The built-like-a-tank pedal is based on the Juno-60* synthesizer that provided the iconic synth sound fueling countless ‘80s hits and defined the cult movie themes of a decade.

Risskov, Denmark (February 4, 2019) -- Modeled after the iconic chorus tones found in one of the world's most sought after vintage synthesizers, JUNE-60 gives you warm, analog modulation from its authentic bucket brigade delay circuit.

Salty caramel fudge tones

Pressing button I bathes your tones in a slow, warm whirl like sunbeams on an endless eighties summer evening.

Button II is a faster chorus full of liquid modulation, providing lush and dynamic movement for delicate Beatle-esque arpeggios or funky strum patterns.

I + II gives you dual, slightly offset, LFO's battling it out for total sonic supremacy, producing a sweet, uneven, almost leslie-ish vibe that makes you want to sit back and do laid back Rhodes-style comping all day.

Feeding JUNE-60 with a clean signal gives you sweet and chewy tones like spinning caramel fudge, while a spoonful of dirt yields a nice and salty response full of guts and grit - ripe for picking out some searing, psychedelic leads.

Rustic but refined
A mono/stereo switch lets you use a Y-cable to hook up JUNE-60 with two amps for an ultra-lush, widening chorus sound, that rolls out of your speakers like waves on an ocean of molasses.

Finishing it all off, the tasteful dark wooden panels, made from CITES-approved tonewood, provide the rustic but refined expression every pedal board needs.

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.
