Dial in Some SRV with King Tone Guitar's Pedals, Switches and Mojo

Jesse Davey kicked off his six-string career with the Hoax, a cult U.K. blues outfit that released a killer debut album, Sound Like This, in 1994. The record, which features the ultra-funky “Scaramouche,” got respectable airplay around the world. But what really caught listeners’ ears was the way Davey and his fellow Hoax guitarist, Jon Amor, convincingly nailed the late Stevie Ray Vaughan’s tone, style and feel. Davey—in particular—turned it into an art form.

“I discovered Stevie when I was 15—only three days before he died,” Davey says. “Although I’d only known about him for a short time, his death was completely devastating to me. He’s gone on to have a massive influence on my life.”
