Souce Audio Soundblox Tri-Mod Wah

 Wah can be an incredibly expressive effect, but it’s hard to find a wah unit that is perfectly suited to bass. And it’s even harder to find one that’s suited to grooving bass. Oh sure, anything with a low enough frequency range can handle the intro to “For Whom The Bell Tolls” with a bunch of distortion, but what about if you need a phat, philthy, groovy pulse?

NEWS: Source Audio introduces Soundblox Guitar Envelope Filter

Woburn, MA—Source Audio, innovators of the award winning Hot Hand® Motion Controlled Effects and the Soundblox Bass Envelope Filter, are introducing the Soundblox Guitar Envelope Filter. The pedal packs the power and flexibility of a rack-mounted unit into a user-friendly stompbox, staying true to Source Audio’s signature approach of offering maximum tone diversity with extraordinarily easy-to-use and intuitive interface.

The Soundblox Guitar Envelope Filter was designed in the mold of the very popular Soundblox Bass Envelope Filter. Immediately upon release, the BEF was incorporated into the touring rigs of bass notables, Mike Gordon of Phish, Kevin Walker of the Justin Timberlake and Prince bands, and Jai Dillon of the Jason Mraz band. Source Audio expects to see similar enthusiasm for the GEF. The pedal was already shown at the 2011 Winter NAMM Convention in Anaheim, CA and received a tremendously positive response. Both Premier Guitar and Guitar Player Magazines included the Soundblox GEF as one of the most notable products on the floor in their NAMM recap issues.
