Description

Great guitar tones from Dan & Mick: sound better, play more!

Episode Date
Pedal Jams: Beetronics, TateFX, Old Blood Noise, Crazy Tube Circuits
29:38

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/wP8seWN7Uys

This is Pedal Jams where we feature four pedals that are new (to us anyway).
Our agenda is purely to plug them in, see what cool sounds and features we find, and combine them in whatever way inspires. We then jam over a backing for some context.

Enjoy the video…

Synth Sounds For Guitar – That Pedal Show
01:04:24

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/RpgAOPPHjTg

In this video we discuss synth sounds for guitar… but not in the MIDI-pickup-to-trigger-samples sense. Nope, here we’re talking about waveforms, oscillators, filters, modulation, manipulation and all that. The pedal everybody is talking about (in 2019) is the Meris Enzo, and for good measure we add the new SY-1 from Boss – the first Compact sized pedal to offer synthesis with no MIDI pickup required. Plus some others. 

Join us as we stumble through some sounds, ask and answer questions and hopefully trigger some creative ideas and possibilities for your own music journey. This is guitar, Jim, but maybe not as you know it.
Enjoy the episode!

What About Gretsch Guitars?
49:27

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/D9Qpna-bk9Q

In this episode we consider a slice of rock’n’roll history that deserves a little more attention from most of us. Dan and I are fans of Gretsch as much for the stunning, evocative aesthetics as the unique, genre-defining tones. Gretsch guitars were, are and always will be entirely their own thing.
Now, neither of us are connoisseurs by any means and, let’s be honest, our historical knowledge on the brand is shaky at best. Nevertheless with great thanks to our friend Adam Bowden-Smith at Gretsch who loaned us three of these lovely specimens, we take a gentle stroll through a handful of key Gretsch tonal touchpoints, with some more familiar (to us) classics on hand for context.
It’s far from a history lesson and for sure there are countless other great Gretsches still to discover… but let’s just dive in and see what happens. As always, the questions thrown up here will make a great follow-up show in due course. It’s the TPS way after all.
Please do check the Gretsch website to double check some of our doubtless shonky info. To whit…

At around 22 mins wish, I say Chet Atkins signed The Everly Brothers. He didn’t, sorry. They weren’t on RCA Victor. He did however help them get their deal at Warner Brothers. So I was a little tiny bit sorta kinda right. He was a mentor to them. He did sign Dolly though. Woah.

Gain Pedals In Parallel – That Pedal Show
55:29

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/7ACGOxWspeA

In this episode we explore the useful and inspiring possibilities offered by parallel gain staging… among various other tangential observances. Most of us are familiar with series signal chains because that’s what happens when you connect any two pedals together: one flows into the other. Parallel is where the signal is split before two effects, then hits them separately and is mixed back together again afterwards. You might think that combining two pedals would produce the same results however you connect them. Well, not so, as we discover.

For anyone asking how to combine two pedals in parallel and what you might need to do so…
The Wetter Box by TheGigRig can do this. We’re not sure about other stuff, but whatever you choose, you need to be able to split the signal before the two devices you want to mix in parallel… then mix them together again afterwards.

Enjoy the episode!

Union T&T, TC Hall Of Fame 2x4, Fender MTG, Diamond Vibrato
40:05

This is the audio from our video here:

This is Dan’N’Mick’s Pick’N’Mix where we feature four pedals that are new (to us anyway). 

Our agenda is purely to plug them in, see what cool sounds and features we find, and combine them in whatever way inspires. That’s it! Enjoy…

PLEASE NOTE: We recently changed the PnM format to include jamming/backing tracks. This one was filmed before that… and then got delayed because TC delayed the release of the Flashback 2 x 4. So that’s why there’s no backing track and/or jamming. All future PnMs will have backing tracks. And we’re renaming them Pedal Jams.

Another bit of interesting info is that this was the day that we decided we didn’t need two mics on the cabs any more. New Sontronics Delta 2 ribbon mics arrived. We used them and took the Neumanns out of the mix. We had the Neumanns there before to balance out whatever other mics we were using. The Delta 2s sound great on their own.

Meantime, enjoy the episode!

Solo Tones: Thoughts On Gain, EQ & Audibility - That Pedal Show
01:03:17

This is the audio from our vide here: 

In this episode we stumble around a general discussion on being heard when playing solos. A friend of Dan’s had asked him what he needed to think about tonally when starting to play guitar solos: it sparked an idea for a show.

Many of the concepts we touch on here have been covered in previous episodes, but they’re always worth a re-look for the already-initiated and close to invaluable for anyone new to the subject. Gain, EQ, volume… and a bit on delay, rounded up with five tips for better solo tones.
Enjoy the episode!

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/xWx9yqWmV5o

In this episode we take our first long look at – and listen to – the new-for-2019 Boss Waza Tube Amp Expander, next to the already established Universal Audio OX Amp Top Box.
Both are designed to offer much increased functionality and low-volume usability/direct recording potential for your existing valve amplifier. As we discuss, however, while they’re ostensibly pitched head-to-head there are nonetheless some significant differences that may make your decision much easier, should you be in the market for such a beast.
No, it’s not a straight A/B comparison using exactly the same amps and guitars – as we said they do different things – it’s more of a general overview of their main functions and features and associated tagentalities and observationalisations.
We start by hearing the straight attenuation capabilities before heading for the direct sounds.

Enjoy the episode!

10 Tone Ideas For Rhythm Guitar
48:51

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/lEsnMNK6F68

Are you struggling for somewhere to sit in the mix? Are you and the other guitar player clashing sonically and/or harmonically? If so, young Daniel and I offer up these 10 ideas for you try when playing ‘rhythm’ guitar.
As we have opined many times, ‘rhythm’ guitar is a bit of a catch-all term. To us they're just parts in songs, nevertheless this show isn’t about how to nail your Nile Rodgers funk chops, or achieve seamless synchronicity like Malcolm and Angus. Moreover it’s about some tonal suggestions that will bring interest and separation to parts in a song. We talk about volume, EQ, modulation and delay for the most part, to act as springboards for your own perfect dive into the music. Wow, that was cheesy.

If you like backing track in this episode you can buy it at That Pedal Show Store.

Enjoy the episode!

Dan's Pedalboard 2019 – That Pedal Show
01:08:11

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/KypcmoEpiw0

Today we document Dan’s monster pedalboard build for 2019. It’s been in the works for some time and has changed much along the way… and will continue to change, such is the nature of what we do. It's a cornucopia of gain stacking textures, enhanced with plenty of delay, reverb and modulations. Ostensibly wet-dry, it’s actually dual mono wet - different delays and mods coming out of each side.

