    Every guitarist out there has their favourite pedal. One's hands truly are at the heart of their guitar sound, but the pedals are certainly a nice way to shape tone. They are a great tool for carving out a part of one's sonic signature that is uniquely yours, and yours alone. Lucas has found his favourite for electric gigs, as well as his favourite for acoustic gigs, and is showcasing both in today's episode.

    If you had to pick just one, what's your favorite all time pedal? Lucas is always eager to hear about all the great gear that's out there! Let your voice be heard in the comment section below.

    That Pedal Show – Thoughts On Clean Sounds, Part 1

    44:03

    Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

    In this episode Daniel and Mick begin a discussion around ‘clean’ tones. It’s a massive subject and much of this video is devoted to the kinds of dynamic and transient attack characteristics you can expect from certain kinds of guitars and amps. We talk about compression, tremolo and light gain, before touching //very// briefly on delay and modulation.
    We’re sure this video will throw up a lot of questions that we can address in some follow-up videos!

    That Pedal Show – Boss CE-1, CE-2 & CE-2 Waza, Plus Four Other Great Chorus Pedals

    44:58

    Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

    In this episode Daniel and Mick revisit the wonderful world of chorus sounds, chiefly around the genre-defining evolution of early Boss CE-1 and CE-2 pedals. That’s currently relevant because the brand has recently released its higher-end, Japanese-made Waza Craft line of pedals, one of which is the CE-2w.
    So, we compare an original CE-1, CE-2 and the new CE-2w, plus a small selection of other chorus pedals that we rate very highly.
    For good measure we also have a Roland JC-120 on hand.

    That Pedal Show – Get More From Your Fender Blues Jr, Loud & Quiet. And Other Small Valve Amps!

    47:34

    Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

    In this episode Daniel and Mick use a bunch of different boosts and ODs through the venerable Fender Blues Junior, in this case a version III model.
    It’s an extremely popular small valve amp for good reason - excellent value for money, a range of good tones and of course, highly portable while being plenty loud enough for small gigs (and big ones if you’re mic’d!)

    • Fender Blues Junior III
    UK & Europe:
    USA:

    The point of the video is to help you get a handle on what kinds of boosts, overdrives and boosts might suit your gain needs, depending on your playing style, volume level and of course your guitars. We make some interesting discoveries along the way!

    Blues Tone With Blues Junior And Keeley BD2 Blues Driver

    Just a little gear video I threw together with my Texas Red Blues Junior and my current pedalboard (which probably isn't current anymore :)

    The voice is a little low in the mix, sorry about that. But you can hear the guitar amp just fine. Enjoy!

    That Pedal Show – Five Great Alternatives To Your Normal Overdrive Or Boost Pedal

    49:33

    Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

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


    In this episode we take a look at five different boosty-preampy-overdrivey-type pedals that differ significantly from your ‘normal’, op-amp-based overdrive. By ‘normal’ we mean the common and much-loved OD pedals out there such as the Boss SD-1, Ibanez Tube Screamer, Boss Blues Driver, Fulltone OCD and so on… all of which work in a broadly similar fashion with a combination of an operational amplifier (usually an IC chip such as the JRC4558D in the case of the classic Tube Screamers) and some form of clipping diodes.
    These five do things differently… and sound very different to boot, offering up a whole range of different tones, textures and responses that can complement – or indeed totally replace – that ‘normal’ OD on your board. We’re not saying ‘better’, we’re not saying ‘worse’, we just saying ‘different’ and well worth checking out for anyone who hasn’t already done so.
    Let’s get to it…

    Wet-Dry & Wet-Dry-Wet Amp & FX Setups Explained – That Pedal Show

    1:21:04

    Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

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

    Dan and I are big fans of the wet-dry rig. 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)

    NOTE: There are some audio gremlins in this episode. The Two-Rock parts are dull sounding at times. We've been through it, checked the audio for obvious mistakes and found none... but something is awry. The main points of the video still stand and there are some amazing sounds elsewhere to make up for it!
    More Wet/Dry examples - and no gremlins - coming next week!

    Enjoy!

