The Calhoun (Mike Campbell Limited Qty. Signature 2-in-1)
The Calhoun is a 2-in-1 overdrive/fuzz pedal that is designed around Mike’s specific desires for live and studio performance. There will be two versions of the pedal, the standard production unit that will be readily available (which is the red with black knobs one pictured here) and a smaller quantity limited run version that has Mike’s custom A/B stage switching arrangement, hand-painted finish (designed by Mike’s daughter), as well as an autographed certificate of authenticity. Let’s go over the controls of the standard Calhoun.
Ruby Red (Butch Walker Signature 2-in-1 Overdrive/Fuzz/Boost)
Super New Pedal from the guys at JHS Ruby Red Overdrive/Fuzz/Boost.
The Ruby Red is a collaboration with one of our favorite artists, producers, and writers in the industry, Butch Walker. He is most known for his breakout work in the Marvelous 3, as well as his long list of producing successes afterward such as: Pete Yorn, Pink, The Academy Is, Weezer, Panic! At The Disco, Taylor Swift, Avril Lavigne, Katy Perry, Keith Urban, Fallout Boy, Ryan Adams, and many more. As one of the busiest and most in-demand guys in the industry, when he isn’t in the studio, he’s on a stage. Butch contacted us to let us know that he loved the SuperBolt and had been using it in session after session. We started a conversation about his live rig for upcoming dates, and the rest is history. He needed one pedal that could do everything he needed and do it in the simplest and easiest way possible. Primarily playing a cranked Deluxe Reverb and depending on his guitar’s volume control for much of his dynamics, the pedal had to respond like an amp as well as feel like it was an extension of his amp. This is how the Ruby Red was created.
Mesa/Boogie Clearlink (Receive) – Buffer and Line Driver
The CLEARLINK RECEIVE ISO/CONVERTER is the ultimate big stage solution for all instruments where signal must travel longer than 15 to 20 feet. It’s most common application is receiving a buffered signal through long cabling from its companion product–the CLEARLINK SEND–at the tail end of a Pedal Board and converting the XLR balanced signal that transmits back to a ¼” unbalanced signal appropriately matched for feeding an instrument amplifier.
Mesa/Boogie Clearlink (Send) – Buffer and Line Driver
The CLEARLINK™ (SEND) LINE DRIVER is designed to compensate for losses in Tone due to increased capacitance in long cable runs. With a high quality buffer and +12dB of available output gain, it has the ability to drive cable runs of up to 330 Ft./100M before noticeable degradation, when added in-line on the feed from Pedal Board to Amplifier. When combined with a STOWAWAY™ INPUT BUFFER on the Instrument, the CLEARLINK SEND forms an “Effects Loop” for the Instrument-Pedal Board-Amp signal chain that will reclaim the integrity of your sound through boosted levels and buffering or impedance matching. Whether used by itself, or with the STOWAWAY as a comprehensive “Front End” solution, it will provide the needed “stable impedance source” to ensure the pieces in your rig “communicate” well. It can be used for balanced signals via two different output jacks; standard 3-pin XLR or ¼” TRS. It also supports unbalanced signals via the standard ¼” mono jack. If you’re going to send your signal on a marathon, make sure you have a clear link to communicate… because you don’t want your Tone lost in translation.
Mesa/Boogie High-Wire Dual Buffer Line Driver Output Booster
The HIGH-WIRE™ is our Dual Buffer and Line Driver in a one-stop solution that addresses both Input and Output challenges in the same space saving chassis. Between Instrument and pedals, it provides a stable, consistent load for your guitar’s pickups, ensuring your signal arrives at the first pedal intact and full of Tone. From Pedal Board to the amplifier, it not only buffers the signal, ensuring optimum impedance loading and performance, but also allows for increased signal levels for extra long cable runs via the built-in Line Driver (Footswitchable Boost) feature. As with the Stowaway, all buffer circuitry is 100% discrete Class-A. The HIGH-WIRE also incorporates a fixed +3dB BOOST on a top mounted mini-toggle. The Footswitch is Dual Function and allows both the variable BOOST when hit once and a MUTE when held for a second. The HIGH-WIRE is the ultimate all-in-one Pedal Board signal loss remedy and will remove your tightrope Tone walk once and for all.
