10 Ways To Make Reverb Work For You - That Pedal Show
48:09

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/DcvKhl60I-o

We demonstrate 10 ways to use reverb effects pedals for electric guitar to inspire new sounds and creativity in your playing.

Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.

Reverb: pretty much the oldest effect in the book. It’s the sound of space, packed into a handy-sized box that can take your guitar from flat and direct, to colossal and cavernous!
There was a time, not so long ago, that reverb for guitarists was that mysterious knob on your amp that you simply set to ‘not too much’. The last decade however has seen a veritable tidal wave of reverb pedals, offering us ever new ways to wash our tones clean… or dirty.
Most of us are still confused.
So join us as we run through 10 ideas designed to get you vibing on verb.

Enjoy the episode!

10 Things To Try With Booster Pedals - That Pedal Show
53:38

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/svZ2Mhh6wUU

We show you 10 great ways to use boost pedals with your guitar amp and pedals… and discover the boosts you never knew you had!

Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.

Welcome to the show! In this episode, Dan and I go through 10 ways to approach the ‘humble’ boost pedal in your signal chain.

10 Ways To Make Fuzz Pedals Work For You – That Pedal Show
48:00

This is the audio to our video here: https://youtu.be/E85LAMc0iEs

Do you struggle to get usable sounds from fuzz pedals? Fear not – we take you through 10 things to try in order to find fun and inspiration from fuzz!

Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.

A warm welcome to you, sonic voyagers! This fine day we are minded to ask: is there a guitar effect more divisive than fuzz? That beautiful behemoth onslaught of savage square wave so beloved of noisemongers since the mid-1960s… or is it the wanton wrecking of all that is magnificent and majestic on our sacred six-string?

Whatever your position, we hope this video will offer some ideas with which you can go forth and fuzzify.

Enjoy the episode!

How To Choose The Right Delay Pedal For You - That Pedal Show
01:11:33

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/rI1rFe6osYA

Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.

This is a show for the echoically confused among you. You’re either new to delay or you’ve been using it for a while without really understanding what you’re doing. The latter was me about five years ago (Mick here). Dan’s in-utero scans, meanwhile, show the distinct outline of a Deluxe Memory Man: he was basically born at 300ms and seriously modulated. Ahem.
In this episode we explain and demonstrate the main delay/echo foodgroups down the years and how they may, or may not, suit your intended musical application. Please note that this is NOT Chapter & Verse On All Things Delay, Ever (for example we don’t get into stereo delays, effects loops, pedalboard positioning and a bunch of other stuff). Moreover it is a tonal primer for anybody looking to narrow their search, or at least to provide you with some better questions on the quest for that ever evasive echo. Well not so ever any more: you’ve got a problem, nobody else can help and you’ve found (wait for it) The Delay Team, Team, Team, Team, Team, Te…
Oh lordy, apologies. Right, enjoy the episode!

A note on signal chain: All the delays you hear in this episode are into the front of fairly high headroom amps set clean-ish. Overdrive pedals are placed before the delays as per the ‘standard’ order. If you use a gainy amp, you may well prefer the sound of your delay in the amp effects loop. Especially digital delays.

Source Audio Spectrum, Vemuram Shanks ODS-1, Keeley ECCOS, Neo Instruments micro Vent – That Pedal Show
49:48

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/AgOz-ItG5TA

We demo the Keeley Echoes Tape Echo, Vemuram Shanks ODS-1 overdrive, Source Audio Spectrum Intelligent Filter and Neo Instruments Micro Vent guitar effects pedals.

Welcome to Pedal Jams, where we feature four guitar effects 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… and have a little jam to put them in context.

UA OX Box Update, Hiwatt DR103 & A Visit From Tore Mogensen – That Pedal Show
43:11

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/4ElQmEL-IrE

We try out the new cabinets in Universal Audio’s OX firmware update (November 2019), crank our 1973 Hiwatt DR103 and catch up with our old friend Tore Mogensen, formerly of TC Electronic

Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.

Welcome! Regular viewers will know that Dan and I are deeply smitten with Universal Audio’s range of audio interfaces and plug-ins for recording: truly fantastic stuff that has powered TPS for around two years now. UA is also behind the much loved OX Box, a reactive load attenuator and speaker/cab/mic simulation software application for your valve amp. Dan and I went to Real World Studios to make some actual music with it when it came out. Check it out: https://youtu.be/g5Ly5O2MjfY

And we made two tracks: Mick – https://youtu.be/HepnOBCsRs0 and Dan – https://youtu.be/rBLUJzYg-U8

Late in 2019 UA announced a firmware update for OX, adding some much requested Celestion Vintage 30 cabinets and a couple of other cool things. Even better, our old chum Tore Mogensen (formerly of TC Electronic) has finished his first year as a product manager at UA, so took the opportunity to drop in and walk us through it.

