    I'm happy to announce the latest user of the OceanEFX Pearl Drive...blues man Joe Bonamassa! He's only had the pedal since June so gear photos are few and far between at this point. While he's currently using a stock (large enclosure) Pearl, we're talking about the possibility of a custom voiced small enclosure model for his board. I'll post pics and clips at some point when its completed. I'm revamping my "artists" page so I don't have him linked yet, but you can see him here:

    Joe has been one of my favorites for a couple of years now so needless to say, I'm pretty psyched...and thanks to TGP for your support!

    Great hook up. Joe is in a class by himself in my opinion. Congrats!

    Thanks again guys for chiming in...We'll see what happens. For those who have asked, the JB Pearl Drive will basically be a stock Pearl with some minor mods to the midrange voicing. Not sure yet of the specifics, however.

    Killer pedal. I won't be surprised if more guys like Bonamossa start picking them up.
