The world’s first was created in the form of a vinyl record that is also a guitar leg.
The contraption is the brainchild of Indianapolis-based rock band Brother O Brother, who have teamed up with Romanus Records and Audio Disruption Devices to release their new album ‘Skin Walker’ on a special vinyl edition for the record.
The limited edition will include the thickest vinyl records ever made, as part of a 2LP set where the vinyl doubles as a guitar stand.
The two vinyls in the set have different functions, one for delay and one for boost. The pedal controls are located in the center of the vinyl records, which can be played on turntables.
In an explanatory video, Romanus Records walks fans through the new creation, explaining in the description: “Overdrive, boost, and delay pedal. Each with their own unique touch of ADD Pedals. The boost has a toggle switch on along two different channels of boost while the delay is 4 wild settings for unique delay combos.
“One pedal covers the A-side of the LP and the other covers the B-side. They are limited to 35 units and will only be sold in the US for this particular release. We will be doing an international release of pedals at a later date, but we want to be sure.” for v1 on shipping.”
