Meris's popular Hedra pitch-shifter (see the December 2019 review in SOS) is to be made available in a ‘Lunchbox’-format version. The Hedra 500 offers all of the three-voice rhythmic pitch‑shifting abilities of the original, but in a 500-series rack-compatible format (see above). It’s due to ship shortly, retailing at $549. Also announced at the same time was an early version of an interesting guitar pedal not due to ship until the summer, the result of a collaboration with fellow boutique guitar-tech manufacturers Chase Bliss. The CXM 1978 (below) is a guitarist-friendly recreation of Lexicon’s 224 reverb from the late 1970s (hence the name). We hope to bring you more info on the CXM 1978 and a review later this year.
