Renovo Amp Works Demonstrates Stompblox Modular Pedalboards at Summer NAMM 2012

Renovo Amp Works Announces Powerful New Toys for Guitar Players

Get hands on with Walsh Guitars, Renovo Amp Works, and StompBlox pedalboards at summer NAMM 2013

Nashville, TN (July 8, 2013) Renovo Amp Works is pulling out all the stops for Summer NAMM 2013 in Nashville. Walsh Guitars custom handmade electric guitars will be on hand as a perfect complement to Renovo’s boutique amplifiers. In addition, they will be showing off their Stompblox modular pedal boards. New to the lineup is the Stompblox PR module. What makes the PR module unique is that it supplies power to effect pedals and input/output or loop switching.

The power supply section provides eight isolated 9V or 12V outputs (switchable), with two outputs optimized for digital and high current effects, one switchable to 18V and one output with a sag control to emulate a dead or dying battery. In addition, a bonus 9th output provides USB power for controllers or mobile devices that are integrated into effects rigs.

The Stompblox PR stands out from the pack by adding two high quality switches, allowing the user to chose one of three switching modes. One mode allows independent switching between two inputs and two outputs, allowing switching between acoustic and electric guitars on the input side and an amplifier or direct box on the output side. Another mode switches between two effect loops (or both in serial) allowing instant control of your pedal board. The third mode allows an instant switch between two loops with one button press, perfect for changing from a rhythm loop to a lead loop.

The Stompblox modular pedal boards and Stompblox PR module are slated for a Fall 2013 release. For more information, visit www.renovoampworks.com, www.walshguitars.com, or visit Renovo Amp Works at booth 1118 at Summer NAMM in Nashville.

 

 


Renovo Amp Works Demonstrates Stompblox Modular Pedalboards at Summer NAMM 2012

Stompblox modular pedalboards allow guitar players to customize and expand their pedalboards

Pismo Beach, CA (June 21, 2012) – Renovo Amp Works has announced that they will be demonstrating Stompblox modular pedalboards
at the 2012 Summer NAMM show in booth 1703. Stompblox are modular pedal boards for guitar effects that allow players to expand their pedalboards simply and cost effectively, customizing the layout of their pedalboard in a manner that works best for them. Stompblox modular pedalboards will be available in mid October, 2012.

Guitar players who use effect pedals often have more pedals than they have room on their pedal boards. When they run out of space, they typically have two options. They can buy a new pedalboard, which can be costly, but are then faced with what to do with the old, smaller pedal board. Or they can decide which of their favorite effects they can do without.

With Stompblox modular pedalboards, players don’t have to make that choice. When they need additional space, they can add another Stompblox module which easily slides and screws into place, expanding the space they have to mount effect pedals.

The concept was invented by brothers Paul Swanson and Andy Swanson after purchasing effect pedals that didn’t fit on their already full guitar pedalboards. Faced with the decision to leave off a pedal, or to buy a bigger pedalboard at a significant cost, they decided there had to be a way to offer musicians a pedalboard system that grows as their pedal collection grows. After developing the modules and applying for patents, the Stompblox modular pedalboards are slated for a Q4, 2012 release.

“The fantastic thing about Stompblox is that players can continue to add modules as they need them. Additionally, players can now make a pedal board configuration that works for them, whether rectangular, L, or U shaped. Stompblox modular pedalboards allow for a level of customization that hasnt been possible until now,” says Andy Swanson, President of Renovo Amp Works and inventor of the Stompblox concept.

Renovo Amp Works will be showing and demonstrating Stompblox modular pedalboards and boutique guitar amplifiers at the Summer NAMM 2012 show, in booth 1703. Stompblox modular pedalboards are currently scheduled for a mid October 2012 release.

Renovo Amp Works is a Pismo Beach, California based company that builds boutique guitar amplifiers, effect pedals, and Stompblox modular pedalboards for guitarists and musicians that use floor effect pedals. Renovo Amp Works is a privately owned LLC established in 2009. For more information on Renovo Amp Works, please visit www.renovoampworks.com.
