FESTIVE SEASON STOCKING STUFFERS #2

Still haven’t found something for that special musical someone? Here’s another batch of musical gift ideas you might like to consider

WAH WOULDN’T YOU WANT ONE OF THESE FOR XMAS?
VOX V847 Wah Pedal
Based on the specifications of the original pedal developed by VOX in the ’60s, the new Wah-Wah offers guitarists the same legendary tone with the addition of AC power capability and a buffered input jack for preserving the unprocessed guitar tone when the pedal is not engaged. The pedal’s inductor has undergone a redesign to be closer in specification to the original VOX wah inductors, for improved dynamics and tone. These additions will benefit players of all genres who use a wah pedal as an integral part of their sound.

ZOOM F6 FIELD RECORDER

The Zoom F6 professional field recorder features both 32-bit float recording and dual A/D converters, providing an unprecedented amount of dynamic range. With 6 inputs, Zoom’s solid time code, multiple power options and wireless control, the F6 is poised to be your new secret weapon.

In the field, fluctuating dynamics can prove challenging. Loud sounds can cause clipping and quiet sounds can get lost in the noise. The F6 uses 32-bit float recording with dual A/D converters to capture both explosive and subtle sounds at full audio quality – without ever adjusting gain!

The F6 is equipped with six professional-grade preamps. Featuring a super-low noise floor (-127 dBu EIN), high gain (up to 75 dB), and selectable mic/line levels for each input, the F6 is built for location sound.

ORANGE MICRO DARK MINI AMP

Building on the overwhelming success of our acclaimed Dark Terror and Dual Dark amps, we’ve distilled thousands of customer demands into a pint-sized valve hybrid head – the Micro Dark.
The Micro Dark shares the same intuitive Shape control combined with a new 12AX7-driven high gain preamp section which yields screaming dirty tones that make a mockery of its miniature frame. Like its bigger brothers, however, the Micro Dark’s smoky black chassis and simple layout actually disguises its cunning versatility.
Of course, there’s plenty of gain on tap to satisfy even the most discerning devotee of distortion, but this little beast is by no means just a one-trick Metal monster! Beneath the menacing exterior you’ll find a rich and diverse pallette of classy and confident tones. From squeaky clean to brash and mean – whatever your style – you’re gonna love this thing.
Other features include a transparent fully buffered effects loop and a headphone output with our popular CabSim circuitry. With the optional PPC108 cabinet, the Micro is an ideal practice rig… Plug into something a little larger, though, and you might find your new secret weapon in the studio!

ASHDOWN ENGINEERING PHONE-BOX HEADPHONE OUT/DI Box

Whilst the plethora of new style lightweight portable low power bass heads feature headphone output sockets – they are not usually included in the feature set of high end or vintage professional Bass amplifiers designed for live performances, this can present a bit of a problem when you need to use such a head or combo in a restricted environment for silent monitoring when recording or rehearsing.
The Ashdown Phone Box addresses this problem, designed for use with most types of solid state amplifiers, the phone box connects between the amp head and speaker to allow connection of headphones to amps lacking a headphone output. Also provides a line out 1/4 jack plus a balanced DI.

T-REX FUEL TANK CHAMELEON POWER SUPPLY
T-REX-Fuel-Tank-Chameleon packs all the power you need to make T-Rex pedals – and playing – sound spectacular. With 4 different voltage options, it will power just about any pedal invented.

Chameleon is a powerhouse of versatility, but it doesn’t stop there. You get clean, quiet, isolated power outlets, an amazing 1.500 mA of total juice, and a big set of custom-made cables. And it’s incredibly easy to use.

Part of the Fuel Tank family.

The Fuel Tank Chameleon is only the latest addition to the T-Rex Fuel Tank family. 

The original Fuel Tank Classic features 9V DC, 12V DC and 12V AC outlets in three isolated blocks of 500mA each and is ideal for medium-sized pedal boards. 

It comes with lots of single patch cables and a multiple link cable. The Fuel Tank “Juicy Lucy” powers 5 12V pedals and also offers great extras, like multiple unit linking. The baby of the family – Fuel Tank Junior – is a good choice for a small number of 9V pedals. It offers both current doubling to 240 mA and voltage doubling to 18V.

Select, plug and play
Chameleon gives you 6 separate outlets for plugging your 
pedals into.

Here’s how they work:
• Outlets 1–3 can all be used to power either 9V or 12V pedals. For each outlet, just use the VOLTAGE SELECTOR switches to choose the voltage you need, plug in your pedal and go!
• Outlet 4 works the same way and gives you a similar choice – except that it’s between 9V and 18V.
• Outlets 5 and 6 may only be used one at a time. If you use them both at the same time, you might get some noise. Like outlets 1–3, outlet 5 gives you a choice between 9V and 12V. Outlet 6 is a 12V AC outlet for pedals that require AC power.
