VOX PATHFINDER10 GUITAR AMPLIFIER
Those instantly recognizable, warm British sounds you’ve come to expect from VOX are alive and well in the compact, 10 watt Pathfinder 10 combo – plus a high gain capability that’s thoroughly modern. This combo’s eye-catching looks are also classic VOX and include basket-weave, leather-look vinyl, our distinctive diamond grille cloth and ‘chicken head’ knobs! Small but all-important details such as Gold beading and white piping have also been faithfully reproduced, perfectly capturing the legendary look of VOX. It has clean/overdrive modes, headphone/line-out jack and Gain/Bass/Treble/Volume controls.

EARTHQUAKER DEVICES PLUMES OVERDRIVE PEDAL
Plumes is an overdrive based around that classically overdone tube-like circuit you all know, and amps crave. We’ve done away with the sacred 4558 IC and the classic BJT transistor buffers and replaced them with JFET operational amplifiers and raised the input impedance to nearly 10 megaohms! We’ve also added three different clipping options for your consideration. Mode 1 is symmetrical clipping utilising a pair of light emitting diodes, this is the crunchiest setting the Plumes has to offer. Mode 2 is clean boost mode, this eliminates the soft clipping diodes altogether and leaves you with straight OpAmp drive. Mode 3 is an asymmetrical silicon diode arrangement similar to the stock screamer but with more output and clean clarity; the tone some people describe as transparent.

STEINBERG UR12 AUDIO INTERFACE
Combining an extremely compact design, extraordinary build quality, full iPad connectivity and the outstanding D-PRE mic preamp, the UR12 redefines quality for its class of 2-in 2-out USB interfaces. 24/192 converters offer you outstanding levels of audio fidelity, while the D-PRE gives your microphone recordings incredible detail, depth and dynamics. Includes Steinberg’s Cubase AU DAW software and Cubasis LE iPad app.
