Barber Compact Direct Drive
Measuring only 2.3” wide, the NEW Compact Direct Drive brings a colossal catalog of vintage British voice to your pedal-board. We packed the most desirable sounds of the Direct Drive, Direct Drive Low Gain (LG) and Super Sport into one clean and compact pedal. If you like the sound of the early UK combos with kt66 tubes, it's in there. If you bleed for the sound of a 4 input head with a wall of 4x12 cabs, it's in there. If you live for the sound of a carefully modified master volume gem from the early 80's, it's in there too. The Compact Direct Drive uses a simple layout of three knobs, a gain toggle and a harmonics toggle to delivery it's wide array from elastic-bells of GZ34-sag, to the hells-bells of a tight EL34-crush. Throw away the clock, tell the family you're taking a solo holiday, there is a Compact Direct Drive on the way.
The Compact Direct Drive has real honest solder lugs for jacks, true-bypass footswitch, toggles and pots. There are no worries about PCB mounted thru-panel parts that can’t be serviced on the road, or that lead to high cost repairs. Nothing but the best tried and true hand-built methods adorn the interior of the Barber Electronics Direct Drive. The Direct Drive has a generous 2 1/2” of clearance between the front edge of the footswitch and the back edge of the knobs, no more worries about changing your settings with each click of your footswitch.
Akai E2 Head Rush
The Akai Professional E2 HEAD RUSH combines delay, tape echo, and a looping recorder in a single pedal. User-selectable delay options allow for maximum control of output signal. Real-time feedback and gain adjustment as well as echo rate enable sounds to be shaped with precision. E2 HEAD RUSH also simulates a four-head analog-tape machine with control of decay and spacing between virtual-tape heads to create complex multiple delays and repeats. The signal from each virtual head appears on an individual output for multiple returns when used with an external mixing console or multiple amps. Looping Recorder mode enables you to record and overdub layer after layer of sound in real-time, making E2 HEAD RUSH an unbelievable live performance tool. Depending upon which mode is selected, the left footswitch controls the on/off and play/stop functions while the right footswitch sets the tap delay time or recording and overdub options. The LED display indicates which effect in use and blinks in time showing the delay time selected. E2 HEAD RUSH empowers you to bring back sounds of yesterday, blend them with the ruggedness and flexibility of today’s technology, and add new functionality. Every effect-pedal board needs one!
AER Pocket Tools Colourizer
The AER Colourizer is a preamplifier for instrument or microphone (vocal or instrument microphone). You insert it into the signal chain between source and next point in the audio path (e.g. amplifier or mixing desk) to produce sound improvement – your signal will be stronger, richer and more stable.
AER Pocket Tools Dual Para EQ
The dual para eq is a compact, parametric 2-band-equalizer, which you can apply to a signal chain to lift or lower certain frequencies. Parametric means not only lifting or lowering, but also adjusting separately position and width of frequency bands. So it does not only enable you to equalize frequency response errors (hence the name equalizer) and to suppress feedbacks or resonance peaks, but it may also be used as a flexible tone control for purposeful sound manipulations. According to its application in a signal chain, the input stage of the dual para eq has been laid out unlike an instrument preamp (e.g. for pickups or microphones) as pure level adjustment stage. With the phase switch the phasing of the processed signal can be reversed if necessary. Finally the entire dual para eq device can be bypassed by pressing the bypass switch, allowing for a comfortable A/B comparison.
AER Pocket Tools Dual Mix
The dual mix is a high-quality „two-channel“ preamplifier for instrument/line or microphone signals. The unit offers simple, efficient features just like a small mixing console: two inputs, each for one microphone or instrument and line-level signal with switchable 24V-phantom-power. Separate active two-band EQ networks for each input. A 4-preset multi-effects-unit with two reverbs, one echo and one chorus. A stereo aux-in, line-out and DI-out, plus a stereo-headphone-preamplifier.