    That Pedal Show – Synth Sounds For Electric Guitar: Roland, EHX, Hologram & Digitech

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


    In this episode we have a preliminary taste of the main food groups when it comes to guitar synthesis. From the simple Digitech Synth Wah to the mighty Roland GR-55 and GK MIDI pickup, guitar synthesis offers you a colossal range of options and sounds beyond your ‘normal’ amps and pedals. Huge, crushing distorted synth lead lines, whammy-type bends, sample and hold, crazy church organ madness through to a full-on jazz trio? It’s all here and a whole world more besides. Let’s synthesise, baby…

    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 cacophonous 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!”

    Practical Playing Tips: Reverb Staging

    18:19

    How should I approach the reverb section of my board? I get asked this question a lot! This video explores how I approach the reverb section of my pedalboard. To achieve the various sounds we need, we can approach reverb much like gain staging; that is, reverbs can be “staged”, from lower, darker mixes to higher, brighter mixes, to long-decaying swell ‘verbs.

    1:03 Stage 1 // Neunaber Stereo Wet
    1:42 Stage 2 // Strymon BigSky // Dark Washy ‘Verb
    3:06 How reverb can control where we sit in the mix
    3:20 Stage 3 // Strymong BigSky // Bright Washy ‘Verb
    5:18 Explanation of the power and usefulness of Pre-Delay
    6:49 Swell ‘Verb // Strymon Flint
    7:33 Why I love the big Communications Knobs from RadioShack
    8:34 The importance of buffered bypass reverb pedals
    10:48 Shimmer ‘Verb // Strymon BigSky

    That Pedal Show – Better Solo Tones For Everyone

    48:08

    Welcome to That Pedal Show and thank you for watching – please subscribe to our channel and visit our store.


    We are also members of Patreon, should you wish to support us in That Pedal Show

    In this video Daniel and Mick explore some basic concepts around getting a better solo tone.

    What is a better solo tone? Obviously it’s an extremely subjective topic once you bring personal likes/dislikes into play, but the one thing on which we can all surely agree is that as a very basic start point, a good solo tone begins with ‘one that can be heard’.
    By contrast a ‘bad’ solo tone is one that can’t be heard, and there are many of us who have been in that situation where you step on the next pedal to make your tone soar… only to find that it just crashes! That is where we begin.

    Throughout the video we touch on the areas of gain, EQ and relative wetness of your effects in the context of being heard for that all important solo.

    Interesting points of go-to bits
    • What is a ‘good’ solo tone? 2:05
    • Thoughts on gain and solo tones: 3:25
    • Amps we’re using today: 4:57
    • Midrange, gain and being heard (with Angry Charlie V3): 8:53
    • How more gain can impact on the dynamics of your playing: 14:01
    • Using a mid-boost (TS Mini) before and after your main overdrive: 15:38
    • Angry Charlie after Carpe Diem: 19:27
    • Zen Drive and mid frequencies: 23:00
    • Zen Drive & Angry Charlie 25:45
    • EQ pedal thoughts: 27:15
    • Delay time basics and solo tones – short or long? 29:29
    • Reverb basics and solo tones: 38:08
    • Compression and clean tones: 40:42

    Amp emulation pedals for going direct in or headphones... which is best?

    12:57

    All of us at one time or another have been in a situation where you simply can't play through an amp, but you need great tone. Sometimes it's at church, playing in a praise and worship band, but you have to figure out how to get the best out of all of your pedals on your pedalboard and going direct to the soundboard sounds like poop. Maybe you live in an apartment and can't crank an amp up. Perhaps your spouse just wants some peace and quiet but you feel the need to get your shred on.

    Whatever the reason, I bring you a couple of different ways to accomplish this.

    Enjoy :)

    Guitar Tone Tuesday: Ep: 22 - Unleashing the Beast! Melancon Custom Artist T Review

    7:27

    Guitar Tone Tuesday: Episode 22 - Unleashing the beast! Melancon Custom Artist T tones and review


    Lucas Haneman of the LH Express gives you experienced tips and tricks, as well as showcasing lesser known gear in this series.
    Lucas uses his ears and hands to guide him when choosing gear, writing songs and recording parts. Will you agree with his assessment? Subscribe and follow to let your voice be heard!

