WATCH: Nels Cline's The Blob-inspired signature GOO pedal

A special GOO Limited Edition of only 250 pedals will be produced in 2016.

“I wanted the most expressive, touch sensitive, and responsive distortion pedal I’ve ever experienced.”

ToneConcepts has launched GOO, a new ICON Series Signature Pedal developed in collaboration with guitar pioneer Nels Cline.

GOO’s unique artistic design was inspired by the 1958 movie “The Blob”, and its graphics represent the movie's jelly monster while the pedal's three distinct glow-in-the-dark knobs capture its sci-fi vibe.

GOO ships in custom packaging inspired by Ed "Big Daddy" Roth and the Revell models of his monsters, originally issued in the 1960s.

Named by Rolling Stone as one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time, and best known as Wilco's guitar hero, Nels Cline is a true virtuoso recognised for his versatility and improvisational skills.

A walking encyclopaedia of guitar effects and tone, Nels is a true pedal geek who has owned and used hundreds of iconic stompboxes.

Nels’ first signature distortion pedal combines the best characteristics of his favourites along with a simple gig-friendly design. Its tube-like response gives players the freedom and flexibility to play everything from rock to alternative to jazz fusion to blues.

“I wanted the most expressive, touch sensitive, and responsive distortion pedal I’ve ever experienced,” said Nels.

“GOO will rock your socks off, and then its singing sustain will envelop you in sonic viscosity and consume you in creamy, dreamy distorted bliss.”

GOO’s features include:

– Handmade and built to order in Toronto, Canada
– Simple gig-friendly design
– Large glow-in-the-dark knobs
– Custom designed GOO packaging
– Controls: Volume, Shininess (Tone), Viscosity (Gain)
– Power specifications: 9V centre-negative ground
– Limited lifetime warranty

A special GOO Limited Edition of only 250 pedals will be produced in 2016 and are available for pre-order now.

The GOO Limited Edition includes an individually numbered and built to order GOO pedal, a certificate signed by Nels Cline, GOO sticker pack and custom GOO packaging.
