Pro Tone Maker Plugs The Becker Signature

Protone Jason Becker Signature DistortionWe’ve been doing a roaring trade here at GAPco thanks to our current deal of 15% off Pro Tone Pedals.

Pro Tone specialize in twisting up traditional rock and metal distortion to produce sounds like you’ve never heard before, accompanied by some truly inspired artwork.

But we were especially chuffed to hear that Pro Tone founder Dennis Mollan’s personal rec is the Jason Becker Signature Distortion. He recently told Guitar Jar:

“My personal favourite is the Becker signature. I worked hard on the design and tweaking it just right, and to have one of my hero’s tell me he loves it… wow. Seriously, when I went to Jason’s house to demo the prototype for him, it was one of the highlights of my life in or outside of the industry. To play Jason’s historic guitars… dig through his boxes of gear- just a priceless moment in my life that I’ll never forget.”

So there you go, a personal endorsement not only from living legend Jason Becker, but Mr. Pro Tone himself.

Grab yourself a bargain while stocks lasts!

Red Witch Empress Chorus from New Zealand Company

Check out their Site to hear what it sounds like.

Red Witch Empress Chorus Pedal“The Redwitch Empress is a three-dimensional modulation machine, and when you couple its vast array of sounds with absolutely wicked construction – and some cool graphics – you’ve got one of the drippiest sounding chorus/vibrato pedals ever made.”   (Guitar Player, May 2008, Empress Chorus)

Not just any ordinary analog chorus/Vibe pedal………
The Empress offers unparalleled chorus options; an infinite number of analog chorus/vibe devices in one box…

Her most enticing feature is the unique voicing control;
this dial allows you to access virtually any chorus sound you could desire! It changes the delay time – it’s on a pot so you’ve got an infinite number of chorus pedals in one box – from super spanky sparkling clean to noisy, sea-sick inducing, pitch bending wobble.

We’ve designed a circuit that lets you adjust the delay time via a potentiometer – from one extreme to the other and everything in between. In it’s most extreme settings the device will produce some hiss – this would be expected within the last third of the voicing controls sweep.

Zinky Master Blaster – Another satisfied customer!

Hi Andy,

The Zinky Master Blaster really is a great pedal. I use it in combination with Telecasters and Dr.Z-Amps (Carmen Ghia and MAZ Jr.) and it really pushes these amps nicely for soloing. I compared it to a few other boosters: Fulltone Fat-Boost and Fulldrive , Xotic RC-Booster, Durham Sex Drive, Analogman KoT and this MXR/CAE booster. For me it is by far the best.

The Durham is nice too but I use it in a different way: as a kind of a decent compressor.

Thanks for the good service!

And now for something completely different…

ZVEX Wah ProbeYou might have thought there wasn’t much more that could be done to a Wah Wah pedal, especially with perennial classics like the Jim Dunlop Cry Baby to fall back on.

Well, think again, because the crazy minds over at Zvex have come up with something so special that you’ll literally by left footloose and fancy free when you’ve plugged this one in.

The thing that makes the Zvex Wah Probe so unique is its Therimin-based copper plate, which replaces the traditional pedal expression you’re used to putting your foot on. What this means is, as soon as you get your foot (or any other object) near the plate, the wah starts to engage. The sounds this can produce are endless, especially when you start passing movements quickly in front of the plate.

The wah probe also comes with what Zvex call a “Super hard on” boost with a dial you can crank up to breaking point.

All in all, if you want something more than a little different, both in playing style and output, the Wah Probe is the best place to start experimenting. There’s just nothing else quite like it.

Start experimenting with crazy sounds, buy the ZVEX Wah Probe at Gapco today.
