WAT?!?!?!?!


Is this in addition to the new Chuck Taylors and missing ashes???

 

 

srsly, what's w/ all the KC stuff lately? Poor dude - none of this stuff is even cool. Ok, it's kinda cool (in a sick way) that someone stole his ashes. I mean, who does that?

Pro Tone Intros Lithium Chorus

Thursday, December 08, 2005

 

Pro Tone Lithium chorusPro Tone Pedals has introduced its latest effect pedal, The Lithium Chorus.

 

The Lithum is modeled after one of the most famous chorus pedals of all time, one made even more popular by late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain.

 

The Lithium has an added depth control giving you more tonal flexibility and allowing lush aural spaces. The Lithium uses hand-picked analog components and incorporates the legendary 4558 op amp from Texas Instruments.

 

Features:

 

* Operates on a standard 9 volt battery or optional BOSS style adapter.

* Stomp switch is built to withstand 30,000 stomps.

* Durable aluminum housing with an enamel finish.

* Hand-built Point to Point construction.

* Color-coded LED for easy onstage identification

 

The Lithium Chorus has a list price of US $189.00.

he bought most of gear at junk stores and they release a 189.00 pedal to recreate that sound?? he probably didn't have that much in his pedals and guitars all together.

 

hopefully I am reading this wrong or misunderstanding

In other words, an overpriced Small Clone clone. And probably shoddily constructed, given their reputation.

That is really {censored}ing stupid. The shoes are retarded and then they're going to release a pedal named after a anti-depressant he was on/ used (not sure how long) which more than likely {censored}ed with his head more and possibly contributing to his suicide.

I think they were going more for the song title tribute, but point taken.

And the 4558 is only legendary in reference to its use in a Tube Screamer. Use it somewhere else and it could easily sound worse than some other opamp.

 

I like the bit about "hand picked" components. Now, if they were "foot picked" I'd be more impressed.

Indeed, I'll use tl072 opamps over 4885s anyday, unless I'm specifically looking for lower quality sound (hasn't happened yet)

 

and of course, we're still talking about components that cost hardly more than a dollar, if that

to extend the absurdity of this thread.. which 6 sounds would you actually choose if you had to?

 

..uh

 

'come as you are' chorus.

'something in the way/All Apologies' acoustic sim

'negative creep' dark fuzz.

'smells like teen spirit' lead sound

 

 

ugh.. i give up.. there's not enough signature sounds. lol
