Way Huge and Joe Bonamassa Unveil the Penny Saver Royale Modulation & Overdrive

One side features the Overrated Special Overdrive and the other side features the Blue Hippo Chorus’ primary mode—with a custom delay time specially suited to Joe’s taste.

Benecia, CA (March 2, 2021) -- The Way Huge Penny Saver Royale Modulation & Overdrive unites Joe Bonamassa’s beloved Way Huge pedals in a single housing. One side features all the punch, grit, and tweakability of the Overrated Special Overdrive. The other side features the lush tones of the Blue Hippo Chorus’ primary mode—with a custom delay time specially suited to Joe’s taste.

Run each effect independently, or luxuriate in the thick, soupy textures created when overdrive charges into the viscous embrace of modulation. This pedal is ready to infuse Joe’s hypnotic licks—and yours—with an electrifying surge of gain and sustain and the liquefied intensity of a rotating speaker.

“Combining the Overrated Special Overdrive and the Blue Hippo Chorus into one unit, with a single power source, has changed the relationship between chorus and overdrive,” Joe says. “They tend to melt more into the tone giving it a very organic yet unique sound that was not there with the two singular units by themselves. Plus you save a penny or two with the purchase. Everyone wins!”

The Way Huge Penny Saver Royale Modulation & Overdrive is available domestically and internationally from jbonamassa.com and at select local retailers in the UK, Australia, and Japan.

Street: $299.99

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
