it’s controlled by an internal oscillator. The Blurst is a must have for the adventurous player who wants to explore new sonic territory!

Quick Specs
- Features an analog low pass filter with adjustable resonance
- Three modulation waveform shapes: triangle, rising saw-tooth and falling saw-tooth
- Modulation rate is set by either the rate knob or a combination of the tap footswitch and tap divide toggle switch offering quarter, dotted eighth and triplet rhythms
- Three EXP modes, range, rate and filter, can be controlled by an expression pedal or control voltage source like EHX’s 8 Step Program Analog Expression/CV Sequencer
- Range knob sets the frequency range of the filter’s modulation, Blend control adjusts the dry/filtered signal mix
- Includes an EHX 9.6DC200mA power supply
- Dimensions in inches: 2.75 (w) x 4.5 (l) x 2.1 (h)
- Dimensions in mm: 70 (w) x 115 (l) x 54 (h)

Not a lot from Boss by the looks of it. Unless you're after an expression pedal:



Quote:
For pro expression control in a compact package, there’s no better choice than the BOSS EV-30. Its small footprint is perfectly suited for cramped pedalboards, while the die-cast aluminum chassis offers a rock-solid foundation and BOSS’s famous rugged reliability.
A key feature of the EV-30 is an innovative internal mechanism that provides ultra-smooth feel and precise parameter control, delivering performance that rivals full-size pedals. And with two expression outputs, you can save further space by controlling two different devices from a single pedal. The outputs are electronically isolated, eliminating the possibility of noise issues from ground loops.
The EV-30 brings powerful real-time parameter control to the many BOSS compact pedals equipped with expression pedal inputs. It’s also ideal for use with BOSS multi-effects processors and effects switching systems. A handy polarity switch provides compatibility with a wide range of music gear, allowing you to use the EV-30 with most devices that support expression control.

    Space-saving expression pedal with a rugged die-cast aluminum body
    Silky feel and smooth pivot for precise parameter control
    Isolated dual expression outputs for controlling two devices with one pedal
    Independent pedal range adjustment for each output
    Works with ¼-inch TRS expression inputs on stompbox pedals, multi-effects, keyboards, MIDI controllers, and more
    Polarity switch provides compatibility with most devices that support expression control
    Shares the same rugged, space-saving design of the FV-30H/L volume pedals and PW-3 wah
    Includes ¼-inch TRS (stereo) cable

Boss seem to be choking a bit in the current landscape. Their new prices are not competitive at all, and their used prices keep dropping.

If they found a way to shave some costs, make their pedals true bypass with a switchable buffer (like TC Electronics are cashing in on) and started to dabble in micros, they'd start slaying again.

Looks like there's (another) black DS-1 coming out too. Get your teh on in black:



Quote:
The DS-1 Distortion was introduced in 1978 as part of the second wave of compact pedal releases. Its hard-edged attack and smooth sustain was an instant success among guitarists, going on to fuel the signature sounds of numerous rock legends. The DS-1 has enjoyed such enduring popularity that’s it’s remained in the lineup to this day, outselling every other BOSS pedal to date.
To commemorate 40 years of BOSS pedal innovation, we’ve released a special version of the DS-1 that features a black body with gold lettering, gold-capped knobs, and a vintage silver thumbscrew for the battery compartment. The pedal comes in a special box with the BOSS 40th anniversary logo, and will be available in 2017 only.

Obligatory cross-post from the Runaway topic:

Digitech FreqOut Feedback Simulator

http://digitech.com/en-US/products/freqout

Doog wrote:
FYI George et others:


Link


Pretty nifty, lotsa sounds too

Quote:
The DigiTech FreqOut Natural Feedback Creator allows you to get sweet, natural feedback at any volume, with or without distortion. The FreqOut is perfect for situations where volume must be controlled like in the studio, with in ear monitors, or low-volume performance and practice. However, the FreqOut can also be used at gig volume to focus out-of-control feedback on a preferred harmonic at any stage position.

More Details

The FreqOut has adjustable feedback Onset (delay before feedback begins), Gain (feedback level to balance with your dry signal), Dry On/Off, latching or momentary operation, true bypass, and a rugged road-tough steel chassis.

The FreqOut uses a 9VDC power supply to easily integrate into your existing pedalboard.

Features:
- Natural Feedback at any level with or without distortion
- Onset Delay and Level balance controls
- 7 Harmonic Feedback types
- Dry Defeat
- Momentary/Latching modes
- True Bypass

Rumoured price of $180, released March '17.

Interested in that one ^^^^ but think it would be better with an expression pedal like the Runaway.

DOD Rubberneck analgoue delay:



Quote:
The new DOD Rubberneck Analog Delay has double the features with the cool new double-wide chassis. The Rubberneck boasts over a second of warm and musical 100% analog repeats you crave, along with tap-tempo, subdivisions, and tails. Double concentric knobs give you independent control of the Modulation Rate and Depth as well as Gain and Tone of the delay.

