Traveler Guitar
Pro-Series Deluxe
$499 street

ZVEX
Fuzz Factory Vertical
$199 street

The Vertical offers the same fuzz controls as the original, horizontal Fuzz Factory, but places them onto a more “pedalboard friendly” enclosure. Two new/old-stock germanium transistors power the buzz, and sounds automatically gate off when you stop riffing.

TUSQ
Thumb Picks
$9.95 street

These thumbpicks are reminiscent of vintage tortoise shell—they’re thin, tough, and articulate. Sold in packs of three, the new thumbpicks are available in three different tones (bright, warm, deep), and two gauges (.88mm, 1.4mm).

TC Electronic
Analog Armada
$49 street

016_gpr0318_newgear-6

Calling it the “Analog Armada,” TC Electronic is putting out a series of budget, analog stompboxes. The eight pedals are comprised of three gain pedals (overdrive, fuzz, and metal distortion), three modulation pedals (chorus, tremolo, and an octaver), an autoswell, and a noise gate. All pedals have a steel enclosure, top-mounted jacks, and are true bypass.
