Mu-Fx Unveils the Boostron 3

A three-in-one pedal that was created in cooperation with Rand Anderson.

Encinitas, CA (March 17, 2016) -- Musitronics founder Mike Beigel, creator of the fabled Mu-Tron III, has collaborated with professional guitarist Rand Anderson to develop a unique new stompbox for guitar. In a compact and robust aluminum enclosure, this pedal is packed with features that drive, compress and overdrive your guitar and control other pedals that are attached to it.

The NEW Mu-FX Boostron 3 is three pedals in one… and three you might never want to turn off:

  • BLASTER: Based upon an Alembic Stratoblaster® FET clean boost preamp
  • SQUEEZER: Based upon a Musitronics/Dan Armstrong Orange Squeezer compressor
  • SLACKER: Based upon a Pro Co RAT versatile distortion processor
  • FX LOOP: For inserting additional effects within the signal processing chain

Price: $299.95

This rare English Tonemaster was made circa 1957.

The Valco-produced English Tonemaster is a rare, lap-steel-inspired gem from the 1950s—when genres and guitar design were fluid.

The 1950s were a peculiar time for the electric guitar. Innovators, designers, and tinkerers were pushing the boundaries of the instrument, while musicians were experimenting with various playing techniques and sounds. There was an evolution of sorts (or de-evolution, depending on your slant) from solidbody “sit-down” guitars, like pedal and lap steels, to “stand-up” or “upright” solidbody electrics. If you look at an early Fender catalog—let’s say from 1953—you’ll see the Telecaster (and Esquire), the Precision Bass, and then a whole bunch of steel guitars. There was a shift underway, and many manufacturers began to blur the lines of what a guitar should look, sound, and play like.
