Line 6, Inc., makers of best selling guitar amplifiers and multi-effect units, announced today a new expression pedal co-branded with Mission Engineering, the world’s only manufacturer of professional quality switching expression pedals optimized for best performance with specific amplifiers, processors, and effects. EP1-L6 Expression pedal is designed for optimal performance with Line 6 amps and effects.
The EP1-L6 includes design features to complement the look and feel of the Line 6 products, incorporating a Line 6 tread pattern inlaid with Line 6 and Mission logos. A re-designed base plate features new screening and ‘Line 6 by Mission’ lettering. “We were very excited to work on this project”, said Paul Shedden, Vice President of Mission Engineering. “Line 6 and Mission are both leaders in their field, and together we’ve made a high quality expression pedal that just works.”
“We’ve been Mission fans for years and have used their expression pedals with our POD and M13 products for many internal demos and events,” commented Michael Murphy, category manager for POD and PC products at Line 6. “When the POD HD mechanicals started to gel, it became apparent that we needed to offer both our standard EX-1£ expression pedal as well as a bigger and beefier option for players who want something that will match up to their classic wah – the EP1-L6.”
The Mission EP1-L6 is built with the same all aluminum and stainless steel metalwork, and highest quality electronic components that have made Mission pedals respected worldwide for their performance and reliability. The EP1-L6 will be available beginning February 2011 from the Mission web store at www.mission-engineering.com, and approved distributors priced at $105.00.
