Two New From Carl Martin: Classic Optical Envelope & Blue Ranger Overdrive

From: news

"Classic Optical Envelope: essentially a classic envelope filter (auto-wah utilizing the same opto-technology as the Opto-compressor) for guitar or bass, with a bunch of cool options. The first footswitch is for fx on/off (buffered), and the second to select between the three modes (High Pass, Band Pass and Low Pass). Add to this the Level control for overall volume, Drive for how hard the auto-wah will function, Q for adjusting the size of the bandwidth, and Tone which acts as a separate Hi-pass filter, and you have complete control over your fx…from vocal like tones to funky quacks and fat wows! Housed in the cool new diecast housing with mini-knobs and cool retro colour, the Classic Optical Envelope can be powered by a 9v battery, but we always recommend a regulated power supply for optimum response!

Blue Ranger Overdrive: Equally suited to single coils or humbuckers and with a True Bypass Switch, it also incorporates a ‘dual-clip’ circuit to keep the sound un-muffled and clear at all levels. The overly simple controls (Level for overall volume, Gain for the amount of overdrive, and Tone for fine tuning your sound) quickly take you from big open Hendrix-y chords to saturated SRV type leads, and beyond! The Blue Ranger will actually cross the border into Fuzz with the Gain full out. Housed in the cool new diecast housing with mini-knobs and cool retro colour, Blue Ranger can be powered by a 9v battery, but we always recommend a regulated power supply for optimum response!"

Is there a good reason why a pedal maker would release a pedal - not issue a "coming soon!" teaser, but actually release a pedal for sale - without having sound clips or a video demo?

From that demo, it sounds more wah-like than a Mu-Tron/Q-Tron style filter. I'm more into the Mu-Tron sound, but this sounds like a solid alternative, and the price ain't bad.
