Majik Box signs pact with Korn’s Munky for the signature Krush distortion pedal.
May 2, 2012 – Torrance, CA – Majik Box, the developer of the Paul Gilbert Fuzz Universe and Doug Aldrich Rocket Fuel pedals have signed a pact with Munky, guitarist of the iconic metal band Korn to market the Majik Box Krush distortion, a pedal that will produce Munky’s signature distortion tones. The Krush Distortion will begin shipping this week.
The idea came to Majik Box founders Rob Nishida and David Simpson, when they were in the sound development phase of the company’s first metal oriented distortion pedal. The two had decided early on that they did not want to develop another typical “metal” pedal already being marketed other pedal makers. “We wanted to make something for drop tuned and 7-string guitar players that was bigger and more organic sounding than what was already out there,” says Simpson.
