Mastodon's Bill Kelliher Packs His Pedalboard With HardWire® Extreme Performance Pedal
April 27, 2010
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah - HardWire®, a leading manufacturer of guitar pedals and a Harman International company (NYSE-HAR), is pleased to announce that guitarist Bill Kelliher from the Atlanta-based heavy metal band Mastodon is using HardWire® pedals both in the studio and currently on tour.
"The HardWire pedals give me the tones that I've been looking for and are hardwire bypass. HardWire pedals are the most tour-worthy pedals on the planet," stated Kelliher. Currently, he has loaded his touring pedalboard with the Valve Distortion.
The SC-2 Valve Distortion Pedal that Kelliher uses provides two types of harmonically charged distortion tones: Crunch and Saturated. The Crunch Mode provides the player with plenty of gain along with mids that cut through onstage. Saturated Mode adds extra gain for maximum sustain, making it ideal for solos. As with all HardWire pedals, the SC-2 is crafted from premium all-metal components to perform night after night, tour after tour.
Each HardWire pedal also features an assortment of tour-worthy accessories like green gaffer tape common to pro pedalboards, Stomplock™ knob guards to maintain pedal settings, and a hook & loop pad to fasten the pedal to a pedalboard.
Kelliher and Mastodon are currently on world tour with Metallica and kick off their upcoming US tour later this month.
