Best New Pedal Releases | August 2023

August is traditionally a slow month in pretty much any sector except for tourism, but the pedal realm was an exception this year, with a fair amount of notable announcements.

Numerically speaking, there weren’t a lot of new releases, but there were certainly some intriguing ones, in particular the announcement of three pedal lines by Universal Audio, JHS, and TC Electronic.

like a Chase Bliss/Empress collaborative delay, EarthQuaker’s first foray into multi-mode reverb territory, a phaser pedal by Fender designed together with a country legend, and a couple of real spring reverb pedals. Also some new klones and fuzztortions!
