Gain Pedals In Parallel – That Pedal Show

Gain Pedals In Parallel – That Pedal Show

August 30, 2019

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/7ACGOxWspeA

In this episode we explore the useful and inspiring possibilities offered by parallel gain staging… among various other tangential observances. Most of us are familiar with series signal chains because that’s what happens when you connect any two pedals together: one flows into the other. Parallel is where the signal is split before two effects, then hits them separately and is mixed back together again afterwards. You might think that combining two pedals would produce the same results however you connect them. Well, not so, as we discover.

For anyone asking how to combine two pedals in parallel and what you might need to do so…
The Wetter Box by TheGigRig can do this. We’re not sure about other stuff, but whatever you choose, you need to be able to split the signal before the two devices you want to mix in parallel… then mix them together again afterwards.

Enjoy the episode!

Union T&T, TC Hall Of Fame 2×4, Fender MTG, Diamond Vibrato

Union T&T, TC Hall Of Fame 2×4, Fender MTG, Diamond Vibrato

August 28, 2019

This is the audio from our video here:

This is Dan’N’Mick’s Pick’N’Mix where we feature four pedals 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! Enjoy…

PLEASE NOTE: We recently changed the PnM format to include jamming/backing tracks. This one was filmed before that… and then got delayed because TC delayed the release of the Flashback 2 x 4. So that’s why there’s no backing track and/or jamming. All future PnMs will have backing tracks. And we’re renaming them Pedal Jams.

Another bit of interesting info is that this was the day that we decided we didn’t need two mics on the cabs any more. New Sontronics Delta 2 ribbon mics arrived. We used them and took the Neumanns out of the mix. We had the Neumanns there before to balance out whatever other mics we were using. The Delta 2s sound great on their own.

Meantime, enjoy the episode!

Solo Tones: Thoughts On Gain, EQ & Audibility - That Pedal Show

Solo Tones: Thoughts On Gain, EQ & Audibility - That Pedal Show

August 25, 2019

This is the audio from our vide here: 

In this episode we stumble around a general discussion on being heard when playing solos. A friend of Dan’s had asked him what he needed to think about tonally when starting to play guitar solos: it sparked an idea for a show.

Many of the concepts we touch on here have been covered in previous episodes, but they’re always worth a re-look for the already-initiated and close to invaluable for anyone new to the subject. Gain, EQ, volume… and a bit on delay, rounded up with five tips for better solo tones.
Enjoy the episode!

Boss Waza Tube Amp Expander & UAD OX – That Pedal Show

Boss Waza Tube Amp Expander & UAD OX – That Pedal Show

August 16, 2019

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/xWx9yqWmV5o

In this episode we take our first long look at – and listen to – the new-for-2019 Boss Waza Tube Amp Expander, next to the already established Universal Audio OX Amp Top Box.
Both are designed to offer much increased functionality and low-volume usability/direct recording potential for your existing valve amplifier. As we discuss, however, while they’re ostensibly pitched head-to-head there are nonetheless some significant differences that may make your decision much easier, should you be in the market for such a beast.
No, it’s not a straight A/B comparison using exactly the same amps and guitars – as we said they do different things – it’s more of a general overview of their main functions and features and associated tagentalities and observationalisations.
We start by hearing the straight attenuation capabilities before heading for the direct sounds.

Enjoy the episode!

10 Tone Ideas For Rhythm Guitar

10 Tone Ideas For Rhythm Guitar

August 9, 2019

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/lEsnMNK6F68

Are you struggling for somewhere to sit in the mix? Are you and the other guitar player clashing sonically and/or harmonically? If so, young Daniel and I offer up these 10 ideas for you try when playing ‘rhythm’ guitar.
As we have opined many times, ‘rhythm’ guitar is a bit of a catch-all term. To us they're just parts in songs, nevertheless this show isn’t about how to nail your Nile Rodgers funk chops, or achieve seamless synchronicity like Malcolm and Angus. Moreover it’s about some tonal suggestions that will bring interest and separation to parts in a song. We talk about volume, EQ, modulation and delay for the most part, to act as springboards for your own perfect dive into the music. Wow, that was cheesy.

If you like backing track in this episode you can buy it at That Pedal Show Store.

Dan’s Pedalboard 2019 – That Pedal Show

Dan’s Pedalboard 2019 – That Pedal Show

August 2, 2019

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/KypcmoEpiw0

Today we document Dan’s monster pedalboard build for 2019. It’s been in the works for some time and has changed much along the way… and will continue to change, such is the nature of what we do. It's a cornucopia of gain stacking textures, enhanced with plenty of delay, reverb and modulations. Ostensibly wet-dry, it’s actually dual mono wet - different delays and mods coming out of each side.
