Pick’N'Mix: Phonkify, Red Velvet Fuzz, Nigel, Delay Workstation

July 10, 2018

This is Dan’N’Mick’s Pick’N’Mix from Tuesday 10 July 2018. Watch the video here: https://youtu.be/GGZ-Np7V4fk 

We start funky with the Tsakalis Audio Works Phonkify – a super versatile envelope filter / octave with nasty and smooth modes. It also has an input for an expression pedal, but we managed to miss that. It would control the frequency range of the of the envelope, giving you wah-like control. Y'know, if you actually plugged it in.
The Chase Tone ’68 Red Velvet Fuzz is a unique BC183 silicon fuzz inspired by that magic era. Extra controls up top mean it’s way more versatile than a traditional fuzz face.
Lounsberry pedals is a new name to us, so we check out the Nigel – a harmonic slab of goodly rock overdrive for which Dan goes all gooey. And finally, how it’s taken us so long to get the Keeley Delay Workstation on the show is anyone’s guess. A dual pedal with 8 different delays and reverbs combinable in a whole bunch of useful ways. A no-brainer one-stop delay and reverb for minimalists who nevertheless want a bit of versatility. Let’s plug in!
Enjoy the video…

Six Cool New(Ish) Overdrives

July 6, 2018

Oh no! Not //more// overdrive pedals surely?! You better believe it – it can be a lifetime’s work to find just the right one and boy are we on that journey. So for no other reason than we felt like it, we assembled six cool new (ish) things and took a swing at them.

 

This is the audio from our YouTube video of July 6 2018.

 

In an unusual departure from the norm, what follows is some extra info that we either skirted over or didn’t know in the video. It’s a double-edged sword, diving too deeply into a company’s marketing materials before you plug in and play. Dan and I usually prefer the open-minded ‘what do we actually hear?’ approach, which can and does lead to some reactions that don’t always chime with the official hymnsheet. If we get stuff wrong, we fess up and put it right in a later video. With that in mind…

 

The Terry White Rabbit Deluxe //really// deserves more attention from us. For whatever reason we were struggling to get it to sit with the amps today in terms of level and dynamic. That underlines its position as a ‘preamp / line driver’ kind of thing, similar to what you might expect from the JHS Colour Box and the like. It will reappear, almost certainly when we’re recording actual real music.

 

The Keeley Aria Compressor Drive also has the TRS jacks function like the D&M Drive to enable you to place each effect in different loops on your true bypass loop switcher. Cool!

 

The Free The Tone pedals are from FTT’s Integrated Series and celebrate the 15th Anniversary of Free The Tone. It’s worth a read of the FTT website where they explain how the pedal casing and materials have been chosen with tone in mind. Hence the heavyness that we spoke about, perhaps! Yuki and team are super serious about this stuff – we didn’t mean to be flippant about it. But hey, this is TPS after all.

They also features FTT’s latest evolution of the HTS Circuit, which is a unique take on a buffer circuit. Even Matt Schofield likes it, and that’s about as high an endorsement as you’ll find!

 

Greuter is definitely from Switzerland, not Austria! Sorry Sascha!

Settling In To The New Place: Mics, Dispersion & A Bit Of Jamming

June 29, 2018

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 dress as your ex-BFF to the hella-good-hair guy’s party. Only she can help you with that. We say take a mid-’50s D-18 and do a wicked Taylor Swift 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…

Wet Dry Wet On A Sensible Budget

June 22, 2018

This podcast is audio taken from our Friday YouTube video at https://youtu.be/PVJptMv-Imk

For our last show in That (Old) Pedal Shed (8 June 2018), we went nuts on a mega wet/dry/wet rig comprising all manner of unobtanium that came to a whopping £30k… or thereabouts. You can watch it here https://youtu.be/Pyyoe5R_U00
We had an overwhelming response to that video, and among the chorus of ‘oh my goodness it sounds amazing’ came a cry of ‘how the bejeeesus do we do that on a more mortal budget?’
Thus, Daniel and I got to work straight away in the That (New) Pedal Shed setting up a similarly inspried rig but with much more ‘normal’ stuff. Please note that we didn’t say ‘low budget’ so this isn’t about doing it as cheaply as possible. It’s about a ‘sensible’ budget using easily available, quality amps and pedals. It's still a pretty penny if you were to just go out and buy it all, but hopefully you have at least some of these things – or similar – at your disposal already!

That NEW Pedal Shed – Moving In

June 15, 2018

If you’re looking for useful information on guitar sounds, this is not the podcast for you!

What it is is a glimpse at what it’s taken to get TPS’s new headquarters up and running. Wow. It felt like we were never going to get here… and we very nearly didn’t! It’s been two solid weeks of long days and late nights, and I’m typing this very sentence some 17 minutes before the video is scheduled to go live at midday GMT+1. Which it probably won’t because YouTube is chewing on the processing. But all that aside…

We.re just about moved in to the new place. We threw the cameras and lights up an hour before filming… we finished building the shelves three hours before filming, so what you’re seeing is us sitting down and hitting record for the very first time.

Day one, episode one. Don’t judge us too harshly as we still have plenty of tweaking to do!

Awesome Wet/Dry/Wet Tones With Echorec & Space Echo

June 8, 2018

 

We thought we’d have a bit of fun and hook up the ultimate wet/dry/wet rig courtesy of three fantastic amplifiers, a couple of all-time classic echo devices and a handful of our favourite pedals.

No agenda, no real learning to be had, just some truly epic sounds and a bit of an emotional connection with the sheer tone!

Massive thanks to www.soundgas.com for supplying the RE-201 and Echorec 2. We might have accidentally bough the 201 as a moving in present to the new place. Oops!

Only One Guitar, One Amp And One Pedal?

June 1, 2018

What if we could only choose one guitar, one amp and one pedal?

Yes, 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…

TPS Pick’N'Mick: Mad Professor Twimble, Stone Deaf FX Syncopy & EarthQuaker Devices Pyramids

May 29, 2018

Welcome to Pick'N'Mix – today we have the Mad Professor Twimble, Stone Deaf FX Syncopy and Earthquaker Pyramids.

No, this is not our new place – we are deep in heart of Thomann Gear University, a gathering of like-minded gear nuts from across our little planet that took place in May 2018. We had a wonderful time and met some great new friends - thanks to everyone at www.thomann.de for putting it on!

Three apologies…
• First, sorry we didn’t spend longer on the Pyramids – we ran out of time! You can see more here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQiK2tSlTZ4
• Second, sorry the pedal cam isn’t better. It was a fast turnaround time with limited options, so we did what we could.
• Third, sorry about the clipping audio in places. We tended to play a little louder than the other TGU18 attendees and we caught the engineers a little off guard from time to time…. Nevertheless we thank them MASSIVELY for their help and diligence in what was an extremely hot and fast-moving environment with a whole slew of people in and out. They did a great job and we thank them deeply!

The audio itself. You’re hearing two guitar amps as the main mix (the Morgan and the Laney each through 112 cabs) plus each of those amps through a Universal Audio Ox (right) and a Two-Notes Torpedo Reload (left). The physical, mic’d 1x12 cabs are about 85 per cent of the mix. The Ox and the Reload are doing something approaching what our room mics usually do (sorta, kinda) to add a bit of spread. And yes, those are the ones that are clipping. See above.

Please enjoy the episode…
