Nels Cline Announces GOO at The Capitol Theatre with Wilco

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

Learn More About 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.
