Analog Alien Releases the Bucket Seat

Covers everything from mild overdrive to a high-gain assault.

(September 16, 2015) -- Analog Alien is proud to announce the release of its first single effect guitar pedal in the Fall of 2015. The Bucket Seat is the junior version of the already released and supremely popular Rumble Seat. The official release of the Bucket Seat will be on October 15, 2015. MSRP will be at a super affordable $199 USD.

The Bucket Seat is the same Rumble Drive circuit that is found in our 5-star pedal the "Rumble Seat" - which is herald by artists like James Burton (Elvis Presley), Stevie Wonder, and Joe Walsh (James Gang, The Eagles, Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band). Everything from mild overdrive to a full on high gain assault is possible with the Bucket Seat.

The sound of the Bucket Seat is never harsh or brittle. It has a smooth break up and retains a lot of the guitar's dynamics even at high overdrive settings. Adjustments can be made on the output, tone, and gain controls.

We’ll look at ways to use drones in a variety of contexts, from ancient to contemporary, blues to metal, traditional to experimental.