Please check out our other board building vids if you want more on the actual build process:

Echo Fix & Space Echo – That Pedal Show
53:47

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/a89AIAk6Vmw

 

In this episode Dan and I take a listen to the new-for-2019 Echo Fix EF-X2. It’s a modern take on Roland’s seminal RE-201 Space Echo, that uses real tape for the echo/delay effects. We also include some common modern delay pedals, both tape simulation and analog delays, to get an idea of how things compare. What do we think?

Epic Vintage Guitars At ATB – That Pedal Show
01:52:47

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/GpJJkSBP-YQ

 

They say “never start with an apology”, so we won’t. Not everyone loves vintage guitars – in fact many people think it’s all a load of pish. Dan and I are not such people and so we took this opportunity to visit ATB Guitars in Cheltenham, UK and fill our boots with an afternoon of complete and utter kids-in-a-sweetshop indulgence. 

There is no real point to this video, other than to remind ourselves that it’s only this very moment that ever matters; simply to do and to experience.

MASSIVE thanks to Mike and David at ATB for making us so welcome and letting us have the run of the store! https://www.atbguitars.com/ Instagram @atbguitars

Questions arising…
Q: Are vintage guitars really ‘better’?
A: No. Modern guitars aren’t better either.

Q: You couldn’t tell in a blind test though, could you?
A: Maybe, but if your brain is trying to tell, you’re not doing anything relating to actual music.

Q: That’s every guitar gear video ever, isn’t it?
A: Touché. Probably! The bit after the video in the venue or studio is

Q: Did Mick buy that Strat?
A: Not today. But one day when the day is right I will.

Q: Why didn’t you play the //insert any guitar we didn’t play here//?
A: We chose the ones that interested us the most.

We’ll answer everything else we can in Monday’s VCQ.

Enjoy the episode!

Chris Buck Pedalboard Build - That Pedal Show
01:01:14

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/fNkdVZ2w3zU

In this episode we welcome the fantabulous Sir Christopher Of Buckshire back to TPS Manor. 

Chris is the Buck in Buck & Evans, about which you can discover more on ye olde Interwebs: http://www.buckandevans.com/

Chris visited us back in August 2018 where we made this video: https://youtu.be/T-hKSOz-VBw and in this visit he returns to update his pedalboard with a full G2-based system. Dan and Chris discuss the layout and other requirements before cracking on with the build. We then plug it in and have a good listen… of course.

Massive thanks to Chris for his time and always-excellent hangs!

Enjoy the episode!

•Note about Riff City Guitar
It was with a heavy heart that Dan and I heard that Riff City was closing as of July 2019. This video was shot and edited before that which doesn’t really matter… what does matter is that we want to thank Joe and everyone there for their support and friendship over the first years of TPS. We wish everyone involved with Riff City the vey best for the future – for absolutely sure when one door closes another one inevitably opens. Our very best to you Joe and team!

Tone Caps, Bright Caps, Input Impedance & Other Nerding With Simon Jarrett – That Pedal Show
01:13:29

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/pmUq8uK_AL8

Nerd warning! This show is probably not for first-time viewers, nor anyone looking for quick and simple answers. This stuff is deep, fundamental… and yet all grounded (pun entirely intended) in basic electronics!

We are delighted to once again welcome Simon Jarrett to the studio. Simon is the man behind Kingsley Amplifiers (and pedals), based in Maple Ridge, Canada.
Dan and I have been consistently blown away with Kingsley’s range of pedals and preamps, partly because of their meticulous design and build quality and partly because they are imbued with Simon’s own personal musical connection with tremendous guitar tone.
We attempt to unravel some of that in this show, talking about guitar electronics basics such as input impedance, capacitance in guitar controls (low pass filter) and amp/pedal input stages (coupling capacitor/high pass filter), gain stage biasing and all those interrelated factors that have a fundamental effect on your guitar sound… long before you get into to worrying about which of the 487 Tube Screamer clones to buy.
It will be well over the heads of anyone looking for quick fixes or simple answers and advice… but absolutely fascinating for anyone who has been playing and tweaking for years and not quite connecting the dots of what’s actually happening (like me, Mick here).
Massive thanks to Simon and his wife Christine for taking time out of their vacation to spend time nerding at That Pedal Show.

Enjoy the episode. If you dare!

John Smith Visits That Pedal Show
37:48

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/8-UnSRXlG8I

Well this was a turn up for the books. Blinking once again into the dawn light of our own ignorance, Dan and I are awakened to the immense talents of Mr John Smith. We have Simon to thank – he and John are friends – for this most auspicious and fortuitous happening.

John’s unique blend of British folk and Americana hits the sweetest of spots on our radar. A fingerstyle master, slide supremo, accomplished songwriter and utterly compelling vocalist, we feel privileged to welcome him to Schwangri-La where we get to hang out, talk guitars, build a board and get treated to our own performance of three songs. It’s a day we’ll never forget… at least until the next time he comes back, which he surely must!

Yes, we know the show was about two hours shorter than it should have been. Children needed to be collected, flights caught and all that life stuff. The important thing was that we got the board built for his tour. He WILL be back!

I’d just like to add – Mick here – all those tracks were first takes, straight out of the gate. Colour us impressed, deeply moved and forever inspired!

For everything John, please head to https://www.johnsmithjohnsmith.com/

The tracks he plays are:
• 'Joanna' (from the album Headlong, 2017)
• 'Winter' (from the album The Fox And The Monk, 2006/2010)
• 'Hares On The Mountain' (from the album Hummingbird, 2018)

Enjoy the episode!

11 Cool Ways To Use A Compressor Pedal – That Pedal Show
01:14:00

This is the audio of our video here: https://youtu.be/hlrvMG9X8KU

In this episode we deliver on a clickbaity title in only the way That Pedal Show can – well over an hour of something somebody half our age could do in about 10 minutes with loads of jump cuts AND boundless enthusiasm. Not here sunshine…

Nevertheless, these are 11 ideas for using a compressor pedal, taking in some general compressor knowledge along the way as well as hearing a bunch of different compressor types. Somewhat surprisingly there is slide, bass and enough funk to sink a modest lilo. Some come on baby, let’s squash…

Mark Lettieri Visits That Pedal Show
01:00:08

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/ui2LVpvaVmU

In this episode we are delighted to welcome the wonderful Mark Lettieri to the show! Mark is highly loved and respected musician based in Fort Worth, Texas, who has built a stellar reputation via his work in Snarky Puppy, Fearless Flyers and his own solo work. 

