Mod Kits DIY Introduces the Aggressor

A high-gain pedal with plenty of chunk and ear-splitting pinch harmonics.

Tempe, AZ (September 3, 2014) -- The Aggressor is high-gain distortion pedal kit that delivers contemporary distortion with plenty of chunk and ear-splitting pinch harmonics. The distortion effect goes from subtle break up to over-the-top molten distortion at maximum gain.

The Aggressor features true bypass, LED indicator, and a versatile tone control with a scoop/bump switch that shifts the mid-frequency response allowing you to craft a tone that fits your style of playing. It works well with humbuckers and single coil pickups, so you can turn any guitar into a lethal weapon capable of inflicting serious brain damage and spontaneous combustion!

MOD Kits and Assemblies are designed to give novice and experienced musicians the opportunity to build or modify their own amps, effects pedals and guitars. All kits come with easy-to-follow instructions and use point-to-point wiring. All effect pedals and amplifiers come with a pre-drilled enclosure and all necessary parts are included. All you need to provide are hand tools, a soldering iron and solder. The effect pedal operates on a 9V battery; for a longer lasting option, a 9-volt adapter can be purchased separately.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
