Sogne, Norway (March 9, 2018) -- Adding to the company’s line of bass effects pedals, OnkartGromt has unleashed a new stompbox; the FunkyFellow.

Designed for the pro musicians, the FunkyFellow gives the user an intuitively insight into the typical envelope filter with the use of a OLED screen showing the frequency response live. With the option to dial in the exact frequency, Q and sensitivity, the box will fit for most basses out there.

It also features a unique modulation mode; adding a sine modulation on top of the envelope giving some tremolo like filter effects.

When an expression pedal is inserted the FunkyFellow can also act as an adjustable wha-wha.

The pedal offers the following features:

  • Four knobs to control Sensitivity, Resonance(Q), Frequency and Out
  • Switch for HighPass, BandPass or LowPass filter
  • Modulation mode adds sine modulation on top of envelope, with TAP function
  • 1.5mm steel cases offer unprecedented durability
  • Expression pedal input for filter frequency and modulation speed
  • Momentary soft true bypass on/off
  • 9-volt operation, 250mA and standard DC input

The FunkyFellow carry suggested retail price of $299.

Adding to the company’s line of bass effects pedals, OnkartGromt has unleashed a new stompbox; TurboTore Pedal equalizers are usually limited to a graphic solution where only the level is adjustable.

TurboTore takes this a bit further and let the user have a full 6 band parametric eq at their feet. Intuitively adjustment of the parameters and option to save 10 presets makes this a solid option to be in front of the rest of the pedal chain.

And best of all, the OLED screen shows the frequency response live while you adjust the parameters.

The pedal offers the following features:

  • OLED screen for visual indication of the frequency response
  • Adjustable parameters: Level(+/-12dB, Frequency, Q and output Level
  • 10 user defined presets
  • 2 inputs with adjustable levels (can be mixed)
  • VU meter level indication
  • 1.5mm steel cases offer unprecedented durability
  • Expression pedal input for level adjustment of the selected band
  • Momentary soft true bypass on/off
  • 9-volt operation, 250mA and standard DC input.

The TurboTore carry suggested retail price of $299.

Adding to the company’s line of bass effects pedals, OnkartGromt has unleashed a new stompbox; the Tremolando. Tremolo is not the most used effect for bass guitars.

But a creative player combined with expression pedals can make magic out of this box. With various modulation shapes it is possible to make a wide variety of styles.

Tap tempo is of course included.

The pedal offers the following features:

  • OLED screen for visual indication of the amplitude modulation curves
  • Adjustable parameters: Level, Frequency, Depth and Shape(Sine, sawtooth, inv sawtooth, triangle and square)
  • Tap Ratio adjustable 1:2, 1:3, 1:4, 2:1, 4:3 etc.
  • Stereo(ping-pong) or mono
  • Stereo input/output
  • 1.5mm steel cases offer unprecedented durability
  • Expression pedal input for Freq and Depth adjustment
  • Momentary soft true bypass on/off
  • 9-volt operation, 250mA and standard DC input.

The Tremolando carry suggested retail price of $299.

Johnny Marr’s latest LP spans influences from New Order to the Staple Singers while staying rooted in his clockwork timing and copious talents as arranger and melodicist.

When the great Ronnie Spector of the Ronettes passed away earlier this year, I thought a lot about Johnny Marr. Marr was moved deeply by the girl groups of the ’60s—their positivity, energy, and the convergence of ecstasy and melancholy in the music. He was even fired up by the audaciousness of their style: The impressive beehive hairdo worn by Spector’s bandmate Estelle Bennett famously inspired the jet-black pile Marr wore at the height of Smiths fame.
