The music is found between the dots and dashes with this telegraph key kill switch pedal.
In another repurposing of unlikely hardware, the Plus Pedal uses a piano sustain pedal to "freeze" the audio so you can play over the top. It does a good job of detecting vibrato and trills and looping accordingly.
There's got to be some rich yacht owner/guitar player that would pay top dollar for these one-of-a-kind "Old Ironsides" amps.
While not practical, if your nose was pierced these pick earrings could be nose picks.
If you're going to have a booth at NAMM, it's not a good idea to use Google Translate for your signage text.
The giant muppet may be the only competitor in the large and fuzzy category. Rainger decided to go large with the Dr. Freakenstein Fuzz that they showed last year.
It couldn't be a NAMM show without translucent products and oversized products. A giant translucent guitar would be my downfall because I wouldn't be able to escape its gravity.
Most of the gears on these were just glued on for decoration but they work on a few of these pedals.
Every year there is a new pick unveiled at NAMM that will radically change the experience of using a pick. This is the entry for 2017. I've built quite a collection over the years and many of them are pretty cool.
Or maybe this is this year's revolutionary new pick. You decide.
It's not often that you see something new in the mechanical aspect of stomp boxes.
I was drawn to the translucent guitarish object but it was there to show off their tremolo system, which does look interesting.
You beat the strings and the product is called Triller. You get the joke right? This illustrates how explaining a joke is death for humor.
Often the simplest solution is the best. You clip either end of the thin wire to your stand and keeps your music flat and the page open to where you want it.
Demeter built one of the TGA-1 pedalboard amps into a vintage Nintendo box.
There is some sort of dark magic involved with this pickup system. You place a magnetized disc over the terminals and the pickup will change its characteristics.
The Little Thunder pickup gives you a -1, or -2 octave shift to the bottom two (or three) strings and provides a separate output so the original pickup sound is preserved.
I didn't get to hear what these sound like but they sure are pretty.
This wah pedal looks like it doesn't want you to step on it.
These are completely software-driven pedals. You can download any of their processing models into the pedal and off you go.
A companion app allows you to upload selected effects algorithms to the Neuro pedals. Unlike the Hotone pedals, there are different Source Audio pedals that run "families" of algrothms. There's also a community for sharing presets.
The Mod Duo pedal can be programmed with MAX/MSP, Pure Data or Faust and they've a plug-in store with free and commercial offerings.
Joe Gore likes to rough things up. His whole pedal line revolves around fuzz, overdrive, and distortion of various flavors.
I noticed the signature API knobs on the LX bass and GT guitar DI pedals. I love all the API studio gear I've used over the years, I would expect these to not suck at all.
You could be a roving superhero with one of these rigs.