More Details
Double footswitches allow for unique extended features like user customizable momentary control of oscillation and momentary control of the dizzying pitch sweep of “Rubbernecking.” These extended features are controlled by individual clear mini knobs that double as multi-color LED status indicators. Feedback loop send/return, remote footswitch control, true bypass, and rugged metal construction, make the Rubberneck Analog Delay the must have delay of the year.

The Rubberneck also has jacks to allow FS3X 3-button remote foot switching, and a send and return so you can add external effects to the delay path.

The DOD Rubberneck uses a 9VDC power supply to easily integrate into your existing pedalboard.

Features
    Up to 1.5 Seconds of Analog Delay
    Tap Tempo with 3 Tap Ratio selections
    Rubbernecking allows ‘rubber band’ stretched delay performance
    Modulation Speed and Depth controls
    Delay Gain and Tone controls
    Regen footswitch provides performance control of repeats

Another one from EHX:

Quote:
Operation Overlord – Stereo Overdrive
The Operation Overlord is a Stereo Overdrive pedal that will work really well for keys players or if you use loads of stereo effects or a dual amp setup. It’s got an active EQ for easy tone-dialling and a dry blend so that you can add small amounts of drive to your signal if you want to keep clarity on your instrument.
The Operation Overlord has also got an active boost for more gain when playing guitar solos or you need to be heard in that noisy mix.


Doesn't seem to be on the EHX website yet (that blurb is from the Andertons website).

Orange Kongpressor:


Link


Quote:
The Kongpressor is an analogue Class A compression pedal which adds an organic three dimensional quality to any rig. The pedal takes its inspiration from some of the world’s most iconic vintage optical studio units, employing a re-issue of the famous vactrol VTL5C3 optocoupler that was responsible for the sound heard on countless hit records.

At lower compression levels the Kongpressor’s effect is transparent but somehow fattening. It adds mojo and a glossy sheen to your core tone that you’ll truly miss when it’s bypassed. Even at extreme settings, the tone always remains musical with great feel under the fingers.

With controls for attack and release time, the Kongpressor can be tweaked to fine tune the transients and the bloom. We worked hard to make these parameters as forgiving as possible whilst still allowing players full control over the compression response. The pedal’s internal charge pump doubles the headroom of the unit, so however the dials are set, the compression tracks seamlessly and remains clean across its range. There’s also an active treble control for adding in extra chime and jangle, making the compression even more transparent. So whether you are new to compression or a seasoned studio user, it’s impossible to get a bad sound from this comp.

Of course it’s outstanding for crystal clean country pickin’, but the Kongpressor also maintains the bottom end that seems to gets lost in many compression pedals. This means it behaves impeccably with overdrive pedals or the lead channel of your amplifier, adding fullness and sustain.

Optical Class A Compression
The Kongpressor’s analogue, Class A design makes for very natural sounding compression. The vintage-inspired optical circuit adds extra depth your guitar or bass tone, making it seem ‘larger than life’.

The attack and release times can be adjusted to taste allowing for fine tuning of the bloom and perceived plectrum gauge. Faster attack times will react to the front of the note faster, while slower attack times will add punch to the sound as the compression reacts slower on the transient. Fast release times will give more perceived clean volume along with a more transparent compression. Slower release times will yield more compression and a slower, mellower bloom. With any attack or release setting, the Kongpressor has a satisfying, springy playing response under the fingers.

12dB Clean Boost
With up to 12dB of clean gain available on the Volume control, the Kongpressor works brilliantly as a transparent clean boost pedal, but with a little extra ‘something’. With the compression turned up, your lead lines will cut through the band with plenty of fat, singing sustain.

Internal Charge Pump
Like all Orange pedal’s, the Kongpressor features an internal charge pump which doubles the operating voltage of the pedal to 18V. This has the effect of drastically increasing the headroom for super clean compression. The Kongpressor can be powered by 9V battery or standard DC adapter, or for even more output can also run on 12V DC.

Transparent Buffered Bypass
The Kongpressor’s bypass features an ultra-linear buffer which retains your guitar’s upper harmonic content when the pedal is switched off. Maintain tonal integrity even with long cable runs and large pedalboards.

Kongpressor sounds pretty great. I've been looking for a DOD 280 but might hold out for one of these instead.

Not a pedal but Music Man are bringing out a Sterling version of the St Vincent signature guitar:



Quote:
In addition to Music Man’s announcement of 4 new colours for their revolutionary St. Vincent series of guitars, sister company Sterling by Music Man have announced the introduction of their own Sterling St. Vincent.

Information on the release is limited at the moment, but this is undeniably excellent news for the loads of guitar players who love the idea of the St. Vincent signature model, but not the price point.

The Sterling St. Vincent promises the offer of an affordable alternative. Some features have been altered; the solid rosewood neck is replaced with a rosewood board and maple neck, the bridge and trem system looks to be slightly different, and the new model will be available in St. Vincent blue and black; both colours originally available on the first 2016 incarnation of the Music Man St. Vincent.

What is clear is that this guitar will be available before the end of January, and is likely to blow an awful lot of people’s socks off!
