Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you (not literally) the Mojohand FX Superlative. It’s meant to give you the sound, feel and response of the old Supro amps from days past. These little amps were small, lightweight, and often housed in cheap chipboard combo cabs but they sounded surprisingly cool. Tons of mojo for not a ton of cash.
If you want that sound, the Superlative is the best version out there, hands down.
Signal chain: Fender Custom Shop ’62 Relic, TC Electronic Shaker Mini (not on all the time), Mojohand FX Magistrate (not on all the time), Superlative, Strymon El Capistan, Analog Outfitters “The Road” amplifier.
Here’s the second of 3 video love letters I’ve made for the Two-Rock Sensor 35 head and 1×12 cabinet. This one is just meant to show some of the various styles one could use the Sensor for.
The guitars here are a Les Paul Standard, a Fender Richie Kotzen telecaster, a Fender American Special telecaster and a Tom Anderson Raven with silent P90 (PQ) pickups. All guitars are going straight into the front of the Sensor and I have a Strymon El Capistan in the loop for some light delay and reverb.
I have played a ton of gear over the years, some notable and some forgettable. Every now and then, a piece of gear comes into the fold that is a game-changer. The first time I demoed the Two Rock Sensor 35, it shook me up. I loved how sweetly transparent it is and the word […]
Hello, tone tasters. I have been around the nation 10 times and am just settling down for a little break from the road. But that doesn’t mean I haven’t been crazy busy! Here are a handful of videos that I’ve either thrown together or been hired to work on. Enjoy! And don’t mind the occasional […]
Hi there. This is full of very useful information and you sound very knowledgeable. I have quite specific aims in that I am in a U2 tribute. I am rebuilding my rig as I think I had my delays in the wrong place. In any case I’m not happy with them and they are crucial […]
The Startup Musician started doing a series of podcasts and I’m excited to share that I was the first one. If you’ve ever wondered what I sound like, well, here’s your chance. I use lots of air quotes while talking, so… there’s that. Anyway, the link to the podcast is here, and while you’re over […]
I think I have finally discovered my 3-pedal Desert Island Signal Chain, and all are MojoHandFx stuff. The Bluebonnet OD is a simple and dark OD, the Crosstown Fuzz is Brad’s modified Fuzz Face circuit, and for a solo boost/sweetener, it’s the Speakeasy. I prefer it with the tone and gain maxed out for extra […]
As tone aficionados, we try to make sure that we have the right guitars, amps and stompboxes. But we often overlook some of the less sexy ingredients in the signal chain that can make just as much of an improvement as the right guitar. It’s all in the Pick The first order of business is […]
Holy Cow. I am SO STINKING EXCITED about the possibilities of how I perform live. This is a quick and dirty overview, but I hope to get a much better video up next week that walk through the set-up (which is way easy). The signal chain is a Turbo Tuner > RAF Mirage Compressor > […]
