Alpha Distribution is proud to announce the return of the mighty Sea- moon Funk Machine: the effect pedal that launched countless funk & soul hits. Equally at home with guitar, bass and horns, the Sea- moon Funk Machine provides a chromatic wonder- land of envelope filter fun-with a few added surprises.
Iconic NY session musician and one of the most recorded bass players in history, Neil Jason, founded the company after numerous searches to replicate that legendary tone fell short.
“The original Funk Machine was a vital component of my tone for years. I needed something more compact and durable for the studio and the road.”...
Enter designer/builder and international pedal guru Ben Fulton, “After extended discussions with Neil, it was apparent this was not going to be a particularly easy task, but something that would absolutely be one of the most rewarding endeavors of my career. It had to be analog and it had to be exceptionally responsive.
And we did it!”
Michael Britt Profiles Introduces ‘It’s Just Bass’ Profile Pack by Steve Cook Benefiting Mama Lere Hearing School
NASHVILLE, TN — New from Michael Britt Profiles, the “It’s Just Bass” profile pack by Steve Cook is a great-sounding bass profile pack that benefits an even greater cause.
