Westwood Translucent Drive Manipulator Pedal
This “overdrive manipulator,” which promises warm low-mids and a smooth top end with plenty of vintage grit and punch, has treble and bass controls (with up to 20dB of cut/boost), true bypass, silent relay-based switching, and an allanalog signal path.
BA12-3 SLT Cabinet
The latest addition to Genzler’s Bass Array family, a slanted-cab version of the company’s BA12-3, also features a 12" woofer and four 3" neodymium cone drivers in a line array. It handles 350 watts, boasts a frequency response of 32Hz to 15kHz, and weighs in at 32 pounds.
Jeff Matz Signature Bass
High On Fire badass Jeff Matz’s 35"-scale signature axe flaunts a maple neck, maple fingerboard with black binding, flamemaple top and flame-maple headcap, and a roasted swamp-ash body fitted with Avedissian “Silver Machine” pickups (single-coils with reverse-wound/reverse polarity options). More goodies: a 5-way pickup selector, a volume knob for each pickup, two outputs (one mono, one stereo), and a stereo jack that sends the bridge pickup to one side and the neck and middle pickups to the other. The push/pull tone knob engages the bridge pickup in any switch combination on the mono jack—and turns the stereo mode on for the stereo jack. Hipshot Ultralite Clover tuners, a Hipshot A-Style bridge, and Dunlop Strap Locks round out the package.
