When Ashdown approached Jamiroquai's bass funk-master Stuart Zender to develop a series of new pedals, the result was inevitably going to be a glorious box of funky and filthy low-end. Say hello to the Ashdown Funk Face - a dedicated bass twin dynamic filter pedal perfect for those distinctive, choppy “Virtual Insanity” type bass grooves.
Made in England, the SZ Funk Face is a bold leap outside the box as far as effects pedal formats go. But, in line with Ashdown's renowned series of Bass amplifiers and Speaker Cabs, this rugged stompbox is the ultimate tool to take on the road or have as your studio's secret weapon.
For those that like it funky...
The Funk Face’s simple 3-knob and 2-switch layout makes things simple for the bass player when those moments strike.
Like classic envelope filters, the Funk Face’s ‘Sensitivity’ rotary control allows the player to shape the exact effects response, whilst the ‘Output’ knob allows you to decide just how much you it you want. Dependent on your playing style, attack and dynamics - by tweaking the Output and Sensitivity controls in unison - you can range from subtle filtering to a fully responsive “Funk Bass in your Face” Auto Wah.
The 12AX7 powered ‘Valve’ drive distortion switch can be selected by foot to naturally enrich the harmonics of the Funk Face pedal, whilst the Wah sound is also footswitchable. A very carefully considered switch on the right ride of the pedal allows the player to decide on whether the valve overdrive is added pre or post-wah, providing yet more tonal opportunities.
The Stuart Zender Funk Face also features a signature purple and red SZ Logo and a rugged, road-ready metal enclosure as the icing on the cake.
