MOOER
Tender Octaver mkII

Image placeholder title

Mooer’s update of the Tender Octaver boasts a fat algorithm with a huge lower octave and upper-octave shimmer, a tight algorithm for a focused lower octave and sharper upper-octave bite, as well as a swell mode that leaves the dry signal untouched while adding volume swell to the harmony voices.

DR. NO
Mini Turd Fuzz

This limited-edition mini version of Dr. No’s Turd Fuzz retains the same circuit and custom-made foam turd knob while adding a fuzz volume to adjust the fuzz gain—and it comes with a silkscreened box, a cotton silkscreened-logo bag, and goodies like stickers and keychains.

ASHDOWN
OriginAL Valve Pre-DI pedal

The headphone output on this bass DI—which is packed with tube overdrive from a 12AX7 preamp tube, XLR DI output, 5-band EQ, and unbalanced ¼" line out—makes it a great practice device, too.
