The Bipolar Fuzz features two discrete circuits which can be combined.

Torrance, CA (December 3, 2013) -- As an addition to the company’s highly regarded line of hand-made pedals, Majik Box will begin shipping the new Bipolar Fuzz, dual mode fuzz pedal this week.

Offering a multitude fuzz flavors, coming from two discrete circuits, the Bipolar Fuzz features both Majik Box’s representation of classic fuzz, replicating sounds found on numerous recordings from the late sixties through the nineties to a unique sounding extreme fuzz, delivering otherworldly textures and tones. The two distinct sides can be used individually or together for even more fuzz mayhem.

A proto-type Bipolar Fuzz was used extensively on Korn’s latest release, Paradigm Shift, as well as Marty Friedman’s upcoming 2014 solo release, Inferno.

Specs:

  • Two discrete fuzz circuits which can be combined for a third, unique fuzz sound.
  • Lo-Fi switch on the extreme fuzz circuit for additional “sputtering” and “burping.”
  • True Bypass Operation.
  • Hand-wired and hand-built in Torrance, CA

Street Price: $269.99.

On Black Midi's Cavalcade, Geordie Greep’s fretwork is an example of the 6-string as a capable component as much as a solo instrument, never completely stealing the show.

Popular music and mainstream tastes may be more fractured than ever, but the guitar continues to thrive.

As we soft launch into the new year, I’m not waiting for the requisite guitar obituary in the news. It’s not going to happen again anytime soon. Why? Because as far as the mainstream media is concerned, our beloved instrument is not only dead, it's irrelevant to the point of not even being an afterthought. When the New York Times published their most recent albums of the year list, there was barely a guitar-based recording to be found. Still, there is not only hope, but also cause for jubilation.

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.
