Richard Fortus of Guns N' Roses is a well-known person within the Salvation Mods user community. Since 2012 he uses our VIVIDER octave pedal.  Richard was also one of the first users and testers of the Salvation TONEWHEEL Boost. His feedback was very useful and helped us to create the last version of the TONEWHEEL Boost.

On Richard’s last birthday we decided to do something really special for him.

Together with my friend, artist Maťo Mišík (website), we created a unique custom TONEWHEEL Boost pedal with a wooden hand-carved faceplate. Richard sent a few of photos of his actual gear for upcoming Guns N' Roses tour. In his pedalboard you can see our VIVIDER pedal as well as new TONEWHEEL “Dead Boost”.
