    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.

    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!”

    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 – 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 - Analog Man King Of Tone Alternatives: Are There Any?

    49:19

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

    In this episode Daniel and Mick are discussing the much-loved Analog Man King Of Tone overdrive. It’s Dan’s favourite overdrive of recent times but as many people will know, there is a very long waiting list if you want to buy one.

    So, what can you do while you’re waiting, or indeed if you don’t want to wait at all? We’ve selected six other overdrives that do a similar job and set about 50 minutes of comparing them to the KOT.
    We chose these pedals because we have experience of them / have them to hand. There are of course others, but we need to keep things manageable!


    Here are some timings to help you navigate this long video…

    KOT intro, background & explanation 2:44

    KOT sound demo 8.00 - 11:00

    “Todays pedals are…” 11:45

    Lovepedal Amp Eleven (from 12:35)

    Tone City King Of Blues (from 19:10)
    Thanks to Andertons Music for lending us this and the Full-Drive 3

    Fulltone Full-Drive 3 (from 21:53)

    T-Rex Møller 2 (from 28:28)

    J Rockett Tim Pierce Signature (from 32:32) The GoPro pedal cam dies part way through – sorry!

    Lazy J Cruiser Deuce (from 35:37)

    “Is there a pedal that sounds exactly like the King Of Tone?” (from 39:36)

    Fun with the Gretsch 6118T-LIV Players Edition Anniversary and all the pedals (from 42:54, playing at 44:13)
    And yes, Mick says “Brigsby”. Sorry about that.


    In this video, Mick is playing his Fender American Vintage ’62 Stratocaster. Daniel is playing his Gibson Custom 1958 Les Paul Standard and a Gretsch 6118T-LIV Players Edition Anniversary.

    Amps are a Fender Super Reverb reissue with 4x10-inch Jensen P10R speakers and a Mallard 18-watt Marshall clone on a Marshall 2061cx 2x12 cab with Celestion G12H Anniversary speakers. Both amps are running all the time.

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

    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?
    Enjoy the video…

    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 – Introduction To Auto Wah & Envelope Filters

    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.

    Are You Dumble? Seven of the best D-style pedals. And a Boss BD-2…

    52:49

    PLEASE NOTE: From January 2016, we have moved. We are now here…

    Please subscribe to the That Pedal Show dedicated channel.

    Good morrow fine people! If you want to skip the jibber-jabber, the initial pedal comparisons begin at 14:30.

    If you're in for the long haul, however…

    Brace yourselves, because in this episode Daniel and Mick dive fearlessly into the murky waters of Dumble legend. And it’s a long one, so grab a beverage and make yourself comfortable.

    Played by many of the world’s most respected, toneful and tasteful players, a Dumble Overdrive Special amplifier is as rare as it is magical. What do they sound like? Frankly, who the hell knows because only a select few have ever been granted exclusive passage to the real heart of Dumbledom. So we’re borrowing a Fuchs Overdrive Supreme and standing on the metaphorical drawbridge.

    Nevertheless, if you listen to records of your Dumble-playing heroes or you’ve seen them live, you’ll know those amps have given voice to some of the best guitar sounds – yes – ever. Can a pedal possibly capture that magic? Well, perhaps some of it, hence our petite videoette this very day.

    The pedals we’re listening to are:

    Mad Professor Simble
    Amplified Nation Big Bloom
    J Rockett The Dude
    Wampler Euphoria
    Tanabe Dumkudo
    Custom Tones Ethos Overdrive
    Van Weelden Royal Overdrive

    And just for good fun, a Boss BD-2 Blues Driver linked up with a Boss GE-7 Graphic EQ

    After we’ve had a quick listen to the Fuchs Overdrive Supreme, we play all the pedals through a Victory V40 head and 2x12 cabinet with Celestion G12H-65 Creambacks. And talk a lot.

    Guitars are: Fender American Vintage ’62 Stratocaster. Fender Custom Shop ’63 Telecaster, Gibson Custom 1958 Les Paul Standard, Collings SoCo, 1961 Gibson Les Paul Junior (SG).

