Guyatone Ultron
By Pete Fine, Accessories, posted on 06-13-2009

Ernie Ball Super Locks
By Pete Fine, Accessories, posted on 05-27-2009

Joe Satriani Time Machine
By Pete Fine, Accessories, posted on 05-13-2009
This is a really warm, natural sounding delay. You can switch between Hi-Fi and Lo-Fi settings but Lo-Fi is what really sets it apart. Lo-Fi is a lttle misleading- the sound is clear and full but much ...Read More >
