Fredric Effects Releases the Standard Fuzz Machine

A recreation of the classic Ibanez Standard Fuzz.

North London, UK (April 24, 2017) -- The Fredric Effects Standard Fuzz Machine is a new version of the classic Ibanez Standard Fuzz, also known as the Bruno/Mica Fuzz Machine. A raw, crunchy, and roaring vintage fuzz with a fantastic amount of range. This fuzz has a distinct flavor that's in the same family as the famed Shin-Ei/Univox SuperFuzz, although less scooped and with more pronounced octavey overtones.

The tone switch provides two very distinct sonic ranges for the fuzz, and while one stays '60s garagey, the other adds more cut and fizz.

Well, the Nashville-based session star, producer, and frontman has played on hundreds of albums and 45 No. 1 country hits, starting with Jason Aldean’s “Hicktown,” since 2005. Plus, he’s found time for several bands of his own as well as the first studio album under his own name, All the Birds Sing, which drops January 28.

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.
