Greer Amps has a BRAND NEW Fuzz pedal called “The Super Hornet” and it’s ready to hit the streets!
The Super Hornet has been a long time in the making…at least in Nick Greer’s mind. Based on one very special FOXX Tone Machine in Nick’s collection, this pedal is a shop favorite when it comes to fuzz and anything octave. We took the basic building blocks of the vintage circuit, tweaked it, put a little bit of special sauce in the design by using NOS BC-107B transistors, and threw an added feature in the mix. You’ll notice that there is an octave toggle, like on the vintage units that these pedals are styled after…but, that’s not just a straight-forward on/off toggle. When the toggle is in STINGER mode, the momentary STINGER switch becomes active. You can simply stand on the momentary switch, to engage the OCTAVE for a lead run, then come off of the STINGER switch to return to normal fuzz, or even tap the switch, to flutter the octave on and off. This feature is absolutely awesome. When the toggle is in OCTAVE mode, the fuzz is permanently an OCTAVE fuzz, and the STINGER switch is NOT ACTIVE. The fuzz control goes from light fuzz with some clean, to raging wall of fuzz tones. The tone control is a wide sweep tone control. All in all, this pedal is a perfect addition to any guitar or BASS player’s tone arsenal. The OCTAVE even works in low fuzz settings!

Athens, GA (September 24, 2014) — We are happy to announce the release of a new product. The Southland Harmonic Overdrive is our newest offering, in the Greer Amps line. Building on the Lightspeed platform, we have developed what we believe to be the best overdrive on the market. The Lightspeed was built with the specific purpose of being a light to mild overdrive. The Southland is the next logical step for the Lightspeed platform—more gain, a focused midrange (not that annoying “hump”), and a bit of presence on top of the signal, to help cut through the mix. This pedal, like the Lightspeed, is touch sensitive, responds to pick attack, and has dynamics that just won’t stop. On top of that, we’ve selected a chip to drive the Southland that takes it to the next level.
The Southland is available for dealers to pre-order now. We will be officially releasing these, for shipping, and publishing them on our website on October 14, 2014. We will be building up a stockpile of these units, in hopes that we won’t get bogged down on the production side of things with the Southland.

Greer Amps have released the 390 Vintage OD/Preamp, and the new 2014 edition Ghetto Stomp. The 390 is based on the old school DOD 250, but with a number of improvements, to make it blend with your rig better, and sound awesome. The 2014 edition Ghetto Stomp is powder coated and screen printed, with a bit more treble and gain than the hand painted version. Both pedals are hand-wired by us, here in Athens, GA.

Lightspeed Organic Overdrive – Greer Amps
This is a demo of the Lightspeed Organic Overdrive – Greer Amps.
From their Website:
“The Lightspeed Organic Overdrive is a very natural sounding overdrive. Why “organic”? Well, simply put, it’s the clearest, most natural feeling, and best overdrive we’ve heard for the player looking for a natural drive tone. Blending with the tone of the guitar and amplifier, this pedal has rich harmonics and complex but smooth clipping. The Lightspeed Overdrive is sensitive to pick attack and has a different “feel” than other overdrives. The Lightspeed can be set to be “transparent,” but can also drive your signal to the edge.”
