New Year...Vintage Vibe

What a tremendous year 2008 was for Retro-Sonic Inc. We've been absent from the Blog, but working hard behind the scenes to fill all of our gear orders for international artists and distributors alike.

We've also been keeping on top of all the great media coverage that we've received from Premier Guitar Magazine, Music Trades Magazine and more. This is just the beginning!

Look for Retro-Sonic effect pedals coming soon to an event near you. We've got lots of great things in store for 2009!

DISTORTION Pedal Debuts at NAAM June 20-22 @ BOOTH #1646

Retro-Sonic Inc.® announces the latest addition to our vintage-inspired boutique effect pedal line. The DISTORTION pedal is based on a LM308 op-amp design, and features true bypass with Distortion, Tone and Level controls. Together, these provide a wide range of tonal possibilities, from subtly distorted blues tones through to classic rock and metal.

The DISTORTION pedal will debut at NAMM in Nashville, June 20-22/08. Visit the Retro-Sonic team and demo our entire line of vintage-inspired effects at our BOOTH #1646.

As added flexibility, Retro-Sonic ® has incorporated two internal trim pots to allow adjustment to the frequency response of the gain structure. This gives DISTORTION users the option to tailor the overall response of the pedal to taste, by reducing or increasing the mix of high or low end content. More tonal flexibility can be explored through multiple clipping options via a 3 position mini toggle switch selects symmetrical-diode, asymmetrical-diode, or LED clipping.

The Retro-Sonic® DISTORTION is a professional quality effect pedal that recaptures the much sought-after “vintage vibe”. It is a truly versatile and musical pedal design that responds to touch, producing a big, natural, harmonically rich tone that works with any guitar-pedal-amp configuration.

The DISTORTION uses a standard negative tip 9v adaptor or battery. The highest quality components, handmade details and stringent testing, set the Retro-Sonic ® line above other boutique effects.

Product will ship in June, 2008.
