Freaqbox – the company that introduced the three retro-cool Murmux analog synthesizers at the 2014 NAMM Show – contacted us to let us know that they’ve announced a name change:
Last week we had a trademark issue with a major company concerning our brand. They have an effect pedal under a close name. We clearly weren’t aiming into copying them or causing people confusion, so we decided that it would be best to change our name in this early stage of our company.