We met Mark back in January at the NAMM show and fixed a plan for him to drop into the TPS studio on his next trip to Europe. Thusly, he stepped off a plane from Dallas and into a car to Somerset!
We talk a little bit about Mark’s background in music, his uncanny ability for groove and rhythm and of course the pedalboard he flies with. Plus a little cameo from Joey Landreth at the end - yep he was here that day too. Quite the day!

For everything Mark Lettieri including his current tour dates, please check out: https://www.marklettieri.com/
Also check out Snarky Puppy: https://snarkypuppy.com/

Enjoy the episode!

Joey Landreth Board & Tones 2019
01:17:08

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/6pSE-Eyd2sY

In this episode we are delighted to welcome back Joey Landreth – songwriter supreme, guitarist extraordinaire and human being of tremendous awesomeness. Joey first appeared on the show back in February 2017 – https://youtu.be/dSreFRxL2go – when we were introduced to his unique and utterly compelling style. He returned later that year to blow our minds with a show on harmonic tremolo – https://youtu.be/FDRHDy9GI-M – and again in August 2018 with the wonderful Kirk Fletcher – https://youtu.be/WspUxDSoDu0
Why do we keep inviting Joey back? Simples: we are beyond proud to call him our friend and we love hanging out. We also think his insight, musicianship and all-round Canadianness is a good thing for the world, so we want to share it as much as possible.
In this show, Joey had just finished the European leg of his Hindsight tour, in support of his 2019 album release, Hindsight. Please go and buy it somewhere and/or go see him live!
For more on Joey, including upcoming tour dates please visit his site http://www.joeylandreth.com/
Enjoy the episode. And all the cape capers.

How Does DC Voltage Affect Pedal Sound? That Pedal Show
01:02:09

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/NxH9jK3Ujgk

In this episode we dig into the world of DC voltage and what it means for pedal operation and sound. Let’s begin with a warning and please forgive the upper case.

PLEASE ONLY USE THE VOLTAGE STATED EXPLICITLY IN THE PEDAL MANUAL AND NOTHING ELSE!

This is because most pedals are designed to run on a specific voltage: usually 9V DC for most stompboxes. However, some pedals are designed to work on varying voltages, usually between 9 and 18 volts and sometimes up to 24. It will say so in the pedal manual or on the manufacturer website. If i doesn’t, don’t do it. Dead pedals are often smelly and always useless for everything except throwing at bandmates for playing the wrong parts. (DUCK!)
Moving on, it is also possible to starve a pedal of voltage until it gets to the point where it simply won’t work. This is a key characteristic of certain fuzz sounds. So we get into all that in the video and some of the side issues and discussions.
Please enjoy the show…

Dave Gregory: 12 Strings, XTC & More!
01:31:52

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/EYVgr7NCYEY

In this episode we are delighted to welcome Dave Gregory to the TPS studio. Dave has garnered much praise and respect for his work in British rock band XTC from 1979 to the late 1990s. Melodic, creative and always moving forwards, Dave’s playing inspired a whole generation of guitarists, not least a young and eager Australian with long, flowing blonde hair and a penchant for elaborate inversions. Yes, in a tale of ingenuity and daring, the Australian dreamt of leaving the endless sunshine, free-flowing beer and barbys so that he might be nearer to his hero. In Swindon.

10,000 miles and much alopecia later the Australian tracked down Gregory in Wiltshire and persuaded him to join his band, Tin Spirits, whereupon the fairytale was complete. He even asked him to be a guest on his YouTube channel along with a trio of Rickenbacker 12-strings, a Strat and an ES-335.

 

Well that’s one reading of it anyway. Enjoy the show!

What's The Point Of Always-On Pedals? That Pedal Show
01:12:59

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/m49jK-49BFA

In this episode we discuss the concept of ‘Always-On’ pedals with some practical examples of how you might use them. Lots of people use a particular overdrive or preamp; perhaps a compressor or a slapback echo as their always-on pedal. We propose that they fall into four basic categories that may be functional, tonal or both. 1. Buffers; 2: Tone/EQ shaping; 3: Gain and dynamics; 4:A specific effect, eg reverb, delay etc.
Clearly you can use any pedal as an always-on pedal, but here were are attempting to narrow the discussion a little bit in our area of all-round rock, blues and roots playing, and offer some useful ways to proceed if you’re new to this train of thought.
No doubt there will be plenty of questions arising – Ladbrokes has great odds on a million questions about buffers again. We’ll address it in Monday’s VCQ. But if you’re confused just remeber three things: 1. Buffers give you noticeable high-end and presence back if your signal chain is suffering from capacitance-induced dullness. 2.… Make most vintage overdrives and fuzzes sound rubbish when placed before them. 3. If you use loads of true-bypass pedals chained together and no loop switcher, you might benefit from one… Try it before and after your overdrives. We prefer them after.
And, 'What about EQ pedals? Surely they are a prime example of an always-on pedal?' Yes. We talk about EQ, but not necessarily in the context of a specific EQ pedal.
Anyway, enjoy the show…

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/7GMjXX6ZlO4

 

This is Dan’N’Mick’s Pick’N’Mix where we feature four pedals that are new (to us anyway).
Our agenda is purely to plug them in, see what cool sounds and features we find, and combine them in whatever way inspires. That’s it! Enjoy…

How To Choose The 'Right' Overdrive Pedal – That Pedal Show
01:17:09

This is the audio for our video here: https://youtu.be/pMpJuFJBTsQ

Okay, despite the slightly click-baity title, this really is not a video for beginners. Or at least it’s not a video for anyone looking for quick and easy answers because we’ve spent decades and umpteen thousands of pounds finding out that there really is no simple answer to the question, ‘What overdrive pedal should I buy?’

However, we do have a better question for you that will be infinitely more helpful: ‘What do I want an overdrive pedal to do?’ We propose in this video that there are four common answers to that question and as such, help you significantly narrow down your OD pedal choices.

But we haven’t included //insert every pedal in the world here//. No. This video is about concepts and understanding – gain structure, headroom, dynamics, the guitar-pedal-amp ecosystem because, well, head back to the first paragraph.

TLDR? TLDW? We understand, but just know this: an hour and 17 watching this video, and a few others on our channel will save you years of getting it ‘wrong’, we promise.

Enjoy. If you dare…

Thoughts For Two Guitars In A Band – That Pedal Show
01:08:55

This is the audio for our video here: https://youtu.be/YSf3m9siUwo

In this episode we take a very gentle stroll through some of the issues you might face when there are two guitars in the band. Clearly this is an almost endless topic so we’re starting with the really basic stuff.
We’ve all been there with volume struggles, tones not working together, poor definition of parts… and worse than all of that: not knowing what to do about it. So Dan and I talk through some ideas that may help before indulging in some petit jammagé at the end. Where the gremlins begin…

SORRY ABOUT THE DEAD CAMERAS
We had a massive whoopsie-daisy in this episode with cameras. Particularly annoying as we are actually doing something different and no doubt you’ll assume there’s some kind of foul play going on. It's not the case, we just lost media from two cards. Arrrrggggg!!!!
Before the cameras die, Mick’s guitar is panned slightly left; Dan’s slightly right.
During the jams however you’ll hear Mick right and Dan left because that makes more sense when you’re looking at our pedalboards. We didn't edit the jams at all so they are a bit meandering. We left it all in as the sounds are interesting even if the playing isn't ha!

