Ghetto Stomp

Named after a dance from days gone by, often seen beneath the street lights of rhythm and blues clubs, the Ghetto Stomp is a proud tribute to those that loved music, and couldn't afford to pay to see bands play, but wanted to dance the night away.  

Imagine a pedal that actually sounds and feels like natural amp breakup! If it's Tweed, or old Valco tones you seek, look no further. This pedal produces vintage tones, and is very responsive to the guitar's volume knob. This pedal goes in the range of fuzz and distortion, while retaining the feel of natural tube amp breakup and sag. Gain, Tone, and Level knobs allow the player a great amount of flexibility. This pedal is wonderful in meshing with one's current overdrive sound and can even be used as a rhythm distortion. The Ghetto Stomp stacks beautifully with other drives, as well. Fat and lovely, this is the player's pedal.

***CUSTOM YELLOW BC107B LIMITED EDITION--built using NOS BC107B transistors that have more oomph and gain than current production ones, in limited GREER YELLOW enclosures, these Ghetto Stomps have a bit more rasp, gain, and oomph in them.  These are currently in limited supply, while we search for more of the NOS transistors.
