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.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.

A blind horse wouldn’t be impressed, but this beautiful, double-horned instrument with one-of-a-kind engravings helped make luthier Tony Zemaitis famous.

Though they never reached the commercial success of some of their peers, the Faces have no doubt earned a place as one of the seminal rock ’n’ roll bands of the late ’60s and early ’70s. Combining influences as varied as instrumental funk à la the Meters, traditional folk music, and a heavy dose of rhythm and blues, the Faces brand of rock ’n’ roll can be heard in some way or another in the music of countless bands that followed. After the Faces folded in 1975, all five members went on to continue making great music, but their chemistry together was undeniable.
