Committed to the design and manufacturing of futuristic analog effects, Pigtronix has been introducing musicians to strange, new tonal worlds since 2004. Today, their dedicated team of forward-thinkers continue to expand on their already extensive lineup of unique and original guitar pedals for a wide range of tastes and playing styles.
From distortion and overdrive to delay, phasing, tremolo and everything in between, Pigtronix pedals are crafted and engineered by musicians, for musicians. In fact, the effects pedals in this catalog are championed worldwide for their distinct designs and features that cannot be found in other stompboxes. For this reason, Pigtronix has an ever-growing roster of top recording artists who continually use Pigtronix effects pedals, including Aerosmith, the Flaming Lips, the Darkest Hour and countless others.
For an ideal example of Pigtronix's cutting-edge craftsmanship, check out the Philosopher King.
Specifically designed to re-imagine the essential nature of any source, the Pigtronix Philosopher King combines compressor, sustainer, distortion and a polyphonic amplitude synthesizer into one truly impressive effects unit. Some features include a pick triggered volume swell effect, and a one shot mode, which allows the pedal to run through the swell/fade/hold/release cycle, regardless of what's being played after the cycle is triggered. Bursting with a seemingly endless array of capabilities, the Pigtronix Philosopher King is a trailblazer in the world of boutique pedals.
Pigtronix also constructs bass stompboxes, and the Bass Fat Drive effects pedal is a groovers dream come true. Built after the success of the Pigtronix FAT Drive, this analog tube emulator and overdrive for the bass provides players with low-end grind that ranges from soft and warm to crushing high gain. When used with a solid state amp, the Pigtronix Bass Fat Drive is a perfect way of adding an organic depth to your sound.
Effects pedals make an exceptional addition to any adventurous guitar player's toolbox, and when you incorporate Pigtronix effects pedals into your equipment setup, there's no telling what kinds of cool new tones you might stumble upon. Whether you're layering different tracks in the studio or broadening the possibilities of your live performance, you can bet that Pigtronix has everything you need to explore your musical horizons.
