A number of notable guitarists have teamed up with JAM Pedals‘ new charity initiative, entitled Lending A Hand. Proceeds from the movement go towards supporting music professionals impacted by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Contributing guitarists include Nels Cline, Graham Coxon, Bill Frisell, Julian Lage, Sean Ono Lennon, Steve Lukather, J Mascis, Lee Ranaldo, Nile Rodgers, Richie Sambora, Neal Schon, John Scofield, Alex Skolnick, Andy Timmons and David Torn.
JAM Pedals has created 10 pedals per contributor, totalling 150 units. Each is signed, and decked out in a shiny gold finish. The pedals will go towards the 10 people who make the biggest donations in each respective artist’s category before 12 July. T-shirts related to the initiative are also being sold to generate some more donations for the charities, which are the MusiCares relief Fund, the Jazz Coalition, the Jazz Foundation, New Music USA, Crew Nation and Northern Greece Musician.
