BSM RPA California stompbox recreates Ritchie Blackmore's hot 1974/75 tone 25-Aug-09
The new RPA California is designed to recreate Ritchie Blackmore's hot 1974/75 Deep Purple Mk3 sound. Here's what BSM have to say about it...
With the "BITE" control, you can blend between two completely different sounds: the raw and brutal early 1974 "California Jam" and the later razor-sharp "Live in London" tone ! The RPA California has enough headroom, to recreate Ritchie's original tone even with the old, low-gain amps like the Marshall "Major" or the VOX AC-30. Following Blackmore's philosophy "protect your ears and play it hard", the stompbox has no volume control, running full-throttle all the time. With the EQ control, you can tweak the stompbox to be a perfect mate for all kinds of pickups. Pricing and Availability:
