MI Audio announced a new low/medium gain overdrive pedal, the 'Blue
Boy overdrive'. The Blue Boy has been 18 months in the making, and the final
design features 'Drive', 'Tone' and 'Volume' controls.
The Blue Boy also features 3 internal trim controls (brightness, voicing and
character) which provides a large amount of flexibility for tailoring the tone
of the pedal, from clean and fat, to fuzzy. The Blue Boy features the famous
JRC4558D IC which is mounted in an IC socket, so the user can experiment with
different ICs without having to de-solder the IC.
The compact and heavy-duty enclosure is made from die-cast aluminium, which
has been professionally powder-coated and silk-screened. The Blue Boy also
features a 3PDT heavy-duty footswitch for true bypass and a high brightness
yellow LED. Each pedal is hand-made in Australia.
The Blue Boy retails for US$129.95.