HOW DID YOU MAKE THE BACKING TRACKS?
I used the Drummer in Apple Logic to create some grooves. Then I called up the loop library in and simply dragged in some bass parts. During the filming I was playing it from my laptop over our PA speakers, enabling Dan and I to jam over. I then simply put the tracks underneath the show audio, lined it up, and did a super basic mix. That’s it.

Enjoy the episode, we hope it helps spark some ideas and inspiration to play with other humans! (Or machines, ahem).

Mick's Vlog – New Saddles & Deeper Thoughts
42:02

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/zGN3WzUe7u0

IF YOU WANT TO JUST HEAR THE SOUNDS, SKIP TO 23:05

Mick here – hello – and this is a vlog in a series about mods that are happening to my favourite guitar, ‘Blue’, a common-or-garden American Vintage ’62 Stratocaster from around 2000.

I replaced the bridge with a Callaham unit a few months back – https://youtu.be/c8VrLWnW8Pk – and have since realised that while I love the vibrato action and stability, also the increased presence and direct nature of the tone, it might have gone a step or two too far and be a little //too// forthright – maybe even brittle – for my personal tastes. (Remember that every Strat is different and everyone’s tastes are different as are our playing styles.)

So like the fervent ferret chasing down the hole for the rabbit that has probably long since scarpered, I’m off down there asking if one set of bent steel saddles could possibly sound different from the next set. Well guess what: they do!

Admission: this isn’t really a 42-minute video about saddles at all.

WHAT AMPS & PEDALS DO I USE IN THIS VIDEO?
Look at the lights on the G2 switcher: if two lights are illuminated next to the switch, the pedal is on.
• KingTone The Duellist
• Klon Centaur
• Analog Man ARDX20 Delay
• Two-Rock Classic Reverb Signature 100/50
• Two-Rock Bloomfield Drive 40/20
• Two-Rock 212 cabinets with TR 1265B speakers

With the greatest of respect and heartfelt thanks for ALL your comments, I’ll answer some probable topics arising below, to save having to do it multiple times in the comments.

Q: Have you tried //insert saddle name here//? I really love them and they work great on my Strat!
A: Probably, but the only ones I’ve ever truly liked are the bent steel ones.

Q: Have you every tried a Suhr/Anderson/Danocaster/SVL etc? They’re great!
A: All of them. I spent almost 20 years as a journalist on probably the world’s best guitar magazines. But at this point in my life, the aesthetic, historical, musical and cultural value of a genuine Fender Stratocaster is more important to me. Which is why I’m saving up for an old one. ALL guitars are individual and if I pick up The Magic Guitar one day, it might not matter what it says on the peghead. Maybe.

Q: But surely the frikkin saddles can’t make //that// much difference? Just play the damn guitar!
A: You’re right in any sort of sensible context. However this isn’t sensible and everything does make a difference; everything matters physically… moreover, psychologically. And if you have actual control over your brain, you’re doing better than about 98 per cent of the rest of the human race.

Q: Can’t you just turn the treble and presence up or down?
A: Sure. But it’s more than that. The guitar’s hardware makes a fundamental difference to how it resonates; it’s not purely about EQ. I wish I had better means to describe it. It’s a physical connection as much as a tonal response.

Q: No audience will ever discern this you idiot.
A: Yeah, I know. But they know when you give an inspired performance and that is related directly to being truly connected with your sound. No middle man.

Q: Your depression revelation is alarming. Please don’t talk about this crap in guitar videos.
A: Watch the regular show. We try to keep that about guitar stuff, mostly. But these are our vlogs and sometimes we’ll talk if we want to. It might actually be necessary for our wellbeing. ps. It’s my vlog.

Q: What about the pickup change?! Come on man!
A: Hopefully by the end of May. I need some days to get it done!

11 Ways To Use Modulation – That Pedal Show
01:09:26

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/CrtRZq49oNw

In this episode we take a look at the principle modulation effects (well, most of ‘em) offering up some tips and advice on how you might use them.
So often the people will run, screaming toward us, arms aloft fair pleading, “Pray ’elp me, Dan and Mick, for I desire to use wobbly effects but every time I do it sounds like blancmange in me lug’oles. How may I remedy this cursed affliction?”
And we propose, “Fear not ye auditorially anxious. For we possess the learnings to cure your complexion with these 11 Great Ways To Use Modulation. Heed ye these teachings and carry forth the sonic delights within to whomsoever shall grant ye audience. Go forth and modulate!”
Or something.

This is Dan’N’Mick’s Pick’N’Mix where we feature four pedals that are new (to us anyway).
Our agenda is purely to plug them in, see what cool sounds and features we find, and combine them in whatever way inspires. That’s it! Enjoy…

Tips For Your First Pedalboard
01:09:16

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/y_Ymybn-8jA

In this episode we discuss and demonstrate the things you need to think about when putting together your first pedalboard. It’s the really basic stuff like choice of board, potential layout, fixing pedals to the board, power, cabling and so on. We try to keep it as entry-level as possible, but if you want something more involved, check out our big board build videos!

Our First 24 Minutes With A Fender Jazzmaster
23:22

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/WqvQNE4lOvs

 

In this episode we flop like new-born giraffe from the uterus of ‘normal’ guitars onto the unforgiving savannah of the Fender Jazzmaster. Watch in awe as we struggle to our feet, wide-eyed at the new horizon before us and stagger instinctively towards safety and nourishment.
Will we get eaten by lions or survive to master the jangly jazzer? One thing is for sure: Dano, I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.

Big thanks to Coda Music of Stevenage for selling us the beast and ensuring its safe passage and highly satisfying arrival.
Enjoy!

Volume Pedal Fundamentals – That Pedal Show
50:54

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/TF-W7JIaPHE

In this episode we explore the basics of using a volume pedal. Now you might think it’s a simple matter of varying your volume from quiet to loud… but as we find out, the specifical placementation of the volume pedal in your signal chain can have radically differentialising effectalisations on the resultifying tones emanating forth from your electronical guitar device, amplficator equipments and effectatious pedallion combinations.
Sothusthreforely we commence by observifacting three common placementisations for the volume pedal, before installising one in the effects loop of the amplifier and finishing with a tremendacious creativising idea from young Daniel Steinhardt of Australia.
Enjoybles!

