As an addition to the company’s highly regarded line of hand-made pedals, Majik Box will begin shipping the new Filthy Lucre modified-amp-inspired distortion pedal today.
Offering a multitude of juicy distortion tones, inspired by the modification work of legendary amp mod gurus from the seventies and early eighties, the Filthy Lucre is a finely tuned distortion pedal meant to be used in front of the clean setting of any amp to produce highly articulate, modified amp distortion tones heard on many legendary records.Highlights include:
• A full complement of controls providing amp-like manipulation of gain and tone.
• Authentic modified tube amp tone and feel.
• True Bypass Operation.
• Hand-wired and hand-built in Torrance, California
A proto-type Filthy Lucre proved to be the hit of the Majik Box NAMM show booth in January, with artists as diverse as Doug Aldrich of Whitesnake and Vic Johnson of Sammy Hagar & the Wabos wowing the crowds with the thick and meaty tones of the Filthy Lucre. Be sure to check out Vic’s demo of the Filthy Lucre at www.majikboxusa.com
and watch out later this year for Sammy Hagar’s next studio CD featuring Vic and his Filthy Lucre.
