Joe Bonamassa News
Have you ever found yourself sitting in a completely dark room for an elongated period of time just yearning for a Joe Bonamassa live DVD to be released? Well I’m here to tell you that your wait is not over. However it almost is as coming up on the 27th of March a DVD is scheduled to be released starring, you’ve guessed it, Joe Bonamassa.
What’s that? You don’t give a crap about DVDs because you live in the future? Well good news. It’s also slated to be released on Blu-ray so you can marvel at the crisp clarity of Bonamassa’s sweaty brow glistening in the lights. Joining him in the performance are special appearances from Beth Hart, John Hiatt, and Paul Rodgers.
As for the content the DVD comes with two discs, the first which has 19 songs and the second filled with bonus material galore. I am uncertain if the Blu-ray with its vast storage space will compile both discs onto one disc or not though. Anyway. The content is as follows.

Joe Bonamassa Signature Dunlop Fuzz Face
Recently we had discussed Mr. Bonamassa’s new signature Crybaby pedal while his signature JBF3 Fuzz Face pedal.
The JBF3 takes a tried and true, legendary pedal and snaps it in the cheek like a wet towel with Bonamassa’s own zing. It’s hand-wired, uses NOS Russian military germanium transistors, and it’s all wrapped up in a polished copper chassis.
Tonally it adds a thick dose of fuzz and sustain to the signal.
All of this comes gift wrapped in a low, low price tag of just $199.
Joe Bonamassa Signature Seymour Duncan Pickups
Built to resemble the tone of Joe’s 59 Les Paul’s PAF humbuckers Mr. Bonamassa had spent baker’s dozens of hours in trial and error to reinvent said pickups and whipping and spinning them into a whole new set of humbuckers.
The techniques applied are as aged as the pickups they were replicating. The bridge pickup uses an alnico 2 magnet while the neck pickup features an alnico 3 magnet. Both use butyrate bobbins, antiqued nickel covers, and wooden spacers.
And for the proverbial cherry on top each set of humbuckers is hand signed by Seymour Duncan and Joe Bonamassa and a USB flash drive loaded with videos and bonus material is pitched in as well.
