Montreal, Quebec (March 20, 2014) -- SolidGoldFX proudly announces the launch of their new Funkzilla Envelope Filter. Funkzilla blends an all-analog filter engine with tap tempo, variable waveforms, rhythmic patterns, direction and expression control.

With its fat all-analog signal path, powerful filter matrix, unique Tap Tempo control, and filter modulation, the Funkzilla is truly an instrument in and of itself. Standard controls for Frequency and Depth make it easy to quickly shape the character of the filter while the Attack knob lets you dial in the filter’s response to your instrument. In addition to the core filter controls, the Funkzilla also includes a Direction toggle giving you the ability to set the direction of the filter sweep as well as a custom Tap Tempo function, with multiplier, taking the filter control even further offering multiple waveform settings, expression pedal input, and dynamic rhythmic patterns. With its wide musical range the Funkzilla is at home on any pedalboard whether for guitar, bass or keys.

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.

Carbon-fiber flattops can sound amazing and I’ve been hooked by the sound and playability of Ovation and Adamas instruments many times.
