A single switch moves the pedal from classic fuzz tones to more mid-scooped sounds.

Los Angeles, CA (October 31, 2017) -- In celebration of Halloween, Massive FX Pedals announces that the Hypnotik Fuzz is now shipping! The Hypnotik Fuzz delivers bone-shaking fuzz hugeness with impeccable design, perfect for both guitar and massive bass tones.

The Hypnotik Fuzz is a hand-wired super heavy fuzz with controls for fuzz level and two-position tone switch for “Classic Fuzz” and a “Scooped Mids” settings. The Hynotik Fuzz also serves up a killer vintage octave blended into your fuzz tone.

Hypnotik Fuzz controls include:

  • Master Volume
  • Fuzz Amount
  • Two-Position Switch: In the up position for Classic Fuzz Mode and down position for “Mid Scoop" EQ which cuts out some 1Khz for a more pronounced bass and treble fuzz tone and a bit more metallic. Mid Scoop gives an increased low-end for a heavier tone and a more defined top-end treble.

The Hypnotik Fuzz expands Massive FX Pedals 2017 product line. Additional models coming soon will feature classic designs with modern features. All component and design decisions are based on tone with emphatic disregard for cost or compromise resulting in stunning tonal excess.

Pricing for the Hypnotik Fuzz is $199

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.

• Learn to combine legato and picking to create long phrases.
• Develop a smooth attack—even at high speeds.

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.
