MOD Kits DIY Introduces the Limited Edition Inducer

The Inducer is a Limited Edition tube distortion pedal kit designed around a New-Old- Stock 6189W JAN Philips vacuum tube.

Tempe, AZ (October 17, 2011) -- The Inducer is a Limited Edition tube distortion pedal kit designed around a new-old-stock 6189W JAN (Joint Army/Navy) Philips vacuum tube. This 6189 is a premium grade 12AU7 that was ruggedized for reliable operation in military mobile, shipboard, and aviation communications equipment, making it ideal for use in an effects pedal. This tube is characterized by reduced microphonics, excellent linearity, and long life. When driven hard, as it is in this Limited Edition pedal, it produces beefy distortion.

The Inducer uses the same classic circuit as the MOD Persuader Kit, but the 6189 gives the Inducer rich distorted fuzz. There will only be 30 of these Limited Edition kits and each has a hand-designed box.

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
