I have started a new exciting project with Dave Catching (earthlings?, gnarltones, Mojave Lords, Eagles of Death Metal, Queens of the Stone Age, owner and resident of the famed Rancho de la Luna studio in Joshua Tree California).
We are currently creating our RoadRunner “Octave Fuzz Wah Flying Machina”!
What?…….Yes “Flying Machina”…….Does it fly?…..Yes it also flies!!!….other than it looks cool, why would we add wings?
The RoadRunner is a “old school” Fuzz Wah Octavia.
It has the options:
(Right front side)
Volume, Intensity and Fuzz.
(Left front side)
Octave on/off switch
Wah capacitor switch (3 options)
The Housing is done with red and blue “Flock” techniques what is an old method to give it a peach skin feel and look. It is also used on old vintage wah’s and fuzz wah’s back in the days. It aslo has a very cool new design, and the front plate and foot-rocker plate are made of high grade 3D rubber to prevent slipping.
We took the RoadRunner “Octave Fuzz Wah Flying Machina” for a test flight at the Pinkpop festival 2015 with the Eagles of Death Metal, where it turned out to be perfect!!!
(Dave’s EODM board….)
We now are working on details and techniques (and more fun and cool gadgets) to finalize and realize the RoadRunner “Octave Fuzz Wah Flying Machina”.
The RoadRunner “Octave Fuzz Wah Flying Machina” will be released in a very spectacular way end this year, around november. The RoadRunner will be made in a very limited run.
