An oscillating sub-octave fuzz that features a voltage control.

Albany, OR (August 12, 2019) -- Adding to the company’s line of fuzz effects pedals, Mid Valley Fx has unleashed their Lo-Fi Giant, an all-original, oscillating sub octave fuzz designed to produce everything from crazy oscillating feedback to gating the oscillating feedback or getting low voltage ripping effects for the most saturated fuzz pedals you’ve ever played!

Turn everything up and get a sub octave massive fuzz that almost gets swallowed in a lo-fi oscillating feedback depending on how hard you strum, or turn down the fuzz while keeping the voltage high to gain more clarity and cancel out the feedback. As soon as you start turning down the voltage with the fuzz in the higher settings, be prepared for some sub octave craziness that when turning the guitars volume down produces a really well tracked bass synth tone. Voltage and fuzz work in conjunction with each other to give you a nice variety of sounds. From an over biased fuzz tone to just right or anywhere in between, there’s a lot of tonal variety to help you punch through the mix or sit back in the mix. Tone adds to the clarity depending on where you have the fuzz and voltage knobs set. Tone all the way down adds to the sub octave while turning it up increases the midrange for more punch. With tons of volume on tap, tons of saturated fuzz and the added feature of oscillating fuzz or no feedback at all, Lo- Fi Giant gives you the ultimate heavy fuzz tone.

Features:

  • 4 knobs to control Volume, Fuzz, Voltage, and Tone
  • True bypass on/off switch
  • 9-volt operation and standard DC input

The Lo- Fi Giant carries a street price of $130 and can be purchased directly from the Mid Valley Fx online store.

A lot of cruel fates can befall a gig. But unless you’re a complete pedal addict or live in high-gain-only realms, doing a gig with just a reverb- and tremolo-equipped amp is not one of them. Usually a nice splash of reverb makes the lamest tone pretty okay. Add a little tremolo on top and you have to work to not be at least a little funky, surfy, or spacy. You see, reverb and modulation go together like beans and rice. That truth, it seems, extends even to maximalist expressions of that formula—like the SolidGold FX Ether.

Gibson 1960 Les Paul 0 8145 is from the final year of the model’s original-production era, and likely from one of the later runs.

The story of 1960 Gibson Les Paul 0 8145—a ’burst with a nameplate and, now, a reputation.

These days it’s difficult to imagine any vintage Gibson Les Paul being a tough sell, but there was a time when 1960 ’bursts were considered less desirable than the ’58s and ’59s of legend—even though Clapton played a ’60 cherry sunburst in his Bluesbreakers days. Such was the case in the mid 1990s, when the family of a local musician who was the original owner of one of these guitars walked into Rumble Seat Music’s original Ithaca, New York, store with this column’s featured instrument.
