Catalinbread released a new version of the Naga Viper, the Catalinbread Naga Viper MKII. The newest version of the Viper has an added attenuator knob. This control acts like a level control for everything in front of the Naga Viper, letting you shave some heat from the incoming signal before it runs through the proverbial gears of the booster. This leads to less saturation and undesirable effects and more treble-boosting goodness going into your amp.

Earthquaker designed a new pedal for bass players. Earthquaker Devices Blumes is an all-analog tri-mode soft clipping bass overdrive that carries the torch of the classic screamer circuit but has a voice all its own. While embodying most of the characteristics and features of the beloved Plumes Small Signal Shredder, this modified circuit has double the gain and a deeper bass response to retain all the low end. It utilizes internal bipolar power, which gives you more dynamics and all the headroom you could ever desire.

Red Panda heeft een nieuw pedaal uitgebracht met de naam Red Panda Radius. Radius is een ringmodulator en frequentieverschuiver met pitch-tracking en een geavanceerde LFO. Het pedaal is ontworpen rond een nieuw algoritme dat soepel overgaat van ringmodulatie naar frequentieverschuiving en verschillende frequentieverhoudingen mogelijk maakt voor de hogere en lagere tonen. Het is op dit moment nog onduidelijk of, en zo ja wanneer, deze door ons kan worden geleverd.
