The FX Pedals Range

Trev Wilkinson is a legend in the guitar world for his innovative and faultless guitar hardware and pickups, which deliver stellar tonality. His progressive approach to building guitars, and his unerring ability to think outside of every design box, is now presented in Fret-King FX pedals – his first foray into the world of stompboxes. With the emphasis set firmly on tone, Trev has instilled his true boutique ethos into these pedals. Each effect has been comprehensively researched and benchmarked against an enviable collection of highly collectible original vintage pedals and devices. Meticulously and authentically voiced, Fret-King FX Pedals deliver tones you’ll recognise straight out of the box.

Choose the pedals you want, plug in, flick the switch, and experience the way your music was always meant to sound. Add to this the usual Fret-King standards – rugged, durable die-cast aluminium casing, true bypass technology, classy design, and dual paired inputs where necessary – and you have pedals that will take your playing to new levels, define your sound, and fill stadiums. Fret-King pedals – treat your tone.

John Jorgenson touring Europe with Fret-King

John Jorgenson Fret-King Country Squire Semitone

Virtuoso guitarist, John Jorgenson, who has worked with artists as diverse as the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Elton John, Sting, Bob Dylan and Luciano Pavarotti is about to embark on a tour of Europe with his own band.

The John Jorgeson Electric Band which also comprises of Alan Thomson on bass (John Martyn, Andy Summers, Julia Fordham) Cesare Valbusa on drums (Albert Lee, James Burton, Tommy Emmanuel) Franz Bazzani on keyboards (Sousaphonix, James Burton) play an eclectic and original mix of music heavily influenced by John's 'Gypsy Jazz' style (The John Jorgenson Quintet is the only US act to headline the prestigious Django Reinhardt Memorial Festival in France). The month long tour kicks off in Italy on 30th April, and will also take in dates in Germany and Scotland.

For this series of shows John was looking for a fixed bridge guitar. "I was really impressed with my friend Jerry Donahue's Fret-King Black Label FKJVBK I tried out at NAMM Show," says John (John was a member of The Hellecasters alongside Jerry Donahue and Will Ray). "It played and sounded excellent. I was curious to try Jerry's pickup and electronics setup on a semi acoustic body and rosewood fingerboard…"

Over to guitar guru and Fret-King designer Trev Wilkinson who set to work putting together a unique, one-off Fret-King Black Label Series Country Squire Semitone guitar to John's specs within a couple of weeks in time to ship it out to Verona, Italy for the first show.

An enthusiastic John emailed over "The guitar arrived safely and it's fantastic! I used it last night for a short performance and it sounded and played really well. Tonight I'll give it more if a workout on a full show and let you know my other thoughts, but first impression I love it!!"
