Bringing his vast experience of music, sound and production to Seamoon FX, Neil’s first mission was to recreate the legendary Funk Machine used on countless albums and soundtracks. “Basically, I needed ‘That Sound’ that only the Funk Machine had. Having gone through several attempts to recreate the magic box that was the Funk Machine but consistently coming up short, I was pretty much resolved to calling it a day and letting the Funk Machine be a great memory of another time.”
“That’s when Jack Thompson of Alpha Distribution put me in touch with Ben Fulton. Ben immediately ‘got’ what we were trying to do and came up with a spectacular prototype. After some back and forth we created what you see before you today.”
“Without question, this embodies all the best parts of the original Funk Machine in a smaller, more compact and more durable package. A great footprint for the pedalboard where space is at a premium, but the sound has to be great-every time.”
“I am happy to be co-owner of this company and proud to be associated with the people who put so much effort into this project. There will most definitely be more to come, and this is a great way to begin. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as we do!”
With 20+ years of pedal design experience Ben Fulton is among the elite builders at the forefront of the boutique pedal revolution.
Essentially, the perfect guy for a project of this magnitude.
“After extended discussions with Neil, it was apparent this was not going to be a particularly easy task, but something that would absolutely be one of the most rewarding endeavors of my career. It had to be analog and it had to be exceptionally responsive. And we did it!”
“I would echo Neil’s sentiments that Seamoon is the beginning of something big and something we are committed to seeing through to its fruition. The passion and dedication from the people who worked tirelessly to bring this to market is at the heart of our company and something we take a great deal of pride in.”
