Aclam Unveils The Mocker

Aclam Mocker pedal

The Mocker is an expanded rendition of the VOX UL730 series fuzz circuit.


While it's designed to be a must-have for guitarists in pursuit of those legendary Beatles tones, especially when paired with a Dr. Robert pedal, it's equally suited to any player in search of their signature sound.

Equipped with intuitive Bias and Tone controls, The Mocker empowers guitarists to explore a diverse soundscape; from the nostalgia of vintage tones to the crisp modern sounds: Faithfully recreates classic effects of experiment with an array of textures, plenty of sustain sound to a creamy tone.

To ensure authenticity, we've sourced the rare N.O.S Phillips OA200 diodes, matching those used in the original UL Series. This commitment to genuine vintage components has led us to create a limited edition of only 200 units. Designed and handcrafted in Barcelona headquarters.

Main Features:

  • Faithful replica of our VOX UL730 (S/N 3042) internal fuzz circuit
  • New Old Stock OA200 diodes, same used in the VOX UL series
  • Bias and Tone controls for a wide range of fuzz tones
  • Grey Hammerite finish; a tribute to the 60s British fuzzboxes
  • Graphics inspired by the lead tones from Sgt. Peppers album
  • Smart Track® Fastening System
MAP: $299 USD

The session ace’s signature model offers a wide range of tones at the flip of a switch … or five.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. Not long ago, I came home late from a band rehearsal, still overly excited about the new songs we played. I got myself a coffee (I know, it's a crazy procedure to calm down) and turned on the TV. I ended up with an old Bonanza episode from the ’60s, the mother of all Western TV series. Hearing the theme after a long time instantly reminded me of the great Al Caiola, who is the prolific session guitarist who plays on the song. With him in mind, I looked up the ’60s Epiphone “Al Caiola” model and decided I want to talk about the Epiphone/Gibson Tone Expressor system that was used in this guitar.

Embracing the idea of an acoustic flattop made with anything other than wood can, understandably, be tricky stuff. There’s a lot of precedent for excellent-sounding acoustics built with alternative materials, though. Carbon-fiber flattops can sound amazing and I’ve been hooked by the sound and playability of Ovation and Adamas instruments many times.
