I haven’t posted a SDOTD (Stupid Deal of the Day) post in a little while – thought it was about time! This time, it’s a pretty great pedal, and one that I’ve been wanting for a little while. The pedal is the Pigtronix Philosopher’s Tone, which is a fantastic and very popular compressor / sustainer.
I’ve been a big fan of Pigtronix over the years. They have been pumping out top-notch and innovative pedals for years, and definitely should be on your pedal company radar!
Here is what the official pedal description:
The Pigtronix Philosopherâ€™s Tone is a state-of-the-art analog compressor / sustainer, providing endless clean sustain. With variable Sustain, Blend and Treble controls, the Philosopherâ€™s Tone offers a huge range of compression sounds for the discerning musician. The Philosopherâ€™s Tone also contains a harmonic distortion for clean or dirty compression sounds and any mixture of the two. While the Philosopherâ€™s Tone rocks on its own, it is designed to play well with other dirt pedals in order to create your ultimate distortion tone that sustains forever.
Pigtronix Philosopherâ€™s Tone is unlike the common compressor. This pedal hasÂ more sustainÂ andÂ less noise. The dynamic range, touch sensitivity, overall transparency and outright sustain of the Philosopherâ€™s Tone is un-paralleled in the crowded world of compressor pedals.
Practitioners of the mystical and ancient art of alchemy long sought an element called the Philosopherâ€™s Stone, believing that, if found, it could turn lead into gold and bestow immortality upon the man who wielded it. For such a tiny pedal to create so much sustain, this device represents a musical equivalent to this mythical substance in the world of guitar pedals.
