Synaptic Groove Releases Snapperhead Distortion

Oklahoma-based Synaptic Groove unveils the Snapperhead, an analog overdrive/distortion pedal.

Edmond, OK (August 14, 2013) -- Offering pedal geeks and tone freaks a truly unique overdrive/distortion, the Snapperhead is an analog pedal for guitarists that have “tried everything else”.

The Snapperhead pedal offers an unprecedented array of features in an affordable package for the studio, session, pro and weekend warrior players. In addition to being 100% handmade in the U.S.A., it comes with these defining elements:

  • A voice range from overdrive to distortion without tone coloration.
  • Simple controls that make dialing in your tone heavenly.
  • Unique tri-color LED that looks groovy and lets you know when your battery is dying.
  • The absolute best components available on the market today.

The new pedals have already earned the embrace of professional players. Nick Perri, Richard Fortus and Peter Stroud are jamming the Snapperhead pedal on their tours and taking it in the studio for those late night sessions.

The Snapperhead carries an MSRP of $155.00

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for blues music, but the blues scale can yield beguiling musical results that bear little resemblance to the traditional blues—particularly if one looks at (and listens to) the scale from a different point of view.
