FUZZY WHITTAKER Jason Ricci synth fuzz harmonica custom pedal
7 years ago when I moved to Seattle I met the world of blues and when I heard the entrance of a harmonica in a version of ¨Shake your hips¨ I fell in love with that instrument.
Jason Ricci was responsible for that sound, from that moment learning from Jason became an obsession. And when Jason personally asked me to make a fuzz for his harmonica it was one of the most epic moments of my life.
He asked me for a synth fuzz based on 80's keyboards and sent me the song "Talk to me, dance to me" by "Hot Hot Heat" as an example.
Working for months on the LM567 tone decoder chip, the magnificent FUZZY WHITTAKER synth fuzz for harmonica comes out of the LEFA laboratory.
With three different fuzz options: fuzz alone, fuzz plus synth, or just synth.
From fuzz gate sounds to impossible octaves and oscillations.
Armed with the tone control of one of my favorite fuzz ¨Green Russian Big Muff¨ and the ability to control oscillation by adding an expression pedal makes this pedal one of the masterpieces of our company.
It is my honor to introduce this pedal to Jason and make it the first LEFA pedal to always be in production on demand.
A pedal made for harmonica but with incredible possibilities for guitar, bass, keyboards or vocals.
Thank you Jason for trusting our pedals and introducing your FUZZY WHITTAKEr to the LEFA family.
