What’s New: If you’re looking for an ultra-smooth, fat, punchy compressor, the Origin Effects Cali76 is one of the best out there. Based on possibly the most famous studio compressor of all time, the UREI 1176, the Cali76 is a condensed version of the 1176 in a standard guitar pedal chassis. Built in a rugged metal box, the Cali76 is ultra smooth on both bass and guitar, with fat vintage-style FET compression and an all-analog circuit. While the steep price tag may turn many away, for the guitar player who always wanted an 1176 on stage, the Cali76 is your magic bullet.
What’s New: While 200 bucks might be a little steep to throw out for a snare stand, the DW airlift is worth every penny. Identical to the world-renowned DW 9000 Series drum hardware, the Airlift snare and tom stands feature a revolutionary new pneumatic shock system that allows effortless, exact adjustments to the snare and toms. The drums sit on a cushion of air that allows the drummer to adjust the drum to the exact height with incredible ease. Additional memory locks ensure that the drum will be in the exact same place at each setup, saving time (and your back) for drummers everywhere.
What’s New: Ever have a tone dialed in that was perfect…only to have your pedal settings bumped the next day and now you can’t remember how you got that perfect tone? ReKawl is here to help! ReKawl is an App for iPhone (and soon Android) that allows you to take pictures of your gear and label each one, sort by sound or song, and recall them to remember exactly what settings you used for each sound. Studio engineers can even generate custom track sheets to quickly recall their favorite settings for each piece of gear!
