Pigtronix Philosopher's Twin Germanium



Designed and built exclusively for Sweetwater the limited-edition Custom Shop Philosopher’s Twin gives you infinite sustain — with virtually no added noise! Based on the original Philosopher’s Tone, the Philosopher’s Twin provides you smooth optical compression, epic sustain, and all of the super-flexible controls that made the original such a hit. But that’s not all. The Philosopher’s Twin doubles down with an extra footswitch that lets you kick in a Germanium enhanced “Grit” distortion circuit. With the push of this footswitch, you can instantly take your tone from ultra-clean compression to screaming vintage overdrive. Turn Lead to Gold with this incredible custom shop pedal from Pigtronix.
