Chellee Effects Releases the Ponyboy V3

The updated stomp features a late-stage bass control and a selectable set of germanium diodes.

Orange City, FL (June 28, 2018) -- Chellee Guitars and Effects announces the release of Ponyboy Overdrive, V3.

Our interpretation of the iconic Klon, Ponyboy has become a favorite overdrive pedal among guitarists for its pristine cleans and well voiced low gain overdrive tones. The new V3 opens up more possibilities with the addition of a late stage bass control and a selectable set of germanium diodes. The bass control is centered around 120hz and provides a boost or cut of up to +/- 15 db. It sits at the end of the circuit so it doesn’t interact with the gain control, but instead can be used to polish the overall output. The germanium clipping diodes can be selected using the new Modern/Vintage switch. The Modern tone uses the same modern production parts that have been in Ponyboy from day one. The Vintage setting selects a set of 1N34A germanium diodes that enhances the tonal character in higher gain settings.

Chellee Effects are designed and built with a no-compromise approach to build quality and parts selection. An in-house designed relay soft switching bypass, Teflon insulated MIL-Spec hookup wires, and our unique built-in PCB wire strain relief are all a testament to a “build it right” design philosophy. With the release of Ponyboy V3 we’re returning to our roots of direct only sales, allowing for this version to be the lowest priced Ponyboy released at just $119.

Handmade in Florida and backed by a two year warranty. Available direct only at

This rare English Tonemaster was made circa 1957.

The Valco-produced English Tonemaster is a rare, lap-steel-inspired gem from the 1950s—when genres and guitar design were fluid.

The 1950s were a peculiar time for the electric guitar. Innovators, designers, and tinkerers were pushing the boundaries of the instrument, while musicians were experimenting with various playing techniques and sounds. There was an evolution of sorts (or de-evolution, depending on your slant) from solidbody “sit-down” guitars, like pedal and lap steels, to “stand-up” or “upright” solidbody electrics. If you look at an early Fender catalog—let’s say from 1953—you’ll see the Telecaster (and Esquire), the Precision Bass, and then a whole bunch of steel guitars. There was a shift underway, and many manufacturers began to blur the lines of what a guitar should look, sound, and play like.
