Egnater Silversmith
Egnater Silversmith

Sister pedal to the Egnater Goldsmith Overdrive, high gain distortion and boost. Similar to the Gold this Silversmith cranks the gain, articulate and quality build, well worth the price of admission. This series of pedals by amp maker Egnater are rather peerless in look and tone, big recommends.

Casio CZ-1000
Casio CZ-1000

This is a four voice mid-1980s programmable synthesizer. Using inexpensive mid-1980s technology (its street price in 1986 was $300), it crudely emulates an analog filter using "phase distortion"; it has a DX7 quality to its sound.

Clean, quiet, lots of gain, DI passive and active inputs, XLR inputs on front and back, transformer in and out--switchable. And it has that LF resonance setup to add a little low-end without being boomy. I can't imagine life without them.
