Mojo Hand FX Iron Bell
What is the inspiration behind the Mojo Hand FX Iron Bell? Of course, Pink Floyd!
David Gilmour’s lead guitar tone throughout the years has consistently been as varied as it is sought after.
Numerous different fuzzes, overdrives, and boosters coupled with various amps and guitars have created some of the most gloriously rich and vibrant tones in the history of rock.
It’s clear that no sole effect can duplicate the “Gilmour sound”.
However, when it comes to fuzz, his go-to unit for the majority of his career has been the Muff.
There have been many incarnations of the Big Muff. This has made his tone has remained extremely difficult and elusive to pin down.
The Iron Bell isn’t based on any particular Muff circuit.
Instead, we’ve tweaked it to be a platform that is wide, yet focused.
Unlike the Colossus Fuzz which is based on the Sovtek/Civil War era Muff, the Iron Bell is voiced to be very open and rich, with an almost 3D-like harmonic quality.
Alongside the standard Gain and Volume controls, the Tone and Colour knobs allow you to sculpt the overall spectrum of the EQ.
That Iron Bell is tweakable enough that combining it with various set ups and effect combinations will allow an ample array of colors and shades.
The Iron Bell’s main focus isn’t designed as “David Gilmour in a box.”
It’s more of a tonal tool to get that epic, soaring, yet manageable quality of sound. This is the signature calling card of one of music’s most legendary players.
The Iron Bell can be much more and can serve as a tool to take your tone as far as your imagination will allow.
