Caroline The Blues

Is there anything better in the pedal world than a company that puts money and resources into a fake pedal for an April Fool’s pedal?

Enter the most hilarious “Blues” in pedal format, by Caroline!

OH WAIT, IT’S REAL?!? CAROLINE FOLKS, ARE YOU MAKING MONEY OUT OF APRIL’S FOOL??? You, devilish geniuses!

Here’s what the company says about this joke that’s not an actual joke:

It’s kind of like a somewhat gentler cousin to our Hawaiian Pizza transistor fuzz-drive. If the Pizza is 30% drive, 70% fuzz, then this is more like 80% drive, 20% fuzz.

Even though the pedal is real (there are about 54 units for sale, here), the joke still stands, mostly in the videos of it.

I think we should blame Ben for this one. Last fall, he said to me “I think for April Fool’s, we should film a release video for a fake pedal called ‘The Blues’ and it would be all about being ‘bluesy.’ Do you like your blooze ‘vintage’ or ‘modern vintage’? Just have lots of noodley shred and bluesy talk. Maybe we could film you in a fedora.

Well, we can only blame Ben so much for this, because of course, instead of just sticking with the joke of a fake pedal, we actually made the pedal, and it’s pretty damn cool. We’ll have 54 of these for sale, and when they are gone, they’re gone. So if you see that purchase button below, get yours while you still can.
