“If it ain’t broke … buy a BROKEN AMP SIMULATOR”
Ever since the tune “Rocket 88” hit the airwaves, guitar players have looked for ways to capitalize on their malfunctioning equipment. Overdrive, distortion, fuzz, sub octave – all of these sounds came from equipment that was behaving, well… poorly! Nowadays, the sound of distortion is as common as a cold, but we don’t necessarily want our expensive and otherwise reliable equipment to catch it.
That’s where Captain Jake’s Broken Amp Simulator comes in – a bona fide speaker rippin’, tube slippin contortioner of distortion. The B.A.S. features five knobs to tweak the sounds of old-school boosts, 60’s fuzzes, high gain distortion and noisy sub-octave bit crushing sounds.
