The new ‘Fillmore Thunder’ is two fully functional guitar effects pedals in one unit. This limited-edition pedal effectively reproduces the legendary sound produced by Jimi Hendrix in the latter half of his career. It is a revolutionary take on an old sound.
MORE INFO: At the core of this ring-modulator and fuzz pedal is a 4 knob classic silicon Fuzz Face circuit (with the addition of a gain control and transistor bias) complete with a set of classic BC-108 vintage transistors.
The Fillmore Thunder Pedal is a two-stage effect. Most notable is the octave portion of the circuit, said Nelson. “This circuit was designed NOT as an Octavia clone -- but rather as a practical and articulate 60’s sounding octave-up pedal. Our emphasis was development of the warm fidelity and prominent “steel drum pinging” octave sound found on such songs as “Who Knows?” , an opening number on Hendrix’s “Live at the Fillmore East” album.
We took on the challenge of designing this pedal to address common complaints about its predecessors – such as the Tycobrahe and subsequent clones. That these predecessors are often plagued by a lot of harsh tinny distortion. Another limitation is that the ‘octave sweet spots’ can only be played in the middle of the guitar neck. After nearly 40 years, the genuine Hendrix sound on his old records has never been fully duplicated.
The Fillmore Thunder produces an extraordinary octave-up sound that is liquid, natural and smooth. It’s pure ear candy! In addition, you get a whole gamut of octave sounds all the way up and down the neck. The Fillmore Thunder is designed to consistently function with existing equipment and works well with single coil and Humbucker pick-ups and toggle switch setting's.
Get psychedelic with the Elite Tone Fillmore Thunder Fuzz! The Fillmore Thunder features separate fuzz and octave effects circuits. Lay down some fuzzy rhythms and then engage the Elite Tone Fillmore Thunder's octave circuit for flutey, piercing leads. The Elite Tone Fillmore Thunder lets you achieve your favorite fuzz tones of yesteryear.
