    Chase Bliss Audio Introduces Spectre Blue Knob Mod
    SpectreBlueKnobModAfter spending his formative years learning the trade at ZVEX Effects, Joel Korte started Chase Bliss Audio and created his first original pedal, the chorus/vibrato pedal aptly titled Warped Vinyl. Now five pedals deep into his line, Joel Korte has established a dedicated fanbase of freaks and geeks that crave something far beyond your run of the mill, 2-knob modulation pedal.

Forefathers like Scotty Moore, Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed invented the styles of Travis-picking and rockabilly and gave country music its signature style.
