Jack DeVille Electronics Releases Mod Zero

Mod Zero is the all-in-one box that creates all types of modulation and some special "holy grail" tones that players have chased for years.

Anaheim, CA (January 12, 2011) -- The new Mod Zero is the latest guitar effects creation by Portland Oregon boutique designer Jack Deville Electronics. Mod Zero is the all-in-one box that creates all types of modulation and some special "holy grail" tones that players have chased for years. Mod Zero is a 100% analog modulation box that features vintage and modern takes on famous and unheard sounds.

Specs:
• True Through Zero Flanging
• Pitch Shifting Vibrato
• Vintage and Modern Chorus
• Filter Matrix
• Leslie Rotating Speaker
• Jet Flanging, Phasing, and more.

Mod Zero utilizes two of the company's Click-Less True-Bypass Switching systems for two modes of operation and a unique dry/wet control that enables the user to dial in any modulation tone on the fly. There are six analog controls on the face of this petite enclosure. (3.7"W x 4.7"D 1.4"H)

All input/output/DC jacks are on the top face of the enclosure to accommodate cramped pedalboard layouts. MOD ZERO is powered by 9VDC or a 9V battery.

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.
