NAMM 2018: Aguilar's Grape Phaser pedal on show

NAMM 2018: Aguilar Amplification, highly-respected New York-based purveyors of bass amplification, pickups and effects has announced its latest pedal, the Grape Phaser bass phase. 

 "The Grape Phaser provides lush, analog phase shifting courtesy of a simple, two-knob layout" say Aguilar. "‘Rate’ controls the speed of the modulation while ‘Colour’ feeds a portion of the signal back through the phase shifting circuit, creating new and super funky bass sounds!"

The Grape Phaser is set to be released this spring; we'll bring you a price as soon as it's confirmed. For more info, head over to
