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:

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Having seen Steel Panther for many years at this point I can honestly say that I still enjoy myself at their shows, even if some of the jokes are the same locker room ones that have been recycled and morphed ever so slightly depending on the situation the band finds themselves in. Yet with that being said the band is clearly NOT for everyone. Today, our world finds itself offended at everything and the slightest affront forces changes upon the masses. No one seems to know how to take a joke anymore and everything, absolutely everything must be totally politically correct. If you are one of those masses who is startled at the slightest cuss word I encourage you to go to a Steel Panther gig and get your comeuppance. If the idea of an over-sexualized stage presentation makes you head to the confessional, then I also encourage you to go to a Steel Panther show for a swat on the keister that you will not soon forget. I’m joking of course and not about the treatment, and instead more about your type hitting one of these rip-roaringly fun shows. If you can’t take a joke, stay at home and yell at people on Facebook. Find your inner Keyboard Warrior, it’s all the rage today. What do the rest of you think about this round of tour dates? Are we partying or what? Chime in down below.
Artist: Steel Panther Title: “Sexy Santa” (Single) Label: Universal Music Release Date: 11/23/2009 Genre: Hard Rock Rating: 4/5
With Christmas right around the corner I found myself looking for some other seasonal tracks to discuss and I was feeling like someone who should be on the naughty list when I realized that I had never before heard the Steel Panther original track “Sexy Santa”. It surprised me since I have been following the band since the release of their debut album “Feel The Steel” back in 2009 but with this kind of specialty tune its better late than never. Now, check those stockings at the mantelpiece and listen to my thoughts err read my thoughts about the “Sexy Santa” single by the Glam Rockers. Continue reading “Sexy Santa” (Single) by Steel Panther→
