PRS Pedals revealed

Overdrive, Flanger and Optical Compressor.                           

Guitars, Amps, accessories and now pedals. It was bound to happen as PRS grow in size and stature to rival the US Big Two.

Their first three pedals (they will surely grow the range) are the Horsemeat Transparent Overdrive (priced at c£269); the Wind Through the Trees dual flanger (at c£369) and the Mary Cries Optical Compressor (at c£129). All great names if nothing else!

Horsemeat Transparent Overdrive

Designed to enhance your sound without coloring your tone. Horsemeat adds harmonic midrange richness and overdrives without cutting out your high notes – all while giving you more available headroom. It features a robust EQ section so you can dial in your tone and has a wide range of gain on tap. Depending on the setting, Horsemeat can be used as a clean boost, straight overdrive, or even enhance your amplifier’s distortion by slightly pushing the front end of the amplifier’s preamp section.

Wind Through the Trees Dual Analog Flanger

Best described as two flangers fighting each other, resulting in a sound reminiscent of the wind whipping through the trees. With Manual, Depth, and Rate controls per flanger as well as global Regeneration and Added Highs, Wind Through the Trees offers nearly endless tonal possibilities. Bottom line, Wind Through the Trees offers hours of fun for any player.

Mary Cries Optical Compressor

An intuitive pedal that sounds incredible. Based on the storied LA-2A, Mary Cries will thicken your tone, help control signal peaks, lengthen sustain, and push your tone without losing definition or clarity. Depending on your settings, it can be used as a boost as well as a straightforward compressor.
