It wasn’t too long ago that I showcased the latest bit of touring information for the band Steel Panther with the readership and if you missed that post somehow just click HERE to be brought up to date. Today, the band was making the headlines once again as they deliver their first ever guitar effects pedal called “The Pussy Melter”. Take a look down below for the full press release on the matter.
The Press Release:
California rock and party legends Steel Panther continue to add new milestones to their decades old career. Today, the band announced they are getting in to the gear world with the release of their first-ever distortion pedal for guitarists. From the genius mind of guitar icon Satchel in conjunction with It’s Electric, the band is releasing the Pussy Melter. The pedal, which is made in the USA, has 4 knobs and a toggle switch so guitarists of all genders can customize the “Dirty”, “Sizzle”, “Booty”, and “Load” parameters of the tone to their individual liking. The Pussy Melter effects pedal will be a limited run with pre-orders currently underway and the units will begin to ship to consumers on October 1st. Each pedal will come with a certificate of authenticity and musicians all over the world can order their own pedal at: https://lnk.to/pussymelter.
An official statement from the band discussing the pedal has been released via the band’s socials:
“We respect and love the freedom of speech afforded to all citizens in the US. We support the right for all people to express themselves no matter where they are in the world. We welcome all races, genders and sexual orientations at our shows – shows that celebrate everyone’s individuality through partying, and of course a love of heavy metal.
As clearly stated by Satchel when it was originally developed, the sound being created by the Pussy Melter tone pack was intended to bring pleasure to females who heard it. Steel Panther is happy to announce that we are now offering pleasurable eargasms to everyone. The Pussy Melter is now available for pre-order in our official store, https://lnk.to/pussymelter. This limited-edition pedal will only be available until October 1, at which point orders will begin shipping.” – Steel Panther.
Steel Panther are currently on a worldwide tour bringing heavy metal to the masses. The band just wrapped a couple of European festivals and are now gearing up for a tour of the US and Mexico. The upcoming tour will be making stops in Orlando, FL; Baltimore, MD; New York City to name a few before it wraps up in Charlotte, NC on October 28th. More dates will be announced in the future but all tickets and VIP packages for all upcoming performances can be purchased from: http://steelpantherrocks.com/tour/.
ABOUT STEEL PANTHER: For the uninitiated, Steel Panther was formed in 2000 and is comprised of Michael Starr (lead singer), Satchel (guitarist), Lexxi Foxx (bass) and Stix Zadinia (drums). Hailing from Los Angeles, the epicenter for rock n’ roll in all its debauchery and glamour, Steel Panther has established themselves as the world’s premier party band, melding hard rock virtuosity with parody and criminally good looks. Steel Panther is a global phenomenon with four full-length albums, touring across the world, platinum-level You Tube status and high-profile television appearances such as Jimmy Kimmel Live, Larry King Now, and FOX NFL Sunday.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Since I am a drummer, I will not be looking into this effects pedal at all (unless I snagged one and sent it right up to eBay to make a gazillion drachma from some unsuspecting noob). Clearly, the band is playing up their schtick right down the line and I have a weird feeling that there will be other devices of this kind to trade with us for cold hard cash. Though I am not sure if this will happen or not, I am hoping that this particular effects pedal is going to make an appearance at the 2nd Annual “Fear The Riff” Effects and Guitar Gear Expo that is happening in Brooklyn this Saturday. I’ll be exploring the event for good measure since you faraway folks couldn’t possibly be there with us and if we see it will definitely be posting photos for the website and Instagram. Stay tuned for that.
