The Moxie is Indiana-based pedal builder Brian Wampler's new spin on a "screamer style" driver pedal, powered by the same classic 4558 chip found on the Ibanez Tube Screamer. Alongside the common controls for volume, tone, and gain are two switches—the Voice switch clarifies the mid-range through shifting the EQ, while the Fat switch enhances the gain structure, elevating the signal to boutique high-end heights.

Also onboard is a note quantizer and clock divider with classic computer keyboard buttons that give it a look and feel dripping in '90s nostalgia.

Colorado-based WMD has announced on Instagram that they will soon shutter operations—but not before going out with a bang. Three new Eurorack modules are on the way before the brand shuts its doors.

The first module, Legion, is an analog oscillator inspired by the Roland Alpha Juno. It features thru-zero frequency modulation and an analog supersaw wave called Swarm. The second module, Subway, is a scanning crossfader with eight inputs and a single output. Each input has an on/off switch, and you can smoothly crossfade between signals using CV. The third and last module of WMD is Orion, an analog stereo phaser effect module that gives control over several aspects of the phaser effect. Only 600 of each of these modules will be made. The Legion will be priced at $499, Subway at $269, and Orion at $239. Follow these modules below to be notified as they become available on Reverb.

Fender released the newest psychedelic addition to their Artist Signature line today: the George Harrison "Rocky" Stratocaster.

The effects sorcerers at Old Blood Noise Endeavors have just released the Float, a dual envelope filter pedal capable of producing unique movements and resonant sweeps. With its high levels of control and variability across its two independent channels, you may forget all about those quacky envelope filters of old, which can too often turn riffs into period pieces.

Buckingham, England-based pedal company Origin Effects debuted their Halcyon Green Overdrive pedal this week.

Fender Custom Shop also announced the Fender x Minions: The Rise Of Gru collection of instruments, a collaboration with the animation studio Illumination alongside the recent release of the newest film in the Minions/Despicable Me franchise. Each of these four Masterbuilt instruments—the StratoStuart, Otto's Moon Bass, Kosmic Kevin, and the King Bob—are inspired by a different character in the Minions universe and have blockbuster price tags, but it's all for a good cause. All proceeds from the sales of these instruments will support the Fender Play Foundation's music education programs in Los Angeles.

Make Noise has debuted its newest module, the XPO, an oscillator set to redefine what's possible with stereo analog modules. Designed to work in tandem with the company's well-known QPAS stereo filter, the XPO includes stereo pulse-width modulation, wavefolding, and wave shaping of its 11 wave outputs—five mono outs and three stereo pairs.

This 18hp module also features a hard sync circuit and the two 1v/oct inputs, making it easy for transposition, melody stacking, or more harmonic frequency modulation. Details on price and release date have yet to be confirmed, though September looks to be the target release month.

J. Rockett Audio combines the unmistakable vintage '60s sound of the Uni-Vibe phase shifter/rotary emulator with a one-knob spring tank reverb on its new Uni-Verb stompbox. Much like the original effect, this modern-day take on the atmospheric psych-rock staple runs internally at 24V, but can still run on the standard 9V power supply.

As shorthand for the Golden Era Fender amps, Tweed can conjure images of precious equipment, high-end Bassmans, Twins, Princetons, and more from the '50s. Mesa Boogie's new California Tweed 6V6 2:20s are instead "grab-and-go" models. Available as a 1x10 combo, 1x12 combo, or 20-watt head, these vintage-voiced tube amps are travel-friendly, and thanks to the built-in Multi-Watt switch, can be played at lower volumes and even at different operating biases.