Dan & Mick Build A Couple Of Tube Amps!
01:08:05

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/rBV4FYCPoIY

In this episode we board the TPS charabanc and head north, following tales of a near-hermit-like being, who, in return for crossing his palm with silver, would educate us in ye olde ways of building tube amps. Or valves if you’re British.
Thusly, we crossed river and ravine before happening on the opening of a great cave, strewn with the carcasses of dead amps the souls of those who had abandoned them. Uttering the magic words, we were granted entry and following a soldering initiation test, festooned with the jewels of the hermit’s brain. Or if you’d prefer…

Chris Fantana of Rift Amps walks us through building a couple of Fender 5E3 Deluxe clones.
We then return to Schwangri-La and plug ‘em in. Simple as that!

A word on cabs and speakers. Chris has a cabinet supplier who builds and covers the cabs, so we don’t get into that in this video - it’s a step too far for a single day! The choice of tweed or Tolex is purely cosmetic - we thought we’d have one of both.
The speakers themselves are WGS G12Q. We might get into trying different things as time goes on…

Danish Pete Pedalboard Build – That Pedal Show
01:04:44

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/p3DQaN7yzos

In today’s episode Dan puts together a pedalboard for our wonderful friend and all-round awesome geezer, Peter Honoré. For anyone who doesn’t know, Danish Pete is a professional guitarist whose day job is over at Andertons TV on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/user/AndertonsMusic

A master of taste and touch in his playing, Pete requires a relatively simple but versatile board based around the Schmidt Array SA-450 platform. Dan and Pete talk through the pedal choices before assembling it all in terms of layout, power and audio.
Apologies in advance for the lengthy section on the H9 and MIDI. Why anyone subjects themselves to this remains a total mystery to me – Mick here – but hey, some of you krayzee kids just love this stuff.
Apologies also for the highly average production today. No Simon = me trying to remember how the cameras work and forgetting to turn lights on, etc. Ha!
Enjoy the video!

RAT Distortion & RAT Alikes
01:01:27

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/ub9KjynPa6Y

In this episode we get down and dirty with arguably the king of classic distortion devices: the not-so humble ProCo Rat. In equal parts loved, despised, revered and feared, its contribution to music over the past 40 years is immeasurable. Dan has always been a fan, me less so, but this episode has definitely made me rethink everything I thought I knew about the raucous rodent!
We run through a bunch of Rat and Rat-alikes and ask most of the obvious questions. It begs a follow-up episode featuring more of the more contemporary takes on the circuit, but as ever we can’t do every pedal in one episode. Enjoy!

Spring Reverb – That Pedal Show
01:03:10

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/ljv0hymTx60

In this video we drip slowly into the tank of spring reverb. Among the oldest effects anywhere – not least for guitar – a classic spring reverb uses a physical tank, in which sit a number of real springs with an input transducer at one end and an output transducer at the other. Audio goes in, excites the springs, and the resultant sound is swathed in ambience. We love it.

However, not all amps have spring reverb – or any reverb at all all for that matter– so what options exist for you to add to your rig? Thus we compare three genuine spring-equipped outboard units with some more compact digital takes on the spring reverb sound. Let’s get washy, baby…

A note on the Anasounds tanks. If you’re at all confused which one you’re hearing, you can see the red and white cables plugged in to the tank being used at the top of the screen.

We’d also like to apologise for the aural confusion caused by talking over the reverb trails. One day before the end of time, Dan will learn that he has to let the reverb die before talking. Imagine the thing that annoys you the most. Then times that by 100. Danish Pete says he has a solution… but they don’t use room mics. I’ll stop moaning now, but I’m not answering any comments on it because I’m tired to almost-death of explaining it over and over again. The voice mics are gained waaaaaay louder than the amp mics, so the amps are waaaaaay louder through the voice mics than through the amp mics. You bring the voice mics up because Dan starts talking, and then the sound of the reverb is unrealistically loud, negating the point of doing a reverb demo because you can't hear the trails properly. I’m going for a valium and lie-down. Mick here.

Big Vs Mini Pedals – That Pedal Show
01:03:04

This is the audio to our video here: https://youtu.be/0RCQTEvj7P4

In this episode we take a first step into a question that gets asked all the time. Well, a couple questions actually: what’s all the fuss about mini pedals, and are they as good as the big versions?

So in this, erm, not exactly rigorously scientific examination, we schwang through some sounds courtesy of five pairs of pedals in regular and small formats to hear what we think.
We will revisit this using some other kinds of pedals in the future, and maybe even do a mini pedals challenge. In the meantime, enjoy this episode!

Strymon Volante Has Landed – That Pedal Show
01:15:36

 

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/tNHZhIWPSBU

In this video we welcome perhaps the most anticipated pedal of 2019: the Strymon Volante. Strymon of course has enjoyed phenomenal success with its delay pedals to date, particularly the genre-defining TimeLine and much-loved El Capistan.
The Volante adds a whole new voice to Strymon’s echo choir, namely the vintage, multi-head drum echo sound made famous by the Binson Echorec. It also does multi-head tape and studio tape delays too. Matters arising…
• Does it sound like those old units? We have a couple for a quick comparison.
• What about the best of the modern, pedal format versions of those effects? We pick two for comparison.
• Should I replace my TimeLine or El Capistan?
• And what else does it do?

Please note: There have been many, many different kinds of tape and drum echoes over the years, and they pretty much all sound different, not least with the passage of time / different states of repair etc etc etc. With that in mind, we picked two such beasts that we had at our disposal, so please don’t be posting comments moaning about why we didn’t compare it with this, that or the other. Please.

We hope you enjoy this episode…

Transistor & Valve Amps Wet Dry: Quilter & BluGuitar
58:11

This is the audio from our YouTube video here:https://youtu.be/2Yy7sPVyVUs

Dan and I are both dyed-in-the-wool valve amp fans – unashamedly and unapologetically so, based on decades of their use and abuse. In this show however, we follow last week’s realisation (for us at least) that transistor amps really have moved forwards in recent years. There comes a time in every tube-amp-fan’s life when they need to listen to the best of the latest solid-state amps to hear what’s changed… Watch last week’s episode here: https://youtu.be/_QZOeXHB8AQ

Here we move along a little bit, pairing a Quilter 101 Reverb and BluGuitar Amp 1 with a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe and head deeper into wet-dry territory on the end of Mick’s pedalboard. No real agenda, no science, just the same question we have all the time: can these sounds offer the requisite inspiration to really play?

