Jack White's Third Man Records release special guitar pedal

Jack White's Third Man Records have created a special guitar pedal, called The Bumble Buzz.

The Bumble Buzz effects pedal is only available at the Third Man store in Nashville and online at Thirdmanrecords.com. The pedal is a special Black Friday release and goes on sale at 10am (CT) on November 29, sold in a wooden box complete with custom bandana.

The pedal was made by Union Tube and Transistor and has been based on the pedal they made for Jack to use on his version of Little Willie John's 'I'm Shakin'', which featured on his 2012 solo debut Blunderbuss. A limited edition yellow version designed by Rob Jones is also available for Third Man Records' Platinum Vault members to purchase.

Meanwhile, Third Man Records recently teamed up with Nashville Rescue Mission to hold the 'Great Third Man Turkey Drive', where customers at the Third Man Records store could donate turkeys or other essential items such as non-perishable food and winter clothing for The Nashville Rescue Mission's Thanksgiving banquet, which provides turkeys for the city's underprivileged families.

White is currently working on new songs with his band The Dead Weather, a tweet from his Third Man Records label revealed in August. The band are holed up in the Third Man studio in Nashville working on the album.
