Dunlop has launched four new micro pedals that’ll prick the ears of all Hendrix fans.
The Authentic Hendrix ’69 Psych series comprises the Fuzz Face Distortion, Octavio Fuzz, Uni-Vibe Chorus/Vibrato and Band Of Gypsies Fuzz. All the slim stompboxes sport trippy graphics designed by ILOVEDUST, a frequent collaborator to Dunlop, have true bypass, and are powered by nine-volt batteries.
The Fuzz Face combines silicon and germanium chips, the silicon-based Octavio has an octave-up button for those screeching wails, and the Band Of Gypsies is a “bitingly aggressive” fuzzbox with – unlike the other two fuzzes – a tone control. Lastly, the Uni-Vibe delivers the warbly, Leslie-esque chorus tones the guitar hero is known for.
All four pedals will be available in September. For more info, check jimdunlop.com.
