Seamoon Funk Machine

Where has the Funk gone?

That bygone era of booty shaking, rump bumpin' good time party music that was always right on time? The sound that always brought you up and never let you down?

Well, fear not!

The effect pedal that launched countless funk & soul hits - The Mighty Seamoon Funk Machine - has returned!!!!

Equally at home with guitar, bass and horns, the Seamoon Funk Machine provides a chromatic wonderland of envelope filter fun-with a few added surprises.

Iconic NY session musician and one of the most recorded bass players in history, Neil Jason, founded the company after numerous searches to replicate that legendary tone fell short. "The original Funk Machine was a vital component of my tone for years. I needed something more compact and durable for the studio and the road."

Enter designer and international pedal guru Ben Fulton, "After extended discussions with Neil, it was apparent the original was an exceptional pedal, and a revised version of it would have to not only capture the original pedals magic with complete accuracy, it was going to have to surpass it. Achieving this was going to be deeply challenging but incredibly rewarding. It had to be analog just like the original and it had to be exceptionally responsive. And we nailed it!"

Features Include:

• All Analog Design
• Blend Control
• Frequency Control
• Depth Control
• Onboard preamp w/toggle switch
• Volume
• Great Paint Job!!
• Made in America

Feel the groove and get the funk happening again!

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
