Bootsy Collins Gets In Your Face With The Mu-FX Tru-Tron 3X
"Okay Funkateers, if you loved the original ‘Mutron’, then you are going to really love funkin' with the all new ‘Tru-Tron 3X’,” says Bootsy Collins. “Why is it so much like the OG-Mutron? Because the OG maker of the original is doing the Dirty work on the ‘Tru-Tron’.”
“My motto is:
Don't Fake the Funk or your Nose will Grow.
Better get the real deal & stay away from the Dill-Doe!
Tell Mike Beigel that Bootsy sent you.
Funk away baba!"
Grammy Award recipient (2002) and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee (1997), Bootsy gained prominence with the James Brown band in the late 1960’s when still in his teens. He went on to define funk bass grooves and sounds with George Clinton, Parliament Funkadelic, P-Funk and also fronted his own band, Bootsy's Rubber Band. An important part of his signature sound was the “synth-like” and “auto-wah” effects created with the Musitronics Corp. (1972) Mutron III. In addition to his continual recording, touring and producing, Bootsy created the Bootsy Collins Foundaton in 1999 to “…allow kids of all backgrounds to be able to come together and learn how to work together like we had to as a band.”
