Zoom announces Dave Mustaine signature effects pedal
(Dave Molter | Posted 2011-01-16)
Guitarist and lead vocalist Dave Mustaine of the iconic band Megadeth and Zoom Corporation introduced the all-new G2.1DM Dave Mustaine Signature Edition Guitar Effects Pedal during a press conference at Winter NAMM 2011.
“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 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 G2.1DM. We are excited to be unleashing it on guitar players everywhere.”
