Our close friend Chris Ameruoso called us up the other night with some exciting news. Chris is a professional photographer in Hollywood, CA. He is currently working on a book with Priscilla Presley. The book will include photos of celebrities wearing a pair of Elvis’s sun glasses. One of those celebrities is guitar legend Jose Feliciano.
Recently Jose joined Chris and his wife Daniela for a dinner party they were hosting at their home. Besides being a great photographer, Chris is also a fine guitarist. After they finished dinner Chris grabbed a couple of his guitars and he and Jose started to jam together. While they were playing Chris took out one of his Analog Alien guitar pedals, the Rumble Seat. Jose was so impressed with the sound of the Rumble Seat that he told Chris he had to get one for himself. When Chris heard that he said to Jose, “if you like it that much, you can have mine”. Chris took this photo of Jose just after he gave him the Rumble Seat. The photo really says it all. It’s both and honor and a great feeling to have a guitar legend like Jose Feliciano use our pedal. And it’s also great to have a friend like Chris.
I used to own a bunch of fuzz pedals until I played the Fuzzbubble 45! Now I only own a couple from Analog Alien. These guys know what a pedal should do and they understand that there is a performance aspect to the gear that it has to feel organic and let the personality of the guitar come through which is not an easy thing to achieve.
Fabulous! There’s a reason why guitarists try to emulate the sounds of the legends, and that’s particularly true of men like Hendrix and Townshend… the tones are memorable and captivating. The FuzzBubble-45 has done the best at re-creating these sounds and with incredible flexibility to help you dial into your own signature ‘Hendrix’ or ‘Townshend’ tone.
The Analog Alien Rumble Seat is one of the best sounding and versatile pedals I’ve ever played through. I’ve used the RumbleSeat this year on several tracks for the ABC hit Television show, “Nashville.” I’ve also used it in numerous live performances and I’m simply loving this pedal! This company has such a fantastic aesthetic and I just can’t wait to try the rest of their pedals.
