Hungry Robot Pedals Releases the Hungry Robot (hg)

An original circuit designed to push the limits of what a high gain overdrive can do.

Cedar Falls, IA (September 29, 2015) -- The Hungry Robot (hg) is an original circuit designed to push the limits of what a high gain overdrive can do. It promises unprecedented tonal quality and versatility that can’t be found in other high gain overdrives. This is not to be confused with its low gain namesake (the original Hungry Robot); this circuit travels far beyond its low-gain amp-like counterpart into the world of high-saturated distorted tones. The problem that most high gain overdrives face is a flabby, undefined low-end. The tone stack in The Hungry Robot (hg) works to tightens the low end and emphasize the mids and highs. Most of the original Hungry Robot’s success is owed to the unique internal controls. Like the original, The Hungry Robot (hg) has its own set of 6 internal dipswitches that allow you to drastically shape the overall sound of the pedal to fit any rig and playing style. Set to release on 10/1/15.

This rare English Tonemaster was made circa 1957.

The Valco-produced English Tonemaster is a rare, lap-steel-inspired gem from the 1950s—when genres and guitar design were fluid.

The 1950s were a peculiar time for the electric guitar. Innovators, designers, and tinkerers were pushing the boundaries of the instrument, while musicians were experimenting with various playing techniques and sounds. There was an evolution of sorts (or de-evolution, depending on your slant) from solidbody “sit-down” guitars, like pedal and lap steels, to “stand-up” or “upright” solidbody electrics. If you look at an early Fender catalog—let’s say from 1953—you’ll see the Telecaster (and Esquire), the Precision Bass, and then a whole bunch of steel guitars. There was a shift underway, and many manufacturers began to blur the lines of what a guitar should look, sound, and play like.
