"What’s better than a high-quality guitar effect in a pedal?" asks Harley Benton with its latest product announcement. The answer, it tells us is "Two high-quality guitar effects in a single pedal!". That's exactly what HB is setting out to provide with its latest release, the Double Pedal range which features six double-duty stompers.

Sticking with the 'double' theme, the six pedals all feature names that signify their dual-purpose. There's the Evil Twin (Analogue Overdrive/Tubedrive), Duality (Reverb/Delay, Double Vision (Analogue Tremolo/Chorus), Twoface (Analogue Overdrive/Tremolo), plus the acoustic-voiced Sugar & Spice (Digital Reverb/Delay & Chorus), and Double Jammer (Drum Machine/Looper).

Each pedal features a uniform casing, split into two sides with foot switches for each side, plus a full set of controls for each effect. What's more, all of the Double Series are true bypass, and each one (except for the Double Jammer) include a toggle which allows you to change each effect's position in the chain. 

Here's some more detail on each one, for more information, head to Harley Benton's website.
