Ampeg Heritage B-15
Holy cow! Recreating one of the most iconic bass amps in history, Ampeg has announced a limited run of 50 American-made Heritage B-15s. The 30-watt Heritage B-15 boasts two discrete circuits—one modeled after the 1964 B-15, the other after the 1966 model. With such a small run of units, you can bet a bunch of us will be bummed to have missed the B-15 boat. Oh Ampeg, must you tease us so?
Morley Mini Wah Volume & Maverick
Following last year’s release of the Mini Wah and Mini Volume pedals, Morley has followed up with Mini Wah Volume and Maverick pedals. The Maverick is a switchless wah—like Morley’s Vai, Tremonti, and Lynch signature pedals—and both the Maverick and the Mini Wah Volume boast pot-less electro-optical circuitry.
