The line includes the Chunky Brogan Distortion, Mobin Overdrive, Pep-Pep Delay, and the Hippy Joel Overdrive.

Tampa, FL (November 10, 2014) -- After several years of development, Sublime Guitar Co. (SGC) used a successful Kickstarter campaign to help fund their first series of production pedals: Chunky Brogan Distortion, Mobin Overdrive, Pep-Pep Delay, and the Hippy Joel Overdrive.

The Chunky Brogan is a true bypass, high gain stomp box with a large dynamic range and colorful harmonic overtones. The 2-way switch offers a normal mode when switched to the left. When switched to the right, it filters some of the highs and gives you a very creamy distortion. You can back down the drive level and create a very nice dynamic overdrive as well.

The Mobin is a true bypass overdrive with many different tone options. The 3 position diode selector gives you a variety of overdrive tones. In the down position, the pedal has more British style tone. In the up position, the Symetrical Overdrive mode has a tube-like organic sounding overdrive. The middle position is a great mode for a clean boost style overdrive and has more than enough gain to really drive your amp. All of these options make this a dynamic overdrive that will work in any musical situation.

The Pep-Pep is a true bypass, analog voiced delay. We have tuned the delay to create a very ambient soundscape. The Pep-Pep is well suited for a secondary delay that helps add space to your guitar mix. It can also be used as a primary solo-type delay that helps give your lead and coloring parts more dimension.

The Hippy Joel is a true bypass, natural and transparent sounding overdrive. This pedal really shines as a boost style overdrive to enhance your amp’s tone, or in use with other pedals. The great mid range of this pedal helps your tone cut through the mix. When the drive is turned up, a throaty overdrive sound is achieved as well.

All four pedals are available now at for $99.99 each.

On Black Midi's Cavalcade, Geordie Greep’s fretwork is an example of the 6-string as a capable component as much as a solo instrument, never completely stealing the show.

Popular music and mainstream tastes may be more fractured than ever, but the guitar continues to thrive.

As we soft launch into the new year, I’m not waiting for the requisite guitar obituary in the news. It’s not going to happen again anytime soon. Why? Because as far as the mainstream media is concerned, our beloved instrument is not only dead, it's irrelevant to the point of not even being an afterthought. When the New York Times published their most recent albums of the year list, there was barely a guitar-based recording to be found. Still, there is not only hope, but also cause for jubilation.

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.
