// TOM // Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier 100w Tube Guitar Amp Head

//$2,999.99//

“3 Channels of raw power! From glassy cleans to face melting high gain!”- TOM

A Legendary Rock Icon, Amazingly Versatile
It’s been more than 25 years, two generations of guitarists and several musical trend-cycles since the Dual Rectifier first unleashed its crushing wall of gain on radio. In that time many have mimicked, modeled, dissected and plagiarized it, but it remains firmly planted at the center of heavy music; a Rock icon.

Over a decade ago the Recto® underwent a massive facelift that greatly expanded its versatility and took what was a 2 Channel amp aimed squarely at high gain only – to a 3 Channel amp capable of roaming any style confidently.

While still leaving the widest, deepest footprint in heavy music, the Dual Rectifier has become the amp of choice for a long list of chart topping devotees outside the world of heavy.

THE BEST RECTIFIER EVER BUILT…PERIOD.

Better sounding and better feeling than any 2 or 3 Channel version that came before it, we had only one mission – To build the best Rectifier yet. Not an easy task but now with our patented Multi-Watt™ 50/100 (watt) Channel Selectable Power, an Improved Effects Loop, Channel Assignable Rectification with Rectifier Tracking, a dedicated Tuner Out with Mute and an all-new Footswitch, the Dual Rectifier is more capable than ever before.

But what really has us most excited isn’t all the latest features you see on the front and rear panels. While these are great and really useful, it’s the TONE and range that has us most fired-up!

We’ve unearthed a lot of secrets since launching the original Dual Rectifier and we’ve put this knowledge to use in the latest rendering you see here. Improved CLEAN and PUSHED Modes in Channel 1. Improved Modes in Channels 2 and 3 include a more soulful, earthiness in RAW, thicker layers of harmonics and more liquid gain in VINTAGE and tighter gut-punching attack in MODERN.

// JORDAN // Moog MiniMoog Model D Reissue Synthesizer

// $4,999.00 //

“Do you like to crush your enemies and see them driven before you? If so, then this beast is for you.” -JORDAN

 

The Minimoog Model D was the first portable synthesizer and served as the archetype for all electronic keyboards that followed. First released in the early 1970’s and the first to have a pitch bend wheel, this synthesizer gained worldwide acclaim for combining the colossal sound of Moog’s large-format modular synthesizers with the accessibility of pre-wired modules. Over the last 50 years, some of the world’s most influential artists, musicians and producers like Dr. Dre, Trent Reznor, Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock, Rick Wakeman, Keith Emerson, Parliament Funkadelic, Earth Wind & Fire and Michael Jackson have shaped their unique sounds and forged new musical genres using the Minimoog Model D.

This valuable sonic tool is now available to veteran synthesists and the next generation of electronic pioneers. Each newly built Minimoog Model D has been lovingly handcrafted by the employee-owners at the Moog Factory in Asheville, NC. The 3-oscillator, monophonic, analog synthesizer is securely housed in a dark cherry cabinet. The circuit boards retain the exact component placement and through-hole design of the beloved 1970’s era Minimoog Model D complete with midi in/out and thru. Same classic sound and tone!

Pitch/Mod wheel springs back to center
Beautiful dark cherry wood cabinet

// COTTA // RED PANDA PARTICLE 2

// $219.99 //

Particle™ is a granular delay / pitch shifting pedal. It chops your signal into small grains and then rearranges, shifts, and mangles it, using the techniques of granular synthesis in real time. Results range from radical pitch and delay modulation to shimmering repeats to time stretching, stutter, and glitch sounds.

Five delay and three pitch modes give intuitive control over random delays, bubbling textures, cinematic soundscapes, time stretching, and rhythmic glitches. Take a unique approach beyond conventional delay, pitch, flanging, and chorus sounds. Freeze notes with adjustable threshold for stutter, punch in, or drone-line effects. Lock multiple parameters to tap tempo or MIDI sync with independent note divisions for intricate rhythms. Access all parameters via MIDI, tablet, or use expert mode for front-panel control over all granular processing.

Seven pitch quantization settings allow shifting, detuning, and random jumps in octaves, octave & fifths, semitones, and other ratios. Pitch quantization changes the behavior of randomization and detuning, adding new ambient textures.

Multiple feedback settings allow notes to be recycled, repeated based on probability and/or number of repeats, or fade out naturally. Ping-pong feedback and random stereo panning create an expansive stereo field.

Our web-based editor gives you access to all parameters and configuration settings. The editor allows you to name and organize presets, download them to your computer and share them on patchstorage.com. We also provide a TouchOSC layout for expanded performance control on iOS, Android, macOS, and Windows.

The Particle 2 is performance friendly, with controls spaced for real-time tweaking and designed so you can explore new sonic territory while remaining in control. Use the assignable expression pedal or DIY-friendly remote switch for hands-free control. The Particle 2 is pedalboard-friendly with all jacks on top. With full MIDI control, stereo input/output, and +8 dBu maximum input level, it is also at home in modular setups or the studio.

Particle 2 won the Premier Guitar Premier Gear award. Read the Premier Guitar Review (9/2019)

The Particle V1, released in 2011, was the first granular delay pedal. The Particle 2 added stereo I/O, presets, MIDI, higher fidelity, and greatly expanded the sounds possible while keeping the lucid interface. Learn more about the history of the Particle in our blog.
