Larry Alan Guitars Announces the Harlot Overdrive Pedal

A versatile pedal that utilizes a discreet transistor circuit.

Lansing, MI (September 4, 2014) -- Larry Alan Guitars is very excited to announce the release of The Harlot drive pedal. She’s a versatile pedal that utilizes a discreet transistor circuit for flexible drive with simple controls at a reasonable price.

The Harlot is extremely dynamic and responds to your playing and guitar controls extremely well. Plenty of output to drive your amp and other effects with a flexible gain control to dial in the right amount of dirt. Lower settings of the gain control allow clean boosts and tone sweetening drive that's hard to turn off. The gain starts getting into crunchy overdrive with some slight compression in the middle range of the control. Further turning of the knob increases the drive and compression with the highest settings imparting a warm distortion to your tone. With the gain cranked and a hot input signal The Harlot can even give you an interesting fuzz character.

Specs:

  • Discrete circuit design featuring a hand-selected transistor
  • Operates at 9V via battery or up to 18V via DC jack for additional headroom
  • Polyfilm capacitors and metal film resistors for low noise and warm tone
  • True bypass switching with a 10,000 cycle rating
  • High quality Nuetrik connectors

The Harlot has a suggested retail price of $120.

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.
