    It'd be cool to see one of these companies do a "Full-size" floorboard. I remember the Zoom G9 being one of the better sounding "big" floor modelers back in the day and it had some cool features like the "Z Pedal". I wanna try one of these Mooer modelers, but I know I can't deal with the limited switching after rocking a Helix for the last three years.

    I was actually excited for a fraction of a split second, before remembering that Steve sold that name long ago. Still kinda cool though, depending on the price.

    Ah, I'm also guilty. I thought it was Fryette proper.

    flying leads are a fucking mess. but the board looks good. If it's priced like vht's other amps it could be a decent budget amp.

    Alright, fanboy time for a company that isn't necessarily about the metals: Alexander Pedals

    They just released a new pedal that captures a rare oddity pedal from the 90s: the Pefftronics Rand-o-Matic. The original "vintage" ones are incredibly expensive and hard to find these days. Oh and they also released a vintage overdrive pedal to go with it. Not particularly excited about that one for now, but you can hear it in the second video.






    Very cool and interesting sound. Could be a fun one to slap on the board as a character pedal or for something to use during practice to inspire some songwriting. I'm glad Matthew at Alexander distilled the essence of the vintage pedal into something more reliable and affordable.

    I remember I almost bought a Rand-o-Matic MANY times back in the day, and remember staring at it in the Musicians Friend catalog. Maybe I should have, lol.

    Did you check Reverb?

    They’re worth about $2,000 now.

    That is crazy. I think they were $179 back then. Maybe that was on sale, maybe $229? Somewhere in there. Seemed like a good deal compared to buying separate Chorus, Flanger, and Phaser pedals.

    Neural DSP floor modeler will be a serious contender, at least I know what to buy this year. And I would be proud to use a finnish based product, which rarely happens.

    The post did say that James was going to be the head "analog design" guy, so perhaps there could be an improved version of the 5150 III pedal in the works. Perhaps even make it multichannel like the Ceres.
