Empress’ new reverb: “Reverb!”

Reverb_-_Top_a1cacb20-2df4-489a-a97b-8a4da4c88a18[1] At our recent Toronto Stompbox Exhibit we had the chance to check out Canadian manufacturer Empress' new reverb pedal (shipping on May 31st!) appropriately called "Reverb." Like its line predecessor SuperDelay, this effect seems to insert itself (both in size and concept) somewhere  between a regular "few knobs" stompbox and...

TEEN's 2016 album Love Yes is a playful aural kaleidoscope that follows in the footsteps of imaginative, brainy, NYC based pop bands like The Talking Heads and They Might Be Giants. In the NYC scene, these ladies are a force to be reckoned with, relentlessly prolific...


New Pedals: Walrus Audio’s Luminary

WA_Luminary_Placekeeper_web_1024x1024[1] At our first Toronto Stompbox Exhibit we had the chance to play with Walrus Audio's Luminary, and we were rather impressed.
