*LEGACY PRODUCT / NO LONGER IN PRODUCTION
In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Green Day's groundbreaking album Dookie, this pedal captures the dirty yet articulate sound Billie Joe Armstrong used on that record, combining the sounds of two modded amplifiers into a single stomp box for a harmonic range full of depth and dimension. This version features special edition artwork that contrasts the most explosive element of the Dookie album cover with a brushed aluminum casting for a look that's sleek yet rugged.
This pedal can be powered by a 9-volt battery, a Dunlop ECB003 9-volt adapter, or the DC Brick™, Iso-Brick™, and Mini Iso-Brick™ power supplies (not included).
The Long Story
Billie Joe Armstrong's guitar tone on Green Day's groundbreaking album Dookie sounded dirty and punchy with the perfect amount of articulation to express the musicality of his fast, melodic riffs. He got that sound by running his signal through two heavily modified amplifiers—one scooped with a ton of gain and the other with a well-defined midrange. When it came time to mix the record, the band blended the two signals together in different ratios to match the vibe of each track.
