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!

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…

Roland Space Echoes, Dimension D&C… And Matt Schofield!

May 25, 2018

In this episode we find ourselves at the Thomann Gear University 2018. It was an event held at the retail giant’s headquarters and store in Germany, where a bunch of us descended for a few days to hang out and make video. We were given the run of the store – literally anything we wanted…

So Dan and I found two blokes from Boss who came armed with a couple of discontinued old gems. Of course.

First we plug in the sweetest Roland RE-201 Space Echo we’ve ever seen or heard, and compare it to the current Boss RE-20. Then we move on to something absolutely unique: the Boss Dimension D and C devices, famed for their classic take on chorus. And then we bumped into Matt Schofield who had a theory about the Dimension D and Stevie Ray Vaughan…

What follows is what went down, so we hope you enjoy it.

Before that, a couple of apologies…

First, sorry the pedal cams aren’t better. It was a fast turnaround time with limited options, so we did what we could.

Second, 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!

Sing! Sing! Sing! With Dan, Mick & Mary Spender

May 22, 2018

Well this is a bit different! We attended Thomann Gear University during May 2018 and bumped into a lot of friends old and new. One of our dear chums is Mary Spender – find her on YouTube here https://www.youtube.com/MarySpender – and among her many talents is her wonderful singing. So Dan and I decided to take a TPS-sized wrecking ball to that and ask her to sing with us!

This is the audio from our YouTube video of May 22 2018. Watch it here: https://youtu.be/6jvD1SiF4SY

What follows is more or less exactly as it happened, in the spirit of trying to get you to sing. Even if you’ve been telling yourself you can’t, you can.
Singing is great for the soul and it’ll make your life better, especially when you do it with other people. Sure, you absolutely will feel silly at first and you might not exactly be Aretha Franklin in the pipes department, but put some time into it and you’ll be amazed what you can achieve. If nothing else, it will really help your guitar playing too.
Now, importantly, this is purely designed to whet your singing whistle. We'd highly recommend hitting up a specialist site or channel if you're getting into singing for the first time – there are lots out there!

So as we say, slightly off the beaten track for us, but, erm, we were in Germany. And some other things. There is much more to come from our time at TGU over coming weeks.

MASSIVE thanks to the good people of Thomann who put this whole event on. And of course to Mary for being a good sport. Check out the various #TGU18 hashtags on social media and Thomann’s own YouTube channel for much more stuff.
Enjoy the episode!

Pedals in this episode…
There are no pedals in this episode, but there are acoustic guitars and an teeny-tiny acoustic bass…
• Gibson J-45 Vintage 2018
• Martin D-18
• Ortega Lizzy Bass. We think. Going into the Morgan, possibly.

- I like that bass! 2:30
- Singing gets you gigs: 3:00

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!

Please enjoy the video…

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!
