If there's nothing adequate available
on the market, one has to act. I met a
young and flexible builder of custom pedals
and explained my problems and needs.
The first prototype was built - and satisfied
my needs perfectly.
Now everything was coherent and finally
I could have the experience to form the
sound immediately with my fingers.
69 isn't a gadget you can bend the sound
with. It gives the opportunity to use
an overdrive sound without lowering sound's
Of course the main application area isn't
Heavy Metal but rather BluesRock or Southern
Rock where it is of importance to transorm
the feeling the guitar player wants to
express in his sound.
you compare Duane 69 with other pedals
you will notice, that the intensity of
distortion isn't that exaggerated. Just
distortion isn't a solution! In fact the
point is to get the response and attack
tangible without volume orgies (even if
one sometimes such orgies must be....).
