Skreddy Pedals Releases the Rubber Soul

A reinterpretation of a classic British combo.

Carson City, NV (April 17, 2019) -- Marc Ahlfs, the mad genius behind Skreddy Pedals, has just released his latest creation. This time he's going for a very well-behaved and useful interpretation of the classic British tube combo amp that launched the sounds of many, including the Beatles, U2, and REM, to name but a few. Designed to be a versatile workhorse in your pedalboard arsenal rather than a one-trick pony, the Rubber Soul promises to make itself indispensable in not only providing the specialized tones of the 60's pop scene and the 90's alternative crowd, but as a professional tone-sculpting tool for any guitarist looking to add a crispy cut to their sound with the depth of a proper tube-amp personality.

Price: $239, with 10% discount available for those wishing to apply 1/2 down and wait a month for the builder to make your pedal/

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time. But since I seem to exist on a separate timeline than most folks, it was all news to me.
