Vancouver, BC - Radial Engineering Ltd. is pleased to announce the updated version of the long awaited Space Heater is now shipping.
The Space Heater is an eight channel tube summing mixer with high voltage tube overdrive.Company President, Peter Janis: "We first showed the Space Heater over a year ago and anticipated delivery mid-way in 2014. As we got closer to production, we discovered anomalies with tubes that were beyond our control. This forced us to pull back the product and redesign the circuitry to accommodate. To understand the problem you have to start by understanding the Space Heater's circuit. 12AX7 tubes have two filaments inside that enable us to drive two channels using a single tube. The original design was configured with a single input and output control for each channel pair or each tube. During beta tests, we discovered that the output from each side of the tube can vary significantly depending on the filament. And although the user could perform gain...

Melville, NY - - June 25, 2015 - - Korg releases the new PitchCrow-G, a smaller, sleeker, and more accurate clip-on tuner that easily attaches to any headstock and is perfect for all skill levels. The guitar and bass modes, strong ball joint clip, full color LCD display and 24 hour battery life, provide for a streamlined tuning experience.
“The PitchCrow-G’ s ±1 cent precision mode is great for quick and smooth tuning and a ‘first string over-winding warning’ appears in the display to prevent string breakage caused by over-winding the thin first string,” stated Brian Piccolo Brand Manager for Korg Guitar Products. “The most notable change is in the size of the display. Without increasing the size of the meter’s display area, we’ve significantly narrowed the unused space around the edge, resulting in a more compact tuner overall and slimmed-down the thickness of the body. The new clip uses a more efficient and simplistic design, resulting in improved strength and...
