MBS Effectos Releases the Evolution Volume Pedal

The Evolution is an active volume pedal with a buffer that can be used as a line driver.

Buenos Aires, Argentina (March 5, 2014) -- The Evolution is an active volume pedal with a very transparent buffer that can be used as a line driver as well. With this pedal you can control the instrument volume without any tonal change. Because it’s buffered you can place it anywhere in the signal chain, you’ll need only one model of volume pedal!. It has a buffered Tuner output (not affected by the volumen variations) to easily use a tuner without any noises or tonal changes. The mechanical sweep it’s wide and smooth, is really easy to perform volume swells and even you can use the Tuner out to split the signal into dry/wet stereo and use the pedal to blend in the effects.


  • Buffered output and Tuner output.
  • Super-Transparent analog circuitry.
  • Line Driver capability.
  • 9VDC to 18VDC operation.
  • Wide and smooth sweep.

The Evoution carry a suggested retail price of $120.00.

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.

Diatonic sequences are powerful tools. Here’s how to use them wisely.



• Understand how to map out the neck in seven positions.
• 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.
