Nels Cline Announces GOO at The Capitol Theatre with Wilco

By | Artists, GOO, GOO Videos, Videos | No Comments

Filmed in Port Chester, NY, during Wilco’s performances at The Capitol Theatre, Nels Cline announces and demonstrates GOO, his ICON Series Signature Distortion Pedal by ToneConcepts Inc.

GOO is a new ICON Series Signature Pedal developed in collaboration with guitar pioneer Nels Cline.

Learn More About GOO: https://www.toneconcepts.com/goo

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 recognized for his versatility and improvisational skills. A walking encyclopedia of guitar effects and tone, Nels is a true pedal geek who has owned and used hundreds of iconic stompboxes.

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

Nels’ first signature distortion pedal combines the best characteristics of his favorites 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.

GOO’s Design:

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.

GOO’s Features:

• 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 center-negative ground
• Limited Lifetime Warranty

GOO Limited Edition:

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