(January 1999) FORT WORTH, Texas - Akai, a
recognized leader in the design and manufacture of
innovative audio products, introduced the new line of guitar
effects pedals at the January 1999 NAMM show in booth

Slated for delivery in February 1999, the five new effects
pedals combine the best vintage sounds with today's feature
options in a stylish and easy-to-use design.

The Akai Headrush is the first effects pedal offering a high
quality sound delay, tape echo simulator and a looping
recorder in one. User selectable delay options allow for
maximum control of signal output and include several
timing and level adjustment selections as well as the
feedback level for repeats. Headrush also simulates an
analog tape echo machine, providing four tape-head parallel
outputs for amplifier or mixer input, while the looping
recorder with overdub mode is a powerful tool for the solo

Headrush features left and right foot switch controls and
LED display. Depending upon which mode is selected, the
left switch controls the on/off and play/stop functions, while
the right side sets desired delay time, recording and overdub
options. The LED display indicates which effect in use and
blinks in time showing the delay time selected. Suggested
retail price of the Akai Headrush is $259.00.