    On this week's special episode Lucas plugs his new Melancon Custom Artist T through his rig ( a pedal board and his Vintage Sound Vintage 20 Princeton style amp). The only pedals used in this video are a Kingsley Minstrel Overdrive, and a Ditto Looper. Following last week's unboxing episode, he wanted to serve up all the tones, and talk a little about this fantastic guitar! These instruments are handmade by Gerard Melancon from Thibodaux, Louisiana. Lucas is deeply honoured to be a Melancon artist, and spec’d out this guitar over the last year with Gerard.

    Guitar featured:
    Melancon Custom Artist T:
    Aged whiskey finish on top, dark finish on back.
    Light Weight Swamp ash body, flamed maple top, 2 custom wound Melancon low wined PAF style pickups.
    Roasted maple neck (round 59 Paul profile with +70 over carve/0.88 inches at the first fret, 0.94 inches at the 12th fret). Satin finish on neck and headstalk, 12 inch fretboard radius.
    Pau Ferro fingerboard, stainless steel heavy fret wire. Fret markers are clay Dots with L H initials at 12th fret inlayed in Abalone shell.
    Non locking Melancon tuners.
    Melancon hard tail bridge with Graphtech string saver classic (PG 800) saddles

    The entire guitar comes in around 6 pounds 3 ounces, with no tone chambers or weight relief!


    Have you ever tried a Melancon guitar? If not, do yourself a favor and give one a chance. The tuning stability is 2nd to none in Lucas's opinion.
    What do you think of this new axe? Let your voice be heard in the comment section below.

    Fun With Five Awesome Vintage Amps From 1958 - 1966 – That Pedal Show

    1:2:36

    Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

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

    In this video we indulge ourselves in some cornerstones of guitar amplification history. It was made possible by one kind TPS viewer, who got in touch to tell us about his collection of vintage beauties… and made them available to borrow!
    Johnny, we thank you on behalf of the whole TPS audience. And massive thanks for us too – this was a trip!

    1958 Fender Bassman (5F6-A)
    1962 Fender Princeton
    1965 Marshall JTM45
    1965 Fender Super Reverb
    1966 Fender Princeton Reverb
    1969 Fender Vibratone

    Dan and I do our best to ask relevant questions and try different things, but to be honest, the whole thing was a bit of a blur. Questions you might have…

    Q: Aaaarrgghhh! Why didn’t you try them against new examples?
    A: We had too much to get through, but take it as read that these old amps don’t really sound like the modern reissues… plus the old ones can sound very different between examples.

    Q: That amp doesn’t sound like mine – it must be broken?
    A: Don’t think so… but old amps differ significantly. They’ve been around for decades, repaired and so on. They’re clearly not all the same.

    Q: How were the amps mic’d?
    A: Our usual combination of Royer/Sontronics ribbons and Neumann condensers on the amps, plus the mid-side pair of AKG C414 XLII in the room.

    Q: Is the phasing of Super Reverb and Vibratone off?
    A: Sounds like it, doesn’t it? Mick here. I checked it and checked it and checked it. The opposing phase choices were all worse. Something odd was happening – maybe somebody out there knows – but we just went with it anyway. Adding the Bassman in really helped.

    Q: Why didn’t you try… //insert all the things we didn’t try here//
    A: Sometimes you have to be happy with what you have, rather than sad at what you don’t.

    That Pedal Show – Muffy Fuzzes & ’Verb: Shades Of Shoegaze

    47:02

    Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

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


    In this episode we’re treading on some very thin ice, way out of our usual comfort zones… talking very loosely about late 1980s British indie genre, Shoegaze.
    After we stumble uncomfortably through a brief (and probably incorrect) history of what it was and how it came to be (try Wikipedia for something better), we haul ourselves onto the solid ground of fuzz pedals! Specifically EHX Big Muff-inspired fuzzes from four different manufacturers, plus a lovely old 1974 Sola Sound Tonebender for good measure.
    Add plenty of reverb, a couple of offset guitars, turn it up and watch ’em go!

