The Griffin Stompbox

Posted by KL Tech Muse at 12:55 AM on January 27, 2011

The Griffin Stompbox is a rig that produces virtual guitar effects using a pedal controller. It mimic classic guitar effects including the wa-wa sound, delay, distortion and more. The Stompbox bundle will come with the 3 pedal box, a heavy-duty dock connector, and a guitar connection cable. It should be available in early Q2 and run around $100.00. It will work with any instrument that takes a 1/4 inch jack, including guitar, bass guitar and keyboard. It is intended to work with the Frontier Design’s iShred Live.

The iShred Live is free in the iTunes store and comes with three built-in effects, more effects are available through in app purchases. Connect the instrument of your choice to the Griffin Stomp Box and then using the heavy-duty dock cable connect that to your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. Using the combination of the Stomp Box and the iShred app you can create the effects you are looking for. If you are a musician and need to practice, but can’t afford to buy a full effects board, then the Griffin Stompbox sounds like a great answer.

At the end of the interview Wit with Griffin showed off the Slap which is a flexible wristband for the 6th generation iPod Nano. The band is made of silicon and flexible spring steel. The thick silicon frame protects the Nano. When the Slap is off the wrist it lies straight and rigid. Slap it on your wrist and it automatically forms to the correct size and fits snuggly around your wrist. It comes in multiple colors and is available now for $24.99.
