The pedal features Hi- and Low-gain settings and a unique clipping section giving it a warm, vintage feel but with modern output and cut.

Chicago, IL (May 16, 2016) -- Chicago-based boutique builder Daredevil Pedals has introduced the new Fearless Distortion pedal. Designed to be much more versatile than the usual all-or-nothing tones, this features HI and LOW gain settings and a unique clipping section giving it a warm, vintage feel but with modern high output and cut. The Fearless sounds open and responsive like a cranked tube amp. This can deliver gain levels like a Marshall on 11, bluesy tweed combos, or saturated low end doom growl. Great for solo boosts or warming up a clean amp as well. Harmonic and full of big round tone response, this is a distortion pedal for every guitar player out there.

Features:

  • No buffers, so it plays nice with other fuzzes and boosts
  • Two different gain settings to dial in any style of distortion
  • Natural tube amp feel, harmonic and aggressive
  • Lifetime warranty
  • Runs on 9V DC jack or Battery
  • True Bypass, Handwired in Chicago

The Fearless Distortion carries a street price of $159.

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.
