When you think of API, you do not think of guitar pedals, you think of industry standard outboard gear and consoles that helped define the American Sound. So when you hear they have announced two new guitar pedals (their first offerings in this realm), you get curious. Seeing that they are the TranZformer CMP Compressor pedal, and TranZformer GTR Equalizer pedal makes a ton of sense. When it comes to Eqs and Comps, there is no doubt that API knows their stuff. They has been an industry leader for a very long time, and make some of the best and most loved comps and Eqs out there. I mean, who hasn't used the 550B and 525 on guitars. So now having dedicated pedals that bring the power and sound of API to your rig........ that is a very cool offering.
As API Puts it:
“The API Select TranZformer GTR incorporates API's legendary EQ circuit into a versatile and compact guitar effects pedal.“
“The API Select TranZformer CMP incorporates API's legendary VCA-type compressor circuit into a versatile and compact guitar effects pedal.“
