Cog Effects Releases Knightfall 66 and Mini 66 Overdrives

The Knightfall 66 is a dual-voiced overdrive with plenty of tone-tweaking options.

Sheffeld, England (May 27, 2016) -- The Knightfall from Cog Effects has been supercharged into two new overdrive pedals.

The larger Knightfall 66 features two Gain knobs that can be switched using the A/B footswitch, as well as a Level knob for each Gain setting to ensure levels can be balanced. The Voice knob alters the low end content prior to the clipping circuit, and the Tone knob adjusts high end after the clipping circuit.

In addition to a flexible overdrive channel, the Knightfall 66 also features a filtered clean channel designed to blend with the overdrive channel in a more natural-sounding way. No more "side-by-side" dry/wet blending, just full-bodied massive tones.

The new Mini 66 follows the same 1590A size format as the T-16 and Tarkin yet still offers nearly all the features of the Knightfall 66. The second channel is removed, and the Voice and Tone knobs are replaced by the Fat and Cut switches respectively. Each switch offers three different settings, allowing the user to find a broad range of easily repeatable settings.

Each Knightfall 66 and Mini 66 is built one at a time and features true bypass switching, engraved aluminium enclosure and no PCB-mounted jacks designed and engineered for a life on the road.

Cog Effects founder Tom George writes, "I couldn't just replace the Knightfall - it had to be better in every single way. I set out to make these two pedals simple yet incredibly versatile, and I couldn't be happier!"

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.