 

In the OX bits for the main bulk of the show, you’re hearing the OX direct output only. No actual mics or speakers. At the end of the show when we crank the Hiwatt, that’s the actual mic’d cabinet in the room.

 

Enjoy the episode!

Looping Basics – That Pedal Show
43:52

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

New to looper pedals? We talk about their basic functionality, problems with timing and rhythm, position in the signal chain and dip a toe into more creative applications.

Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.

Welcome! In this episode, Dan and I take a newbie’s approach to looping. We are not experts in this, so we walk through their basic functionality and address some questions you may have surrounding timing and signal chain positioning. We also introduce the concept of adding rhythm loops via a slightly more complex pedal.
Please note this isn’t a looping masterclass, or how to create those amazing multi-layered performance pieces – we’ll get somebody in for that down the line.

A note on the signal routing for the Boss RC-10R…
The RC-10R has stereo ins and outs. You can configure the outputs in other ways too. For this show we had the guitar loop (output A) going to the guitar amps in our studio, while the rhythm pattern (output B) were sent to a full-range powered PA speaker… because they sound pretty pants into a guitar amp to be honest. To see the full signal routing options head to Boss’s site and ingest: https://www.boss.info/uk/products/rc-10r/

TheGigRig Humdinger is there because we were getting a ground loop issue with the RC10-R’s rhythm track into the EV powered PA speaker.

Enjoy the episode!

Budget Guitar Rig Challenge – Dan Vs Mick: That Pedal Show
01:08:50

We challenge each other to put together a whole guitar rig on a small budget – one guitar, one amp and three pedals on a board. What do we choose and who wins?

Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.

Yep, it’s come to this. We’ve finally succumbed to the ravages of clickbait-driven populist drivel… and made a very long, discursive, in-depth video again. Ha! But at least this one features some cheap gear for a change. ‘Don’t you mean ‘affordable’, Michael?’ No, we mean CHEAP. Cheaper than chips. The cheapest chips in town. Erm, and some slightly less cheap and much tastier ones too.
There are some exceptional sounds today, and some to which we take exception. There’s a lot of hiss, a bit of pish but I’ve run out of alliterative ideas so I’ll finish with tish, fish McNish.
Come on, make a wish.

Final scores on the doors were:
Mick’s rig: £1,034 – not £900 like he said at the end of the video
Dan’s rig: £466 – not £360 like he said at the end of the video.

Pedal Order, Before Or After Drive? - That Pedal Show
49:19

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/gAo-1Fvbals

Where should you place your reverb, delay and modulation effects pedals in relation to overdrive and distortion? We look at the options to help you decide.

Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.

In this episode we challenge the commonly accepted 'standard' pedal order and try some alternatives. We are looking specifically at delay, reverb and modulation: how they react before and after overdrive in your signal chain. As we discover, some of these pedal order changes bring subtle results… while others are very radical.

Enjoy the episode!

Greg Koch Plunders TPS!
01:27:30

This is the audio from our video here: 

Greg Koch visits That Pedal Show with the Koch Marshall Trio band for jams and banter. We also demo his signature Reverend Gristlemaster guitar, The Greg Koch amp and of course the Gristle King pedal. Get ready for a ride of truly savage tomfoolery!

Ah, Greg Koch. Gregory Kochery. The Gristlemeister, Sasquatch of six-string savagery. Do you dig it? Well we dig it to epic new levels in this video as our old chum finally descends on That Pedal Show to split our sides with tales of epic guitar heroism… and a lot of hard work and frankly idiotic compulsion for this thing we loosely call ‘music’.
Greg tells us all about his beginnings as a pro musician, before we get into the nitty-gritty on his signature Reverend guitar, Koch amp and Gristle King pedal.

And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, we are thrilled to welcome Koch Marshall Trio: Toby Lee Marshall on organ, and Gary Koehler on drums for renditions of tracks The Tulsa Tussle, Unrepentant and Sweet Tea. Even Dan and I get in on the action for some jammage.
Do we dig it?
Enjoy!

Carry-On Luggage Pedalboard Challenge – Dan vs Mick
01:15:25

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/0ntDSUwTqGM

We assemble two pedalboards that would be allowed as cabin/hand luggage on a typical budget airline. A wide, versatile range of sounds and fast setup is essential – who wins?

Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.

After receiving lots of feedback that our normal, big pedalboards are too big and cumbersome for MPMOTT (most people most of the time), we decided to address the issue with a challenge! Let’s assume we’re flying on a budget airline and have only carry-on/hand luggage… not knowing what amp may be at the other end. What can we come up with?
Let’s find out – enjoy the episode!

Judge’s note: We never got to see Mick’s change of clothes and ablutive accoutrements. The judge hereby confirms he did have a laptop bag containing said items as per the Easy Jet Speedy Boarding allowance ready and packed. But with all the pedalboard fun, we forgot to film it. Doh!

Dan's Ultimate Flanger – That Pedal Show
01:03:31

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/halZY1OYUYQ

We demo a selection of flanger effects pedals for electric guitar including the Thorpy Camoflange, Dreadbox Komo Rebi, Retro-Sonic Flanger and a vintage Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Electric Mistress.

So, um, yes he has! In this episode we pick up from where we left off well over a year ago in ‘Dan Wants A New Flanger’, which you watch here: https://youtu.be/mxyaUfKooDg
Like a fine wine or maybe one of those truly gopping mouldy cheeses, the question of Dan's flanger has needed time to ferment and mature into a well rounded answer… not least while Thorpy was developing the new Camoflange with the help of British guitar effects guru, Dan Coggins. Which means there are no prizes whatsoever for guessing what Dan’s new favourite flanger is. He’s really quite ripe about it.
Let’s flange and…

Strymon Iridium – That Pedal Show
01:08:24

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/XKmN-Dykgjk

We demo the Strymon Iridium amp, cab and room simulator pedal alongside Vox AC30 and Fender Super Reverb guitar amplifiers. We use a selection of effects pedals including overdrive, fuzz & delay.

Life too short for long YouTube videos? See ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ below.

Welcome! Regular viewers will know that Dan and I aren’t regular users of digital modelling amps and cabs. Why? Well, because we own pretty much all the real stuff and we absolutely love playing it for a whole host of reasons.
Nevertheless, we are genuinely intrigued by the Strymon Iridium because of its simplicity, form factor and adaptability into traditional pedalboards. That is what this video is about, plus some comparisons with some ‘real’ amps. Thus…

WHAT AM I HEARING?
The actual valve amps are mic’d with Sontronics Delta 2 ribbon mics on the cabs, plus a pair of AKG C414 XLS mid-side for stereo room mics. They go into a Universal Audio Apollo 8p interface running Neve 1073 mic preamp plugins.

The Iridium is going direct to stereo channels in the Apollo 8p with no additional preamps. It is a purely direct signal: no microphones. In the studio we are hearing the Iridium’s direct sound through 1500-watt EV PA speakers.

WHY DIDN’T YOU USE A FENDER DELUXE REVERB?
We don’t own one. We do have a Super Reverb which isn’t the same thing, but it is close enough for an interesting comparison.

We will do a VCQ this Monday to discuss the reaction and comments. Should be fun. Enjoy the episode!

EL84 Amp Magic: Vox, Matchless and Victory
01:06:03

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/3zbo_ZGxvZc

We demo and compare guitar amps using EL84 power tubes: Vox AC15 C1, 1961 Vox AC30, Victory VC35 The Copper and Matchless HC-30. We play clean, crank the amps to overdrive and also use a couple of key boost pedals.

Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.

In this episode Dan and I fire up four amps that we like very much to see what we can learn. Dan’s beloved 1961 AC30 is his most treasured amplifier… but not the one he chooses to play as his main amp. That would be his Matchless HC-30 which – as amp fans will know– is chiefly inspired by those classic Vox amps of old. So how do they compare?
But fear ye not those of thinner wallet. Clearly not everyone has multiple thousand pounds/dollars/euros to drop on these rarefied lungs of rock’n’roll, so we also include the much more attainable Vox AC15 C1 and Victory VC35 to see how they stand up. (And if you want to hear a digital simulation side by side with the AC30, watch next week’s show on the Strymon Iridium.)
It’s a long video with plenty of tangents, even more variables and about as much scientific analysis as a three-year-old eating trifle, so anyone looking for stringent A/B comparisons and hard conclusions will be disappointed. It's just how it is here people.

Enjoy the episode!

