As Summer NAMM approaches it’s time to start looking at what musical magic will be showcased.

Germanium 4 Big Muff Pi

The latest pedal from Electro-Harmonix has made a vintage style pedal featuring two independent circuits, one Overdrive and one Distortion, that can be used individually or in series. Both circuits each use a pair of NOS NKT275 germanium transistors. For those of wanting some serious overdrive it features independent controls for practically everything and the volt dial lets you dial back the amount of voltage supplied to the Distortion side and create varying “dying battery” sounds.

44 Magnum Power Amp

Another from Electro-Harmonix presents, this pocket am is a smaller and more powerful 44-watt version of the 22 Caliber Guitar Amp, perfect for carrying around.

AC Duo-Tone

Fargen release the AC Duo, Ben Fargen says, “I’ve pushed this design to its limits, offering contrasting channels, and sustain for days.”

Bourns, Inc. are also set to release three new guitar potentiometer design kits along with product updates to its current line of guitar potentiometers.

Summer Namm will be in Nashville on June 18-20
