ANAHEIM, CA (January 25, 2018) –- Hotone, an innovative force in guitar effects, amplification and switching, introduces the WALLY+ LOOPER, a mini looper pedal with huge features, at NAMM 2018. The WALLY+ is built on the original WALLY LOOPER platform, but completely enhanced in terms of power, usability and sophistication. With 11 savable loop Phrase banks and 8GB of internal memory, the WALLY+ can record and store 330 total minutes of loop time (up to 30 minutes in each Phrase bank) with unlimited overdubbing. Engineered to produce extensive, high-quality sound layering in an ultra-portable, roadworthy design, the new WALLY+ is the ultimate pedal for anyone looking to add a powerful looper to their effects setup. The WALLY+ LOOPER will be available in March 2018 at all major MI retailers for $129.99.

The Tempo knob’s center detent ensures users can always return to the loop’s original tempo. In addition, the pedal’s backlit Save button allows users to quickly store loops on the fly, and easily in dark stage environments.

Like all Hotone pedals, the WALLY+ was developed with a tone-first goal. It provides uncompressed 24-bit/44.1kHz high-quality audio recording and playback, and a true bypass design that maintains the authentic sound of an instrument. The WALLY+ also features a mini USB port for connecting to a computer to manage, import and export your loop phrases using the “Loop Studio” software (available via free download for PC/Mac).

ANAHEIM, CA (January 25, 2018) - –Hotone, an innovative force in guitar effects, amplification and switching, launches the Patch Kommander and Cybery programmable loop switchers that keep your pedals and effects in order, at NAMM 2018. Both models feature a compact stompbox design that fits easily on any pedalboard. The Patch Kommander and Cybery are currently available at all major MI retailers for $129.99 and $199.99 respectively.
Patch Kommander

The Patch Kommander offers four true bypass loops to guarantee a pristine signal, as well as an intuitive control panel that frees users from complex patch programming. In addition, a switchable input buffer can be enabled to preserve high frequencies through the signal chain.

The Direct mode is great for musicians who want to clean up their pedalboard’s signal chain. Preset mode allows for 12 different combinations of loops (any combination of single loops, up to four loops at once). This is ideal for musicians that want to turn multiple pedals on and off simultaneously.

Cybery

The Cybery offers four true bypass loops to guarantee a pristine signal, programmable MIDI control for commanding pedals and multi-effects, as well as a free mobile app to liberate users from complex hardware programming.

Direct mode allows users to individually control four loops, A/B amp channel switching, MIDI messaging and the mute/tuner function. Preset mode works seamlessly with the free “Cybery” mobile app to create up to 40 programmable presets. Presets allow users to assign any or all of the functions listed above to each individual footswitch.

The Cybery also features Bluetooth® connectivity for wireless programming and control. As such, the “Cybery” mobile app (free for iOS and Android) allows the different user-created presets to be stored on your phone. This gives musicians engaged in numerous projects easy access to all their presets. The app also comes pre-loaded with Global Profiles for popular pedals/effects.