    That Pedal Show – Real Leslie Cabinet vs Neo Ventilator II, EHX Lester G & Strymon Lex

    41:43

    Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

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


    In this episode we compare a genuine Leslie speaker cabinet with modern pedals designed to emulate it. The Leslie we’re using is an HL-822 model. There have been many made over the years, some valve, some solid-state and no doubt they all sound different. This is a solid-state one that we were very kindly loaned by Darren from the Vic in Swindon, UK.
    We start with a good listen to the Leslie before diving into the pedals to see what we can learn. The three new pedals are set up to run in stereo, which is pretty much essential if you want to get an authentic Leslie sound happening out of a normal guitar amp.
    No, we couldn’t find a Hughes & Kettner Tube Rotosphere, not least because it’s discontinued. But they are exceptionally good, just for the record!

    We mic'd the Leslie with 2 x Rode NT-5 condensers (panned left and right) and a single Sennheiser e906. It's probably not the ultimate choice of mics, but hey, it's what we had available... you get the idea pretty well!

    One Guitar, One Amp, One Pedal: What Would You Choose?

    54:17

    Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

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


    We are approaching the end of an era as we get ready to turn the lights out for good in That Pedal Shed.
    But don’t panic. We are moving to a bigger and better space, so before we do we thought we’d make a couple of more lighthearted shows to bid farewell to ol’ place: this week and next.
    What, then, if we were only allowed just one guitar, one amp and one pedal: what would we choose to satisfy ear and soul among the endless options?
    As it turns out we reckon this could turn into a regular that runs every few months because as we explain in this episode, your current mood, tastes and most recent experiences always have a big impact on the choices. Next week the choices may have been quite different!
    Please enjoy the show…

    That Pedal Show – Strymon Mobius vs Classic Modulation Effects Pedals

    1:2:30

    Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

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


    In this episode we are responding to many, many requests to put the Strymon Mobius ‘against’ a selection of classic single-sound pedals. We cover flanger, phaser, rotary speaker, Univibe-type vibe and chorus as the main modulation food groups, before having a brief excursion through the Mobius’s.additional modes. This thing has sooooo many options we’re barely scratching the surface, yet scratch it we will.
    A quick thanks to Katherine, Mick’s wife, who was on filming duties today because Simon was off having a baby. Or at least Simon’s wife was having a baby – CONGRATULATIONS GUYS!
    Also, Mick wrongly states that Candy Apple Red was around from the late 1950s. NO! It was introduced in 1963. Slap that wrist.

    Right, let’s get in to this…

    That Pedal Show – What Is An Expression Pedal & How Do I Use One?

    59:00

    Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

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


    In this episode we delve into the world of real-time control via expression pedals. An expression pedal connects to a compatible effects device and can be assigned to change certain parameters. For example, manual control of delay time, delay repeats, modulation speed, depth, extent of pitch shifting etc etc etc. Have a play around with one, and you’ll soon see why they’re called expression pedals.
    We start off simply, talking about single-parameter changes on a single pedal, and end up in multiple parameter changes on multiple pedals using MIDI CC messages. The sounds are out of this world, so this is one for all you sonic explorers out there. Please forgive my look of total bemusement for almost the entire video. (Mick here).

    Vintage Hiwatt DR103 Amps: Wet/Dry, Plus UA OX & Fryette Attenuators – That Pedal Show

