About

Vicious Monkey Guitars & Pedals

The Vicious Monkey concept comes from Creator Anthony G. & his childhood love for Curious George mixed with modern times. "Basically, our lovable mascot Vic Monk, is a deranged Curious George," Anthony says.

After doing research on guitar pedals, Anthony noticed there weren't any pedals with fur, yes fur, on them. For the non-guitarist, pedals are sound effects for guitar.

A few pedals were built and Anthony had a group of his professional buddies try them out. As Anthony thought they were good, he thought he was being bias of course, but his friends all confirmed they looked cool and sounded really good so this began the project.

A few heavy weight guitar players took notice of the pedals and started endorsing them and using them such as Vinnie Zummo (Joe Jackson), John Tropea, Bobby Lee Rodgers, Warren Haynes (Allman Brothers) and more!

So long story short, people like the pedals and  Anthony has sold all the ones he has made but needs outside funding to do it the right way and get them out to the public and have the inventory to put in stores as well.

The concept of the guitars comes from Anthony's experience with being a dealer of multiple guitar companies and knowing the limited amount of beginner to intermediate guitars available at an affordable price. These guitars look like $2000 guitars for a fraction of the price.

This is the way that kids can get a guitar that looks like the rock stars and sounds like the rock stars but their parents can still afford to send them to college. Remember there is alot of psychology in learning a musical instrument and how you look and feel with it happens to be a huge part.

If you look like a rock star and feel like a rock star...then you are a rock star.

So this project is to help these future musicians get great quality instruments at an affordable price so they can shape their artistic talents in style.
