  • The Summer NAMM Orgy of Pedals

    NAMM was filled with pedal companies - there were probably more 9V batteries represented on the show floor than at all of the CVS pharmacies in Cleveland. Let's drool over some of the pix...

    NUX had their pedal line, but also introduced the compact Cerberus multieffects that got a Best of Show award - it even has an IR loader for all you "I don't want to carry a cabinet around" people. This kind of compact multieffects strip seems to be the up-and-coming floor box format.

    Lunastone picked up some employees from TC Electronic after the company was bought by The Music Group. You can definitely see the TC influence in these two new overdrive pedals.

      MXR showed several pedals at the show, but the one that got the most attention was the Carbon Copy Deluxe.

        Dwarfcraft can always be counted on for interesting, and from time to time disturbing, pedals...and right on cue, at Summer NAMM they introduced a new delay-based pedal called "The Curse."

          Coppersound had plenty of pedals. My favorite is still the Morse code key signal interruptor in the upper left.

            There was also a fine display of pedals by Walrus Audio. You gotta love that artwork, but their main introduction was the ARP-87 delay.

              The Swedish company Elektron doesn't just make outstanding synthesizers and drum machines, but also a nifty analog distortion generator called Analog Drive.

                TC Electronic had their current line of pedals...and Polytune 3 now has a built-in buffer.

                  In a world where pedal companies seem to want to outdo each other's artwork, Lounsberry is a real contender. I also like that they make several pedals specifically for keyboards.

                    BOSS showed the MS-3 Multi Effects Switcher, which combines a multieffects engine with a switcher so it's easy to put together a custom effects setup.



                    BOSS also showed the RV-500 Reverb floor pedal...



                    ...the MD-500 Modulation pedal...



                    ...and for bass players, the GT-1B Bass Effects Processor.

                      If you saw a pedal named Atomic Cock, you'd probably figure it was from Daredevil pedals...and you'd be right.

                        This one isn't about a pedal, but an accessory for your pedal: Wingman. You pull off your existing knob, put on the Wingman (the little white thingies attached to the pedals in the picture), and then use your foot to push against the "wings" to change your knob setting.

                          Italian company Dolphins Sound showed their "Three Naked Men" collection - Nettuno Fuzz, David Distortion, and Perseo Boost.

                            Valeton was another company that embraced the multieffects "strip" processor. At the show, they introduced the Dapper pedal with Reverb, Preamp, and Compression.
