Steel Panther have announced their second guitar pedal. This one is a digital delay named after their song “Poontang Boomerang” and it can be pre-ordered HERE.
The pedal was developed by guitarist Satchel and the team that built the band’s controversial “Pussy Melter” pedal. It has a “G Day” and “Crikey” toggle switch, as well as four tone parameter knobs including: “Distance,” “Feedback,” “Dry,” and “Wet.”
This news comes after Reverb recently banned someone from reselling the “Pussy Melter” on their website. A video regarding that situation can be found below. Steel Panther also commented:
“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!”
Gus G. (ex-Ozzy Osbourne, etc.) recently joined Steel Panther onstage as “Satchel G.” for a live cover of Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train.” The performance took place on February 19 during a show in Pratteln, Switzerland.
Steel Panther have announced that bassist Lexxi Foxx has checked into an “undisclosed sex rehab center” and will now be missing their upcoming tour dates. The band’s friend Spyder will fill in.
The group said the following:
“California rock and party legends Steel Panther have survived a career of living a decadent lifestyle surrounded by loud music, fast cars and beautiful women. That lifestyle of debauchery and proclivity towards random sexual encounters has finally caught up with the band’s bassist. Lexxi Foxx has voluntarily checked himself in to an undisclosed sex rehab. He will have to miss the current US tour that recently kicked off in Chicago. The band’s friend of over 30 years and backstage doorman Spyder will be filling in on bass for the upcoming tour dates.”
Drummer Stix Zadinia added:
“We love Lexxi Foxx…and his mother. We support his decision to enter sex rehab. We can’t wait for him to get back on the road with us after he learns how to have better sex.”

Steel Panther’s Satchel has shared a video of himself demoing a prototype build of his controversial “Pussy Melter” effects pedal. The guitarist previously faced backlash over the pedal due to people finding it sexist and disgusting. However, the band have since launched pre-orders for a limited edition run of it.
