String Theory EFX Announces Updated Tevatron Fuzz and KE/64 Overdrive

The new versions are still handwired one at a time using the exact same through-hole circuit components as the originals.

Wheaton, IL (April 19, 2019) -- Introducing the new updated versions of the Tevatron Fuzz and KE/64 Overdrive.

What’s new about the V2’s? String Theory EFX has been working hard over the last few months to make the KE/64 and Tevatron more pedalboard friendly, reduce production time and lower the cost, all while keeping the same great sound of each pedal intact. Both pedals now feature printed circuit boards and powder coated enclosures with UV printed graphics to drastically reduce the labor intensive practice of point-to-point wiring each circuit and acid etching each enclosure that the original effects featured. The Tevatron Fuzz and KE/64 Overdrive are still 100% handwired one at a time, using the exact same through-hole circuit components as the originals to retain the same sound and feel of the original versions of the pedals. The Tevatron Fuzz is also now available with the option of coming with either a hand selected NOS germanium transistor or a silicon transistor.

Both pedals from String Theory EFX are available now and can be purchased directly from our website . The KE/64 Overdrive is available for $165 and the Tevatron Fuzz starts at $180 equipped with the silicon transistor and $190 equipped with a NOS germanium transistor.

Diatonic sequences are powerful tools. Here’s how to use them wisely.



• Understand how to map out the neck in seven positions.
• Learn to combine legato and picking to create long phrases.
• Develop a smooth attack—even at high speeds.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
