Dunlop has announced a limited edition line of pedals commemorating what would have been Jimi Hendrix's 70th birthday.
The Jimi Hendrix 70th Anniversary Tribute Series includes a Cry Baby, Fuzz Face, Univibe, and Octavio.
It’s made up of the four following effects: Fuzz Face, CryBaby, Octavio and Univibe. Designed by the MXR team, the Fuzz Face, Octavio and Univibe come in Phase 90-sized housings with modern upgrades such as true bypass switching, bright LEDs and 9-volt power jacks. The Jimi Hendrix Signature Cry Baby comes in a gloss black finish and, along with the other three pedals, is adorned with art inspired by John Van Hamersveld’s classic poster from Hendrix’s 1968 Shrine Auditorium gig.
JMH1 Fuzz Face
The Jimi Hendrix 70th Anniversary Tribute Series Fuzz Face’s circuit is designed to be faithful to the same Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face unit Hendrix employed in the late ’60s, but with modern appointments such as a status LED, true-bypass switching, a 9-volt power jack, and a smaller Phase 90-sized enclosure.
JH2 Cry Baby
The Jimi Hendrix 70th Anniversary Tribute Series Cry Baby is designed to sound like Hendrix’s Thomas Organ unit while also offering a 9-volt power jack, a limited edition gloss black finish and art fby John Van Hamersveld.
The Jimi Hendrix 70th Anniversary Tribute Series Univibe is designed to play the role of the Shin-ei unit that Hendrix used in late ’69/’70.
Sporting the same circuit found in Hendrix’s original “cheese wedge” Octavio, the Jimi Hendrix 70th Anniversary Tribute Series Octavio provides an “octave up” effect, and is designed as a modern rendering of the effect, featuring a status LED, true-bypass switching, a 9-volt power jack, and a smaller Phase 90-sized enclosure.
