Deep Space Pulsar Mini-Pedal
Rainger’s new Deep Space Pulsar allows you to sync your bass tone so it dips with each hit of a kick drum (by a drum machine, a DJ, or live drummer), thanks to correctable tap tempo, or tempo input via a Rainger FX pressure pad or a microphone on your drummer’s kick drum. There are also controls for the amount of dip and speed of release, an LED display showing the dip amount and release speed, and an invert switch to do exactly the opposite (releasing a pulse of sound with each drum beat)
Chromatic Pedal Tuner
D’Addario’s new tuner boasts vertical-sweeping LED pitch display for easier reading, a 32-bit chip with four times the processing power of a standard headstock tuner, and true bypass.
TB500 4-strings & TB505 5-strings
Mitchell’s latest basses—which feature custom-contoured alder bodies, one-piece 34"-scale maple necks, and Indian rosewood fingerboards with 20 jumbo frets—sport standard split-single and single-coil, paraffin-dipped Alnico-V pickups. Other highlights of each instrument: separate volume controls for each pickup, and a master tone control; a high-mass, adjustable bridge; a Graph Tech TUSQ XL friction-reducing nut; and high-ratio, Y-type tuning machines. The 4-strings are available in trans white blond and black, with the 5-strings available only in black.