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

    Big thanks to Andertons Music for the Royal Overdrive; Jason Sidwell of Guitar Techniques for the Dumkudo and Ethos and Simon at Rocky Road for the Simble. Also to Sir Mitchell Of Keenshire for the Fuchs. Somebody leant us the Big Bloom too – credit when we know who it was!

    Yes We Do Like Transistor Amps #1: Boss & BluGuitar – That Pedal Show

    1:16:39

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

    'Interesting bits and go-to sections’ timings below.

    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!

    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

    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 – 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).
    Enjoy the video!

    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.

    Doctor Guitar Episode 38 - Fender Pro Junior

    20:55

    In this episode I show you another small amp that I use a lot in the studio, because it can get really nasty, but it's not too loud!

    It's a great sounding amp with a reasonable 15 watts. Super simple to use due to its volume and tone layout.

    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…

    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 – Classic Fuzz Tones: Where To Begin?

    35:08

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

    In this episode Daniel and Mick run through the main families of vintage-inspired fuzz pedals, albeit re-imagined through modern brands’ offerings. The (Gary Hurst/Sola Sound) Tone Bender, (Dallas-Arbiter) Fuzz Face and (Electro-Harmonix) Big Muff are the cornerstones of classic fuzz, so we take a whistle-stop tour through their basic characteristics, via some more modern pedals.
    Please consider this as the beginning of a journey, because there are so many variants within these classics, let alone the myriad other vintage and modern fuzzes. But we have to start somewhere, so let's start here…

    Yes We Do Like Transistor Amps #2: Quilter & BluGuitar Wet-Dry With A HRD – That Pedal Show

    58:10

    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’ timings below.

    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:

    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!

    That Pedal Show – Get More From Your Fender Hot Rod Deluxe Amp

    47:47

    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 video we take a look at – and a listen to – the near-ubiquitous Fender Hot Rod Deluxe guitar amp. It’s among the most successful and widely used guitar amps of all time, not least as a great sounding ‘pedal platform’ in the opinions of many.
    We begin by taking a look at its main features and sounds, before moving on to how it works with some classic overdrive and distortion types. We then take a brief sojourn into the world of feeding the effects loop return (power amp in) with external valve preamps, before heading back to a more conventional set up and listening to a couple of alternative speaker choices.
    It’s a superbly capable amp that a ton of people own. So let’s get in to it…

    That Pedal Show – Real Binson Echorec vs Catalinbread, Boonar & Echosex

    41:21

    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 the best of the Echorec-emulating modern delay pedals with a genuine Binson Echorec, model PE603T c1969, ish. MASSIVE thanks to Tony at Sound Gas for loaning us the Echorec and Echosex.

    The Echorec was an analogue magnetic drum echo unit (as opposed to tape), made by Italian company, Binson. There were a number of (very) different models from the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s, made most famous by both Hank Marvin and of course Pink Floyd.

    The Echorec (and indeed each of the other pedals), is running in one of TheGigRig G2’s loops, straight into the front of the amps.

    A NOTE ON BACKGROUND NOISE: At around 3:18 we switch on the Echorec for the first time. You’ll notice lots of background noise, that then disappears when we play. This is because our voice microphone (placed just above our heads) is set to a very loud level, with added compression that makes the background noise seem much worse than it is.
    When we are playing however, the voice mic is muted (it would go into massive distortion if hit with the guitar amps), so when we are playing you are only hearing the mics on the guitar cabs and the stereo X-Y in the room. There is no noise reduction or other jiggery pokery going on anywhere.

    Right, let’s get to it…

    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…

    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 – Yuletide Special 2017: 10 Top Products, 12 Tips & Highlights Of The Year!

    47:14

    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.


    This episode is a little bit like A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, but without much of the sombre undertone or depth of character. The Ghost Of That Pedal Show Past looks back on our highlights of 2017. The Ghost Of TPS Present Considers Our Favourite Pedals Of The Year while The Ghost Of Christmas Future… oh lordy, even I’m bored of this analogy now. Mick here, by the way. I played Scrooge in our school play when I was 11 years old. Not quite as good as Michael Caine in The Muppets Christmas Carol, but I hadn’t done Zulu or The Italian Job by then.
    Anyway… we also offer you The 12 Tips Of FXMas, gathered like yuletide logs for the burning fire of your souls. Our soles, too.

