PREVIEW: Pro Tone’s Perpetual Burn, Jason Becker signature pedal!
Pro Tone Pedals is pleased to announce the newest member of the Pro Tone family- the legendary Jason Becker.
World renowned guitarist Jason Becker and cutting edge guitar effects manufacturer Pro Tone Pedals join forces to recreate the incendiary tones from Jason's genre defining album Perpetual Burn. The dual channel, all analog design will emulate the gear that Jason used during the recording of the Perpetual Burn LP while adding extreme flexibility and tone sculpting options:
Channel 1 will consist of a modified version of the distortion pedal favored by Jason at the time.
Channel 2 will house an analog emulation of the two amplifiers Jason preferred to use melded into one circuit.
Top names in the world of modern shred guitar will be lending a hand in the testing and development of the Perpetual Burn Distortion as Jason was diagnosed in 1989 with Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS) and has since lost the ability to play the guitar. Jason's father, Gary Becker, will be providing the artwork to create a stunning combination of image and sound.
Release date: September 1, 2008
List Price: $289
