This week we take a quick look at the new and already sold-out 1981 Inventions LVL overdrive pedal. Then we get serious about tuning with the yet-to-be-released Evertune Bass Bridge and the all-new compact Peterson StroboStomp Mini tuner pedal.

1981 Inventions

1981 Inventions has announced an all-new overdrive pedal named the LVL.

It is described as a non-transparent overdrive pedal, designed to emphasise natural harmonics and dynamic range, with a light-clipping circuit, plus an op-amp boost.

Apparently, the first batch has already sold out and the second batch is due around 6 June. I’m guessing these will sell out pretty quickly as well, as many players love their DRV pedal and so will also want to get this new one.

MSRP – USD 229

Evertune Bass Bridge

Finally, bass players have access to the Evertune Bass Bridge and all it offers.

The electric guitar version has been available for over 10 years and ensures perfect tuning stability. The special feature of the bass variant is that the strings are clamped once and then perfectly held on tension via a special spring mechanism and thus avoiding any tuning stability upsets.

It is not yet clear how complex the installation or conversion will be, or the price for the new bass version of the bridge. I’m guessing that these will be perfect for extended tunings and especially on the lower strings. As bass players need to retain the thump and stay sounding in tune.

MSRP – TBC

Peterson StroboStomp Mini

The new Peterson StroboStomp Mini offers the advantages of the large pedal version just in a far smaller housing. It offers 0.1 cent accuracy, plus over 80 sweetened and guided tunings. Being so small and light it fits on almost every pedalboard or in the accessory compartment of a gig bag.

Perfect for players that require high accuracy and multiple tunings.
