The Jan Ray for Tomo Fujita is a special model Jan Ray created under the supervision of Tomo Fujita. It was conceived to capture and realise his ideal tone color without losing the integrity of the original Jan Ray sound.
・The Bass and Treble control is modified to reflect Tomo Fujita's favored EQ setting when they are in the 12 o'clock position
・The total gain amount is reduced, allowing one to make gain adjustments at fine increments
・The overall tone color is bright in comparison to the original Jan Ray
Tomo Fujita's Comment:
"In my opinion, good tone comes from a guitar connected directly into an amp. But one would need a fairly large amp to achieve a natural distortion, and thus, many of us use pedals. Of all the pedals out there, my favourite is the Vemuram Jan Ray. It creates a natural polished tone without manipulating the guitar and amp sound. I personally use a lot of picking dynamics on a wide range depending on the nuance. I have had my Jan Ray modified to bring that aspect to life. It is basically the original Jan Ray with a more sensitive volume knob, smoother tone, and with the bass a little reserved. It reflects one's playing ability fully. I am very honoured to have Vemuram release my Jan Ray mod and at the same time very happy that my fans will be able to use the same Jan Ray that I am using. Please enjoy this wonderful tone."
