David Allen Pickups Announces the Bazooka Overdrive Pedal

A low to medium gain overdrive with very responsive dynamics and brownface Fender-type sag.

San Bruno, CA (January 15, 2015) -- The Bazooka Overdrive Pedal from David Allen Pickups is a low to medium gain overdrive with very responsive dynamics and brownface Fender-type sag and midrange while pushing into Marshall territory. The gain structure is chewy with a great tube rectifier sag. It pushes not just the mids but the highs and lows as well so it has a wide tonal influence that gives you smooth buttery mids without loss of the highs.

  • Controls: Elevation = Volume, Chatter = Gain, Range = Tone
  • Load switch: Fat – Normal – Lard. The three-way switch in the middle position will have the OD at its brightest setting, as you move left you add more Mids and to the right adds mids and lows while retaining highs.
  • Through-hole component board
  • True bybass
  • 9v DC negative tip power supply or battery
  • Socketed OpAmp

MAP: $225

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.