Boss MD-200, Stone Deaf PDF-1X, GCP Comfortably Plum, TC Flashback II x4 – That Pedal Show
42:18

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/K6UeQOSn-oY

We demo the Boss MD-200, Stone Deaf PDF-1x, Green Carrot Pedals Comfortably Plum and TC Electronic Flashback II x4 guitar effects pedals.

Welcome to Pedal Jams, where we feature four guitar effects 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… and have a little jam to put them in context.

If you like this backing track you can buy it at https://www.thatpedalshowstore.com/collections/downloads

Ariel Posen Gear & Jams [New Hudson Broadcast-AP, Mulecaster, TPS Band] – That Pedal Show
01:00:00

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/BCy0rKKUFUQ

Ariel Posen joins us to talk about his 2019 travel board, the signature Hudson Broadcast-AP overdrive pedal and his incredible metal-body Mulecaster. He also jams with the That Pedal Show band!

Ariel is a wonderful musician who we first met in 2016. He has a long CV of band, touring and session playing, including The Brothers Landreth. He has recently embarked on a solo career, releasing the album ‘How Long’ in 2019, following up with live dates across Europe and North America.
We are delighted to welcome him to Schwangri-La to shoot the breeze about life, guitars and related matters arising… not least his new Hudson Broadcast-AP pedal, before some epic jammage with Doug Mussard (drums) and Paddy Blight (bass) – otherwise known as That Pedal Show Band… when they don’t have a better gig - ha!
Ariel is playing the Two-Rock throughout, Mick and Dan play the Victory at the end.

Boss EQ-200, JHS Cheese Ball, JAM Ripply Fall, Diamond Memory Lane Jr – That Pedal Show
32:47

This is the audio to our video here: https://youtu.be/aga2P4VAP_g

We demo the JHS Pedals Cheese Ball, Boss EQ-200, JAM Pedals Ripply Fall and Diamond Pedals Memory Lane Jr guitar effects pedals.

Welcome to Pedal Jams, where we feature four guitar effects 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… and have a little jam to put them in context.

On the subject of which, please pick what you can out of this week’s jam. It's a bit pants - we need to find a better way of doing this... like actually learning the chords to the track before we hit record would be a good place to start. Apologies. We indeed could and should do MUCH better, as we’re sure the comments will reflect. Live and learn, and all that.

Secondly, yes it’s a real 1961 Fender Stratocaster - a refin, and on a longish term loan to me. Mick here. I’m a lucky boy. Trying not to get too excited about it because it’s not mine… but it is spectacular and I’m already in love with it. Gah! More on that over coming weeks.

If you like this backing track, you can buy it at That Pedal Show Store…

Enjoy the episode!

Matt Schofield 2019 & The TPS Band! - That Pedal Show
01:05:51

This is the audio from our video here:https://youtu.be/oWuFtn8PnMI

Fantastic blues guitarist Matt Schofield visits TPS with his new Mad Professor Supreme Pedal, Two Rock amp and SVL ’61 Daytona guitar. Matt shares a ton of playing knowledge and tone tips before jamming with the TPS Band… including Dan and Mick!

Matt Schofield is an incredible musician whom Dan and I have known for almost two decades now. His unerring dedication to constant improvement, refinement and expression in his playing is inspirational to say the least, as is his stellar tone and dynamic touch. He’s also a beacon for purity and simplification on the gear front, all of which we discuss in this video including some awesome jamming with Paddy Blight on bass and Dougie Mussard on drums… otherwise known as the TPS Band.
Matt has the new Supreme overdrive pedal out with Mad Professor – Harri Koski also joins us – and we must also say a massive thanks to Damo Ford from Curt Mangan strings and Reunion Blues gigbags for organising Matt’s visit.
Curt Mangan: https://dynamicmusicdistribution.co.uk/collections/matt-schofield-signature-set
Reunion Blues: https://dynamicmusicdistribution.co.uk/pages/reunion-blues

Matt is using the Two-Rock Classic Reverb Signature amplifier throughout, with the Universal Audio Ox Box set to minimum attenuation into the TR 2x12 cab.
Dan and Mick play through the Victory V140 The Super Duchess.

Fulltone OCD V1.7, V2 and CS-GE
47:47

We demo and compare the Fulltone OCD V1.7, OCD V2 and the Custom Shop OCD GE overdrive pedals through a Marshall Plexi amp and Fender Hot Rod Deluxe.

