Anna Halkjaer, Danish singer/songwriter, discusses how she uses the EHX Superego synth engine with a Gibson SG as the foundation for the sound of her solo project ÆTER.

"I use the Superego to create a very ambient and thick sound and I really love exploring it in my songwriting. The pedal lets me control the synth in various ways and I like how the clean guitar signal can be blended into the synth, letting the synth create a beautiful ambient feeling blending the tones, stretching and weaving them as I please. I love how the pedal surprises you and cannot stop playing with it. The Superego really inspires creativity and my solo gigs become much more atmospheric and unique with this pedal."

Sam Hill at Tone Report Weekly recently took the Electro-Harmonix 720 Stereo Looper out for a spin and was so enamored with its performance, he threatened to "not send this one back."



Hill writes, "The 720 can take layer upon layer without any tone loss, enabling you to loop to your heart’s content," and concludes, "If you’re looking for a looper, you’ve got to give this one a try. For under $150, EHX has delivered a high quality, full-featured looper with a generous amount of loop time. I’m adding this to my board no question."

Introducing the BASS PREACHER, a compact compressor/sustainer designed specifically for the powerful low frequencies and massive dynamic range produced by the modern bass guitar.


Its fully adjustable controls can subtly transform the dynamic qualities of the bass or take them to the extreme. From transparently leveling out notes so they sit in a track to creating an intensely squashed sound, the BASS PREACHER helps spread the gospel of great bass tone!
