Alex Skolnick shares The Mrs (DVK, that is)

You may remember my review of the DVK Technologies ‘The Mrs’ compressor/booster a while ago. You may also remember that I frigging loved it. Well one Mr Alex Skolnick has also been swayed by the charms of The Mrs – and you can totally win one.


Skolnick Shares The Mrs

Win a DVK Technologies THE MRS Compressor/Booster Pedal Signed by Alex Skolnick of Testament

August 2, 2011, Santa Barbara, CA: MV Pro Audio, North American distributors of DVK Technologies guitar effects pedals, has just launched a contest to win a free THE MRS dual-effect pedal signed by Alex Skolnick, renowned guitarist with the metal band Testament and The Alex Skolnick jazz trio.

THE MRS dual-effect pedal pairs a legendary compressor circuit with a versatile booster to give you a sonic palette ranging from loud and clean to outright filthy! Along with traditional controls, the compressor features a Norm/Bright switch for some extra ”zing!” and the booster features selectable Normal/Fat. Skolnick shares, “DVK Pedals are well built, look great, and open up many new frequencies for dialing in your tone. I like THE MRS and SilverTop in particular. Lately, I’ve been using THE MRS for recording crunchy tracks in my home studio.”

THE MRS is part of a series that also includes the GoldTop, SilverTop, and Hairball pedals. DVK pedals thoughtfully combine two essential pedals into one, coupling effects that guitarists often use in tandem. DVK effect combinations include fuzz and vibe (a la Hendrix at Woodstock), overdrive and vibe (an SRV or Page essential), and compression and clean boost (for that indispensible Nashville sound). The pedals feature rugged, compact enclosures topped with custom original graphics that range from sublime to warped.

Sign up at between August 1 and September 30, 2011 for a chance to win! No purchase necessary. This giveaway is offered to residents of North America only; void where prohibited. Only one entry per person; complete contest details and rules are posted at
