This week, <em>Guitar World</em> recommends the MXR Il Torino Overdrive pedal.</p> <p>The Il Torino Overdrive, the MXR Custom Shop showroom’s latest addition, serves up smooth, organic grit with the controls you need to adapt its sound to your carefully constructed signal chain.</p> <p>Designed by guest Custom Shop engineer Carlo Sorasio, Italy’s premier boutique amp and pedal builder, the Il Torino Overdrive uses MOSFET technology to recreate the gain structure of classic tube preamps, allowing it to sing with sweet, touch responsive saturation and natural sounding compression. Next, Carlo added a three-band EQ section so you can finely shape the sound of the overdrive.</p> <p>Finally, Carlo added a BOOST/OD switch to toggle between Boost Mode—a cleaner sound with just the right amount of compression and sustain—and OD Mode—a more aggressive, cranked tube amp sound.</p> <p>This pedal uses a sophisticated bypass system in the form of a Class A Low Impedance Output Driver—essentially a form of buffered bypass—to keep your tone sounding warm and natural across long signal chains where signal loss normally occurs.</p> <p>It all comes in a sturdy MXR box with all the high-quality jacks and switches to make it last on the road. </p> <p><strong>For more about this pedal, visit <a hre="http://www.jimdunlop.com/product/il-torino-overdrive">jimdunlop.com.</a></strong></p> <p><iframe width="620" height="365" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/5wV-prRb6WU" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> http://www.guitarworld.com/guitar-world-recommends-mxr-il-torino-overdrive-pedal-video#comments Guitar World Recommends Jim Dunlop MXR Videos Effects News Gear Wed, 29 Apr 2015 09:45:37 +0000 Guitar World Staff 24405 at http://www.guitarworld.com Review: Dunlop CBM95 Cry Baby Mini Wah Pedal — Video http://www.guitarworld.com/review-dunlop-cbm95-cry-baby-mini-wah-pedal-video <!--paging_filter--><p><strong><em>GOLD AWARD WINNER</em></strong></p> <p>From airline seats to paychecks, it seems like everything is getting smaller these days…and not in a good way. </p> <p>Even the folks at Dunlop have shrunk their legendary Cry Baby Wah Wah to half its size! But thankfully the company has bucked the less-for-more trend with the Dunlop Cry Baby Mini, and created a pedal that packs all the wacka-wacka-wacka wallop of its standard-sized counterpart in a more travel-friendly, compact housing. </p> <p>The Mini Wah features a full sweep range, Fasel inductor, Hot Potz potentiometer, true bypass switching and for even more tonal versatility, three internally adjustable voicings (Low, Vintage and “Modern” GCB95). The Mini Wah is sturdy with heavy-duty jacks and switches and is powered by nine-volt battery or AC adapter. </p> <p>Amazingly, Dunlop has managed to make this bite-sized wah sound robust without any compromise in tone or quality. The Fasel inductor is a large part of the Mini Wah’s vocal-like sweep and snarl. The voicing switch is effective for selecting the best type of wah tone depending upon the amp you use. The only hurdle is getting the sole and ball end of your foot used to the small-scale treadle. But once you do, you’ll be rewarded with classic quacky wah tone and a surprisingly wide dynamic range.</p> <p><strong>Street price:</strong> $99.99<br /> <strong>Manufacturer:</strong> Jim Dunlop, <a href="http://www.jimdunlop.com/">jimdunlop.com</a></p> <p><iframe width="620" height="365" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/FRbNqolJ7wA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> http://www.guitarworld.com/review-dunlop-cbm95-cry-baby-mini-wah-pedal-video#comments Buzz Bin Jim Dunlop May 2015 Videos Effects News Gear Magazine Wed, 01 Apr 2015 10:43:34 +0000 Paul Riario 23832 at http://www.guitarworld.com Review: Jim Dunlop Band of Gypsys Fuzz Face Mini Pedal — Video http://www.guitarworld.com/review-jim-dunlop-band-gypsys-fuzz-face-mini-video <!