Artist Series: Pete Thorn – Signature DynIR pack
This is the one you’ve been waiting for: we are excited to announce an exclusive DynIR partnership with legendary guitar player, musician and self-confessed ‘Guitar Nerd’, Pete Thorn.
Pete, the Two notes Team and the world-class engineers at Sunset Sound Studios have meticulously captured 5 DynIR virtual cabinets (from Pete’s personal collection) to ensure they fall nothing short of perfection. Only the best microphones, a legendary console and of course the very same cabs that have featured on countless recordings throughout Pete’s career – this is the one collection you can’t afford to miss, now available to buy exclusively in DynIR format, via the Two notes store.
Pete Thorn is a modern day guitar legend, a self-confessed Tone Connoisseur and Guitar Nerd. A hired gun for legends including Chris Cornell, Don Henley, Melissa Etheridge and countless others, he is maybe better known in recent times as the definitive resource for product demos and reviews via his hugely successful YouTube channel. One of, if not the, most trusted opinion-leaders within the global guitar community, if Pete says it’s good on his YouTube channel, then the customers know it will be just that.
Pete only puts his name on products he uses and trusts, and of course, the gear that will deliver his trademark immaculate tone consistently, day after day, night after night, in any musical situation.

Each DynIR was recorded through the legendary 68×16 Sunset Sound Custom Discreet Console via a H&H power Amp, in the iconic Studio 1 at the world-famous Sunset Sound, Los Angeles, California – the very same space where world famous recordings by Van Halen, The Rolling Stones, Tom Petty and countless others were captured.
These DynIR’s are an incredibly accurate and easy-to-use solution for those who want great speaker cab tone without all the volume, space, expense, and gear necessary to capture cabinets like this the traditional way! We’ve done the hard work for you, now you can bask in the glory of vintage Greenback goodness, V30 magic, Alnico Blue bliss and M75 scrumptiousness… all with a healthy dose of Sunset Sound studio magic. All you have to do is provide the amp (and the sweet riffs)! – Pete Thorn
Two notes are delighted that Pete has chosen to make his priceless collection of cabinets available exclusively to the Two notes DynIR ecosystem. The captures can be used with all applicable Torpedo hardware (including the Captor X & C.A.B. M+) and the Torpedo Wall of Sound audio plug-in.
