I know there are a million pedal makers out there, but I dig Aclam, a Spanish company that is run by music fans and professional musicians. Their new Cinnamon Drive pedal is set-up for Smart Track pedalboards, and I look forward to trying one out in person.

“Barcelona -

After a few years being an innovative pedalboard manufacturer, Aclam has started to expand its catalogue with a pedal line. This first unit named Cinnamon Drive is a dual stage overdrive pedal, inspired by the tones of the greatest 60’s and 70’s guitar players like Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and Jeff Beck. Created to have the tube saturation characteristics inside its DNA, it is highly dynamic and touch responsive, you can play it like your favorite vintage tube amp. It features a custom enclosure designed to fit Aclam Smart Track pedalboards and other major brands. Available worldwide from our website and authorized dealers this summer.

‘Our goal was to make the ultimate riff machine. With an amazing tone and offering new possibilities with an enclosure designed to take the most advantage of the Smart Track pedalboard, and making it easy to place onto all other boards.’

The Cinnamon Drive has a dual stage engine, featuring both soft and hard clipping circuits, starts from a clean preamp to a light overdrive, leading to a highly saturated distortion to cover a wide range of tones.

  1. One of the final steps in CNC machine setup is the testing of coolant or lubricant. An essential part of of} checking the coolant is figuring out the strain at which it is delivered. The incorrect strain can result in software injury, while the incorrect amount can injury the machine and equipment. Simply put, it is the size/thickness of the chip being eliminated per flute/cutting edge with every revolution of the software. So, going from a 2-flute bit to a 3-flute bit, the scale of the chip is lowered by 33% if the feed price just isn't adjusted accordingly. A smaller chip will enhance the warmth generated in the course of the cut as the chips cannot be extracted out of the cut quick enough and are re-cut into yet Cotton Boxers For Men smaller particles.