The signal routing of Mick’s board is as follows, top to bottom (specific pedal links further below)

Wah wah (outside of G2)
G2 loop 1: Analog Man Sun Face Fuzz
G2 loop 2: Fulltone Octafuzz
G2 loop 3: J Rockett The Dude OD
G2 loop 4: Analog Man / Maxon OD9
G2 loop 5: Klon Centaur
G2 loop 6: Wet/dry split to GigRig Humdinger. Main out to DRY amp. Buffered out to…
Also G2 loop 6: Catalinbread Belle Epoch Deluxe Delay
G2 loop 7: Boss DC-2w Dimension C
G2 loop 8: Analog Man ARDX 20 delay
G2 loop 9: Supro Tremolo
G2 loop 10: Neo Instruments Mini Vent II (rotary speaker)
G2 output 1 to wet amp

Loop 6 stays on all the time so the dry amp is always on. The Belle Epoch Deluxe is also always on to cure a phase reversal problem when you switch it on and off. The delay level is controlled with the Dunlop Mini Volume X pedal to the left of G2.

The little green box with the LCD readout is the Amazeo controller for the Analog Man delay. It uses control voltages to create modulation and offer tap tempo.

Enjoy!

Reappraising Modern Transistor Amps #1
01:16:38

This is the audio from our YouTube video here:https://youtu.be/_QZOeXHB8AQ

In this video we revisit a contentious subject for TPS: transistor amps. Dan and I have never been fans, based on those we’ve owned and played to date. Before you accuse us of snobbery, it's a matter of pure personal opinion – clearly, loads of people LOVE them. 

However, we’ve played a few things recently that have perked up the ears. Roland’s JC-40, the new Boss Nextone amps and also the Amp1 Mercury Edition by Thomas Blug in particular. So in this episode we compare the Nextone with an AC15 and a Hot Rod Deluxe, as well as having a listen to the Amp 1 with Thomas. (For the record The Amp1 uses a Nanotube in conjunction with the class D output stage, but it’s nothing like a traditional valve amp. At all.)
In part 2 (next Friday), we’ll add a Quilter 101 Reverb and more Blug Amp 1 and head into wet-dry territory.
We hope we can move the debate along. Just as there are valve amps we like a lot and not so much, so there are transistor amps likewise. We’d like to add a couple of our faves to the TPS arsenal and use them alongside everything else.

I will answer this here, so I don’t have to do it 18 thousand times in the comments (Mick here)…
Q: Why didn’t we explore the drive sounds in Nextone or Amp1?
A: Dan and I use cleaner, higher headroom amps for our rigs/boards/TPS in general, and we’re looking at the Boss and BluGuitar products in that context.

Enjoy!

Wet-Dry & Wet-Dry-Wet Setups Explained – That Pedal Show
01:21:04

This is the audio from our YouTube video here: https://youtu.be/bSz7GrRdHc0

Regular viewers will know that Dan and I are big fans of the wet-dry rig. According to our definition at least, that means using two amplifiers where one of them gets signal from ALL of your pedals including reverbs and delays (wet), while the other gets only the drives (dry). And maybe compression. And maybe modulation depending on how you like it.

It’s a very simple concept… until you get into the nuts and bolts of signal routing, signal splits, phase and isolation, whereupon the confusion can come along all too quickly.

So this video attempts to break all of that down and – with the help of a diagram or two - we hope to demystify things.

Once we’ve talked about wet-dry, we add a third amp for wet-dry-wet. All the principles are the same, so it shouldn’t be too much of a brain stretch. Finally you have a use for those unloved 'other' amps you have kicking around. Or a great excuse to buy one or two more. :0) Enjoy!

Uni-Vibe Sounds & Questions
01:02:10

This is the audio from our YouTube video of 11 Jan 2019. https://youtu.be/Te97X_WBRyQ

 

In this episode Dan and I ask and answer some common questions about classic Vibe style pedals. The original Uni-Vibe pedal first appeared in 1968, introduced by Japanese company Shin-ei and released in the US by Univox, erm, according to Wikipedia. The name Uni-Vibe is now a trademark of Dunlop Manufacturing Inc.

The Uni-Vibe sound was immortalised into rock history by Jimi Hendrix and Robin Trower among others and has since become a staple of many pedalboards. It’s a four-stage phaser that uses light dependent resistors around a bulb to creates a unique modulation effect that's kinda part phaser, kinda part chorus and definitely all magic.
Join us as we dial in a bunch of sounds and mess with settings and pedalboard position to help you on you quest for the perfect vibe tone. Let’s pulse and throb baby…

Using Pedals & Loops With Gainy Amps – That Pedal Show
01:01:20

This is the audio from our YouTube video here: https://youtu.be/8LW_v-U5QV0

In this episode we meander through what seems to be a huge point of discussion with a lot of people: using pedals with overdriven amps. As regular viewers will know, Dan and I tend to use cleaner / higher headroom amps for the basis on which to stack different gain sounds from pedals. However, lots of people really like the sound of an overdriven amp… which is where the ‘problems’ really start when adding pedals.
We run through comparisons of using common gain pedal types into contrasting amps: one clean/high headroom and one heavily overdriven to try to shed some light on the issues you may be having. And of course the discussion would not be complete without discussing delay and reverb into either the front of the amp, or the loop.
As always, there really are no answers, just better questions, and what we hope to arm you with here is simply a better understanding of the various gain stacking relationships you will encounter when using pedals with amps.

If you’re at any point confused which amp you’re hearing: Amp 1 lit on G2 means it’s the Hiwatt. Amp 2 lit means it’s the Victory. Enjoy!

10 Great Ways To Use Your Delay Pedals
52:10

This is the audio from our YouTube video here: https://youtu.be/Ol1Z6OF6N-U

We get asked lots of questions about delay pedals and how to use them creatively, so in this video we show you 10 cool things you can do with… yep… delay pedals.

It’s important to note that not all delay pedals will do all of these things. For example, Thing 5 – Changing The Sound Of Repeats –requires a pedal that has the ability to do that. Many modern multifunction / programmable delays from the likes of Strymon, Boss and so on have these features, as of course do the examples we use in the video. If nothing else, it might serve as a guide to what you might actually need or not need when choosing a new delay pedal because heaven knows that are so many on the market!
We do not cover stereo delays in this video - it’s a much less common application for most people and requires a deeper dive at some point.
Anyhoo, enough yakkin’ from me Mick here – let’s get on with the show. Enjoy…

Worst Pedal Platform Amps?
48:14

This is the audio from our YouTube video here: https://youtu.be/lS10FEevBbI

Okay, for everyone I send here from the comments section, this explanation is for you…
Dan and I DID NOT select these amps as ‘the worst pedal platforms’. You did. And here's how that went down…
A few weeks back we were asked a question about ‘bad pedal platform amps.’ We said – as we always do – that there really are no bad ones, it’s more a question of what you want to achieve and whether your amp choice is appropriate for you, or indeed not.
We carried on to say that we thought we could make pretty much any amp sound good with pedals and asked the audience to suggest the worst pedal platform amps, in their opinion.
Among the many, many suggestions the absolute stand-out, clear ‘winner’ was – by a country light year – the Peavey 6505. We were surprised! Somewhere in the far distance was the Roland JC120. However, given that isn’t a real game and we can change the rules however we liked, we chose the JC40 instead. It’s more common, more affordable and I really wanted Dan to hear one.
So, we plug in, try some pedals and hopefully offer some useful suggestions along the way. As we find out… they both cope admirably with pedals!

