We’re proud to welcome Swedish guitar master Pelle Holmberg to our family of artists! Pelle is rooted in the blues traditions, but he also loves to add a modern twist, adding flavours from the worlds of jazz and fusion.
Perhaps that’s why Pelle fell in love with our Red Fuzz 1 pedal that just seems like a perfect match, as he manages to utilise its full range from grungy to screaming. Whatever the setting, the two of them just sound great together. This is what Pelle told us after we sent him a prototype of the Red Fuzz 1:
“The Red Fuzz is so versatile and has a wide range! All the way from just a little crunch to the real deal full classic Fuzz distortion!”
Well, check out just how great he sounds with Red Fuzz 1 between his guitar and amp, using various guitars and pickup settings in this video:
