The FLB 1991 or The TEN Pedal

Funny Little Boxes, a pedal builder in the UK, has released a new pedal, the FLB 1991, designed specifically to capture the sound of Pearl Jam's album, Ten.

Watch as Andy shows you all the things the pedal can do.

The 1991 is a dirt pedal that will provide everything from sparkly clean boost to face-melting distortion and has been specifically designed to capture the spirit and prevalent sound of the awesome music released in 1991," says Funny Little Boxes. "The overarching aim was to capture the sound of the Ten album by Pearl Jam and the blue print for the sound is a mid forward drive pedal being pushed into a cranked, high gain amplifier.
