Steel Panther Aim For More Controversy With Upcoming ‘Poontang Boomerang’ Guitar Pedal


0

Steel Panther stirred up a shitstorm last year with the release of their “Pussy Melter” guitar effect and had no problem capitalizing on the headlines. Originally planned for a release as a digital preset effect, the interest the name and imagery of the pedal generated morphed into a full-fledged physical pedal release that has since sold out.

As you may have suspected, the name of the effect/pedal did not sit well with numerous people. Not that the band themselves took the criticism seriously though, as they largely had some fun with the uproar.

Now it seems that Steel Panther are hoping to stir the pot again with their newest guitar pedal, a digital delay themed effects box dubbed the ‘Poontang Boomerang‘. The pedal is due to ship on July 11th and can be pre-ordered here. No doubt, the inclusion of the relatively standard “dry” and “wet” settings commonly found on digital delay effects are intended to take on a new meaning here.

As for the ‘Pussy Melter‘, it still generates controversy to this day, having been banned for resale on reverb.com for violating community guidelines with it’s imagery and name. The band commented of that and their forthcoming offering:

“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 web site 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!”

A new album from the band is in the works with producer Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Stone Sour).
