Anders Reuss, creator of the RSH-01, a Rowland S Howard signature guitar pedal, is now releasing his creation in the form of the RSH-02 (pictured right) this month.

The pedal, which combines two of Rowland's vintage pedals - a blue box circuit and a distortion+ circuit - into one, has been officially endorsed by the Rowland S. Howard estate, as well as tested and verified by Harry Howard and JP Shilo. Part of the proceeds are being donated to cancer research.

It's a limited production of 72 units, of which 60 will be for sale, and can be pre-ordered now.
