FU-Tone Releases Titanium Hardware and Spring Claws

FU-Tone introduces titanium hardware and spring claws to their product list.

Washington’s Crossing, PA (May 11, 2017) -- FU-Tone, The original tremolo upgrade company, introduces new hardware upgrades. The string lock screws (standard and EVH D-Tuna lengths), saddle mounting screws, and nut clamping screws are now available in titanium. This corrosion-resistant element is low in density and high in strength, making it super lightweight and completely bulletproof. Titanium provides strength, durability, and improved performance as well as great tone for users

To assist in completing the tonal chain, FU-Tone’s spring claw is also now available in titanium. This option transfers spring vibration back out onto the body cleanly and clearly as a much better alternative to what some guitar manufacturers initially provide in the rear cavity.

When you consider stompboxes that have achieved ubiquity and longevity, images of Tube Screamers, Big Muffs, or Boss’ DD series delays probably flash before your eyes. It’s less likely that TC Electronic’s Stereo Chorus Flanger comes to mind. But when you consider that its fundamental architecture has remained essentially unchanged since 1976 and that it has consistently satisfied persnickety tone hounds like Eric Johnson, it’s hard to not be dazzled by its staying power—or wonder what makes it such an indispensable staple for so many players.

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.
