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

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

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

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

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?

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!
