    I never expected that Digitech would re-issue the legendary Bass-Whammy ... the mother of all envelope filters Mu-Tron III also came back last year. So what to expect in near future?

    Which discontinued fx-pedal(s) would you like to see next as re-issue?

    AKAI Deep Impact?

    I'd like to see someone take another crack at the Dipthonizer.

    From what I gather Biegel is doing the Mutron Octave Divider next. But you can always get those BYOC kits that are probably still going to be cheaper.. and sound about the same :ninja:

    I'd like to see Frostwave pedals back. They were an amazing Australian pedal company that made some really great stuff in the late 90's/early 2000's and then just inexplicably disappeared.

    I was bummed about this too as Paul Perry, the guy behind Frostwave, used to be active on DIY effects forums, and some of his devices were the first weird effects I was really interested in (never had a chance to play through any though). I had heard some speculation that he may have passed away, but awhile ago I did some deep internet searching and found that he had opened up a book store in Melbourne, Australia. Now the links to that business have rotted, so maybe that is no longer true as well. If anybody knows what's up these days I'd love to know!

    Interesting...

    All I really know is one day he was in business and the next day he wasn't. I had every Frostwave ever made, and felt they were really the best of the best in those years. A little complex to operate, but very beefy sounds, especially the Funk a Duck and the Resonator.

    I'd really like to see the OC-2 come back.
    Not some cheap and inaccurate rip off, but the SAME pedal...a bit like the white face rat reissue, which i hear is an exact and accurate '80s Rat.

    I'd also see the mutron micro V come back in a small box-barbershop size( or ever 1590a...?).