    1:5:07

    Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

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

    In this video we indulge in TWO vintage Hiwatt DR103 heads (1972 and 1973). We begin by hearing them in a wet/dry configuration including an original Binson Echorec Baby, before moving on to (slightly) more real-world volumes using two different types of attenuator.
    Hiwatt 1 is demoed using the Fryette Power Station (V1), Dan’s favourite attenuator. (Timings listed below.)
    Hiwatt 2 is demoed with the Universal Audio OX Amp Top Box, a reactive load attenuator that includes speaker and mic modelling. You can hear both the real mic’d cab and virtual mics. Obviously, we include a selection of nice pedals along the way.
    A note on volume. The Hiwatt DR103 is ludicrously loud, so to have two of them going at once is borderline barking mad, not to mention dangerous. We don’t get into cranking them unattenuated.
    It might be confusing when Dan and I are sat there remarking how crazy loud it is… when your experience via the YouTube video is that everything is a similar volume. We explain that in the video, in terms of adjusting the mic input gains accordingly: loud amps, less mic gain. Quiet amps, more mic gain. If we left the mic gains low, the quieter, attenuated amps would sound thin and rubbish (because they're quiet in your speakers/headphones).
    The point is that the physical experience in the room differs from what ends up being recorded - such an important topic when listening to gear demos online. We should never forget it!

    Mick’s Vlog – Blue Strat Saddle Changes In The Rabbit Hole Of Tone Chasing – That Pedal Show

    42:03

    Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

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

    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 – – 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!

    Marshall Blues Breaker Style Overdrive Pedals: The Current Faves – That Pedal Show

    1:9:19

    Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

    Life too short for long videos? Key timings below in ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’


    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…

    That Pedal Show – Thoughts On Five Spring Reverb Pedals And The Fender Super Reverb Amp

    49:46

    Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

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


    In this episode we get all springy with a small selection of reverb pedals designed to sound like a great amp spring reverb. Two of them contain real springs while the other three use digital business to emulate the sound. All the way through we have our trusty Fender Super Reverb amplifier for comparison, and a bit of light overdrive just for fun. Which one do you like best?

    Wacka wacka wacka, oooowww, eee, aaaahhh. Etc. You know what a wah-wah sounds like and you know what an auto-wah/envelope filter sounds like too… because you’ve heard ‘em through rock and pop history. They’re some of the most downright arousing tones ever committed to wax (or encoded into 1s and 0s).
    Any road up, here we go through some vintage and modern envelope filters to see wha’s what (see what we did there?) and help newcomers find a foothold in the scraggy crevices on filter mountain.
    Let’s get whakkin’ y'all. Ahem.

    Great Uni-Vibe Sounds, Signal Chain Considerations & Associated Tangents – That Pedal Show

    1:2:11

    Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

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

    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 countless 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…

    That Pedal Show – T-Rex Replicator, Strymon, Wampler, Empress & Tone City Tape Delays

    47:57

    Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

    In this episode we check out the T-Rex Replicator – a real tape delay unit – in comparison with some of our favourite tape delay-emulating pedals.
    There’s definitely something magic about using real tape to create delay and echo. From the early European units to the fabled Echoplex in all its guises, their unique preamps, idiosyncratic mechanics, involuntary noises and of course their utterly unique tones have captured the imaginations of countless guitarists. Not least us.
    To whit we have finally got our hands on a T-Rex Replicator (first released in 2016). It’s the first pedal-shaped genuine tape delay with tap tempo that we know of, so here we compare it with some heavy hitters in the tape delay-emulating pedal world…

    That Pedal Show – Thoughts On Valve Overdrive Pedals, Part 1

    26:26

    Welcome to That Pedal Show and thank you for watching – please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

    We are also members of Patreon, should you wish to support us with That Pedal Show

    In this video Daniel and Mick take a look at three valve-driven overdriven pedal/preamps and ask why you may - or may not - want to use one. This is not a comparison of different valve overdrive pedals. Maybe we’ll do that another time, so let us know what pedals you might like to see. That might be part 2. For now, however…

    The pedals we’re using today:
    • Kingsley Jester (hear it first at 6:43)
    • BK Butler Tube Driver (hear it first at 8:40)
    • Dean Markley Overlord (modified - hear it first at 9:50)

    Other interesting bits…
    • The bonkers EQ on the Tube Driver 10:58
    • Discussion about high- and low-headroom amps and how valve pedals interact with each at different compression levels: 13.32
    • Mick doesn’t really mean ‘violining’ at 16:30. He just means how super smooth Eric Johnson’s sound is. He does know violining means volume swells, but his brain wasn’t connecting. Sorry about that.
    • Comparison with Keeley-modded Boss BD-2 Blues Driver into the Hamstead: 17:20
    • Using The Tube Driver with other pedals: 21.28


    Mick is playing a PRS DGT model, Dan is playing a Nik Huber Krautster II.

