Cort Gold-OC8 Acoustic-Electric Guitar Cort Guitars has introduced the Gold-OC8 acousticelectric , the latest addition to the Gold Series that combines classic styles with modern features . The revamped Gold-OC8 was designed to be a comfortable orchestra model ( OM ) body with a generous 43mm nut width that ’ s ideal for both fingerpicking and chord fretting . With the addition of a Fishman Flex Bend System with built-in tuner , the Gold-OC8 gives players a wide range of sonic control and natural tones .
The Gold-OC8 features a classic OM cutaway body ( 25.3-in . scale ), a style that was initially developed in the 1920s and captures the prized pre-war era tone that ’ s sought-after in classic acoustic models . The company says the guitar delivers a sound that ’ s larger than its compact size indicates and offers a level of dynamic responsiveness that ’ s reinforced by the hand-scalloped X-bracing . Cort ’ s Aged to Vintage ( ATV ) treatment is meant to give this new guitar the tone of a decades-old acoustic . The torrefication process allows the solid Sitka spruce top to cure and open up more over time , resulting in a big , open tone that ’ s bright yet natural .
The solid Sitka spruce top on the Gold Series gives a clear high end , warm and rich midrange , and a deep but tight low end for a balanced sound . The top has enhanced strength and dense grains along with the flexibility to resonate freely , and is balanced by solid pau ferro back and sides that are tonally similar to Indian rosewood and are stable , abrasion-resistant , and exotic with good impression strength parallel to the grain . Topping it off , a sonically-enhanced UV finish allows the wood to “ breathe ” and vibrate more freely to improve natural acoustic resonance .
Eventide TriceraChorus Stompbox Pedal Eventide Audio has launched the TriceraChorus , a stompbox pedal that offers three effect types complemented by detuning and Swirl .
Inspired by the classic Tri-Stereo Chorus and stompbox choruses of the 1970s and early 1980s , the TriceraChorus pedal pairs Bucket Brigade-style chorusing with Eventide ’ s MicroPitch detuning . The pedal features three chorus voices and three unique chorus effects that can be used to create a wide stereo spread with pulsing waves of modulation . The unique Swirl footswitch adds psychedelic flanging , phasing , and Univibe-style tones . Other features include five loaded presets with dozens more available via the Eventide Device Manager ( EDM ) software ; the dual-action Active Footswitch is latching or momentary ; rear panel Guitar / Line Level switch for matching levels with guitar , synths , FX loop , or DAW interface ; and the ability to map any combination of parameters to an expression pedal .
