Judge Fredd is a French guitarist and gear reviewer who tested guitar gear for more than 20 years. Such an experience is certainly an asset to develop your own range of guitar gear. That’s what Fredd’s did with Judge Fredd Customworks brand… He teamed up with boutique builders and luthiers to build his ideal gear.
The Riff Shooter overdrive is the first product from Judge Fredd Customworks to be launched. To build that overdrive, Judge Fredd teamed up with French boutique builder JMB Experience.
The main reasons why I liked the Riff Shooter are the massive tone and the strong tonal personality of the pedal. Despite these strong characteristics, it should be able to suit your needs for many musical genres on condition that you are not searching for a light overdrive.
€190 which is a fairly decent price for a well built boutique pedal such as the Riff Shooter. As soon as possible, I think I’ll get me one of those…
In the first video below, I recorded a couple of sound that I liked with the guitar… The two other videos below are two impros recorded with the lapsteel because I liked how it sounded with the pseudo-P90s of my lapsteel.
