Working on a few new things here that I will detail out later. Thank you again to all who have helped and believed!
Rock & Roll!
Hi everyone – Happy to announce we are working with Loopers Paradise from Germany!
Check out the new video by EML Abusers Bugsy – Skating The Hell
We are sending a full set of pedals to Gear Man Dude and his Rock & Roll Snakeskins this week – so stay tuned.
Due to supply sourcing and popular demand we are going to the KN style knobs starting in the new year…Please inquire if you want metal ones for the immediate future – when the last ones are gone – they are gone!
Ok – So this pedal is a labor of love and I swore I’d build no more but lots of people keep asking for it and I have been lucky enough to get a handful of the special transistors used in the originals. So I procured a batch of YY’s from Michael at Pedalenclosure and for a short time you can get one. All the info is here No.83 Fuzz .
These pedals are extremely hard to etch and craft so it will be 4-6 weeks to get your pedal. Sometimes things move faster
Lots of great things going on here. We are stoked to now be working with ToneConcepts in the USA & Canada. They will be providing full distribution throughout North America. Checkout their web page to see al lthe other builders they represent including Crazy Tube Circuits and Jam Pedals. Great to be part of the team.
The ToneConcepts guys have all ready hooked us up with Nels Cline – Check out the video Nels was so kind to make on our Abusers page.
ToneConcepts will be presenting the whole EML line at the Winter NAMM Convention 2013!
Thank you everyone! We’ll have some more news soon – Cheers
First post in a few months and just want to tell everyone that EML has added a few new dealers around the world.
We are now in Italy exclusively at Wide Range Tones
Australia exclusively at Deluxe Guitars
Belgium exclusively at Lord Riffenstein
And just added another UK dealer Productive Audio Systems
A big thank you to all of them!
Also we have come across some of the most beautiful and innovative guitar straps we have ever seen and they are hand-made just right in the next village over from us. Check out Right On! Straps. Amazing quality combined with a slick adjusting system and pick holders at a fraction of the cost of comparable quality guitar and bass straps we have ever seen.
Thanks again to all who have supported us over the last months!
The past few weeks have brought about a great new line-up to El Musico Loco Abusers. We are overwhelmed to announce that Seattle legends Mudhoney have come on board.
G.A.S. Drummers reign from the south of Spain and are making a new record to be out soon. Check out this amazing band!
And last but not least are Bugsy. Check out their web page and download the new songs that will be out soon on their debut album
We are currently working on another surprise to crack EML into another aspect of the music world so stay tuned for details!
Besides sending hugs and loving my beautiful and gracious mother I also love this email I just received from Paul F. who chose the Honky Dong MFBO Booster in our recent contest giveaway
I dropped the Honky Dong onto my board on Thursday and played it for the entire rehearsal (sometimes new pedals only last a few songs before I put back whatever was there previously). Great tone! I really, really dig it. Can’t wait to explore it more. I was stacking it was a D*A*M Grease Box, as such: Gibson ’81 335 > D*A*M Grease Box > Honky Dong > Reverb Tank > Matchless HC-30. I will probably wind up using it in the studio next weekend and will happily report on the results if you’re curious. THANKS!!!!”
I am totally curious! Try it on both sides of a wah and report back.
What really is cool is if a guy that uses D*A*M pedals, Matchless amps and a 335 likes an EML pedal I am in honored company cause Dave Main builds the shit and guys with setups like Pauls don’t fuck around.
SEND SOME PICTURES!
I think there is probably more I could blab on about but need some coffee and a smoke and need to get lots of work done today. Also lots of behind the scenes stuff happening but all in good time.
Found this just now on the net – Happy Happy Joy Joy
El Músico Loco: BLISTERLILY Overdrive video
www.elmusicoloco.com The Blisterlily is a master-built overdrive based on the classic TS circuit. However it differs greatly with such features as its ‘Drive’ control, a tweaked tone stack, more gain and an almost indestructible case. Chris Bradford is a master builder, make no mistake and you’ll be hearing more about Chris and El Músico Loco on this channel.
