Visual Sound introduces new overdrive and boost pedals for 2009

Spring Hill, TN (April 9, 2009) -- This April, Visual Sound is releasing two new pedals, the Open Road Overdrive and the Truetone Clean Boost.

Visual Sound says Open Road is an overdrive pedal that delivers both grind and girth, offering clear low end and sparkling highs. The Open Road was designed to feature a very interactive tone circuit to help with high-end roll-off and gain structure. Visual Sound says when playing a single note line, the pedal sizzles, and when punching a power chord, it grinds.

The Truetone Clean Boost was designed to push the front end of your tube amp, and can be used as a simple volume boost for your other favorite pedals. Visual Sound says this pedal is great for a solo boost or to make a certain part stand out.

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
