Let's Build A Pedalboard Pt. 1

We love pedals, that goes without saying. And, being the Type A player I am, I like my pedals to be organized and configured in a way that provides the versatility in sound that I’m looking for in a straightforward manner. Additionally, depending on the type of music I plan on playing, the pedal selection can vary from gig to gig. For example, if I’m playing a blues gig, a heavy metal distortion probably wouldn’t be the best choice for tones. In the spirit of sharing some thoughts and concepts with you, we present to you the start of a...

Deep Trip Pedals - Tres Fuzz, Tres Tone

We recently brought in Deep Trip pedals from Brazil. We found them at this years’ Winter NAMM show and have been patiently waiting for their arrival ever since placing our initial order. Even from the noisy showroom floor, we could hear something different in these pedals. They looked great, were ruggedly constructed, and had a sound that was blissfully retro in both tone and vibe. Little did we know that US customers were also anxiously waiting for Deep Trip to land in the US. ThePedalGuy brought in a modest amount of inventory to help start the excitement but sold through...

Let's face it, as much as we love that amp/cabinet sound, it's always a challenge to schlep them around town for gigs.

The good news is that now it's quite possible to achieve this with the Hotone Nano amps and the DigiTech...

Two Delay's are Better Than One

The delay pedal is a pure addiction as it can add textures and soundscapes to any song, no matter the style. It's not uncommon to see players with two delay pedals on their board, one for long lasting delays and one for slapback/early reflections.   Another interesting way to use two delay pedals would be simultaneously where the reflections of one delay pedal feeds into the second pedal offering very interesting and creative rhythmic sounds. So many hits songs have include that dual delay sound, including U2's epic "Where The Streets Have No Name". Revisit that classic and tell me you don't...

Getting ThePedalGuy Amp/Cabinet Sound

If there's one thing you can count on, is that when we produce a video for our site, we take great care in trying to deliver the most accurate audio examples that we can. Having said that, we will always strive to "keep it real" by making sure that the amp we use for the video content being created is a real amp. Certainly there are times where we will use modeled amps, such as the HeadRush, which is a modeling marvel. Other than that, it's Au Natural.  Aside from the amp, a vital component to "ThePedalGuy" sound is a speaker...
