A three-knob distortion that's part of the company's Three Naked Men series.

Florence, Italy (September 7, 2018) -- Dophix presents the heroic pedal that is part of the Three Naked Men trilogy, pedals inspired by David, Neptune, and Perseus, heroic figures which embody the ideals of strength and courage and also masterpieces of sculpture, symbols of Florence, the cradle of the Dophix pedals.

This pedal is characterized by a strong sound and character. The care taken in the creation of the circuit and the warm characteristic of the sound make it a pedal with a very wide range of action, in the studio as well as during live evenings.

  • Analog effect
  • Jack input/output placed sideways to the pedal
  • Three controls dedicated to the gain, tone (Gas), and volume
  • The front LED indicates the status of the effect activation
  • The dynamic gain control allows to obtain a wide range of distortion
  • True bypass switch and carbon paste resistors

David distortion is available now for $200.

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
