A limited run that features 60’s NOS silicon transistors and unique artwork.

Athens, Greece (May 9, 2017) -- The first official limited run offered by JAM Pedals to date, the Black Mucks host a NOS batch of early '60s silicon transistors, likely to be grown-junction devices made by either Transitron, General Instrument, or both, similar to the 2N335/2N336.

Jannis Anastasakis, founder of JAM pedals says that they sound incredibly unique and deemed the Black Muck's release a necessity!

The Black Muck is open and harmonically rich and compared to the standard Red Muck, it is more aggressive, looser and with Fuzzier tendencies.

The result is there waiting for you to unleash its sonic possibilities!

Each pedal offers the following features:

  • Three knobs to control Level, Tone, Gain
  • Early ’60s NOS silicon transistors
  • Point-to-point wiring
  • Unique custom artwork
  • 100 units only
  • True bypass on/off switch
  • 9-volt operation and standard DC input
  • Comes packed in a custom wooden box

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.
