KYRO DULO – The Ultimate Pedalboard Amp?

KYRO DULO – The Ultimate Pedalboard Amp?

KYRO Audio, a small company out of Sofia, Bulgaria, has just released the KYRO DULO – a highly versatile Class D pedalboard amp constructed to be the ultimate pedal platform.

Designed and hand-built by some ingenious Bulgarian engineers with a big passion for guitar gear, the KYRO DULO is the perfect working musician, fly rig, and mobile recording solution.

Recently reviewed by respected YouTuber EytschPi42, the KYRO DULO is the real deal. Not a toy. Not an amp that works well with some FX but not others. But a useful, mature pedal platform that WORKS.

As EytschPi42 recently stated:

“A small company from Bulgaria did what H&K and Vox could not! THIS is the pedalboard amp that actually works!”

Watch playthrough + review of the KYRO DULO by EytschPi42!

Focused on making a bulletproof platform, KYRO Audio built a mini pedal that does double duty: record an album during the day AND play a gig at night.

The KYRO DULO can live on your pedalboard or fly rig, ready to go at any time. And if you’re not a gigging musician, you can run this thing on your desk and not take up a ton of space like traditional amps.

KYRO is currently offering a special limited run of 100 units (numbered + certified) shipped before Christmas. The company will continue with standard production in 2021 and has exciting plans for an expanded line of amp pedals.

Wampler Plexi-Drive Mini

Wampler Plexi-Drive Mini

First there was the Plexi-Drive. Then there was the Plexi-Drive Deluxe. Now Wampler Pedals bring you the all new Plexi-Drive Mini. Brian has managed to cram an improved version of the original Plexi-Drive circuit into a miniature housing and has added some new features. Since the early 60’s, Marshall Amplifiers® have lead the way in rock tones with legendary tight overdrive and coveted bass response. Early rock legends such as: Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Cream, and AC/DC helped in creating some of the most iconic rock tones ever and catapulted Marshall® into legendary status. Like the original, the Plexi-Drive Mini’s unique gain structure can cover everything from Vintage ’68 style Plexi tones to the all-out massive rock tones of a JTM-45® cranked to ten, or even eleven…

The all-new Mid Boost circuit switch, never featured on any previous Wampler Plexi style pedal, creates a powerful throaty tube-like boost by tweaking several gain stages of the circuit at once.  The combination of these switches with the Tone and Gain controls offer impressive tonal flexibility from a mini pedal. Many players love to run Tumnus, Clarksdale and other OD type pedals into the Plexi-Drive or Plexi-Drive Deluxe.  For the Plexi-Drive Mini, Brian implemented gain stage and EQ changes within the mid boost circuit to achieve a similar response – the result is astounding, and with masses of gain on tap, things are about to get loud! The Plexi Drive Mini also features our special Bass Boost switch which emulates the tonal difference between a 4×12 and 2×12 speaker cab.

  • Built in USA
  • High-grade components selected for their superior sound and response
  • Famous Plexi Drive sound with custom Mid Boost circuit and
    classic Bass Boost circuit
  • Volume, Gain, Tone controls
  • Dimensions: 1.5” x 3.5” x 1.5” (38.1mm x 88.9mm x 38.1mm) – height excludes knobs and switches
  • Power draw: 1.4mA at 9v, 2.3mA at 18v 9v power jack – DC supply only, no battery connection within.
  • Includes Wampler’s limited 5-year warranty

Friedman Smallbox Pedal

Friedman Smallbox Pedal

The Friedman Smallbox all-tube amp is well known for being one of the most flexible and touch-responsive two-channel amplifiers on the market. Now you can get that same tonal versatility, sensitivity and harmonically rich overdrive in a pedal. The Smallbox Overdrive packs the same intuitive control set as the amplifier, allowing you to dial in your perfect shade of rock, from vintage Plexi goodness to high gain madness in no time. It doesn’t matter if you want a high-output cleaner tone for pushing your amp hard or a thick gritty drive that will sit well in any classic to modern rock band, a sweep of the gain control easily gets you there. If you want to reign in the gain more, simply flip the side-mounted gain switch, and it will simulate the Plexi-Channel of the Smallbox Amplifier. Want to experience the amp’s accolade-garnering tone in the convenience of a pedal? Put the Smallbox Overdrive on your board today.

British rock at its best

Though the Smallbox overdrive can scream with an unabashedly rock ‘n’ roll voice, you’ll be surprised at how truly versatile it is. To get more out of the amp you already have, roll the pedal’s gain knob back, flip the gain structure switch to “lower gain mode” and get a killer dirty boost.

● Friedman Smallbox amp tone in a compact pedal format

● Responds to guitar controls and picking nuance exactly like the amp

● Gain control and gain structure switch takes you from gritty to hard rock in no time

Ready for your rig

The Smallbox Overdrive pedal delivers tube-like tone in a small pedal format which can be used either into a clean amp or to boost an already over-driven amp.

● Ideal for use with both clean and overdriven amps

● Controls for bass, mid, treble, presence, volume, and gain are intuitive for quick ‘dial in’.

● 2 position side-mounted Gain Structure switch gives you options from low-focused gain to high gain madness!

The man who knows tone

Dave Friedman has been building one of the most stellar reputations in the guitar, amplifier, and effects industry for decades. His clientele – which includes some of the biggest names in electric guitar – continue to rely on him, to keep them sounding their best night after night. When he puts his name on a piece of gear, you know it will get the job done.

● Dave Friedman’s name is synonymous with high-quality electric guitar products

● Assembled in USA with only the finest materials for flawless performance

● Every unit is inspected and tested before shipping

Review – Aclam Guitars S2 Advanced Pedalboard Kit

Review – Aclam Guitars S2 Advanced Pedalboard Kit

I think most of us have a love/hate relationship with our pedalboards. Setting them up in the first place is a pain. Having to cut strips of velcro, finding they don’t want to stick to the base of certain pedals, finding a pedal needs to be moved and then the velcro comes unstuck when you try to prise the pedal away from the board, then having to tidy up all of the cables. Finally, you get it completed and you’re happy, until a month later when you buy a new pedal and need to redo everything!

Aclam Guitars thought there must be a better way of doing things so they designed a much better solution. Continue reading →
