Band: JP Soars & the Red Hots
Hometown: Boca Raton, FL
From metal guitarist to...blues? JP is a one of-a-kind convert whose finger acrobatics expertise and extraordinary sound have earned him a popularity on various XM radio stations including Garage XM, and praise by Albert King as most promising guitarist. Perhaps one of the most visually noticeable elements of his live show is a DYI home made guitar which is basically built out of "a plywood box, a stick, two strings and a pickup". He recently embarked on a new musical adventure with the formation of band Southern Hospitality signed to Blind Pig Records.
what he says
"I love my Big Joe classic tube stomp box! I've tried numerous overdrive pedals over the years and this one suits my needs and then some. I especially like the fact that it doesn't color the sound of my guitar and lets the true tone of the instrument shine through. The highs are sparkling and chiming. The mids and lows have a nice growl to them. It's very well built, durable and holds up to night after night of gigging. Top that off with it being made right here in the USA! Awesome!!!! Thanks so much for building a "proper' pedal!"
