I was in NYC this last weekend and got the scoop on what going on with our beloved Pigtronix. Phi Echolution: The Phi Echolution has been delayed because the initial order was accidentally painted pink so they had to be redone. Saddly, no rare pink release, just accross the board delays. Everyone who I talked to who saw Koltai demo it said it was amazing, but who knows when they'll actually ship to our area. Attack Sustain: 30th Street Guitars in Manhattan has them. They're very cool, but little more than an updated Attack Decay/Slow Gear/Slow Volume. It tracks better than anything I've played and the sustain bit is cool, but not that cool. It's still envelope based, so it isn't a reverse tape delay type of effect (which is what I thought they might have meant on their page). The sustain function lets your note ring at full volume pretty much as long as there's any sort of signal coming from the string, but definately does not resemble an ebow like the Pigtronix page suggested. It also has upper harmonics which can be added in, but this amounts to distortion and gets closer to the ebow-overdriving-your-preamp sound. In any case, it was interesting, but it is just a redesign of the EHX Attack Decay (with the help of the original designer), so there's nothing revolutionary here -- I'll stick with my ebow.
