The Trashy Blonde is your one-stop ticket to those classic British dirt tones that has helped shape and define rock-n-roll as we know it today. Sporting punchy, present and sizzling drive tones and a super-versatile Paracentric EQ, the Trashy Blonde will see you get the job done, whether you want to ride the highway to hell or stride the stairway to heaven! Plus, with on-the-fly tone sculpting or foot-controlled phaser and wah sounds via the optional Stone Deaf EP-1 expression pedal, you have the classiest classic-rock pedal ever made.
Extremely versatile, you can get those JTM45 subtle break-up tones all the way through to saturated JCM800 territory and then suddenly you’re feeling just like Slash stepped in with his heels. Plus, the design allows mixing clean and distorted signals with ease for a more vintage, well rounded and less saturated tone, to more classic rock tones reminiscent of AC/DC and Led Zeppelin. The in-depth EQ settings let you refine the sound to your exact preference, while the parametric filter and noise gate assists in suppressing unwanted feedback so that you’re always in control.
However, Trashy Blonde does have another ‘secret’ channel up her sleeve. By cranking the Balance (output) knob on the clean channel, into a ‘just about to break up’ amp will take you into boosted valve break up, step on the Trashy side and then boom! You’re into full-on distortion nirvana.
Add a Stone Deaf EP-1 active expression pedal to the expression input control and on top of the impressive regular tone shaping features, Trashy Blonde can also achieve wah, phaser and manual tonal shift sounds as well as the ability to control your drive tone on the fly with your foot.
