Just from listening its always sounded to me like he had a fair amount of midrange and a very tight sound as well as a bit of chorus which is were the aforementioned digital sound comes in.

Okay guys here's some good news for some of you.


I will quote Rusty Cooley from the Outworld forum:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Jason Becker and Pro Tone Pedals team up to bring you the Perpetual Burn Distortion Pedal

Crossroads, TX – June 29, 2008 – Pro Tone Pedals is pleased to announce the newest member of the Pro Tone family- the legendary Jason Becker.

World renowned guitarist Jason Becker and cutting edge guitar effects manufacturer Pro Tone Pedals join forces to recreate the incendiary tones from Jason's genre defining album Perpetual Burn.

The dual channel, all analog design will emulate the gear that Jason used during the recording of the Perpetual Burn LP while adding extreme flexibility and tone sculpting options.

Channel 1 will consist of a modified version of the distortion pedal favored by Jason at the time.
Channel 2 will house an analog emulation of the two amplifiers Jason preferred to use melded into one circuit.

Top names in the world of modern shred guitar including Rusty Cooley will be lending a hand in the testing and development of the Perpetual Burn Distortion as Jason was diagnosed in 1989 with Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS) and has since lost the ability to play the guitar.

Jason's father, Gary Becker, will be providing the artwork to create a stunning combination of image and sound.

To interact with Jason Becker fans and Pro Tone during product development visit the blog dedicated to this project at http://blog.ProTonePedals.com

Release date: September 1, 200"

The first channel is going to be like a distortion pedal and the second channel like two different overdrive pedals I think.

nah...... the second channel is the amp simulation....at least that is what I read on the pro tone site, it will be the most awesome of awesome pedals I think you for the information though

EDIT:
wait a second.... you said that the second channel is amp simulation!!

Yes I know but thats like and overdrive, since there's no tubes (as far as I know) it's basically the same as an overdrive. A preamp to be more exact. While the other is like a distortion pedal, much more gain and totally different sound.

oh
I see what you were saying
sorry about that.... an extra tube preamp is a good idea though but probably too expensive for me at the moment.

OK Guys...
This is Dennis from Pro Tone Pedals. We just finished up a big round of prototype testing with Rusty Cooley... and heres the latest on the configuration of the pedal as a direct result of the killer session Rusty and I had-

Channel 1 will be the emulation of Jasons amp. It started off as a JCM800 emulation, but then grew a bit when Jason informed us that he liked the jcm900 he was using later in his career.
Channel 2 will be a simple clean boost.

The way the boost interacts with the circuit is extremely cool. It adds more bite and tone to the distortion, and obviously adds more volume. The distortion from the emulator really drives the boost into more distortion... this configuration really sounds great

The overdrive going into the distortion is great in the amp world, but here in the pedal realm it really sucked! Was way too noisy. So we scrapped that plan.

Swing by the development blog and feel free to ask us any questions, or post your comments.

All the best!

Well then... yeah, it'll be too expensive. ;) Sorry... but here in the US it will sell for $289.00

Take care!

I am subscribed to his blog on myspace and i read (directly from Jason) that the numbered guitar was from jackson, but they would not reissue the guitar but thought Peavey was going to.
He also said in his blog that he was selling his amp heads. He had a Marshall plexi with mushroom cap tubes and some Carvin head. The buyer of these heads had the opportunity to pick the amp up in person and hang out with Jason. Jason want $10,000 for the Marshall and $2,000 for the Carvin. I'm trying to find the link to the blogs but i have alot of them from him on ehre adn is taking along time to find.
