Ashdown Introduces Stuart Zender Funk Face Twin Dynamic Filter Pedal

Ashdown Engineering Stuart Zender Funk Face Twin Dynamic Filter PedalAshdown Engineering has teamed up with bassist Stuart Zender to introduce the SZ Funk Face Twin Dynamic Filter Pedal. The pedal is designed for simplicity in getting a funky sound that Zender, who was the original bassist for Jamiroquai, is known for.

Its filter section has a Sensitivity knob to control the effect’s response, while an Output knob controls the overall level. The Funk Face also has a 12AX7 tube for distortion with its own Drive knob. Both the filter and drive sections can be engaged with their own footswitch, and a switch on the right side of the pedal allows for routing the tube overdrive pre- or post-wah.

The Ashdown SZ Funk Face Twin Dynamic Filter Pedal will be available soon with a street price around $299.
