The fine Danish company T-Rex Engineering made a splash a the 2017 Summer NAMM in Nashville by spotlighting their new SoulMate Acoustic multi-effects pedal, which, as the name implies, is aimed squarely at acoustic guitarists. Like all of the company’s products, the SoulMate Acoustic is designed to be both compact and extremely durable, and made from high-end components.


Among the features on the new unit (available in August) are a compressor, modulation, adjustable delay, reverb with shimmer, built-in tuner, boost switch, six-minute stereo looper, a feedback killer, 3-band sweepable EQ, and more.   —Blair Jackson
