Nexi Industries Teams with Skunk Anansie’s Ace for New Effects Pedals

The Octavius and Skunkdrive are analog pedals that feature the company's proprietary hybrid power design.

Amsterdam (January 15, 2019) -- Nexi Industries and multi-platinum Skunk Anansie guitarist Ace are collaborating to create effects pedals designed to Ace’s specifications combined with Nexi’s award-winning plug-and-play design.

As a well-known pedal lover and collector, Ace approached the Nexi Industries team with a specific goal to develop two analog guitar pedals with the famous British rock sound in mind. Already considered one of the most influential guitarist of the UK “Brit-rock” scene, the collaboration resulted in achieving all benchmarks Ace targeted. Ultimately, two pedals came of the results: the Skunkdrive and the Octavius.

The Skunkdrive is a classic analog, high-gain, rock pedal delivering a mix of the seventies' and eighties' driven amp sound, but with an extra “byte.”

The Octavius is an analog octaver pedal providing a full octave up or a full octave down and features a dry/mix setting allowing players to create their own tones.

Both pedals are a hybrid design meaning they can be powered by either 9V battery, an external power supply, or Nexi’s own pedal board.

The proprietary Nexi pedal board features a click-and-play design allowing pedals to be securely in place without the need of external power supplies or patch cables.

Each pedal will be priced at $99.95

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.
