Whirlwind signs John5

Alternative guitar legend for Rob Zombie takes Whirlwind on tour and in the studio.

For John 5 the music is not just about playing, but living, breathing, feeling and passion. His impressive resume has seen him work with some of the most renowned musicians in the industry and has cemented his name into the annals of rock history. John 5 may have been underrated when he first began his solo career four years ago but he should not be underestimated. His work is both extensive and eclectic. His range sees him fit into many different genres which makes him hard to label. He has however become one of the best shred guitarists of recent years and has won the admiration of artists such as Paul Gilbert, Bumblefoot, Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai and Joe Satriani – to list but a few. John is currently on tour with Rob Zombie and is selling out performance after performance.

John is currently using our Gold Box Distortion pedal, Bomb pedal, Selector AB box, Multi-Selector 4 channel, rack mounted amp switcher and all of his guitar cables. Check out the tour schedule posted below, and if they're coming to a venue near you, they remain an absolute must see. Thanks again John for melting our faces off, and thank you for choosing Whirlwind.

Nothing compares to the sound of hand-wired classic curcuits. It was as true back in the day as it is today. Thanks again Whirlwind, keep up the great work!”  John 5.
