Victory, Kingsley & Origin Preamp Pedals

September 21, 2018

This is the audio from our video posted here:

 

In this episode we take a look at three professional quality pedal preamps capable of Marshall ‘plexi’-type tones. That term of course means many things to many people so we don’t spend too long worrying about it… but we do spend absolutely bloomin’ ages listening to the new V4 The Sheriff pedal from Victory, our old favourite Kingsley Constable V2 and the Origin Effects Revival Drive.

One key difference between a pedal preamp and a 'normal' OD pedal is the way they are designed to be used. Typically a preamp has much more output and EQ scope and is therefore able to feed straight into a power amp or FX loop return, essentially adding a whole alternative front end to your amp/board/recording setup. Most 'normal' pedals don't sound at their best used that way and perform better in conjunction with the front end of your amp. Which is great when you love your amp... but if you don't, or want something entirely different, a whole separate preamp could be the answer.

Whether they actually sound like a Marshall Plexi is a moot point. Much more interesting is the depth and range of their sounds when hitting the power section of your favourite amp. Thus, we hook up the trusty Fender Hot Rod Deluxe and work our way through a bunch of guitars.

This is a really, really long video – we admit that Dan and I take way too long getting to the point here, even for us. So we’re making some new rules about video length from now on. Nevertheless, if you use the interesting bits and go-to sections information below, you can get some of your life back. Maybe. Better still, go and find somebody you like and spend real human time with them. It really is better than watching YouTube.

Plugged-In Acoustic 101

September 14, 2018

We delve into the world of amplified acoustic guitars.

This is the audio from the video published here: https://youtu.be/ZC_ZwbS2j5Q

It’s a problem area for literally anyone who plays live with the ol’ flattop. Dan and I both do our fair share of acoustic gigs so we thought we’d start looking at some basics on the show.
We start off by reminding you what an acoustic guitar kinda/sorta sounds like with a mic in front of it, before heading into the world of plugging in via a PA system and/or acoustic guitar amplifier. We also take a brief look at a couple of ‘pedals’, more of which in part 2.

Apology time: I make THREE SCHOOLBOY ERRORS during the show (Mick here)…
I call the non-cutaway Martin a 000-18E. It is in fact an OM-18E - links below.
I explain that a piezo pickup is a piezo-electric transducer. And then like a total dumbass call it an electro-magnetic device. Which of course it isn’t. Piezo-electric transducers use pressure to create a current. Electro-magnetic pickups uses a magnet and a coil. Sorry - brain-fry!
I call the pickup system in the Martin guitars an LR Baggs Lyric. It is in fact an LR BAGGS ANTHEM (link below).

Apologies all round - brain trying to do too many things at once.

Apart from all that, please enjoy the episode!

Danish Pete Invades TPS!

September 7, 2018

We welcome the wonderful, the inimitable, and the very Danish Peter Honoré to the show.

This is the audio from our YouTube video here: https://youtu.be/faSwnZmlqes

Peter is known and loved by countless YouTube viewers across the globe from his work on Andertons TV. But he did plenty of interesting, real musician stuff before that too – if you want some history on this Great Dane (woof) watch this: https://youtu.be/CEqKWhR-N-w

In this video Peter talks about his collaboration with Thorpy Pedals on The Dane Overdrive & Booster, as well as entering into a little Tele-off with Dan’s pair of pickin’ planks.

Yes, we could have gone on much longer… but there will be more when we build Peter’s pedalboard. In the meantime, please enjoy the episode!

Please note this is Mick’s board not Peter’s… but with The Dane on it!
We still haven’t built Peter’s board. That will happen at some point.

Joey Landreth & Kirk Fletcher Take Over TPS!

August 31, 2018

The fantastic Joey Landreth and Kirk Fletcher just happened to be in our locale on the same day...

This is audio from our YouTube video here: https://youtu.be/WspUxDSoDu0

Joey was getting ready for his September 2018 UK tour and Kirk is preparing to release a new album on October 19 called Hold On. So we sat them on the stools, turned on the cameras and asked them to do what comes naturally.

MASSIVE thanks to them both for such a wonderful day and enough inspiration to last a lifetime - these guys are simply tremendous humans.

Colorsound Power Boost-Type Pedals & Hiwatt Custom 100 DR103

August 24, 2018

Today’s show was one of those once-in-a-lifetime lightbulb moments. It aired on YouTube as a video: https://youtu.be/KKvFcPc8v-4

Dan had long been telling me about ‘Power Boost’ pedals... but having never sat down and plugged one in properly, I was none the wiser. A total blank spot of guitar history. We would do a show. One day. 

It wasn’t until Dan did an eight-hour round-trip drive to pick up an original 1972 Hiwatt Custom 100 DR103 and a bunch of Colorsound Power Boost-inspired pedals – including an original – that the penny was able to drop. And boy did it drop, for him as much as me.
These are genuinely some of the most inspiring, most moving, most thoroughly rock’n’roll sounds we’ve ever mustered from these four walls.

Massive thanks to Chris at www.custompedalboards.co.uk for the loan of the pedals and of course the unbelievable Hiwatt. The morning after filming, we hit Reverb.com and bought one. Life seems unthinkable without one at this point.

Please enjoy the episode…

Origin Effects Revival Drive – What Do We Think?

August 17, 2018

Well well well. When somebody brings out an overdrive pedal that isn’t an overdrive pedal… //doesn’t// call it an amp in a box when it’s probably the best one we’ve heard to date… //and// charges a pretty penny to behold its charms, you can expect us to sit up.

This is the audio from our video of 17 Aug 2018 that you can watch here: https://youtu.be/y9aZ83_RVjE

So yes it’s complex.Yes it is amp like. And yes it’s an overdrive pedal for people whoo don’t like overdrive pedals. But is it the hands-down, bottom-up no-brainer purchase that we should all make?
Nope. This puppy is dividing opinion good and proper.
So what about us?

Chris Buck Visits TPS

August 10, 2018

We are delighted to welcome the super talented, humorous and humble Chris Buck to the show.

This is the audioo from the YouTube show 10 Aug 2018: https://youtu.be/e6_54fhe9qw

Chris is a wonderful guitar player from South Wales, UK, whose #1 music project is his band, Buck & Evans. http://www.buckandevans.com/
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!
