Gone Fishing Effects Booooom:Blast

Gone Fishing Effects Announces Version 2.0 of Simon Neil Booooom/Blast Leave a comment

Gone Fishing Effects has again teamed up with Biffy Clyro’s Simon Neil for a second run of the Booooom/Blast signature drive stompbox.

Slated to go live at the end of this month, Version 2.0 of the Booooom/Blast comes with similar specs as its predecessor, with the only difference being aesthetic. And like the first, each Booooom/Blast Version 2.0 is hand-painted and signed by Neil.

In a statement, the Biffy Clyro frontman referred to Booooom/Blast as “the pedal that I’ve been looking for most of my life,” adding, “We’ve taken our time to ensure that it’s everything it can be. It’s been a real labour of love.”

Per Booooom/Blast co-designer Richard “Churd” Pratt, they wanted to “capture Simon’s sound in a box, so anyone can play guitar and sound like him.” He continued to say: “It was much easier said than done! It’s one of the most transparent loud overdrive pedals on the market. With so many distortion pedals you get loads of fuzz and saturation, but with this the guitar still breathes. You still hear all the notes but with the extra weight and overdrive.”

Limited to only 200 pedals, Version 2.0 of the Simon Neil Booooom/Blast will be available for preorder starting November 30, with shipping slated for January 28, 2022.
