Suhr Announces the Riot Mini

The company's classic high-gain stomp is now available in a mini-size enclosure.

Baton Rouge, LA (January 25, 2018) -- Today, pedalboard real estate comes at a premium especially when traveling. And let's face it, sometimes having to choose which pedals to leave off of your board can really limit your versatility.

Well not anymore. Introducing the Riot Mini. The Riot Mini has inherited all of the Classic Hi-Gain DNA of it’s larger sibling, only now it’s harnessed in a smaller more compact pedal board friendly design.

Small but mighty and heavily equipped with distortion, tone and level Controls, a two-Position voicing switch, true bypass, an on/off effect status indicator and housed in a road-worthy powder coated die-cast enclosure for years of reliable performance that the original Riot was built upon. Oh, and did we mention that it can can be powered via any -9Vdc power supply? It can.

Say goodbye to having to choose. Feel free to add one more…Your Pedal Board Just Got Bigger.

  • Classic Hi-Gain Riot Tone DNA

  • Distortion, Tone & Level Controls

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
