Phil Jones Bass PE-5 Multi-Function Pedal

Phil Jones Bass ( PJB ) has released the PE-5 , a pedal designed for bass guitar and upright bass that incorporates a five-band EQ and also offers superior function as a preamp , direct box , and signal booster .
The PE-5 is engineered with a unique switchable input impedance , which allows the pedal to match exactly to either a magnetic or piezo pickup . It achieves the full band spectrum for either pickup source . In addition , it is a signal booster that compensates for low-output pickups and will also provide ample drive for any amplifier . The input level and gain controls are designed to match the pickup output to an amplifier . The line output is strong enough to use directly into a power amplifier or a powered speaker .
The five-band EQ is a high-precision equalizer , which means that each boost or cut level is identical to each adjacent band — plus , the Q-factor of each band is identical . This makes it easier for the player to accomplish the tone that they are pursuing . These frequency bands were chosen for the voice of a bass so that the user will be able to adjust the EQ rapidly to get the desired sound .

Lunastone Deep Metal Pedal

Lunastone has released the Deep Metal pedal , which is designed to offer “ hugely scooped distortion ” tailored specifically for providing powerful and classic metal tones . It is equally suited for creating wall-of-sound-like heavy guitar riffs and cutting-through-and-above-the-mix solos .
With the Deep Metal , the low end is kept tight while maintaining the ability to go really low , which translates into a big sound , even on small combos . Lunastone ’ s hallmark has traditionally been pedals that deliver very transparent guitar tones that do not colour the fundamental sound of the guitar , pickups , and amp . Deep Metal , however , is meant to provide new flavours and is also a more forgiving pedal in regards to revealing small flaws in playing technique . The company says the Deep Metal may even enhance the overall sound of mediocre pickups .

Godin Montreal Premiere HT Trans White

Godin Guitars has launched the Montreal Premiere HT Trans White , which it says is a vibrant and versatile guitar for jazz , blues , and rock players .
This guitar has a unique breathe-through carved core to enable the body to resonate better , and a newly-developed acoustic-inspired finish , which lends itself well to this semi-hollow body design . Because the finish is thinner and more organic in nature , similar to a high-end acoustic guitar , it breathes freer and offers more sonic properties to the Montreal Premiere HT .
While it is complemented by a classic Graph Tech ResoMax Hard-Tail bridge , this Montreal Premiere model features a distinctive trans white finish . It also has a mahogany neck , which is complemented with a rosewood fretboard for added roundness and warmth to the overall tone . The scale is 24.75 in . for easier bends and more midrange , while the Canadian wild cherry semi-hollow body provides overall tonal balance with sustain and clarity . The guitar comes equipped with a Seymour Duncan Jazz SH- 2n in the neck position and a Godin Custom Humbucker at the bridge .
