Jim Campilongo “The Black Label” Signature Edition Launched

By Artists, Press Release, The Black Label, The Distillery, Videos

When we set out on a path to develop the ultimate expression of the world’s best tone-shaping boost, our award winning “The Distillery”, we had four artists in mind for prototype development.  Starting in April 2015 we sent a prototype to Jim Campilongo, followed by prototypes to Nels Cline, Pat Metheny, Bill Frisell and David Hidalgo of Los Lobos.

The result is “The Black Label”. Fine tuned and refined to meet the demands of some of the world’s most discerning players.  We are thrilled to collaborate Jim Campilongo on this very special limited edition, a true master of the Fender Telecaster and a player with a unique voice on the instrument.

  • The Ultimate Expression of the World’s Best Tone-Shaping Boost
  • Limited Edition of 25 pieces Worldwide

Nels Cline: How I Use The Distillery

By Artist Interviews, Artists, Distillery Videos, The Distillery, Videos

The Distillery was developed with some of the world’s greatest guitar players. This is the first video of artist demos “How I Use The Distillery” featuring the man who named it, the incomparable Nels Cline of Wilco, The Nels Cline Singers and a much more!

Many of our artists use The Distillery in different ways. The one constant, it makes any rig sound better. More artist videos coming featuring:


"The Distillery does for my Tele what Wes Montgomery's thumb did for his L-5; it adds body and character while surrounding the tone with a sugary, natural sort of air. It's one of the first gain stages I've used that fully supports me when I'm improvising instead of forcing me to come up with ideas to suit the pedal. I love that it follows my lead and lets me play anywhere on the fretboard without sounding muffled or ice-picky. It's a new mainstay."

Zane Carney on The Distillery

“This is one of my new go-to pedals. If you have an amp that just sounds OK, this pedal can make it sound great!”

Kenny Wayne Shepherd on The Distillery

“The Distillery allows me to get a smooth overdrive and great tone without ripping people’s heads off !!!”

Robert Randolph on The Distillery

“The Distillery makes my amp sound like it was on legal steroids! Thank you ToneConcepts, you’ve done it again!”

Jim Campilongo on The Distillery

“Don’t change a thing! I love it just he way it is! I have it on all the time. It is my favourite pedal!”

David Hidalgo on The Distillery

“Love it!  The sound is killer! It makes my amps sound even better!”

Steve Lukather on The Distillery
