Red Panda Now In Stock!

Red Panda Aug 2015Red Panda effects are now in stock! All the way from Detroit, MI to Boston, MA. Assembled in a building that formerly served as a Model T showroom (the automobile, not the amplifier).

We have the Raster Pitch Shifting Delay, Particle Granular Delay and Context Reverb. Using DSP (digital signal processing) technology, these pedals “allow you to warp, shift, and bend sound in new ways, so that you can explore with curiosity and discover new ways to approach your instrument.”

Raster – a digital delay with a pitch shifter integrated into the feedback loop. It delivers a wide range of sounds including harmonized delays, reverse delays, chorus, arpeggios, infinite descents, chaotic self-oscillation, and continuously evolving soundscapes. The core of the Raster is a clean delay with up to 750 milliseconds delay time. Three pitch shifting algorithms and two reverse delay modes.

Particle – is a granular delay / pitch shifting pedal. It chops your signal into small grains and then does various strange, trippy, robot things to it, using the techniques of granular synthesis in real time. Results range from radical pitch and delay modulation to shimmering repeats to stutter/glitch sounds.

Context – Provides classic reverb sounds to place your instrument in a room, hall, cathedral, metal plate, or less natural surroundings. All of the algorithms are adjustable so that you can get the right combination of pre-delay, reverb time, and frequency response. The plate algorithm gives you control over low- and high-frequency response for crisp, defined reverb even with bass instruments. Gated reverb gives you big booming drums from the 1980’s, but is also great for adding power to guitar while maintaining transparency and space between notes. Finally, there is delay plus reverb for that versatile combination in a single pedal.

Summer Exclusive! Raspberry Baba Yaga Fuzz

Raspberry Baba 7_11_15

Our friend Brad Macomber of Nerd Knuckle Effects periodically sends us limited runs of his monster dirt boxes. The Baba Yaga, is an updated hybrid of the Tone Bender fuzz and the ferocious witch of Slavic folklore. This pedal runs two matched, NOS Russian made germanium transistors. As Brad describes it, “With fuzz sounds from thin and reedy 60’s style buzzy-buzz to full on super-squishy doom fuzz, the Baba Yaga’s got you covered.”

Custom Raspberry, Acid Etched Finish. S/N: 006

Tote Bags!


We got us some sweet canvas tote bags. Perfectly reusable for grocery shopping, vinyl LPs or the half a dozen pedals you just purchased at STOMPBOX SONIC. Modular Man Designs in Lowell, MA did a fantastic job with these.

String & Fader vs. Audrey Harrer

And now for something completely different…we will try our hand at live sound reinforcement/manipulation….on harp! And a string quintet!

To celebrate the completion of her debut album, Alphabet Rain, Audrey Harrer will be performing with the Cambridge Philharmonic Strings. She asked us to add reverberant washes and stereophonic experimentation. How could we refuse.

There will be several other performances and the debut of pieces specifically commissioned for the occasion. Hope to see you in JP tonight.
