Rockfabrik Effects Introduces the Mind Abuse

The pedal features three distortion modes: classic, vintage, and modern.

Istanbul, Turkey (June 18, 2018) -- Mind Abuse is a high-gain distortion pedal which has three distortion structures: classic, vintage, and modern. It is designed to create high-gain distortion tones with very low noise level by using a tube, solid state or modelling amp.

The modes behave like three different distortion pedals. Modern mode is used with drop tuning and 7-8 string guitars. Classic mode is for '90s rock and heavy metal. Vintage mode has more mids and is good to use low-gain settings for rock and startlingly fit death metal. Mind Abuse has a very transparent sound, rich harmonic content, and warm distortion tones thus you can hear every single detail even when you are playing fast at the high gain settings and home practice level.


  • Internal charge pump and regulator: Provides more warm harmonics and eliminate all ripple noise because of poor power supplies.
  • Mode switch (CVM): changes harmonic contents of distortion, thus it changes distortion structure and Mind Abuse behaves like three different distortion pedals. Also, the EQ responds different ways for the different modes
  • Unusual three band EQ: Standard EQs change tones but Mind Abuse has an EQ which can change structure of distortion. Treble adds fizz, bass adds just hammer, mid adds grittiness.
  • Deluxe Parts: %99,9 purity silver wires, Wima and Panasonic audio caps, high quality metal film resistors for the most transparent and natural sound.

Mind Abuse is available for $239 at Angel City Guitars LA and Steve Music Center NY

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
