At first I thought it was an April’s fool joke as I received the press release from Crushsound on April 2nd, but apparently it isn’t.
The Farmer’s mill is a pedal that dirties your tone the way a broken cable, or broken components in your chain would. It is said that Dave Davies, guitarist for the Kinks, put a razor-blade through the speakers of his amp to achieve a grinding kind of distortion, so why not try to put that kind of tone in a pedal?
I know that sounds weird but here is a video from musicradar where you can hear the Farmer’s mill in action and I must say there might be something there (note that pricing information will be available in the coming weeks): click here for the video.
