Generations of guitar players have sought noiseless clean sustain from a compressor, and this was the guiding goal of the research and design behind Philosopher’s Tone, yielding a compressor with an internal 18 volts of headroom and naturally musical tone control.
The Evolution of Philosopher’s Tone
First released in 2009 and igniting a new following for Pigtronix, the Philosopher’s Tone 2 is a “best of” design, incorporating the best elements of previous iterations plus a completely redefined Grit knob for significantly more versatility.
Practitioners of the mystical and ancient art of alchemy long sought an element called the Philosopher’s Stone. They believed, if found, it could turn lead into gold and bestow immortality upon the person who wielded it. Philosopher’s Tone 2 allows players to conjure gleaming sustain, soaring lead tones, and articulation across all six strings.
