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

Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time. But since I seem to exist on a separate timeline than most folks, it was all news to me.
