Pigtronix Announces Release of the Philosopher’s Rock Pedal

ModKitsDIY

The Philosopher’s Rock is a compressor sustainer and germanium overdrive pedal that expands the already notorious line of Philosopher pedals from Long Island’s Pigtronix effects.  The Philosopher’s Rock is the over-achieving little brother of the company’s top selling sustain pedal, the Philosopher’s Tone.  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 paired 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.

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.
