The Electro-Harmonix Switchblade Pro is a compact switching pedal with advanced features: True mechanical bypass, soft switching, high-quality/low-noise buffers, volume controls for all input signals, and high headroom. Switch between amplifiers or turn both on at once. Mix and switch between three instruments/audio sources with individual volume controls sent to one amplifier. True bypass helps avoid “tone suck” and noise from vintage pedals placed in the Switchblade Pro’s FX loops. It provides an adjustable volume boost with up to 6dB of gain for each input.
The Electro-Harmonix Oceans 11 digital reverb pedal features 11 reverbs—Hall, Spring, Plate, Revrs, Echo, Trem, Mod, Dyna, Auto-Inf, Shim, and Poly—and with its mode button users can select up to three variations of many of them. A Secondary Knob Mode yields access to “hidden” parameters for even greater control of effects. An internal Tails switch lets you choose between having reverb effects fade out naturally or stop immediately. Oceans 11 comes with a power supply and a street price under $150.
The 95000 Performance Loop Laboratory is Electro-Harmonix’s most advanced looper, featuring six mono tracks and one stereo mixdown track per loop, the capability to adjust speed over a two-octave range, as well as reverse playback and recording. It can record up to 375 minutes and 100 loops on the included 16G Micro SD card. Switching between loops is quick and easy. Robust inputs/outputs include: two audio inputs, instrument or unbalanced line input, left/right outputs, monitor out, and headphone out. Housed in a rugged aluminum chassis, Performance Loop Laboratory is easy to use on a tabletop or as a foot-pedal unit. It comes with an EHX 9.6V 500mA power supply.

Superego+ is equipped with Dry, Effect, Attack, Decay, Threshold, Layer, and Gliss knobs, plus Rate and Depth knobs for the effects section and four foot-switchable freeze modes (Moment, Sustain, Auto, and Latch).

Holy Grail of Reverb
The Electro-Harmonix Holy Grail Neo is a compact pedal that includes plate reverb. Housed in a die-cast nano chassis, it features the popular spring and spatial hall reverbs. A three-position toggle switch lets the user select the reverb style and the reverb knob acts as a wet/dry control. Holy Grail Neo is equipped with true bypass to ensure maximum signal path integrity when in bypass mode. It can be powered by a nine-volt battery and is shipped with a power supply.
