Getting To Know The Orange OR15 Guitar Amp

May 18, 2018

In this episode we plug in the Orange OR15 for the first time to see what we can learn. Dan has very limited experience of Orange amps; I have a little more – Mick here – but we’re essentially starting from scratch.

This is audio taken from our YouTube video of Friday 18 May 2018 that you can watch here. https://youtu.be/bYthDmw9yqI

CORRECTION: Mick says Orange Music started in Charing Cross Road, London in the late 1960s.
It actually began in New Compton St in 1968 – Happy 50th Anniversary to Cliff and everyone at Orange!

Even if you don’t have an OR15 there are some goodly amp basics in this episode, for example the relationship between gain, master and headroom at 7:44 and delays used in the front or in the loop at 15:02. Full timings below…
Apart from all that, we use a selection of common gain types and a new pedal or two to get some tones going. We hope this kind of approach will encourage you to try stuff and raise some questions that will help you with this specific amp and indeed others that might share common features.
Now, we managed to avoid the 7-watt mode entirely. It wasn’t exactly intentional, although may be influenced by the fact that we tend not to use them in any amps. Which doesn’t mean it doesn’t sound good - apologies for the omission. In 7-watt mode you simply get less headroom and more power amp overdrive at lower levels. It’s still plenty loud!

Dan & Mick’s 5-Drink German Podcast From TGU18

May 17, 2018

Willkommen to Thomann Gear University 2018! 

We've been invited to Germany by the nice people at Thomann whom you can visit here. http://bit.ly/2wKT3g3

Busses, trains, aeroplanes... lost baggage. But we arrived, and when we arrived we found that the equally nice people at Shure had left us an MV88 i-Mic thingythang as a welcome gift. Let's see if it works. 

So, we hit Bamburg with an iPhone and the mic, and this is what happened. Cheers y'all. 

Guten tag!

Graham Coxon Extra Bits & An Alternative Pedalboard

May 15, 2018

An edit of some extra bits we recorded when Graham Coxon came to visit for the main video in March 2018.

This is the audio from a video on our YouTube channel from May 15 2018.  https://youtu.be/aYN_VIbLkKw

The original, full-length video is here: https://youtu.be/_ijyk89uOCI Also available as a podcast further down our playlist.

One of the reasons for Graham’s visit was that he wanted Dan to put together a separate pedalboard that he could use for various creative projects: he wanted something portable but versatile; different but familiar; capable of inspiration over complication.
So this episode comprises a quick flick through that board as Graham plugs in for the first time, interspersed with some Coxon gems as you would rightly expect. It’s not a full episode per sé, but loads of people have asked for some extra footage from the day. So here it is…

We are massively grateful to Graham for giving us his time and sharing his insight and experience – what a privilege! Please check out www.grahamcoxon.com and sign up to his newsletter to find out what’s going on in his world.

Meantime, enjoy the episode…

Great Vox AC30 Tones With Dan’s Pedalboard

May 11, 2018

Dan reflects on his recent reconnection with his vintage Vox AC30, following some gig and recording preparation with his band Tin Spirits.

This is the audio from our YouTube show, 11 May 2018 that you can watch here: https://youtu.be/c1St2e263cQ

Dan is using the AC30 connected to a Fryette Power Station to provide some attenuation, which helps put the amp in a sweet spot in terms of tone, dynamics and feel… but without excessive volume.
Using that as the base tone, we go through his current selection of boosts, OD and fuzz to get all kinds of drive textures, throwing in some modulation and ambience for good measure.
Dan is using the AC30 in its (modded) EF86 channel.
Enjoy the episode!

No Speakers! Can We Go Direct & Enjoy It?

May 4, 2018

Our hand is forced. Regular viewers will know that we love our valve amps. Transformers, speakers, glowing tubes… all of that stuff that has made the best guitar sounds of all time, or at least as far as we’re concerned. BUT! The hammer has come down. We have to go direct.

This episode is the audio from our YouTube video of 04 May 2018: https://youtu.be/8XfLz5cLpAc

We’ve finally sent our neighbours over the edge and That Pedal Shed is to be no more. We’ve been silenced. So do we lose the rest of a rare (and bloomin' expensive) filming day, or do we try something else?As it happens we have the Mooer Radar on hand – a digital, IR-based speaker simulator among other talents. Let’s hit it with our Plexi and see what we think. In addition, we have a BluGuitar AMP1 and BlueBox combination. How about we go direct to our audio interface, put on the ol’ cans and see if we can make the best of it.
What unfolds is partly predictable, partly surprising, and partly positive that we might delve into this again one day. That was the surprising part.

Enjoy the video – it is one of the last you’ll ever see from That Pedal Shed. Boo and indeed hoo! (But don’t worry, we have a new, bigger and better home to go to.)

The Great Blindfold Listening Test #1

May 1, 2018

Oh blimey – you’re either going to love this or hate it. We’re not big fans of the blind test for many, many reasons. However, we thought it was about time we (you) engaged in one. So here we go…

This is the audio from our YouTube video from May 1 2018. https://youtu.be/NE459bRLgZY

Grab a pen and paper. The test starts at 1:28 and there are 10 sounds for you to identify that contain…
• Guitar?
• Amp?
• Pedal 1?
• Pedal 2?

Thoughts On P90 Pickups & Humbucker Comparisons

April 27, 2018

We take a gentle stroll down the path of P90 pickups. We found ourselves in the lucky position of having a bunch of wonderful P90-equipped guitars at our disposal, so what better excuse to plug ’em in and have a listen next to some similar guitars that use humbuckers.

This audio is taken from our YouTube video, Friday 27 April 2018, https://youtu.be/KZUobUDVAD0

As always with us, this isn’t a scientific comparison, and yes the guitars have some significant differences. Regular viewers will know that we’re more interested in the variables than the similarities… because that’s real life!

We plug in all kinds of guitars with different levels of gain and have a listen. Simple as that – please enjoy the episode…

Pick’N'Mix – Laney LA30BL, Supro Tremolo, ZVEX BOR, Wampler Reflection, BCC Iommi TI Boost

April 26, 2018

This is Dan’N’Mick’s Pick’N’Mix where we feature four (or five) pedals (and amps) 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!

This episode first aired as a YouTube video, 10 April 2018. https://youtu.be/97TShWATTDk

There’s a strong Laney theme in this episode, not least because the splendid people there offered us a first look at the new-for-2018 LA30BL. Dan got all fizzy about this when we saw it at NAMM back in January 2018. And it would be entirely rude to play it without the Black Country Customs TI Booster, right?
But the fun doesn’t stop there. ZVEX’s Box Of Rock is beloved of so many people. A so-say ‘JTM45 in a box’, it’s high time it got an airing on TPS. We’re also a-wobblin’ and a-shimmerin’ thanks to Supro’s Tremolo – with the all-important Harmonic mode – and the new Reflection Reverb from Wampler.
Enjoy the video…
