Guitar Gear Gems this week features the new Mad Professor The Green Wonder a low gain overdrive pedal, the KHDK Gojira Drive that unlocks Joe Duplantier’s signature guitar tone and finally the all-new updated, redesigned Orange O Bass.
Guitar Gear Gems
This week on Guitar Gear Gems we take a look at the new updated and revamped Green Wonder overdrive pedal. This high headroom overdrive/booster pedal is Mad Professor’s update for the previous Little Green Wonder. Then we check out the ultra limited edition and already sold out KHDK Gojira Drive which is the latest signature pedal from the boutique stompbox maker. And finally, the newly redesigned and relaunched 34” scale length Orange O Bass.
Mad Professor The Green Wonder
The new Mad Professor The Green Wonder builds on the Little Green Wonder overdrive/boost pedal. Now, apart from the Volume and Drive controls of the old design, you also now get Bass and Treble controls. This should help make it more versatile for users.
The pedal itself is described by Mad Professor as a high headroom overdrive/booster pedal, that has high output. So could be great for kicking the front end of a tube amp and getting you more saturation.
MSRP – EUR 245
KHDK Gojira Drive
Designed with Joe Duplantier the KHDK Gojira Drive is the latest signature pedal from the company. It has unfortunately already sold out online, but you may strike lucky and find one somewhere. This limited edition overdrive pedal was designed to deliver the trademark Gojira harmonics and has a powerful active EQ section.
Ultra Limited Run
They only made 333 pieces worldwide, so it could be a hard one to track down without getting scalped on auction sites. Hopefully, we may see a new batch at some point in the future. As I am sure they would be popular.
MSRP – USD 249.99
Orange O Bass
The original Orange O Bass was launched back in 2015 and now in 2022, they have decided to give it a redesign. It now features a solid West African Okoume body, with a purpleheart fingerboard fitted to the bolt-on maple neck.
Orange or Black
It is available n either orange or black finishes, both come with a black painted headstock. Specifications include a 34” long scale, a 43mm nut, a nickel top-loading bridge and a set of matching open-gear tuners. It is a simple single split pickup design controlled by volume and tone controls.
MSRP – USD 549 / GBP 399 including gig bag
