    If you've ever been an organist or in a band that has an organ player, you've probably faced a predicament or two. Most likely, you've shown up to a club with a thousand pound organ, only to be faced with a daunting triple flight of stairs. When you bring an organ, those are the breaks.

    Fortunately for spines and backs everywhere, Electro-Harmonix has created the brand new B9 Organ Machine pedal, which perfectly captures the sounds of a wide range of organ tones. Developed to match popular organ sounds from the 1960s onward, Electro-Harmonix's pedal can be used on anything from guitar to keyboard, making it so much easier to fit into compact live venues and recording studios.

    DuhPedalJoeGore

    While Joe Gore has done many things in his life, from music journalism to recording with Tom Waits and beyond, his life took an interesting turn a few years ago. While working on new Apple programs, Gore was tasked with creating analog sounds for the digital age. To better understand the art, he started to build his own amps and pedals.

    Despite keeping his hands in print and music, Joe has developed his own line of guitar pedals, which is now being carried exclusively by Vintage King. His latest pedal, the Duh Remedial Fuzz, is an epic example of Gore's vision. Sticking with a classic mantra of non-conformity and practicality, this pedal is capable of slaying with just one knob.
