At the tender age of 14, Junior (JET) Thomason began his musical career. Cutting his teeth in Rockabilly, Psychobilly and Surf bands, he became a master of riling up crowds with insane sax sounds. Sharing the stage with The Reverend Horton Heat, Los Straightjackets, Dick Dale, Southern Culture on the Skids, Legendary Shackshakers and the Rockabilly A-list goes on. On these stages, Junior picked up stand up bass, electric bass and guitar - becoming a talented multi-instrumentalist. It was on these stages, his love of tone became real.

Enter Jesus and Electronics Engineering
In 2010, Junior began course study in electronics engineering and developed an electronic smoker, lighting control panels among other prototypes and began computer programming. In 2013, Junior hung up his gig bag and dove head-first into the rich worship music culture of The Vineyard. These musicians officially raised the bar on huge guitar sounds. Junior's (self-proclaimed) reverb snobbery was born out of this place of solid guitar players and huge, heavenly sounds. In wanting to produce a sound that was on par with "the big blue one" without all the bells and whistles, The Revelation was born.
Junior continues to push the envelope with his engineering to create amazing, budget-friendly pedals specially voiced and developed for today's worship musicians.
Junior and his family live in Kansas City, MO. When he's not making pedals, he's smoking his FAMOUS brisket.
