Destined to create more than just another effects pedal, Tone Box, Inc. sets out to break the mold of traditional stomp box shapes and tones adding a new dimension to every musician’s on-stage performance. Co-founded by industry veteran, Kasha and special effects creator, Shawn Crosby, Tone Box officially unveils its first product, the Skull Crusher. Kasha and Crosby saw the need to kick the pedal world into overdrive when they noticed, as Crosby states – “the current market selection was simply boring in their appearance and presentation on stage. We wanted something that adds a visual third dimension to the musicians playing and tone.” Aligning themselves with ‘A’ List rock stars and utilizing the production services of Rockmodules, Skull Crusher has opened the doors on what is only the beginning of a promising line of pedal effects.
Like a fine jeweler or a portrait sculptor, Crosby approached the housing of a stomp box with a different, but very skilled eye. He saw beyond the utilitarian tin can encompassing the electronics and seized an opportunity to enhance the musicians playing and tone by creating a visual third dimension that both inspired the musician and entertained the audience. Design and construction of the Skull Crusher is hand sculpted to the finest detail by trained artists, then molded and finished to the highest grade of finish. Enhancing the stainless steel body are red and blue LED’s that illuminate when the pedal is activated, achieving an eye-stunning effect. Production models are available in four finishes: gun metal, stainless steel, aged and ancient. Also available are custom precious metal models in 24k gold and sterling silver.
To compliment its captivating appearance, The Rockmodules technology inside of the Skull Crusher was designed after the Kasha Amplifiers Rockmod sound. It is the world’s first overdrive pedal with eight distinct analog voicing’s and can be used with guitar, bass or any other musical instrument. On the back of the head you will find the VOICING, TONE and GAIN controls to give the player flexibility like no other overdrive pedal. The voicing knob allows the musician to select from four presets labeled as CLEAR (3dB up), ICE (11 dB up), CHAINS (15dB up) and BODY (18 dB up). Combine these four with the 10 dB BOOST and the artist now has eight voices to create his wildest dreams.
In addition to the four production models, Tone Box will be accepting limited custom orders on a first come, first serve basis and pricing will very per order depending on the availability and requests of the customer.
Tone Box is actively seeking domestic dealers and international distributors.
Base Models start at $399.00 USD.
