Larry Mitchell sits down with Eventide's new Rose pedal and gives us his first impressions.

This is a analog/digital hybrid pedal that features almost a half a dozen different modulation sources.

TC Electronic’s all new BAM200

Here’s one for bass players. TC Electronic now offers an affordable 200 watt bass amp that fits in your Scooby Doo lunch box. 

I know, I know. A Scooby lunch box isn’t as cool as one with Spiderman on it. I happen to like Scooby better. At least I didn’t say My Little Pony! That’s for all the Bronies out there. You know, Bros who like My Little Ponies. Yes, it’s a thing.

Wait! Weren’t we talking bass amps! The BAM200 is a class D amp that features Gain, a 3-band EQ, Master Volume, Headphone Jack, and an XLR DI output. All for around a hundred and fifty bucks! Ive not heard one in person yet, but in the video demos it sounds pretty sweet!
