Fargen Releases the Pete Anderson Tumbleweed Pedal

Fargen Amps have teamed up with Pete Anderson for the Tumbleweed boost/compressor pedal.

Sacramento, CA (June 4, 2013) -- Fargen Amplification announces the Pete Anderson Tumbleweed pedal. This pedal is based on the original Tumbleweed circuit released under the Sonic Edge brand, with a new design and now made in the U.S.A. “My signature Tumbleweed brings clear sustain and clean gain, all in one pedal, just the way I like it. It’s nice to have someone to speak with in abstract terms about tone … Ben Fargen gets it. 100%,”says Pete.

Multi-platinum and GRAMMY Award-winning producer, artist and writer Pete Anderson will bring the Tumbleweed on tour with him, in support of his next album titled Birds Above Guitarland, available July 23rd.

“Pete is such an innovator and really commands his tone. He is the perfect partner to help create a cutting edge country/blues line”, says Ben Fargen, founder of Fargen Amplification. The Pete Anderson Tumbleweed pedal is now available via preorder through authorized Fargen dealers, for delivery in July.

MSRP: $299

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.
