Caroline The Blues Expensive Amplifier Overdrive
I think we should blame Ben for this one. Last fall, he said to me I think for April Fool’s, we should film a release video for a fake pedal called The Blues and it would be all about being bluesy. Do you like your blooze vintage or‘modern vintage? Just have lots of noodley shred and bluesy talk. Maybe we could film you in a fedora.
Well, we can only blame Ben so much for this, because of course, instead of just sticking with the joke of a fake pedal, we actually made the pedal, and it’s pretty damn cool. It’s kind of like a somewhat gentler cousin to our Hawaiian Pizza transistor fuzz-drive. If the Pizza is 30% drive, 70% fuzz, then this is more like 80% drive, 20% fuzz.
Yes, we all know the best amplifiers for this style of music should cost more than the average working person’s automobile, but if you aren’t #blessed to own one of those, The Blues will deliver all the delicious artisanal mojo infusion vintage boutique hardwired bespoke sonic unobtanium you’ve ever been craving. On one mode the grit goes from minty well preserved black tolex to the warped particle board of a coveted pawnshop prize. On the other resides the crunchy, chewy sounds of that fraying tweed amp covered in drink glass stains and cigarette burns that the studio would never let you borrow cause they would never get it back.
