NAMM 2023Universal Audio announces new UAFX Pedals

Universal Audio

Universal Audio has introduced three new additions to the UAFX pedal lineup. Built upon powerful UAFX dual‑engine processing and UA's analog modeling, UA says the new Del‑Verb Ambience Companion, Galaxy '74 Tape Echo & Reverb, and Max Dual Preamp & Compressor pedals deliver expressive tones in three vintage‑inspired stompboxes.

We are excited to unveil the newest additions to our UAFX pedal lineup. These pedals not only sound incredible, but weave seamlessly into the fabric of UA's legacy — delivering on our dedication to craftsmanship and creating gear that will inspire generations.

Bill Putnam Jr., CEO of Universal Audio
