Lovepedal Releases Englishman

The Englishman is Lovepedal''s Vox-in-a-box

White Lake, MI (January 12, 2010) -- Lovepedal has announced the latest addition to their lineup: the Englishman Vox-in-a-box pedal. Here's what the company has to say about the pedal:
The Englishman simulates the classic AC vintage amplifiers right before the amp fries. I have found these vintage amplifiers sound best CRANKED and on the verge of failure.

The unit will also enhance the sound of any amplifier without altering the tone of your guitar. The Englishman has the ability to act as a super clean boost, semi clean boost, or with the volume & gain pushed higher it is capable of pushing any amp into beautiful harmonic breakup, overdrive and distortion.

With 3 modes of failure the "Fail" switch embarks new worlds of natural overdrive and downright amplifier distortion in a good way.

It flat out screams if you want it to or not. Just like the original English amplifiers of a time gone by.
The pedal is shipping now and retails for $219.00.

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