Mesa/Boogie Stowaway Compact Input Buffer
The Stowaway™ is our compact 100% discrete Class-A Input Buffer solution designed to remedy a whole array of Input challenges caused by a variety of issues. From impedance loading and mismatching, to changes in a pickup’s character and response as a result of varying effect pedals’ input impedance and interconnecting cables’ capacitance, the Stowaway provides the stable, consistent load your instrument needs to sound as intended. While the Stowaway’s footprint is small, allowing it to be mounted on the most crowded of pedal boards, its Feature Set is professional and comprehensive. If your signal does any significant traveling, bring along a Stowaway to guard your Tone.
ONE CONTROL TIGER LILY TREMOLO
Tiger Lily Tremolo is a tremolo that allows for the mellowest of sounds appearing only at the tail of phrases to heavy on/off and anything in between.
ONE CONTROL LITTLE COPPER CHORUS PEDAL
Little Copper Chorus is designed more to give the playing feel of a Fender Vibratone than a typical chorus and as such shows a modern use of an effect that otherwise has been overused for decades.
ONE CONTROL LEMON YELLOW COMPRESSOR PEDAL
More info coming soon.
ONE CONTROL HOOKER’S GREEN BASSMACHINE PEDAL
Hooker’s Green Bass Machine gives you the tone and feeling of bass tube amps and old transistor amps when used with a modern bass transistor amp that is common in many music venues and studios. When Hooker’s Green Bass Machine is turned off, you can get a modern transistor amp sound.
ONE CONTROL CRIMSON RED BASS PREAMP PEDAL
Crimson Red Bass Preamp is a bass booster designed to make the sounds of 60’s,70’s bass guitar. The pedal gives a deep bottom boost at a distortion level so low it makes mostly shimmers and combines this into a bass sound as heard on records.
ONE CONTROL BALTIC BLUE FUZZ PEDAL
The Baltic Blue Fuzz circuit is not a Big Muff clone but shares the same topology.
Some of the tones modern guitarists seek in Big Muff are those of Triangle and Ram’s Head. Despite the difference in actual devices, Triangle and Ram’s Head have almost identical circuits and their tunes are very similar as well. The Baltic Blue Fuzz is created to produce a tone that this generation wants.
TC ELECTRONIC SUB ‘N’ UP OCTAVER PEDAL
Sub ‘N’ Up Octaver is the new leader of the pitch-pack. Featuring our superb next generation octave-engine and individual blend controls for dry, octave-up and two sub-octaves, Sub ‘N’ Up is set to deliver flawless octave tones whether you’re playing complex chords or groovy single-note lines. And with the option of adding modulation to the mix via our high-powered TonePrint editor, for spacey ambient octaves, Sub ‘N’ Up Octaver truly is the definition of pitch perfection.
ONE CONTROL LITTLE GREEN EMPHASER EMPHASIZER/BOOSTER
LGE is primarily meant as a predriver and it also distorts slightly and LGE works both as a light dirt booster by itself but can predrive all kinds of distortionboxes and overdrives and fuzzes. Usually LGE works best closest to the guitar but there are combinations when LGE can go further down in an effects chain.
ONE CONTROL MINIMAL AB BOX
Use the Minimal AB Box to control the direction of your signal path in order to select amps, mute your signal, control what effects you’d like to use, and various other uses.
ONE CONTROL GECKO MK II MIDI SWITCHER
The Gecko is a great solution for quickly switching between programs on midi devices. With an increasing number of guitar pedals being built with midi capabilities, being able to access presets in a quick and efficient manner has become an important part of playing live. The Gecko allows guitarists to use two modes to access programs.
ONE CONTROL PRUSSIAN BLUE REVERB
OneControl developed a time-based pedal for the first time.
A battery operated reverb effector.
When OneControl was releasing various distortion pedals,
we started developing these battery operated reverb pedals.
ONE CONTROL PERSIAN GREEN SCREAMER OVERDRIVE
Persian Green Screamer. Be the world standard 100 years from now TS – We had a hazy visualization of making a tube screamer soon after we started working with BJF.
Designing this pedal was not hard but it was very difficult to see value in launching this product. Perfect sound is already available. Whether it is in low gain or with a small amp, the pedal makes awesome sound and it was just so perfect that we could not find anything wrong with it.
