SUMMER NAMM 2017: Jim Dunlop has outdone themselves this summer, with offerings aplenty from MXR, Way Huge and Dunlop.
Headline-grabbers are the Carbon Copy Deluxe analogue delay and Echoplex-aping Booster Mini, as well as signature wahs for Black Sabbath’s Geezer Butler and Jimi Hendrix, the latter in the form of a mini version.
Hendrix also nabs four more signature pedals, which leave no tone left unturned, while Way Huge doubles up its Bonamassa Overrated Special and bassists get a sub-octave fuzz. Phewph.
We’ve caught wind of a few RRPs and availability dates for these, but not all. Head on through the gallery for all the available info, and visit Jim Dunlop (opens in new tab) for more info.
