Skreddy Pedals Releases the Super 100

Skreddy Pedals Releases the Super 100

Designed to emulate the sound of a cranked British 100-watt amp.

Carson City, NV (September 11, 2020) -- The third and definitely most fire-breathing in their series of amp emulators, Skreddy Pedals has released the new Super 100, designed to emulate the classic and much sought-after sound of the cranked British 100-Watt series of amps, typically played through a massive stack of speakers in order to fill an entire arena with sound. Marc Ahlfs, the founder and designer, says he worked intently on this circuit so that it would both nail Page's live sound with a Les Paul and Hendrix's with a Stratocaster. Not the slick or buzz-saw style distortion of a typical "Marshall" patterned distortion pedal, the Skreddy Super 100 retains a chimey articulation and dynamic, transparent feel even at max drive settings and responds intuitively to guitar volume and picking technique.

The SAG knob controls the optical compressor/limiter circuit to tighten up the output at clockwise or permit full, punchy, wall-shaking dynamics at counter-clockwise. You might find you're "in the pocket" with the SAG control at about noon.

Can be powered by a standard 9v adapter or a 9v battery. True bypass switching. Robust transparent gold powder-coated finish over lightly brushed cast-aluminum enclosure. Marshall-amp style knobs.

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.

The session ace’s signature model offers a wide range of tones at the flip of a switch … or five.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. Not long ago, I came home late from a band rehearsal, still overly excited about the new songs we played. I got myself a coffee (I know, it's a crazy procedure to calm down) and turned on the TV. I ended up with an old Bonanza episode from the ’60s, the mother of all Western TV series. Hearing the theme after a long time instantly reminded me of the great Al Caiola, who is the prolific session guitarist who plays on the song. With him in mind, I looked up the ’60s Epiphone “Al Caiola” model and decided I want to talk about the Epiphone/Gibson Tone Expressor system that was used in this guitar.

Embracing the idea of an acoustic flattop made with anything other than wood can, understandably, be tricky stuff. There’s a lot of precedent for excellent-sounding acoustics built with alternative materials, though. Carbon-fiber flattops can sound amazing and I’ve been hooked by the sound and playability of Ovation and Adamas instruments many times.
