Well, Heck, he’s at it again. Mod-master general Benjamin J Heckendorn was commissioned by those at Guitar Hero to come up with a pedal and boy, did he deliver.
He constructed the gaming tool out of all manner of bits ‘n’ pieces including an old Atari Jaguar controller cable and it acts as the strummer and whammy bar for the god of rock game.
What this means is that you get a free hand with which to drink your beer or simply hold up in the air in classic index and little finger rock pose. He’s even provided a demo vid of him and mate playing the game with a few highlights of what it’s like being Ben Heck – quite fun as it turns out.
I love the way he’ll only put a socked foot inside his creation.
Take a look at the Heckster’s site for complete modding maddness. My favourite part has got to be his description of the pedal. “It kind of resembles a big metal shoe, kind of like if Robocop went to Holland.”
