Tonehunter Switching Devices
Hand-built in Cologne, Germany, the Hot Tuna ($429 retail/street price N/A) is designed to deliver heavy grind tones that range from “plexi” to “Rectifier.” The unit features top-quality components and a rugged interior layout that includes a neat PC board circuit with chassis-mounted pots and footswitch, and hand-wired connections to the board. The Hot Tuna’s controls consist of Blow (volume), Voice (tone), and Burn (gain). There are also two mini-toggle switches labeled Chili and Dip. The true-bypass circuit features a mechanical footswitch, and there’s a 2.1mm adapter jack on the front side of the die-cast enclosure.
The Hot Tuna can unleash massive output—even at low gain settings—and jacking up the Burn and Blow controls produces a combination of distortion and output that will turn even the cleanest amp into a fierce grind machine. It has a thick, fuzzy tonality that metal players will appreciate, but the Voice control is key to getting what you want for your particular style. Settings of two o’clock and higher really bring on the fuzz rage, while turning it to ten o’clock or lower mellows the bite for a more tube-sounding presentation. The Chili switch toggles between a bold, presence-y response and a skinnier tone with less midrange, the latter of which could be perfect for sitting a part in a dense track. The Dipswitch noticeably enhances the low-end mass when activated, and is useful for getting maximum grunt from low-tuned guitars.

The Wishful Penny” by Jennifer Jo YoungDirected by Ben Becher With choreography by Emily Walton“See the wish. Feel its power. It’s right there for you each moment….every second…every hour.” ~ From “Jenny’s Penny”While visiting her Grandma, a rare coin collector, Jenny learns the history of one very special 1943 wheat-ear copper penny. As she listens, “Penny’s” journey unfolds and so does a unique coin wisdom that can easily apply to anyone. Penny learns that mistakes are good opportunities; there is value in being different; life will get better even when it seems hopeless; envisioning wishes can make them come true; and that there is a treasure inside everyone, even if no one sees it yet! A magical, musical adventure for friends and family to enjoy! Book Signing by Ms. Young at each performance!General admission tickets are $12 and are available online at www.RiverdaleY.org
