Dirty Boy Cannibal Boy:
Dirty Boy pedals are designed and built by Alex Saraceno, Blues Saraceno's father. Here is a word from Alex:
"Over the past few years, we have received countless requests from our hardcore fans for me to build them "Dirty Boy" amplifiers. Those amps were specifically designed for live performances. They were very costly and time consuming to build, since they operate on a different system that required seven separate transformers. I could not spend the time to build them and Blues' fans could not afford the production costs.
Now that Blues is concentrating on doing T.V., Film, and recording sessions, he has switched to using smaller studio type amps. WHOA, What about his killer tone?
Well, the solution to that is simple. He has been using several pedals (Stomp Boxes if you wish) that I designed for him to address just that. And good news... I can build enough to satisfy his hardcore fans that just need to have that tone, at a fraction of the price of what a "Dirty Boy" amp would cost.
What is cool is that you get to keep your current set up as well!
The Cannibal Boy pedal is a very accurate and very flexible sustain pedal. Unlike the square wave fuzz, this is based on sine wave clipping. You have a frequency selector and also a tone control. This pedal utilizes 3 germanium transistors for the softest clipping available. This is a pedal that will best suit the recording artist that needs to have a solo "sit" in a track. A true professional instrument.
I build them with Germanium transistors that are about 40 years old and have smoth clipping, not with silicon transistors that have a tendency to sound like razor blades.
Of course, I only have a limited quantity of those transistors so you may want to take this into consideration when ordering. This pedal has been hugely popular with L.A. based studio musicians as well as Emmy winning producers.
It is also great for live performances.
Dirty Boy pedals are being used by many high profile guitar players. I chose not to list their names since I did not seek their endorsement nor did I discount the pedals. And, I value their privacy. I am hoping you will take my word for it.
These are true Bypass and have an insert for a 9-volt wall wart and have an LED as well for instant recognition."
