Strymon Iridium – That Pedal Show

Strymon Iridium – That Pedal Show

November 15, 2019

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

EL84 Amp Magic: Vox, Matchless and Victory

November 8, 2019

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

November 5, 2019

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.

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

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

November 1, 2019

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.

Big thanks to Damian from Reunion Blues for his unending help, friendship and wonderful Continental Voyager gigbags! https://dynamicmusicdistribution.co.uk/collections/reunion-blues-continental-voyager-1/products/rb-continental-voyager

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

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

October 29, 2019

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

Matt Schofield 2019 & The TPS Band! - That Pedal Show

October 18, 2019

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.

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

Fulltone OCD V1.7, V2 and CS-GE

October 11, 2019

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…

Enjoy the episode!

Walrus Audio At That Pedal Show

Walrus Audio At That Pedal Show

October 4, 2019

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

Phil X On Playing With Attitude – Dan’s Vlog

October 1, 2019

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