Also: What’s that new white PRS?
Mick says: The Silver Sky has gone to pastures new and PRS Guitars Europe kindly offered to loan us something else to use on the show. I said what we needed was a relatively simple, mahogany body guitar with humbuckers, as we don’t currently have such a beast. Welcome the S2 Singlecut Standard – link below.”

Marshall Bluesbreaker Style Pedals
01:09:18

This is the audio from our YouTube video here: https://youtu.be/a6bDuYkuiIs

In this episode we revisit the venerable Marshall Blues Breaker overdrive pedal of the early 1990s. This one was very kindly loaned to us by our good friend Chris Buck (honk). Thank you Chris!
The pedal was designed to sound somewhat like the even more venerable Marshall 1962 model 2x12 combo, used most famously by Eric Clapton on the 1966 album ’Blues Breakers With Eric Clapton’… by John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers. Needless to say, that’s where the amp picked up its new name. Phew. That’s a lot of Blues Breakers and Bluesbreakers, but I think it’s right. Mick here.
We start by listening to the original, then stomp through a bunch of modern pedals that take the Blues Breaker pedal, combo, or the head version JTM45 – as their principle inspiration.

Couple of things to note. First, there’s hefty low end in this mix. Maybe it was the bigger cabs. If it’s too much for you, just notch down your graphic EQ a few dB from about 120Hz down. My mixing headphones (Beyer DT880 Pro) are very balanced... a lot of modern 'listening' headphones accentuate bass and I should remember to check that. Apols.

Second, we were remiss in not getting a modern Marshall BB-2 Blues Breaker pedal. Maybe we can revisit that at some point soon.

Yes, that is a real 1965 JTM45 at the end. It’s on next week’s show…

Meantime, please enjoy the episode…

15W Amp With 112, 212 & 412 Cabs
59:39

This is the audio from our YouTube video here: https://youtu.be/XBOjIVs4b7o

In this episode we take a popular ’small’ guitar amp – Fender Bassbreaker 15 1x12 combo (Celestion V-Type speaker), and put it through a couple of bigger extension cabinets, to see what we hear and feel.
The cabs are a Victory V212VC 2x12 with two Celestion G12M Creambacks… and a Marshall 1960A 4x12 with four Celestion G12M Greenbacks.

The settings for the Bassbreaker 15 amp throughout are:
Lowest gain mode
Gain 10 o’clock
Bass 11 o’clock
Middle 11 o’clock
Treble 1 o’clock
Master 3 o’clock
Reverb varies

We also use a selection of OD pedals along the way to see what they bring to the party. Towards the end, we go super low on the volume with a Z Vex Nano Head Tube Amp through the 4x12 and discuss how it sounds and feels.

Questions that will come up from people annoyed this isn’t a lab style A/B comparison…

Q: Why didn’t you use the same speaker types?
A: We don’t have that many of the same type, and the differences between them are just as interesting, we think.

Q: The amp is running at different impedances: surely that makes a big difference?
A: Yes it will. But... 412s and 212s are often different impedances from your amp's internal speaker.

Q: Two cabs are open back, one is closed – does that make a difference?
A: Certainly. And it will vary significantly depending on the size, shape and decoration of the room in which you’re playing.

Q: Why do this at all – a pointless and arbitrary comparison?
A: Maybe, but, ultimately there are no answers, only better questions and the point of all TPS videos is to arm you with some of the latter to spark some inspiration for your own tonal journey.

Mick’s post-ep thoughts…
“Hmm. What we're hearing and feeling in the room was quite different from what the mics captured. We were both ‘struggling’ with the quietness and relative lack of headroom from the Bassbreaker, and of course the Z Vex Nanohead was super quiet, as we discuss. Yet when recorded, everything sounds big and full and fat – really good in fact!
“It underlines the frustrating old truth. As careful as we are with recording and mixing, YouTube videos really don't deliver the physical experience of actually being in the room. So… please get out there and try things, people – the tone will be familiar, but the actual physical experience of it may be very different!

Mick's Board 2018
58:48

This is the audio from the YouTube video here: https://youtu.be/53R5o7qQEVw

 

Mick says: “Dan made my first proper, grown-up’s, flightcased G2 board back in March 2017 – you can watch that video here: https://youtu.be/-wpAnCeHPQs
“That board has served me exceptionally well, but it’s time for an upgrade! I recently acquired a Schmidt Array SA525 pedalboard – lighter and better dimensions for what I need – so what better excuse to have a switch-up?
“This video documents the various stages of the first build. If you want to see more on the specifics of making cables and connecting power, please check out some of other pedalboard build videos, including the one linked above.
“As always, pedals will come in and out so this isn’t set in stone, but the awesome thing about board like this when you have the power and audio in place is that it’s a super simple job to switch things out.”

Signal Path: The pedals run in the order they appear in the loops of G2.

Wet/dry? Loop 6 on G2 is connected to a Humdinger by TheGigRig. That goes to the dry amp (in this case the Victory V40 Deluxe). That means everything before Loop 6 goes to both amps.
Everything after Loop 6 (DC-2, delays, tremolo and Mini Vent II) goes to the wet amp only (the Two-Rock). Why don’t I use the volume insert for the dry amp send? You need to have post gain turned on in order to do that, and I’m super sensitive to the sound of extra buffers.

Please enjoy the episode!

Our agenda is purely to plug them in, see what cool sounds and features we find, and combine them in whatever way inspires. That’s it!

This one is a slight step from the norm – we’re currently inundated with fuzz pedals, so here are NINE in one hit!

A note on the stereo field changes/anomalies in this video. Mick's thoughts...

