Flying Mo-Jo Announces the JimiLee Fuzz

The company's first pedal uses PNP-3 transistors to help recreate the gnarliness of the Tone Bender.

Los Angeles, CA (November 11, 2016) -- Flying Mo-Jo releases the first of their effects pedal line—the JimiLee Fuzz, which is a truly unique combination of British Tone and Rock n’ Roll History!

Flying Mo-Jo unveils a most unique effects pedal, The JimiLee, the first real “Pedal Art” featuring original art from the “Father of Rock n’ Roll Art”, Alan Aldridge. The artwork is taken from the JimiLee guitar hand-painted, named and christened by Alan Aldridge – a 1969 Black Stratocaster that Jimi Hendrix gave to his longtime friend and member of Jimi’s 1969 Woodstock band, Gypsy Sun & Rainbows, Larry Lee. Although in 1970 Jimi and Alan created sketches for Alan to paint onto a Stratocaster for Jimi, the JimiLee is the only guitar that Alan Aldridge has ever hand painted. And yet here is more Mojo to this pedal…

With this Flying Mo-Jo PNP Transistor pedal we have the following features:

  • Hand selected PNP 3 transistor fuzz – like the original
  • True bypass on/off switch
  • Powered by an industry standard center negative 9v dc plug thanks to an internal power inverter
  • Transistors are hand selected for tone, gain and leakage to achieve that classic fuzz sound
  • Original hand painted “Pedal Art” by Alan Aldridge, “Father of Rock n’ Roll Art”
  • Approved by Her Majesty

Ultimately, Flying Mo-Jo considers the MkI to be the most elusive fuzz tone to dial in. After hours at our testing lab and many transistor and resistor combinations, we are confident your appetite for the Tone Bender sound will be satisfied and you will wave the Union Jack high with original 1960’s British fuzz-tone quality.

The JimiLee is available in a $195.00 PCB version and a $300.00 limited edition, hand-wired classic single sided etched circuit board version.

On Black Midi's Cavalcade, Geordie Greep’s fretwork is an example of the 6-string as a capable component as much as a solo instrument, never completely stealing the show.

Popular music and mainstream tastes may be more fractured than ever, but the guitar continues to thrive.

As we soft launch into the new year, I’m not waiting for the requisite guitar obituary in the news. It’s not going to happen again anytime soon. Why? Because as far as the mainstream media is concerned, our beloved instrument is not only dead, it's irrelevant to the point of not even being an afterthought. When the New York Times published their most recent albums of the year list, there was barely a guitar-based recording to be found. Still, there is not only hope, but also cause for jubilation.

• Understand how to map out the neck in seven positions.
• Learn to combine legato and picking to create long phrases.
• Develop a smooth attack—even at high speeds.

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.