--paging_filter--><p><strong><em>GOLD AWARD WINNER</em></strong></p> <p>Thanks to the inconsistent quality control of the original Fuzz Face pedals, Jimi Hendrix carried six different Fuzz Face pedals with him when he was on tour and chose the one that was behaving the best before that night’s gig. </p> <p>Eventually, he settled on an unusual (and possibly custom) red Fuzz Face pedal with white control knobs. He was seen using this unit onstage during his legendary Woodstock and Fillmore East/Band of Gypsys gigs. </p> <p>That pedal vanished long ago, but the mad sound scientists at Jim Dunlop have duplicated the exact same sizzling, aggressive character of Jimi’s red box. Even better, they’ve packed it in the ultra-compact Fuzz Face Mini package that is much more compatible with today’s pedal boards.</p> <p><strong>FEATURES</strong> The Band of Gypsys Fuzz Face Mini is a faithful reproduction of a vintage Fuzz Face, featuring only volume and fuzz controls and a mono input and output. However, in addition to its compact package it features modern upgrades like a nine-volt adapter jack, an easy-access battery compartment, an on/off status LED and true-bypass switching.</p> <p><strong>PERFORMANCE</strong> According to Dunlop, this pedal is not the typical Fuzz Face clone but rather a different circuit based on the Octavio, but without the octave-up effect. That explains why Jimi’s later Fuzz Face tone befuddled experts and pedal collectors all these years. Simply put, this pedal absolutely nails those fat and bold tones. Full out, it delivers crisp, speaker-ripping treble, but it cleans right up when you back down the guitar’s volume control. Whether you’re a Jimi or fuzz freak, this pedal delivers first-class fuzz.</p> <p><strong>CHEAT SHEET</strong><br /> <strong>LIST PRICE</strong> $171.41<br /> <strong>MANUFACTURER</strong> Dunlop Manufacturing, <a href="jimdunlop.com/">jimdunlop.com</a></p> <p><strong>THE BOTTOM LINE</strong> With the Band of Gypsys Fuzz Face Mini, Dunlop has finally nailed the elusive bold body and sizzling aggression of Jimi’s latter-day fuzz tone.</p> <p><iframe width="620" height="365" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/l9-41myjdxE" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-additional-content"><legend>Additional Content</legend><div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-related-artist"> <div class="field-label"><p><strong>Related Artist:</strong>&nbsp;<p></div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/jimi-hendrix">Jimi Hendrix</a> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> http://www.guitarworld.com/review-jim-dunlop-band-gypsys-fuzz-face-mini-video#comments Band of Gypsys Jim Dunlop Jimi Hendrix March 2015 Videos Effects News Gear Magazine Tue, 03 Feb 2015 15:58:58 +0000 Chris Gill, Video by Paul Riario 23407 at http://www.guitarworld.com Annie Shred Plays Medieval-Style Hammered Dulcimer Music on Guitar — Video http://www.guitarworld.com/annie-shred-plays-medieval-style-hammered-dulcimer-music-guitar-video <!--paging_filter--><p>Here's a brand-new video we spotted on <a href="https://www.facebook.com/dunlopmanufacturing">Jim Dunlop's Facebook page</a> just before the New Year festivities.</p> <p>It's a clip of guitarist Annie Grunwald—who's also known as <a href="https://www.facebook.com/AnnieShred?ref=br_tf">Annie Shred</a>—performing her own electric guitar arrangement of Dizzi Dulcimer's "Dizzi Jig."</p> <p>"I was in love with this beautiful [hammered dulcimer] piece, so I transcribed it onto my guitar," Annie says.