    Ahem. Okay, seriously now, we want to wish everyone a happy and peaceful Christmas/holiday season/whatever it is you do, and offer our heartfelt thanks to everyone who’s watched, commented, bought a T-shirt, a pedal and/or all that jazz. It’s been an astonishing year for us, and we can’t wait to get into 2018 and ask a whole load of better questions. More better questions. More better. More!
    It’s late. Time for a drink and/or some sleep.
    Enjoy the video…

    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.

    Chris Buck At TPS – In Better Resolution – That Pedal Show

    1:6:50

    We uploaded a video a couple of weeks back that wouldn't process past 360p. Apologies.
    We went back and forth, tried to reupload, etc etc etc.

    And we finally found something that works, so here it is. It's the same as the other video, just in better resolution. (But still no 4k - go figure, as the process is EXACTLY the same for all our other vids).


    In this episode we are delighted to welcome the super talented, humorous and humble Chris Buck to the show. Chris is a wonderful guitar player from South Wales, UK, whose #1 music project is his band, Buck & Evans.
    Chris takes us through his pedalboard that’s most notable for the sheer number of similar-ish overdrives on there! We get an insight into his playing style and technique not to mention a cheeky little Strat/Strat/Strat/Silver Sky comparison.
    Massive thanks to Chris for taking the time to come and hang at Schwangri-La. Please check him out on all the usual social meedja!

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

    58:33

    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 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…

    That Pedal Show – Matt Schofield New Pedalboard Build

    25:53

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


    In this video, Dan has a couple of hours to put a new pedalboard together for our good friend Matt Schofield… then deliver it to soundcheck ready for the gig that same night.

    The aim of this build was to keep Matt's pedals the same as on his previous board, but improve on the signal clarity and switching convenience. Same pedals, but a completely different experience? Let's see…


    The slightly longer story…
    Matt joined us on That Pedal Show for an episode that aired 13 July 2017 and you can watch that here:
    During the filming for that video, he floored us with his incredible tone and playing: big volume, amazing dynamics and astonishing feel. However… Matt’s board had definitely seen better days, suffering some fairly major buzz and hum issues and no doubt robbing him of some tone and signal. What’s a pedalboard builder to do?

    Dan offered to improve things for Matt, so we convened at HQ one Saturday lunchtime and started work on a new board. By 4:30pm we were at the venue in Bristol ready to go.
    Matt had decided that a full-on G2-based rig was more than he needed, given that he only uses a small number of pedals and rarely uses combinations of anything other than one delay and one overdrive. However, given the tone/signal loss he was currently experiencing, there was clearly a need for some independent true-bypass loop switching. QuarterMaster QMX was obviously the way to go.

    You can see the whole build process in the video, and we’re pleased to say that since Matt returned back to the US, Dan has had a couple of lovely messages saying how much things have improved; more fidelity, dynamics and – yes – more tone making it to the amp!

    That Pedal Show – Using Drive & Preamp Pedals In Your Amp FX Loop

    43:49

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

    In this episode Daniel and Mick explore the possibilities of using drives, boosts and preamps directly into your amplifier’s effects loop. For most amps, that means bypassing the front end (preamp) of the amplifier entirely and just hitting the power section from your pedalboard. Why would you want to do that? Well, you might not! But there are two scenarios in which we could see this working well…

    First, let’s say that you have an amp that you like but don’t love. The cost of upgrading to something ‘better’ is too high, so you want to inject some new life and sounds into the old beast. This is worth trying.
    Second, maybe you’re doing a lot of travelling and have to deal with rented amps. It’s very often a Fender Hot Rod, Twin or Marshall DSL, for example. By bypassing the amp’s front end in this way and just hitting the power section from your board, you maintain a little extra control of your sound. Interesting? Let’s see shall we…

    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…

    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…

    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
    11:10 The ‘Freeze’ function on the Strymon BigSky
    11:59 Summary
    14:00 What’s the minimalist approach?
    15:25 Affordable alternatives
