Renowned US boutique guitar pedal company ProTone Pedals have teamed up with guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite, announcing their latest addition to their signature artist roster.. the MGT Dirty Chorus is a tweaked out evolution of the Raven Dirty Chorus, only this handwired version is optimized for guitar frequencies with an overhauled amp-like drive circuit, making it all his own.

MGT – known for his work with the likes of goth rockers like The Mission and Peter Murphy, Trip Hop svengali Tricky, classic rock & rollers like Thin Lizzy’s Ricky Warwick and The Who’s Roger Daltrey, and known in industrial circles for his collaborations with Revolting Cocks and Gary Numan, had this to say:

“My friend the late Paul Raven of Killing Joke came up with the original concept of the Raven Dirty Chorus back in 2007 – while we were working on the Mob Research debut album – and almost a decade since his untimely passing, I’m proud to announce the relaunch of this brilliant pedal with a few MGT refinements and an updated circuit! Thanks to Protone for making this dream a reality”
