Zinky True Grit

Who is Bruce Zinky? Just an amp engineer who has worked with Fender Amps before starting his own boutique amp line in the 90's. He also built a pedal based off the John Wayne mojo from a movie of the same same. What I like about this undiscovered gem is the fact that it is such a bargain for what you get. Much like the Fulltone Fulldrive it has an overdrive with a boost switch. The Gain control allows you to inject some distortion into the device with individual bass and treble controls. The Grit also adds some hair to your mid-range especially when the boost is forcing your amp into beautiful clipping territory. Why this peal has been under-the-radar is beyond me. It is still a stellar value for the money. For more info visit http://www.zinky.com/ or see this great review http://www.guitarplayer.com/story.aspx?content_id=2358
