Osiamo introduces Dr J Effect Pedals

Models include the Green Crystal Overdrive, Shadow Echo, Aerolite Comp, Arsenal Distortion, Planes Walker Fuzz, Soloman Bass Overdrive and the Sparrow Driver and DI.

New York, NY (September 20, 2013) -- Osiamo is proud to introduce the Dr. J effects line of pedals to the US market. Rawn Randall, brand manager, states, “our goal, is to bring reasonable prices to the “Boutique” market. Dr. J pedals offer the famous “Boutique” sound, construction and vibe, at a price any musician can afford.”

The seven pedals in the Dr J line are designed to be musical tools, to help you expand your creativity. All Dr. J pedals feature extremely useful and intuitive controls; no more deciphering cryptic icons and turning knobs that seem to do nothing. Turn the knobs and, easily, find your sound.

Models range from the versatile Green Crystal Overdrive to the classic Shadow Echo and everything in between including the Aerolite Comp, Arsenal Distortion, Planes Walker Fuzz, Soloman Bass Overdrive and the Sparrow Driver and DI. All Dr J pedals feature true bypass switching, rock solid construction, a metal housing and a small footprint. MSRP for the pedals ranges between $125 and $145.

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