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/lYX8MJt4ulc

The Fulltone OCD is without question among the most loved and successful guitar overdrive pedals of all time. Introduced in 2005 (we think!), its creator Mike Fuller wanted an OD pedal with plenty of dynamics and headroom, a relatively open EQ response and of course plenty of full, rich and dynamic overdrive. It is noted for responding well off the guitar’s volume pot and is used in pretty much every musical genre you can mention.
There were a number of incremental changes to the design over the years from V1 to V1.7 - notably tweaking the midrange and adding germanium clipping diodes – then in 2017, Fuller surprised everyone with a V2, which is where we pick up the story in this video. Oh, and there's a Custom Shop GE version too.
As a point of interest, this is also probably just about the best demonstration of what buffers to do your tone that we’ve stumbled on yet. Time stamps below…

Walrus Audio At That Pedal Show
01:20:20

Colt Westbrook and Jason Stulce from Walrus Audio pedals visit That Pedal Show. We demo the EB-10 EQ Boost guitar effects pedal, Monument V2 Harmonic Tremolo, 385 Overdrive, SLO reverb, Julia chorus and ARP-87 delay.

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/KOwDR_T7wZw

 

Hello! Mick here. We’ve always loved Walrus Audio pedals, so when Colt and Jason called up to say they’d be visiting dear old Blighty, we just had to have them on the show to talk about life, the history of their business and maybe an effects pedal or two.
We kick off with a quiz, talk about some history stuff and get a listen to their latest and greatest.

Enjoy the episode!

Phil X On Playing With Attitude – Dan's Vlog
35:16

This is the audio to our video here: https://youtu.be/5-v4UFOh6-w

Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store https://www.thatpedalshowstore.com

Hello, Dan here!
I've been fortunate enough to hang with Phil X on a number of occasions, and he is undoubtedly one of the coolest guys I know.
Currently with Bon Jovi, he is a truly gifted rock guitar player who exudes intensity and attitude, but who also understands dynamics and sensitivity.
I've been a fan since his 'Fretted Americana' days on YouTube, so when Phil was passing through London I grabbed the opportunity to sit with him and see if I could glean some insight into just how he does what he does

The Right Guitar Tuner For You? – That Pedal Show
57:51

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/OuMlFt8QdcM

And lo, at noon of the fifth day, the world cryeth in (almost) unison: “Surely they cannot make a 57-minute video about guitar pedal tuners?! They’re all the same, aren’t they?!”

And Dan and Mick looked down upon the people and said, “For too long you have placed your trust in that box that never quite makes an open D and G sound right. Wise ye up to these teachings and see if thy blessed instrument may sing more harmoniously. It will verily take as long as it takes.”
Yep, annoyingly there is quite a lot to say about guitar tuners. From the obvious (it needs to fit wherever you’re going to put it) to the not so obvious (accuracy is at best a moving target), we talk about relative pitch, sweetened tuning, silent tuning, monitor modes, buffers and plenty more besides. Including 432Hz, should you be interested.
One thing for certain is that you ought never to look at your tuner in the same way again.

Enjoy the episode!

What Are Ambient Tones Anyway? – That Pedal Show
01:00:50

This is the audio from our vide here: https://youtu.be/Yp61VmZM3q8

In this episode we dip a very tentative toe into the deep waters of ‘ambient’ sounds in guitar. As we discuss, putting labels on music is problematic from the off… but to us ‘ambient’ guitar is about building textures using combinations of delay and reverb, then manipulating those further with anything from modulation to pitch shifting to synthesis to looping etc etc etc… anything you can think of, basically. Soundscapes, textures, ambience, mood. 

Covering a whole movement in a hour seems at best foolish but this is That Pedal Show after all, where our sole intention is to spark some inspiration and questions in your minds for things you might like to try. So let’s see if that happens…

If you like the backing track used in this video (we’ve called it ‘Ambiphoria’ and it was made by Fraser our assistant, predominantly with the Chase Bliss Audio Mood and Empress Zoia), it is available from That Pedal Show Store. https://www.thatpedalshowstore.com/collections/downloads

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.

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!

Boss Waza Tube Amp Expander & UAD OX – That Pedal Show
56:41

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?

 

Enjoy the episode!

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!

This segment is where we answer your questions and comments – hopefully every Monday.

The main focus of the Q&A will be the main show that went out on the preceding Friday, but we'll answer other stuff too.

 

Here's the link to the main show being discussed – it was a video about impedance, resistance, capacitance and a bunch of other nerdy electronics stuff with our wonderful friend, Simon Jarrett of Kingsley Amps & Pedals: https://youtu.be/pmUq8uK_AL8

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/

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…

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.

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!
