Well, Gibson recently sued Mojo Hand FX because "Mister O" Phaser could be mistaken for Maestro: https://www.madbeanpedals.com/forum/index.php?topic=29869.msg316654#msg316654
Carl Martin should sue them now because they have a "Ranger" Overdrive, Carl Martin had that first.
Who's willing to bet that this is a Tubescreamer or OCD clone?

Yep, nothing special sounding about it. I do wonder how they accomplished the gating in the distortion though.

Nice... Looks like there are internal trimpots for rate and width. Any guesses as to what this one's based on?

Ugh, I pretty much ignore the commercial gear world so I had started forgetting why I dislike Gibson so much. I didn't forget that I dislike them, just forgot some of the reasons why.

Thanks for the reminder.

Those LEDs are pretty cool though.

Here is a Gibson marketing guy commenting with some good info over on TGP. Sounds like a phaser is coming in the next batch of 5 this summer

I have a hard-to-explain sad feeling about these pedals.  Essentially, they aren't maestro pedals or even faithful clones of maestro pedals, right?

Those are going to be the custom shop runs that come later

Apparently, the names Ranger, Invader, Comet, and Discoverer are all old Gibson amp names.

It seems to me like Gibson trying to get pedal money. But no one associates meastro with chorus and delay. Only a couple fuzz pedals. I'm not sure what the price point is but it's probably on par with much better offerings by companies who just do pedals. There is nothing that sets these apart except the retro dated graphics. I'm waiting on the slash signature pedal 😂
