Sweetwater-exclusive Sustainer/Distortion from Pigtronix

Pigtronix builds some of the coolest, most drool-worthy stompboxes out there. Now we’re proud to announce that they’ve custom-built one just for us — and you! The new Philosopher’s Twin gives your guitar incredible sustain, with ultra-smooth compression. This beauty lets you take lead parts to new levels and add girth to chords. The Philosopher’s Twin has all the controls you need to dial in your tone. The “Twin” part is the second footswitch, which triggers smooth germanium diode-clipping “grit” with its own adjustment knob. Use the Blend control to mix clean and dirty compression sounds to your liking.

On its own, the Philosopher’s Twin sounds fantastic, but it loves other pedals. Use it to hit the front end of your favorite box — you’ll love the way the compression and sustain from this pedal add new vitality to all your stomps. This Sweetwater-exclusive pedal looks great too, thanks to a custom paint job from renowned pedal artist Jason Myrold. You’ll only find the Philosopher’s Twin here, so call your Sales Engineer today.
