SynapticGroove Announces the SlackJaw Fuzz Pedal

The SlackJaw features a three-way switch for compression, boost, and saturation.

Edmond, OK (February 18, 2014) -- The SlackJaw offers players of every genre an OD/Boost/Fuzz pedal without complication. Handling single coils, humbuckers and solid state or tube amps with equality, the Slackjaw is composed of the best voicing that overdrives, boosts and fuzz pedals have ever offered — in a singular design.

SynapticGroove’s sophomore effort packs an astounding array of tonal features and compliments their Snapperhead perfectly. In addition to being 100% handmade in the U.S.A., it comes with these defining elements:

  • A voice range from nearly clean boost to warm saturation to hairy fuzz without tone coloration or signal degradation
  • Level and Gain controls that make dialing in perfect tone painless
  • Three-way switch for compression, boost and saturation
  • Two-way switch for bass boost/reduce
  • A robust hand-sanded/hand-painted enclosure
  • True-bypass

The SlackJaw has already earned the embrace of Nick Perri, Richard Fortus and Jefferson Angell, who are jamming the pedal on their tours and taking it in the studio for those late night creative sessions!

The SlackJaw carries a street price of $239.00

We polled our readers to find the coolest guitar shops in the US, and here are the first half of the results, in no particular order.

The 20 Coolest Guitar Shops in the US, Vol. 1
"We asked PG readers what is the coolest guitar shop they've been to in the US. And while long-gone favorites like Manny's Music (New York) and Black Market Music (San Francisco) came up again and again, there were even more current shops topping readers' favorites list. We compiled the 20 most mentioned stores and quickly realized there were too many great photos we'd have to cut in order to get them all in one gallery. So here's the first installment in no particular order. If you're wondering where your favorite is, it may be coming next time, or we might not be aware of it, so feel free to leave your faves in the comments section."
