ToneFreq's Daily Pedal: Whirlwind Rochester Series

I received a nice Tweet this week from a music store about these new Whirlwind effects pedals. I knew about the association with the original MXR company and was immediately intrigued. Word is on the street that they sound superior to the comparable MXR product of today and sound just as good as the original script pedals. Check them out for yourself!

PS - They are also all HANDMADE in Rochester NY, USA! Now that kicks ASS!


"As one of the original founders of MXR*, I first brought these effects pedals to guitarists almost 40 years ago. They were the ones that started a revolution and no one has made them quite the same since . . . hand-wired, American made, built to last forever and with the exact same circuits and quality components.

It's the way we did it back then and it's the way we've approached everything we've done since. With this new line of vintage pedals, the ONLY things we changed are the addition of true-bypass, a 9 Volt power inlet and an LED to indicate when they're active.

To celebrate 40 years in rock-n-roll, we're proud to release the Rochester Series pedals. You're gonna love 'em."

- Michael Laiacona, President and owner of Whirlwind