"You'll hear differences in the stereo field as we switch pedals on and off during this video. After doing the audio and listening back, I think it's down to three possible things…

1) We're using two amps and they are panned a little bit left and right. The Supro (panned relatively left) has far great headroom than the Victory (panned relatively right). So when we step on a pedal that's set with a lot of volume and less fuzz, the Supro gets a lot louder, where the Victory overdrives more and doesn't get as loud (much less headroom0.
2) The volume increases with the cleaner pedals are picked up more via the room mics - you hear more room mic as the amps get louder and they are configured in a stereo mid-side configuation.
3) Less obvious but still possible, it might be a phasing issue with different gain stages/modes in pedals.
Cheers!"

Enjoy the video…

Andy Martin Visits TPS!
01:11:38

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/KboeI9DOdPY

It is our honour and great pleasure to welcome the venerable Andy Martin to the show! Andy was doing online pedal demos for ProGuitarShop.com way back when this was all metaphorical fields. Some 2,000 videos, in fact! When PGS got acquired by online trading site Reverb.com, Andy found he had a new employer and a bunch of new stuff to do.
We explore that a tiny bit, but of course focus on the more important stuff: what’s on his current pedalboard and what does it sound like? We also talk a little bit about Andy’s technique, his approach to demoing and plenty more besides.
Andy Martin is one of the good guys – a true talent, a gentleman and of course an absolute fount of useful playing and tone knowledge. We are, quite literally, not worthy.
But we did it anyway. Enjoy the video…

Bass Guitar FX Board & Chat With Dishan Abrahams
01:00:36

This is the audio from our YouTube video here: https://youtu.be/KVtekMLaDOI

Our first bass video!
In this video we welcome our great friend and utterly monster bass player, Dishan Abrahams. Dishan has a glittering list of credits including Kylie Minogue, Leona Lewis and many, many more. His current main gig is with UK singer/songwriter, Jess Glynne.
Before filming, Dan had put together Dishan’s latest board, so we take the opportunity to go through it while talking more generally about the bass discipline and mindset.
You’ll also notice the equally wonderful Dougie Mussard on drums to provide a bit of context for the bassing, not to mention un petit peu de jammage as well. Dougie and Dan have been playing together since before the dawn of time, so bless ’im he had no choice but to be the TPS Band drummer. Hooray!

We spectacularly managed to not have a bass amp handy, so we improvised with a JHS Colour Box and a powered PA cab for the room. The DI is treated to an Ampeg SVT and 8x10 Plugin via our Universal Audio Apollo 8P.

The drums are mic’d in the Glyn Johns fashion, and the guitar amps are mic’d as usual, so there’s spill everywhere on the jams. Room baby, room.

And yes, the bass is high in the band mixes. It’s a bass video!

Enjoy the video…

Plugged In Acoustic 2
53:56

This is the audio from our YouTube video published here:https://youtu.be/Pz7TCmNe5Zs

Amplifying acoustic guitars is a problem area for literally anyone who plays live with the ol’ flattop. Dan and I both do our fair share of acoustic gigs so we thought we’d start looking at some basics, many of which we covered in Part 1.
In this episode we extend our look at some floor-based devices to help enhance your plugged-in sound, alongside some more general tips, ideas and discussion around the whole subject. We chose the LR Baggs Align Series pedals because they’re new, and the T-Rex SoulMate Acoustic because it’s what Dan uses live. So without further ado…

Victory, Kingsley & Origin Preamp Pedals
01:20:51

This is the audio from our video posted here:

 

In this episode we take a look at three professional quality pedal preamps capable of Marshall ‘plexi’-type tones. That term of course means many things to many people so we don’t spend too long worrying about it… but we do spend absolutely bloomin’ ages listening to the new V4 The Sheriff pedal from Victory, our old favourite Kingsley Constable V2 and the Origin Effects Revival Drive.

One key difference between a pedal preamp and a 'normal' OD pedal is the way they are designed to be used. Typically a preamp has much more output and EQ scope and is therefore able to feed straight into a power amp or FX loop return, essentially adding a whole alternative front end to your amp/board/recording setup. Most 'normal' pedals don't sound at their best used that way and perform better in conjunction with the front end of your amp. Which is great when you love your amp... but if you don't, or want something entirely different, a whole separate preamp could be the answer.

Whether they actually sound like a Marshall Plexi is a moot point. Much more interesting is the depth and range of their sounds when hitting the power section of your favourite amp. Thus, we hook up the trusty Fender Hot Rod Deluxe and work our way through a bunch of guitars.

This is a really, really long video – we admit that Dan and I take way too long getting to the point here, even for us. So we’re making some new rules about video length from now on. Nevertheless, if you use the interesting bits and go-to sections information below, you can get some of your life back. Maybe. Better still, go and find somebody you like and spend real human time with them. It really is better than watching YouTube.

Please enjoy the episode!

Plugged-In Acoustic 101
01:09:58

We delve into the world of amplified acoustic guitars.

This is the audio from the video published here: https://youtu.be/ZC_ZwbS2j5Q

It’s a problem area for literally anyone who plays live with the ol’ flattop. Dan and I both do our fair share of acoustic gigs so we thought we’d start looking at some basics on the show.
We start off by reminding you what an acoustic guitar kinda/sorta sounds like with a mic in front of it, before heading into the world of plugging in via a PA system and/or acoustic guitar amplifier. We also take a brief look at a couple of ‘pedals’, more of which in part 2.

Apology time: I make THREE SCHOOLBOY ERRORS during the show (Mick here)…
I call the non-cutaway Martin a 000-18E. It is in fact an OM-18E - links below.
I explain that a piezo pickup is a piezo-electric transducer. And then like a total dumbass call it an electro-magnetic device. Which of course it isn’t. Piezo-electric transducers use pressure to create a current. Electro-magnetic pickups uses a magnet and a coil. Sorry - brain-fry!
I call the pickup system in the Martin guitars an LR Baggs Lyric. It is in fact an LR BAGGS ANTHEM (link below).

Apologies all round - brain trying to do too many things at once.

Apart from all that, please enjoy the episode!

Danish Pete Invades TPS!
48:17

We welcome the wonderful, the inimitable, and the very Danish Peter Honoré to the show.

This is the audio from our YouTube video here: https://youtu.be/faSwnZmlqes


Peter is known and loved by countless YouTube viewers across the globe from his work on Andertons TV. But he did plenty of interesting, real musician stuff before that too – if you want some history on this Great Dane (woof) watch this: https://youtu.be/CEqKWhR-N-w

In this video Peter talks about his collaboration with Thorpy Pedals on The Dane Overdrive & Booster, as well as entering into a little Tele-off with Dan’s pair of pickin’ planks.

Yes, we could have gone on much longer… but there will be more when we build Peter’s pedalboard. In the meantime, please enjoy the episode!


Please note this is Mick’s board not Peter’s… but with The Dane on it!
We still haven’t built Peter’s board. That will happen at some point.
