With a new album currently garnering rave reviews and press worldwide, Mesopotamian metal group, Melechesh, announce the first leg of their European tour. Relying on a Prophesy II for their crushing guitar sounds, the group promises to appear at a number of huge festivals this summer as well.
Rocktron is once again pleased and excited to be included in the Tone King "30 Pedals in 30 Days" YouTube event. Reviewing the MicroHUSH and HUSH 2X, Louis not only talks about the benefits of the new models, but also explains why you want a HUSH unit in the first place.
"Who knew that one of the most impressive pedals for 30 Pedals in 30 Days 2014 would be so quiet."

Guitar Player Magazine’s July issue spotlights the Rocktron Intimidator Distortion stomp box, developed with guitar great Gary Hoey (who GP calls “one of the nicest guys in the music biz”). Calling Hoey’s signature product “a great-sounding, easy-to-use pedal that also delivers a ton of output”, Guitar Player points out that the Intimidator controls “are straightforward enough.” GP delves into those controls and writes that the unique Punish knob “sculpts mid frequencies for a wide variety of sounds, from light crunch to singing sustain.”
"It's tough to put Gary Hoey in a box, but Rocktron by GHS has done it." The quote from the latest Gear Review online from Guitar World sums up the tone and intent of the Intimidator Signature Distortion pedal.
"This is a seriously high-gain distortion pedal. t doesn't clean up well, it doesn't return phone calls, it doesn't whisper, it screams!"
