A dual-mode fuzz inspired by the psychedelic tones of the '60s.

Barcelona, Spain (July 25, 2018) -- Adding to the line of vintage fuzzboxes, Ananashead has unleashed a new fuzz stompbox, the MARK1, bringing a ancient raw style fuzz tone.

Based on the first three-transistor designs from the sixties, the MARK1 has a distinctive zippery vintage tone. Gated and spitty in the decay with tight bass and a ton of upper mids, the pedal offers two modes. One boosts the mids and suits the tones of Mick Ronson and Jeff Beck and the other one is more trebly and raspy that catches the "Satisfaction" or spaghetti Western tones.

The pedal offers the following features:

  • Two knobs to control volume and attack
  • Shielded inputs/outputs to avoid RF
  • Filtered and protected 9VDC input
  • Daisy-chain and wah friendly
  • Popless True Bypass switching
  • Low current draw, 2.5mA

The MARK1 pedal is handmade in Barcelona with careful selected components and has a price of 110.00€. The pedals are available and can be purchased directly from the Ananashead online store at www.ananashead.com.

Diatonic sequences are powerful tools. Here’s how to use them wisely.



• Understand how to map out the neck in seven positions.
• Learn to combine legato and picking to create long phrases.
• Develop a smooth attack—even at high speeds.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
