Drew Foppe is one of the busiest guitar techs in the music industry. He’s worked with Fleetwood Mac, Deftones, Slipknot, and many more of the most respected bands in the world. We caught up with him in Atlanta, GA while on tour with Smashing Pumpkins. Drew runs us through his tech box, focusing on the Orange VT1000 Valve Tester, the most portable valve tester on the market. He also gives us a special tour of the gear Smashing Pumpkin’s guitarists Billy Corgan and Jeff Schroeder are currently using on the road.
The compact and extremely easy to use Valve Tester is a fully automatic valve tester, which performs a wide range of tests quickly and accurately. The benefits of using the Valve Tester are clear and wide reaching; users can quickly and simply match and test valves, plus receive a reliable health check as to whether their valves are good, bad or worn.
