Making their debut last Friday alongside the new Rockcrusher attenuator, Rivera have announced a new range of stompboxes, "Shaman".
The Shaman range kicks off with three different overdrive pedals: the Blues Shaman is aimed at blues players; the Metal Shaman is for metallists; and for everything else the Double Shaman is a performer, with two channels called LA and Austin.
“Way back in 1976 I was modifying a variety of pedals from other manufacturers, as well as building custom pedals and effects racks, ” comments Paul Rivera Sr. “If you listen to Supertramp or Toto, those are my special chorus units. Between 1979 to 1983 or so, I also built a line of pedals called the Buff series. I’m really excited about the new Shaman range. One thing they’re not is another bunch of 808 clones.”
Powered by 9V battery or a regulated DC adaptor, these pedals are so new that UK pricing has yet to be finalised.
In the US the Double and Metal Shamans are expected to be just under $300, with the Blues Shaman at around $250.
