Haunted Labs

A three-knob distortion that offers a unqiue tone control.

Adding to an acclaimed lineup of guitar effects, Haunted Labs has unleashed the Old Ruin, an inviting-but-lethal distortion pedal for guitarists and hellraisers of all stripes.


The Old Ruin delivers a broad array of distorted deliciousness, ranging from a somewhat mild overdrive all the way to higher-gain howling.

Offering a user-friendly recipe for mayhem, the Old Ruin supplies three knobs to unlock its vicious tendencies. In addition to Gain and Volume controls, it includes a specially tuned tone knob called "Texture" for dialing in the pedal's pugnacious character. "Texture" is much more than just an earthly tone control. It summons sonic nuances from the great beyond. Looking for something silky and stealthy? You'll find it here. Prefer a stinging, searing experience like a faceful of lava? Twist the "Texture" knob, wake up and smell the brimstone!

On Black Midi's Cavalcade, Geordie Greep’s fretwork is an example of the 6-string as a capable component as much as a solo instrument, never completely stealing the show.

Popular music and mainstream tastes may be more fractured than ever, but the guitar continues to thrive.

As we soft launch into the new year, I’m not waiting for the requisite guitar obituary in the news. It’s not going to happen again anytime soon. Why? Because as far as the mainstream media is concerned, our beloved instrument is not only dead, it's irrelevant to the point of not even being an afterthought. When the New York Times published their most recent albums of the year list, there was barely a guitar-based recording to be found. Still, there is not only hope, but also cause for jubilation.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
