Korg Pandora Stomp puts effects, tuner and rhythms in a pedal

Korg's Pandora range of multi-effects processors may have been in service for almost 20 years, but with the Pandora Stomp, the company is proving that it can still add something new to it.

As its name suggests, this packs its 150 amps and effects into a stompbox format, while also providing 100 rhythm patterns for playing along to, a metronome, and a guitar tuner. An Aux input means that you can plug in your music player and jam with that, too.

Check out the video above and the feature list below for more. The Pandora Stomp will ship next month in a choice of three colours. The price is £144.
