Foxpedal Magnifica Deluxe

Get washed away

For the player who wants a no nonsense reverb that has character and preset/stacking options, this is the pedal for you. Foxpedal has smashed this pedal out of the park - not only does it look a million dollars, but it also sounds it.

Strymon Sunset Dual Overdrive

Strymon Sunset

Master of Many

Continuing 2017’s stellar run of innovative overdrive pedals, the Strymon Sunset delivers a swag of tasty tones big enough to rise the challenge of any gig. Surely it’s no coincidence that this veritable Swiss Army Knife of tone comes in a familiarly striking red enclosure. Don’t let that fool you though - the Sunset is more than just a jack of all trades!

Jackson Audio Prism

Jackson Audio Prism

Let there be light!

Taking an unconventional approach to forge new ground, the Prism has caused quite a stir. Regardless, forget what you may have heard, forget what you think a pedal like this should feature. And while you’re at it, you should probably forget what you think you know about boost pedals. The Prism silences all skeptics, and then some.

Foxpedal Defector Fuzz

A Muff Big With Features

Anyone running a Muff with just a tone control can probably share a couple experiences where they kicked it on and just disappeared from the mix entirely. I’ve had this problem a lot myself, and since then I’ve been seeking out control over those precious, cutting frequencies in my fuzzes...

Flux Effects Liquid Ambience

Send your tone into the stratosphere

I was lucky enough to meet Michael Weavers (owner of Flux Effects) at the Signal Chain launch party last year. Apart from just being a really rad guy - hearing about his approach to building, designing and delivering a product like no other was really exciting. Basically, he sold me on the spot and I went home with a Liquid Ambience in my hand.

I haven't been disappointed a moment since.

Strymon Flint

Set Your Tone On Fire!

I love reverb. Love it. Love, love, love it! And, I wanted a great reverb pedal on my board. Actually, if I’m honest, I wanted two great reverb pedals on my board. Something subtle that would be always on and something really big, like a large cathedral with a little bit of modulation for swells and ambient stuff...

Bondi Effects Sick As MkII Overdrive

Beauty That's Far More Than Skin Deep

Now and then a pedal comes along that simply ticks all the boxes; the Bondi Effects Sick As Overdrive is just one of those pedals. Jon Ashley from Bondi Effects has made a big splash in the boutique effects scene with this fantastic pedal, and it has certainly become one of my personal favourites. So what's so good about this sea-foam hued box of tone?

Chellee Guitars Odie Overdrive

As Flexible As Your Yoga Instructor... and then some

I’ve already confessed, I’m an overdrive junkee. I’ve got way too many and I’m not stopping anytime soon. They range from my first OD, the ‘Rocktek Overdrive’, to my most recent acquisition, a surf green Timmy. I’m usually buying another OD to find a sound that I haven't heard before, or maybe something that I have heard, but done better.

Rarely am I using one OD for all my OD needs, however, I’m always intrigued by ‘flexibility’ and that’s what the Odie boasts.

Caroline Guitar Company Haymaker overdrive

Jack of All trades | Master of Whatever You Like

Overdrive pedals are an interesting, and more often than not, touchy subject for a lot of guitarists. Some folk swear by the classic TS-808 circuit as they put on their cowboy hat and brush the cobwebs off their finest bolo tie. Others claim transparency is key in achieving the elusive ‘perfect tone’, a pursuit that has driven the price of some single overdrive units into the thousands. It’s pretty rare to see an overdrive that genuinely feels like a new idea, that’s where Caroline Guitar Company come in.