The final tally was Carbon Copy: 58.61 percent, Super Badass: 41.39.</p> <p>In all, 16 Jim Dunlop stompboxes went head to head (or toe to toe, if you prefer), and the competition got fierce at times. <em>Guitar World</em> and Jim Dunlop thank all you gear heads who voted during the competition! You can check out the final bracket below.</p> <p>Below, you'll find more information about the MXR Carbon Copy Delay, including an excerpt from <em>Guitar World's</em> <a href="http://www.guitarworld.com/mxr-carbon-copy-analog-delay">original pedal review from the July 2008 issue.</a> Enjoy! Don't delay! (We're really gonna miss that joke.)</p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.jimdunlop.com/product/m169-carbon-copy-analog-delay">Meet MXR's M169 Carbon Copy Analog Delay Pedal:</a></strong></p> <p>The innovation of the bucket-brigade delay circuit in 1969 made compact, stageworthy analog delay pedals a reality and allowed guitarists to retire their bulky and unreliable magnetic tape echo units. </p> <p>Although bucket brigades were eventually replaced by digital signal processors, suffice to say that—like skinny ties and Donnie and Marie Osmond—the analog delay has made a comeback. Nearly every music manufacturer is currently releasing its own take on the analog delay, and for good reason: most guitar players cherish the soft, lo-fi sound quality produced from these units.</p> <p>Fortunately, MXR, who have been making some of the most popular and innovative stomp boxes, has jumped on the bandwagon. The company’s Carbon Copy Analog Delay pedal is the brainchild of MXR senior engineer Bob Cedro, and its design is noteworthy for the company: it’s MXR’s first delay pedal in nearly 20 years. What’s more, it offers 600ms of analog delay time in a compact unit the size of MXR’s Phase 90 pedal. </p> <p>The Carbon Copy is simple to use: plug in, tweak the knobs and you’re rewarded with a glorious, organic delay tone. No doubt, the Carbon Copy summons a darker quality in its delay repeats, but hey, that’s why we like analog delays: they tame the brightness from most amps. </p> <p>Triggering the Mod switch will also add a lush background to your overall guitar sound without overwhelming it. Granted, 600ms is not a lot of delay by modern standards, but it’s more than most analog delays offer. If anything, the Carbon Copy excels at short bursts of delay, along with washed out and slap back sounds. If you need more delay than that, you’re just showing off. </p> <p><strong>For more information about the MXR Carbon Copy Delay pedal, visit <a href="http://www.jimdunlop.com/product/m169-carbon-copy-analog-delay">jimdunlop.com.</a> Also, be sure to check out these three demo/reviews, the first of which features the 2008 version of <em>Guitar World</em>'s Paul Riario, hipster hat and all!

Why is that important? Because the Fasel inductor was the key to the gorgeous tone, voice, and sweep of those first wahs. Plus, these inductors have been unavailable for decades. Now you can get that magic tone again. Go back in time with the Cry Baby Classic with Fasel Inside. Hear what you've been missing.</p> <p><strong>NOTE: For today's matchup, we have only one demo video. Both pedals are demoed in the same clip. We'll go back to our two-video format tomorrow.

It provides control over the most important wah parameters, making it easy for you to create your ultimate wah tone. Select the frequency center of the effect, then dial in the frequency range to be swept by the pedal. From narrow and sharp to broad and subtle, this amazing wah can deliver it. Once you've got your sound, make sure it gets heard with the adjustable, switchable boost that can create endless sustain on any note.</p> <p><iframe width="620" height="365" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/jmLRkgWwGRQ" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe><br /> <br /></p> <h1>Voting Closed!</h1> <p>The <strong>Dunlop 535Q Cry Baby Multi-Wah</strong> (55.12 percent) destroyed the <strong>Dunlop GCB95F Cry Baby Classic Wah Wah</strong> (44.88 percent) to advance to the next round! <a href="http://www.guitarworld.com/tags/jim-dunlop-effect-pedal-throwdown">To see the current matchup and all the matchups that have taken place so far, head HERE.</a> Thanks for voting!</p> <p style=" margin: 12px auto 6px auto; font-family: Helvetica,Arial,Sans-serif; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-size-adjust: none; font-stretch: normal; -x-system-font: none; display: block;"> <a title="View Got a Late Start Today Sheet1 on Scribd" href="https://www.scribd.com/doc/247151416/Got-a-Late-Start-Today-Sheet1" style="text-decoration: underline;" >Got a Late Start Today Sheet1</a></p> <p><iframe class="scribd_iframe_embed" src="https://www.scribd.com/embeds/247151416/content?start_page=1&amp;view_mode=scroll&amp;show_recommendations=true" data-auto-height="false" data-aspect-ratio="undefined" scrolling="no" id="doc_86870" width="100%" height="400" frameborder="0"></iframe></p> http://www.guitarworld.com/jim-dunlop-effect-pedal-throwdown-round-2-cry-baby-classic-wah-wah-vs-cry-baby-multi-wah#comments Jim Dunlop Jim Dunlop Effect Pedal Throwdown Poll Polls Videos Effects News Features Gear Thu, 20 Nov 2014 22:30:41 +0000 Damian Fanelli 22916 at http://www.guitarworld.com Jim Dunlop Effect Pedal Throwdown, Round 2: MXR Carbon Copy Analog Delay Vs.
