Pro Tone Pedals has teamed up with Megadeth’s David Ellefson to launch the Dawn Patrol Chorus pedal. Debuted at the London Bass Guitar Show, the stompbox is described as a tool to help recreate the bassist’s tone from the seminal album Rust In Peace.
“When Pro Tone approached me with the idea of making some signature pedals, as a bass player, chorus is one of my go-to effects live, an ace weapon in my arsenal, and in many regards, helped me transition my signature tone from studio to live on classic songs like “Dawn Patrol,'” Ellefson stated. “So the idea of developing a great chorus pedal was really a no-brainer. Dennis and the Pro Tone team are technical wizards and developed the DAWN PATROL to my exact specifications, and together we’ve created a high quality, hand-built stompbox pedal that I’m positive will find a special place in any bassist’s rig.”
The all-analog design is based on new old stock editions of the MN3007 BBD IC, which has been out of production. Pro Tone says it’s the key to providing a richer, fuller sound than modern chip sets. Ellefson’s signature pedal has Mix, Speed, and Depth controls for dialing in your tone with true hardwire bypass switching. It runs on a standard 9-volt negative tip BOSS style adapter and is housed in a durable aluminum chassis.
The Pro Tone Pedals Dawn Patrol Chorus Pedal is shipping now with a direct price of $209.
