January 16, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 


NAMM 2011 — Zoom is pleased to announce the addition of guitarist and lead vocalist Dave Mustaine of the iconic band Megadeth to our family of artists.

Mustaine has been a mainstay in the metal community for over 25 years, having formed Megadeth in 1983. Internationally acclaimed as one of the greatest metal guitarists in the world, Mustaine is also an accomplished producer.

Mustaine and Zoom will introduce the all-new ZOOM G2.1DM Dave Mustaine Signature Edition Guitar Effects Pedal at a press conference on Saturday, January 15, 2010 from 1:00pm-1:30pm at the Zoom booth (#5940).

“This pedal is built for action,” declares Mustaine. “With my personal sound effects and a large expression pedal modeled after the accelerator of one of my favorite sports cars onboard, the ZOOM G2.1DM leaves all contenders at the starting line.”

2010 was a huge year for Mustaine and Megadeth. It marked the 20th Anniversary of Rust In Peace, considered one of the most influential heavy metal albums of all time. Megadeth also performed as part of the “The Big Four” tour in Europe alongside Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax, as well as the “American Carnage” tour. And 2011 is expected to be even bigger.

“It’s been a honor working closely with Dave on this new pedal,” says Mark Menghi, Artist Relations Director. “Zoom has been fully-committed to capturing his thrash metal guitar sound in the ZOOM G2.1DM. We are excited to be unleashing it on guitar players everywhere.”

fuzz-face-jbf3-bonamassaFollowing in the footsteps of Fuzz Face masters Eric Johnson, David Gilmour, and Jimi Hendrix – Joe Bonamassa relies on his Fuzz Face to deliver his trademark searing leads. Tested and developed over several world tours, the JBF3 Joe Bonamassa Signature Fuzz Face is voiced specifically for Joe’s humbucker-driven tone, adding sustain and thickness for a rich, creamy fuzz.

Dunlop Fuzz Face JBF3 pedal boasts a hand-wired circuitry built around matched NOS Russian military germanium transistors for their characteristic warmth and growl. The JBF3 also features classic grey Cliff jacks and Omeg pots all housed in a polished copper finish that will patina over time. “I wanted this Fuzz Face to be a pedal that would instantly transform your tone,” Joe says. “It drives you to a different place as a player.
