BEETRONICS FX OCTAHIVE & WHOCTAHELL

Californian indie pedal builder Beetronix promises honey-sweet tones fit for a queen – so will these two drop-dead gorgeous octave fuzzes get Richard Purvis buzzing?

About The Guitar Magazine

The September 2018 issue of The Guitar Magazine is on sale now! This month we find out if Marshall’s wallet-friendly new Origin series delivers what everyone has been waiting for from the legendary British amp brand. We also tip our hats to the 10 greatest Marshall tones in rock history and find out how they were made – Messrs Clapton and Hendrix feature heavily but there are one or two surprises, too... Originators and trailblazers are something of a theme in this month’s mag – inside you’ll also find interviews with Doors star Robby Krieger, a celebration of the genius of Seth Lover and a close-up and personal look at the solidbody electric that started it all: a 1950 Fender Broadcaster. Elsewhere in gear we round-up the best products from the recent Summer NAMM show in Nashville and review a pile of great new products from Rick Turner, Stone Deaf, Lowden, Eastman and more. As if all that wasn’t enough there are three fantastic competitions, giving you he chance to win a Fender Player Stratocaster, House Of Tone pickups and a luxury Pinegrove strap.
