Juan Alderete of Mars Volta Endorses Amptweaker Bass TightDrive Pedal

Juan Alderete joins Amptweaker as the newest endorser of the Bass TightDrive overdrive pedal. Juan is the bass player for the Grammy award winning band The Mars Volta. He joined the band in 2003, and since then has played Madison Square Gardens and was featured on the cover of Bass Player magazine in March of 2005. His earlier music career included playing with Paul Gilbert in Racer X.

“After a solid day of blasting my ears looking for pedals at NAMM, the Amptweaker Bass TightDrive caught my attention as the tightest distortion. It has the sound of grind with the low end intact.” – Juan Alderete

The Mars Volta is currently on tour with Soundgarden.
