Description

As far as versatile and ubiquitous effects go, an overdrive emulating a pushed tube amp is number one. El Mocambo will fatten up your tone with some extra girth around the waist, giving you that highly sought-after mid-range "oomph" that cuts through the mix when your band is pushing decibels. This particular gritty mid-range honk gives the guitar a certain vocal quality that is ideal for a singing blues solo but also works formidably in a hard rock setting as a lead boost on top of an already overdriven sound.

El Mocambo Overdrive features a distinct mid-range boost when engaged. This can help warm up a tone that's a bit too jangly to cut through a loud rhythm section and also gives a certain vocal quality to a lead guitar sound. With its symmetrical clipping overdrive circuit, the harmonic saturation is very fluid and musical sounding.

With plenty of gain and boost on tap, El Mocambo can be tailored to work in almost any setting. From just a bit of push to your preamp and a subtle warmth to your tone to a screaming overdrive with singing sustain and girth, El Mocambo gets you there. From blistering Texas blues, soulful pop ballads to classic rock riffs - El Mocambo fits right in.

Made from a sturdy metal housing, this all-analog overdrive will last for years and years without losing that warm tube saturation tone. Top mounted jacks are convenient and ingenious way to save pedal board space and keeps cable clutter to a minimum and true bypass keeps your signal nice and clean.

Store Information

THE HISTORY OF MANNYS

When you shop at Mannys you don’t just get the gear, you get the knowledge and expertise of 25 years of experience as one of Australia’s most influential independent music retailers.

In the beginning…

After managing the Allan’s city store for 10 years, an ambitious Manny Gauci-Seddon decided to open his own music store. He wanted his shop to uphold the values of true support and after-sales service, and to form genuine ongoing relationships with his customer base. The trends of the industry at that time were pointing to more of a disposable, corporate mentality and so in the early years he set out to make a name for himself as a serious independent alternative.

The first store was a funky shop in Smith Street, Collingwood in 1991. By 1998 Manny had outgrown this store and saw the need to focus more on the upcoming computer based recording revolution. He established an address in Johnson St Fitzroy as the arts were booming on the north side of the city. In the same year the opportunity came to acquire a business on Chapel St – the Revolver Music Gallery. With a two store operation Manny was now making the difference he set out to 7 years earlier. The Mannys brand was known for knowledge and service, with the staff greatly sought after for their experience. Unlike the other major players, the focus was not just on sales but also on the process of making music.

When the opportunity came to consolidate into one superstore, the North Fitzroy address seemed perfect for the move. Manny wanted to expand his customer base to include more of the musicians turning to the internet due to the lacklustre service of his competitors. He took the best from both stores and moved his operation to the hub of music and musicians just north of the city.

In November 2016 Mannys was sold to SoundBay Pty Ltd, the operator of Australia’s largest DJ and production retailer, Store DJ. While the essence of Mannys Music will always exist, our mission for Mannys Music moving forward is to ensure that we continue to build the ultimate experience for our customers online or in store. Our sales staff remain knowledgeable, professional musicians first and sales people second. Mannys Music gives you one hub to purchase all of your gear, and if we don’t have it, we’ll try our hardest to get it for you.

Mannys – The best advice you can give a musician.
