It’s been a while, but I figured it was time to step away from the usual overdrive and distortion pedals. I don’t want to step too far away so I’m going with a brand I know and trust from the realm of guitar pedals. A brand that produced one of my all-time favourite distortion pedals—Skumstortion.
Pro Tone Pedals knows how to make awesome looking and awesome sounding guitar pedals. Knowing that, I am confident that the Paul Masvidal Signature Chorus pedal would be an amazing pedal to add to my collection. Truth be told, Skumstortion and a good chorus would be all I’d need for the majority of music I like to play. … 52 pedals, week 16—Pro Tone Pedals Paul Masvidal Signature Chorus
Last month, Mick from the Guitarist Guild forums posted a thread asking what experiences people had to share regarding online purchases (related to guitar gear). I shared my list of mostly good experiences and thought I’d expand upon that here. Why? Because although the experiences have been mostly good—actually, very good—there is that one bad experience I’d like to get out there and finally move on from. That experience is the Buddemeyer Hangnail Pro guitar that never happened and left me out-of-pocket $625USD. … Online guitar related shopping experiences—the good and the bad
My six scary questions series has been fun for me. And it’s been simple (on account of my own laziness). When I approached Pro Tone Pedals to see if they’d be interested in participating, two things happened that made me incredibly happy.
They said “Sure”.
They offered to provide answers in the form of a YouTube video.
Did you know there is a Pro Tone Pedals Winter Riff Wreckage contest going on right now? Well, there is. I know because I decided to enter (plus I like to keep up to date with all-things Pro Tone Pedals on account of my awesome Skumstortion pedal). Anyhow, you’re probably wondering how terrible my entry is. Never fear! My entry (also embedded at the end of this article) is terrible in playing ability, but awesome in tone. I’m hoping that helps me win the third prize of kudos.
Recently I wrote about the Skumstortion pedal I purchased from Pro Tone Pedals. It’s a wicked sounding (and looking) pedal. I knew that. I’d written about it. I just hadn’t been able to share the auditory coolness with people … Until now. I bring you terrible video footage of my favourite Pro Tone Pedals Skumstortion settings.
Recently Pro Tone Pedals had a Flash Sale of the Skumstortion pedal which allowed me to pick it up for just $50.00 plus postage. I’d been watching Pro Tone Pedals for a while on the likes of Twitter and YouTube and always liked the look (and sound) of what I’d seen so I jumped at the opportunity. Having now received my pedal in the mail, I’m glad I did. This pedal rocks.
I might try to make my own video one day soon—this would be a first for me on this kind of thing—so you can see and hear the tonal varieties this pedal has to offer. For now, check out what I got in the mail. … Skumstortion by Pro Tone Pedals
