Drowning Pool Guitarist C.J Pierce Relies On DigiTech® HardWire™ HT-2 For Latest Tour

Guitarist C.J. Pierce of the Dallas-based metal band Drowning Pool is currently on tour to support the band’s current release “Full Circle? on Eleven Seven Music. C.J. has been utilizing the new DigiTech® HardWire™ HT-2 chromatic tuner to keep himself in tune throughout the tour. C.J. has been using DigiTech® effects for many years including the GSP2112 preamp processor and the Whammy4™ for all his tones and pitch shifting effects.

Drowning Pool is a four-piece rock band that was formed in 1996. They rose to fame while playing along with Ozzy Osbourne during an Ozzfest tour in 2001. Their most recent album has a post-grunge sound and is less heavy than their previous work. The first single off the album, “Soldiers,” is dedicated to all the men and women of the United States Army.

Last year Drowning Pool’s rehearsal and storage space was broken into with most of the gear being stolen including Pierce’s GSP2112. After last year’s incident, C.J. has obtained the GSP1101 preamp and is pleased to have reproduced all of his signature tones on the new model. Speaking about the preamp C.J said, “The GSP1101 is amazing! It has replaced all of my old GSP2112’s.?

The DigiTech Hardwire Series HT-2 is a chromatic tuner pedal that is visible, accurate and durable when in use, transparent when not. The cornerstone of every pedalboard is a reliable tuner. The HardWire Chromatic Tuner’s true bypass means that when it is off, it’s out of the circuit.

DigiTech Artist Relations Manager Paul Muniz stated, “C.J. has always had crushing guitar tones. With the kind of abuse the gear takes on the road, it’s great to know that C.J. and the boys can rely night after night on our products to deliver.?
