Torrence, CA (May 1, 2013) -- As an addition to the company’s highly regarded line of hand- made pedals, Majik Box will begin shipping the new Filthy Lucre, modified amp inspired distortion pedal today.

Offering a multitude of juicy distortion tones, inspired by the modification work of legendary amp mod gurus from the seventies and early eighties, the Filthy Lucre is a finely tuned distortion pedal meant to be used in front of the clean setting of any amp to produce highly articulate, modified amp distortion tones heard on many legendary records.

Features:

  • A full complement of controls providing amp-like manipulation of gain and tone.
  • Authentic modified tube amp tone and feel.
  • True Bypass Operation.
  • Hand-wired and hand-built in Torrance, CA

A proto-type Filthy Lucre proved to be the hit of the Majik Box NAMM show booth in January, with artists as diverse as Doug Aldrich of Whitesnake and Vic Johnson of Sammy Hagar & The Wabos wowing the crowds with the thick and meaty tones of the Filthy Lucre. Be sure to check out Vic’s demo of the Filthy Lucre below and watch out later this year for Sammy Hagar’s next studio CD featuring Vic and his Filthy Lucre.

Street Price: $239.99.

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.
