When the guest of honor pronounced Mike Kerr, his band members hugged him excitedly!
The female vocal was so excited when the award presentation took place, she was not satisfied with her photo taken that time, so during the dinner party, she posed for another one.Congratulations to Mike and his band!
Here are the pedals Mike Kerr is using currently：
This is his pedal board, he used it in NAMM SHOW, Whisky a gogo, at the opening show for Campeonato Brasileiro. You can see JOYO’s POWER TUNE: it combines both power supply and tuner into one product, the classic JF-01 Vintage Overdrive and D-SEED：Dual channel digital delay.
What’s more, Mike Kerr has one more powerful weapon——The latest model of Dr.J, D-59 Lancelot！
This D-59 Lancelot distortion pedal has received positive feedbacks from the audience of NAMM SHOW and MESSE. Mike often talked about this pedal since he tested it at NAMM 2016, therefore we gave him a Lancelot handmade by our engineer prior to the mass production. According to Mike, he takes this pedal wherever he performs. Maybe JOYO will design a signature pedal modeled on Lancelot for Mike Kerr later on.
