Last Fall, I helped to share the news about the first-ever guitar effects pedal being released by the legendary Steel Panther. It’s name was “The Pussy Melter” and if you want to recap that story please just click HERE to see what it was all about. Stick around to the end of this notice because I might just have a surprise for you regarding that pedal. Earlier today, the band announced their second pedal and I am here to share the skinny about “The Poontang Boomerang”. Dig in.

The Press Release:
California rock legends Steel Panther continue their fight for freedom of speech and their work to create a safe space for all creative expression in the music instrument world with the release of their second guitar pedal – a digital delay called the Poontang Boomerang. The pedal, which takes its name from a song on the band’s latest release Lower The Bar, is a digital delay pedal developed by Satchel in conjunction with the team who built the critically acclaimed Pussy Melter. It is made in the USA, has a toggle switch (G Day and Crikey), and 4 knobs so guitarists of all genders can customize the “Distance,” “Feedback,” “Dry” and “Wet” parameters of the tone to their individual liking.The Poontang Boomerang will retail for $199.99 and is now available for pre-order HERE

It has been brought to the band’s attention that the popular musical instrument/gear resale site has banned a musician from selling his purchased Pussy Melter on the website. The seller received an email from the Reverb Listings Standard Crew saying: “We understand what this pedal does. In this case, the imagery and the pedal itself is what we do not allow on our site.” A video discussing the whole situation can be watched below:



An official statement from the band regarding the new pedal and the Reverb situation is below:

“We heard from people all over the world that the eargasms they got from the Pussy Melter were amazing and that they only wanted more. Up to face any challenge, the scientific team of Steel Panther hunkered down in the lab only to re-emerge having created the world’s greatest digital delay pedal that would keep the sensations repeating for any guitarist male, female, non-binary and/or gender fluid over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over…GET IT? It’s a delay pedal silly!

As for Reverb.com, we think its ridiculous that they are biased towards the mighty Pussy Melter. We have seen so many comparably named items on their website for sale, yet they have decided to just ban our pedal from being sold there? If we’ve learned anything from this whole situation, selling your shit at garage sales is way cooler!”

Steel Panther are currently finishing work on their next album. The band is working with producer Jay Ruston and hopes to have some new material released later this year. They also are hard at work on their popular Steel Panther Television shows on YouTube: Cineminute and Science Panther. In the meantime, the band continues to tour around the globe and information on tickets for all upcoming performances can be purchased from: https://steelpantherrocks.com.

ABOUT STEEL PANTHER: For the uninitiated, Steel Panther was formed in 2000 and is comprised of Michael Starr (lead singer), Satchel (guitarist), Lexxi Foxx (bass) and Stix Zadinia (drums). Hailing from Los Angeles, the epicenter for rock n’ roll in all its debauchery and glamour, Steel Panther has established themselves as the world’s premier party band, melding hard rock virtuosity with parody and criminally good looks. Steel Panther is a global phenomenon with four full-length albums, touring across the world, platinum-level You Tube status and high-profile television appearances such as Jimmy Kimmel Live, Larry King Now, and FOX NFL Sunday.

Rolling Stone avowed, “There’s a reason Steel Panther have transcended their origins as a cover band playing the Sunset Strip,” while Metal Sucks declared, Steel Panther’s concept is genius…their songwriting is…preposterously snappy – and relatable.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve mentioned before that I am a drummer, albeit a very out of practice one so guitar effects pedals and all their awesomeness is lost on me for the most part. I do own two guitars that were gifted to me for some reason so perhaps its time I finally learn how to use them to just putter around. It’s pretty safe to say that I will not be rocking out in a band a few nights a week anymore since I don’t do late nights all that well anymore…..but I digress. What do you fans of Steel Panther think about this new effects pedal and more importantly, do you folks who sling that six-string think that you will be adding this one to your arsenal or just ordering one to save and eventually sell on eBay? Fill me in down below in the comments section and oh yeah, I promised a treat at the beginning of this post. During last year’s “Fear The Riff” Expo, I asked a talented guitarist to let me record him using The Pussy Melter effects pedal and this was posted to our Official Facebook Page. You can enjoy that clip below. See you next time.
