Everybody wants freedom from restrictions and compromises. Everybody wants a peek into the infinite. Everybody wants eternal youth…
So we went ahead and built it into a pedal – the everlasting JPTR FX ETERNAL YOUTH – a unique interpretation of a dimed full stack with two channels to exploit the JFET-circuits true character and full tonal ambiguity. A pedal that leaps between nostalgia and ‘Sehnsucht’, the longing for the hereafter, the Eternal Youth is designated for the players who wish they could clone their favourite always on pedal and kick it into the stomach.
The raw dynamic response of this pedal is tuned to the sounds of early 70s expressiveness/subtlety/articulation and 80s cheek/bluntness/edge/sharpness , with distinctly chimey and shimmering overtones and very addictive feel. Shared volume and tone controls make this the perfect always on pedal with a double personality we wished we always had.
Naturally, the Eternal Youth loves to be stacked and boosted like the gain stage of any amp, and can be run on 9 through 18V. It thrives off of its duality and inner contrast, that encompasses both ‘at the verge of breakup’ honesty and bellowing deviousness – or hardcore and dad rock – with the ease of a tap.
Tastes change, but so do we – and the Eternal Youth captures all these changes in a small footprint duplex. It is full of timeless and imperishable flavours reflected by our own long and unique musical journey, making this our landmark drive unit and our new favourite pedal in our catalogue.
The King is dead. Long live the immortal King.
