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!

Guitar store staff have better things to do than clean your instrument, so a well-loved but unsoiled 6-string like this is going to command a higher trade-in value than one that comes in covered in years of residue.

Believe it or not, you can boost the value of your instrument by making everyone's life a little easier … and cleaner!

There's an overwhelming amount of activity in the guitar market these days, and the sheer amount of demand has left some manufacturers struggling to keep up. But rather than wait around for stores to re-stock, more and more customers are shopping for used and vintage guitars. You might wonder, where do all those used guitars come from?

"'If I fall and somehow my career ends on that particular day, then so be it," Joe Bonamassa says of his new hobby, bicycling. "If it's over, it's over. You've got to enjoy your life."

For his stylistically diverse new album, the fiery guitar hero steps back from his gear obsession and focuses on a deep pool of influences and styles.

Twenty years ago, Joe Bonamassa was a struggling musician living in New York City. He survived on a diet of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and ramen noodles that he procured from the corner bodega at Columbus Avenue and 83rd Street. Like many dreamers waiting for their day in the sun, Joe also played "Win for Life" every week. It was, in his words, "literally my ticket out of this hideous business." While the lottery tickets never brought in the millions, Joe's smokin' guitar playing on a quartet of albums from 2002 to 2006—So, It's Like That, Blues Deluxe, Had to Cry Today, and You & Me—did get the win, transforming Joe into a guitar megastar.
