A dual-channel effect that goes after classic tones from the '70s.

Athens, Greece (December 13, 2016) -- We are extremely excited to announce the new “Experience” fuzz octave pedal!

The Experience is a unique fuzz octave pedal that was created to revive the sounds of the '70s with a modern attitude.

It features two stand alone channels (fuzz and octave) which can be used individually or together, offering a wide range of dirty goodness.

The octave channel produces a classic and easy to manipulate octave up effect, enhancing your tone with ringing octaves and a microphonic feedback at the end of every note. It features separate vol and tone controls for a wide range of colours.

The fuzz channel was designed to produce a wide range of tones. From mild and creamy overdrive and classic fuzzy tones, all the way to heavily distorted goodness with sub octaves, similar to trombone and analogue synth! Equipped with two vintage silicon transistors combined with fet clipping for richness and detail and four controls (gain, tone, volume and damage with which you can adjust the type of distortion).

The combination of the two channels is were the real fun begins! Infinite tonal possibilities await for you to create your signature sound!

It’s ok for a guitar to not sound like a guitar.

As much as we all love juicy, organic guitar tones, it can be just as inspiring to go the opposite way. Combining various modulation effects, envelope filters, oscillators, and more can result in sounds that owe more to Kraftwerk than Led Zeppelin.

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.
