SNAMM12: Compressor Sustainer And Germanium Overdrive In One
Pigtronix announces the Philosopher's Rock pedal 12-Jul-12
Pigtronix say that the Philosopher's Rock is a compressor sustainer and germanium overdrive pedal that expands the already notorious line of Philosopher pedals. The Philosopher's Rock is the over-achieving little brother of the company's top selling sustain pedal, the Philosopher's Tone. Pigtronix tells us that, simplified down to offer up the best sounds of its predecessor, the Philosopher's Rock sports a streamlined control layout plus the added benefit of germanium enhanced overdrive, along with an unbeatable price point.
The Philosopher's Rock utilizes Pigtronix award winning compression circuit that has been acclaimed by the likes of Andy Summers, Dweezil Zappa, Johnny Hiland and Billy Sheehan. On this new unit, the controls have been pared down to a classic compressor layout of just 2 knobs (Volume & Sustain) plus a single toggle switch for layering in a refined, vintage flavored germanium overdrive.
A spokesperson told Amped, "With a four times wider range of compression, endless sustain, germanium overdrive and a new vertical footprint and idiot proof control layout, the Philosopher's Rock is destined to become a future classic." Pricing and Availability:
Pigtronix Philosopher's Rock carries a list price of $175 and is available now at Pigtronix dealers everywhere.