    Amps are a Fender Super Reverb with 4x10 Jensen alnico speakers and a Hamstead Artist 20+RT through a 1x12 Celestion Alnico Blue.

    As always, all pedal and amp switching and routing is handled by TheGigRig G2.

    That Pedal Show – Five Awesome Analogue Delays: MXR, JHS, Moog, Boss & Seymour Duncan

    1:1:15

    Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

    Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the timings in the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below to help you navigate the video.


    In this video we take a look at five modern analogue delay pedals. We explain how analogue delay has its own specific sound that stands apart from digital and tape delays, yet even within the analogue delay sphere there is a significant difference in the sounds of ostensibly similar pedals.
    From the simple brilliance of the MXR Carbon Copy to the all-new Seymour Duncan Vapour trail, we go through the sounds of each pedal, with and without gain, and explore some of possibilities of each. These aren't in-depth demos of every feature; more a kick-off point for their key similarities and differences.

    Thank you for watching… Please enjoy the video.

    That Pedal Show Special – Matt Schofield: Tone, Technique, Amps… And Pedals!

    1:5:13

    Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

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


    In this episode, we’re honoured to get a visit from our good friend, Matt Schofield. Matt is an astonishingly good blues-based player from the UK who we’ve known for many years. These days he spends most of his time in the US, never ceasing to astound fans and audiences with his incredible touch, tone and sophisticated approach to blues guitar.
    During this video we ask Matt about his approach to guitar tone, his technique and all that other fun stuff that goes hand-in-hand with it. Matt brought along his pedalboard, his SVL 61 guitar and of course his signature Two-Rock amplifier, leaving us somewhat stunned – there’s some killer playing, but also some really good general advice on tone and approach in this video.
    Enjoy the episode!

    FOR MORE ON MATT PLEASE VISIT

    A NOTE ON NOISE AND HUM…
    For this episode, Matt had his Two-Rock at proper gig levels. It is a phenomenal sonic and physical experience (which bizarrely never sounded painful or unpleasant) that’s all part and parcel of his tone.
    As a result, there is more hum and extraneous noise than normal (Dan is currently building Matt a new board to help with that, but that’s another story).
    The important thing to say is that we use NO hum reduction software or anything of the kind. What you’re hearing is the vocal mic (gained very high to pick up the voices, plus plenty of compression) get faded up and down as Matt speaks. It gives an accentuated impression of the hum, even though it was pretty loud in our little room. When the amp mics are on, we use NO hum reduction, it’s just that the mic on the cab is gained so much lower than our voice mic, so the hum doesn’t seem anywhere near as loud. Hope that makes sense.

    Sennheiser e906 & Neumann TLM102, Mic Comparison, Dispersion Panels… and Jamming! – That Pedal Show

    52:27

    Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

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


    Forgive us, for this week it’s a bit more millenial-approved, soshal-meedja-addicted naval-gazing self-indulgence with That New Pedal Shed. Or This Pedal Shed, Schwangri-La… or whatever it’s going to be called.
    But here’s how this goes. We do all this off camera, tell you fine people about it, and then you ask for a video explaining what we did. So rather than go all through that, we’ll just do it here vlog-stylee, like Zoella or some other modern YouTuber would. But don’t worry, we’re not going to tell you how to get over the shame of wearing the same outfit as your ex-BFF to the hella-good-hair guy’s party. We say take a mid-’50s D-18 and do a wicked Tay-Tay cover, dress or no dress girlfriend. //this is getting scary now, stop.//
    Okay, sit back and enjoy Dan and I setting up some of our current favourite stuff to see what we can hear in the new room, after one of us was feeling a bit sad that it sounded a bit, um, sad. We have some new microphones – Neumann TLM102 – and some bits of wood that call themselves ‘sound dispersion panels’. And by golly they work! Much less sadness now.
    Oh, and we jam too.
    Please enjoy the episode…
