Carl Martin has been reissuing its classic designs from his Vintage Series in a more compact format. The Purple Moon Fuzz’n’Vibe is an obvious reference to the sound of Jimi Hendrix.
Here are a few videos of the new, skinnier version.
Carl regularly spends some of his spare time listening to his old records from the 60’s and 70’s. More often than not, he will find a record or artist that will inspire him to create a new pedal. Sometimes it takes 2 or 3 records or artists to fully develop an idea! Now, think back to Jimi Hendrix and the Band of Gypsies, Robin Trower’s Bridge of Sighs, or almost anything by David Gilmour, and then open your creative mind to the Purple Moon! It has taken a couple years on the bench for Carl to be satisfied because it has been developed with very creative guitarists in mind. The Carl Martin Purple Moon is the only True Bypass, all analog, Vibe with Fuzz, and it is your ticket to recreating the same classic guitar sounds that inspired Carl. Like the rest of the pedals in the Vintage Series, the Purple Moon features a die-cast case with it’s own special colour, mini knobs for ease of use, high quality switching, bright visible LED’s (we recommend using a quality regulated power supply for maximum response).
