Mark Holcomb’s Pro Tone Pedals Delay Shore is Haunted

Finally, a chance to use my favorite delay-based joke ever:


Why is The Edge the greatest guitar player of all time?

Because every time he makes a mistake, he has to hear it 16 times in stereo!

Pro Tone Pedals loves the progressive metal guys. They offer signature pedals for Keith Merrow of Conquering Dystopia, Misha Mansoor of Periphery, and Paul Masvidal of Cynic. Now they have added one of Periphery’s other guitarists to their roster, Mark Holcomb, to leave them just one shy of collecting the whole set.

The Pro Tone Haunted Delay pedal is an analog delay, with four simple control knobs – Delay (25-450 ms), Repeat (which controls how many times you hear what you played again), Mix (how much of the delayed signal you hear) and Volume (which also acts as an up to 20 db clean boost).

Everything about this pedal is pretty. The actual casing of the pedal is pretty, the sounds it makes are pretty as hell, and the price is pretty high. But this is the real deal, and not a digital recreation, so if quality delay is a part of your sound, (The Edge take note) then I’m sure you’ll find this one to be a steal. Don’t take my word for it though, have a listen to the video below, hear it from the (dead) horse‘s mouth and decide for yourself.

The pedal is $283 with shipping and ships September 15th, direct from

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
