New Releases, 2024/04/19

Six new projects: BOSS DM-2, Diamond Compressor, Cornish P-1, Phase 90 and more

When a Cornish pedal is only the fourth-coolest new release of the day, you know it’s going to be stacked!

Two of these new projects, the DM-2 and Phase 90, have been under development for no fewer than eight years in some form or another. Prototyping setbacks, abandoned layouts and feature redesigns kept them from seeing the light of day before now, but it was all time well spent and we are incredibly proud of their final forms.

Others, like the Diamond Compressor and Cornish P-1, are versatile with undeniably amazing tone. The Fender Eric Clapton mid-boost preamp gets a pedal conversion, and the Phase 90 is joined by its younger sibling, the Phase 45.

All in all, this batch of releases represents an enormous amount of effort spanning many years, so it’s thrilling to finally get to share them all with you.
