New MXR Il Torino Overdrive

Carlo Sorasio is a legend in the boutique amp and pedal world of Italy. He’s also a frequent guest engineer at the MXR Custom Shop.

Pedalboard – Tommy Siegel – Jukebox the Ghost

About 3 years ago I was in Burlington, Vermont on a work trip. At lunch on my first full day there I pulled up the local events to see what was gong on. Like a lot of folks I try to see as much as possible when work sends me to new and ‘exciting’ places.
