95000 Oceans 11 Reverb


It’s got all the basics—including hall, plate, and spring reverbs—but the Oceans 11’s functional and inspiring surprises include dynamic and modulated reverbs that add interactive movement, as well as shimmer and polyphonic reverbs that make it easy to create ambient soundscapes.

Golem Overdrive


Ready for an overdrive pedal that’ll do your bidding? Control the Golem’s POWER (volume), RAGE (gain), FORM (tone), and shape (mids) with the main knobs, and let tremble and quake open the door to silicon, germanium, or boost effects. MASS delivers bass/mid boost, and EVOLVE is a tone-shaping drive.

Rock-A-Billy & Ultra Blacks Double Bass Strings


Innovation’s strings use a synthetic core and nylon cover to get tone that sounds like a gut string—but without the issues (or cost). Available in medium- and low-tension sets, Innovation strings are made for rockabilly/psychobilly slap players and bluegrass/Americana players looking for warm thump.
