First to ship will be a new and expanded line of effect pedals. Included in the line are the Active Gain, featuring two selectable levels of clipping along with gain and volume controls, and La Grunge Distortion, designed to pass the full frequency range of your input for an amp-like distortion.
In addition, four new devices were announced. First up is the Orange Crusher, a studio-style compressor with simple two knob control. The Vibrator is a tremolo/vibrato effect, providing speed, intensity, stroke, and pulsate controls. For the classic octave divider effect, Lee Jackson created the Atom Smasher. Lastly, there's the Photon Phaser, a classic phase shifting effect with Univibe and Leslie effects, including a mix control and footswitch for brake up/down like a real rotating speaker. Several more pedals will be released throughout the year.
According to Jackson, a reissue of his still sought after XLS-1000, albeit with some improvements, a new name and a new faceplate, will be the first amp to be made available. "I get email every day from people trying to find one of these," Jackson says, "so I decided to to satisfy that demand first, and roll out the newer models as the year progresses. The flagship of the new line will be the M-3000, an all tube 100 watt amp that boasts 30 new patented features."
