Our quick, virtual tour of the busy Dr J factory.
If you’re at all like us, you’re probably a bit curious how Dr J makes original design boutique quality pedals for so little. At the factory we got a look at how it’s all done.
From the start, the culture wall sets the tone. This is where Dr J sets the tone for the company. The wall is lined with images of the team and its accomplishments. Next stop the conference room for some high level discussions, then on the meeting room for a traditional ceremonial tea while discussing the products. Then comes materials, production, and testing. Then on to the extensive R&D department where there are many new products being developed. And finally to Dee Leung, the principal designer for Dr J.
We’re really impressed with the factory and product. One thing many players forget is that all the Dr J pedals are original design. Dee has really done a great job of creating original interpretations of some classic pedals and adding his own twist.
Says, Tone Report, “Dr. J has taken the build quality, ingenuity and tweakability several steps further, while similarly offering the pedal board-friendly size and extreme value-to-tone ratio.” Click here to read the Tone Report review on the Shadow Echo.
We’re partial to the Shadow Echo for it’s spacey vibe, the Sparrow Driver & DI as a no nonsense bass pre-amp and driver, and the Green Crystal for it’s not so straight interpretation of a classic overdrive pedal. But all the pedals are really usable. The Planes Walker Fuzz has both germanium and silicon transistors and does a good job emulating the Supro Sound. And the Aerolite Comp and Armor Buffer and good additions to any pedal board.
But don’t take our word for it, check one out now at your local music store and discovery for yourself what Dr J is all about.
Dr. J brings “Boutique” tone and vibe to the masses, at a price any musician can afford. With new, lower pricing, any musician can have the tone and features of much more expensive effect pedals. Studio quality effects, for $99! The lineup features nine extremely musical, intuitive, and useful effects.
Dr. J pedals are designed to be musical tools; they help you to expand your creativity. All pedals feature True-Bypass switching, to preserve your tone, and rock-solid construction. From Top Of The Line Analog Delay, to Studio Quality Compression, to Musical/Dynamic Overdrives and Distortions, Dr. J has you covered. All of this, at a price never seen before in the guitar market.
