Description

The signal-pollution from the decadent, noise-producing effect pedals is not welcome behind the iron curtain! Iron Curtain is a classic, simple no-nonsense noise gate with intuitive controls, high quality components and zero tolerance for any unwanted noise in your signal - only the purest tone is welcome in the noise-free republic!

Some old amplifiers or some venues just have a lot inherent noise. If the dynamics of your playing is important to you, going from a soft touch with barely audible notes and up to blasting the roof off, a good noise gate can help you keep that sonic image sharp and crisp. Iron Curtain is built on a classic all-analog circuit that will keep out any unwanted noise from your rig while letting your tone pass through completely unscathed.

Featuring just a Threshold knob and a Decay knob, using Iron Curtain is simpler than most overdrive pedals. This 2-knob operation makes it easy to dial in a silent, responsive guitar sound whether you're going for a grinding metal tone with all the gain or you're simply playing in an old building with ample stage lighting, using old single coils.

As you might expect, Iron Curtain is made out of iron. This sturdy little red box will hold up to an atomic war with its iron resolve intact. The top mounted jack input and output makes for compact pedalboard storage and easily fits between other pedals and true bypass keeps your signal clean when the pedal is off.

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.
