SFX-05 Lava Box™ is Latest Foot Effects Entry

Santa Barbara, California, Wednesday, March 14, 2007 — Seymour Duncan’s latest foot effects release is the SFX-05 Lava Box™. However, the Lava Box is not an ordinary Mosfet distortion/overdrive pedal. It actually reacts more like a great amp than a stompbox, with the depth and dynamics that give well-made amps so much character.

When you think about the tones that defined so many of the true guitar heroes throughout history, they all really speak. They cut through. They say something. A huge part of that is in the rich midrange frequencies that the amplifiers of the day naturally produced. And, because those amps were typically cranked up to full volume, they were also incredibly dynamic, responding to different picking attacks and even subtle changes to the guitar’s volume control. The Lava Box brings that magic back with its broad array of midrange timbres and its amazing sensitivity to picking intensity and volume changes.

One of coolest features is the six-position “Rumble” bass roll-off control. This rotary knob changes the sonic character of the Lava Box’s distortion for a huge range of tones, from bright and spanky to deep and warm. Whether you have the thinnest single-coil in the bridge of your guitar or the woolliest humbucker in the neck, there is a Rumble setting that’s perfect for it. Even at the highest gain settings, you can turn down your guitar’s volume control and the Lava Box will clean up beautifully.

Onstage, you can set the Lava Box for a loud lead tone and simply use your guitar’s volume control to get your clean and crunch tones—all without switching channels or kicking in other effects. In the studio, you can explore the huge array of tones that are available with the intuitive controls, creating special-effect thin tones or spooky dark sounds that are perfect for layering and overdubs.

Any distortion box can give you a sound. The Lava Box will give you a voice.
