WAMPLER PEDALS
TUMNUS DELUXE
$199

The Tumnus Deluxe delivers all the string-to-string clarity, high-headroom output, and amp-like breakup that made the Tumnus pedal so iconic. But its 3-band EQ will enhance your tone with warm low end, instantly identifiable midrange, and just the right amount of top-end sparkle. Active bass and mid controls, side-mounted buffered/true bypass control. Built in the U.S.A. wamplerpedals.com

The Super Shredder Humbucker Pickups—which Mad Hatter designed in collaboration with Fralin Pickups—were designed to have incredible note clarity, to be responsive, and to have focused mids that sit perfectly in the mix. When split, they have no volume loss and sound like a true single-coil. The pickups are available in black, white, & zebra with the choice of nickel, gold, or black screws. Black and zebra are available in both standard and tremolo spacing, while white is available in tremolo spacing. madhatterguitarproducts.com

PRS GUITARS
CUSTOM 24-08
N/A

022_gpr0118_newgear copy-1

The Custom 24 is the quintessential PRS guitar, the iconic instrument that started it all back in 1985. The Custom 24-08 keeps all the same foundational specifications as the original Custom – maple top, mahogany back and neck, the PRS patented Gen III tremolo, and dual 85/15 pickups – but adds a new level of versatility with its simple switching system. Featuring mini-toggle coil tap switches (like the PRS 408 model), the Custom 24-08 has eight different pickup settings that provide an array of humbucking and single-coil tones, including a dual single-coil option unique for this model. prsguitars.com

TAURUS AMPLIFICATION
STOMP-HEAD 3
$820

The Stomp-Head 3 is an ultra light, very compact pedal-style amplifier with integrated footswitches designed to be set on the pedalboard along with effects or placed directly on the stage floor. Using what they call Master Tube Design, this compact amplifier uses a tube between the preamp and power amp for that warm, classic guitar sound. A high gain model is also available. www.taurus-amp.pl
