Fredric Effects Announces the Accomplished Badger

An original two-stage boost with an opamp buffer/boost driving a germanium transistor gain stage.

North London (September 14, 2016) -- The Fredric Effects Accomplished Badger is an original two-stage boost with an opamp buffer/boost driving a germanium transistor gain stage. The Germanium transistors used are individually selected vintage new-old-stock components, tested for optimal gain and low leakage. Because of the nature of these two gain stages, the Accomplished Badger can be used as a sparkly clean boost, to just push an amp to breakup, or for a grittier saturated sound like a torn speaker or an overloaded recording desk tone. More versatile than straight clean boosts, and the sort of effect you may not want to turn off, the Accomplished Badger is a very useful pedal to have around.

£95 RRP

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.
