Classic crunch with a distinct British flavor.

Anaheim, CA (January 5, 2017) -- Put on your platform shoes and enjoy the vibe of NEXI Industries’ new 1970s Distortion DIS-01. This electric guitar effect pedal provides a classic crunch with a warm, deep growl, allowing the player to achieve the vintage British tone used in many classic rock recordings. But “old school” tone doesn’t mean old school technology struggles. NEXI’s engineers have achieved that classic sound with analog design and a cutting-edge, plug-‘n-play design that accommodates the needs of today’s active players.

Like all NEXI pedals, the 1970s Distortion was designed by boutique effect pedal creators, the self-declared “Vintage Analog Protection Squad,” who are committed to providing a unique tone without compromise. All NEXI pedals are true bypass and hybrid, and all are tailor-made to plug ‘n play. That means the 1970’s Distortion can be used standalone with a 9V battery or plugged right, an external power supply, or NEXI’s revolutionary pedal board. Aptly named “The Solution,” this heavy-duty board has a two-channel switch and three-step booster to satisfy every guitarist’s ego. It’s also equipped with covers that protect ports against dirt and beverage spills (splash-proof), a built-in tuner and power supply, and two USB charging docks for tablet or smartphone. Players can rock confidently, knowing that their board—and their 1970’s Distortion pedal—are safe and sound.

So whether a player is covering classic rock tunes or just wants to channel that vintage tone in a modern jam, the 1970’s Distortion pedal is their ticket back in time—all at the reasonable rate of €99.95 (approx. USD $105).

Rig Rundown: Wolf Alice's Joff Oddie

Joff Oddie shows PG his own Jag-Master creation and then plasters it with pedals bending (and distorting) space and time.

Listening to the tidal wave in “Giant Peach,” the riotous “Moaning Lisa Smile,” or the punked-up “Play the Greatest Hits,” it’s hard to imagine Wolf Alice as an acoustic duo. Then talk to Joff Oddie about his integral use of effects—“These pedals can do such crazy things; to not do crazy things with things that can do crazy things seems odd”—and the band’s origin story becomes even more improbable. But it’s true: Wolf Alice started with guitarist/singer Ellie Rowsell and guitarist Oddie playing acoustic-folk music during open-mic nights in North London pubs.
