Squeezing it all in

Here area a few shots during the layout process. Trying to make everything fit and still functional on top.

Notice a slight change in the art...







Take care!

Jason Becker Perpetual Burn Distortion part 1... the saga begins

Today is Thursday June 26th, 2008... Tomorrow we will mail the 'official' press release regarding the partnership between Pro Tone and Jason.

I'm going to try my hardest to post as frequently as possible during the design and development phase. For us here this is not just another signature product in the guitar market. Jason is a special guy with amazing fans and they deserve nothing but the best Pro Tone Pedals has to offer.

Let me catch you up on how the ball got rolling...
On 6/11/08 I posted a blog on MySpace ranting about Guitar Center. We've received a flood of positive feedback from that rant, one of the supporters was Dave at Paradise Guitars. Paradise Guitars is currently working on a Jason Becker signature guitar. So... Dave contacts us, says it would be cool to also put out a JB pedal using Gary Beckers (Jason's dad) art. After a few days of Emails between Dave and I, he passes JBs contact info, and I made the call to Jason on 6/18/08.

After a few days of research we began prototyping on 6/21/08. Luckily Jason's gear at the time was very straight forward, nothing really exotic about it. The same 6/21 date saw Jason provide us with the first round of art work. I say its the first round because at this point it could change.

Here is the first concept art for the Jason Becker Perpetual Burn Distortion:
