Budget Guitar Rig Challenge – Dan Vs Mick: That Pedal Show

Budget Guitar Rig Challenge – Dan Vs Mick: That Pedal Show

December 20, 2019

We challenge each other to put together a whole guitar rig on a small budget – one guitar, one amp and three pedals on a board. What do we choose and who wins?

Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.

Yep, it’s come to this. We’ve finally succumbed to the ravages of clickbait-driven populist drivel… and made a very long, discursive, in-depth video again. Ha! But at least this one features some cheap gear for a change. ‘Don’t you mean ‘affordable’, Michael?’ No, we mean CHEAP. Cheaper than chips. The cheapest chips in town. Erm, and some slightly less cheap and much tastier ones too.
There are some exceptional sounds today, and some to which we take exception. There’s a lot of hiss, a bit of pish but I’ve run out of alliterative ideas so I’ll finish with tish, fish McNish.
Come on, make a wish.

Final scores on the doors were:
Mick’s rig: £1,034 – not £900 like he said at the end of the video
Dan’s rig: £466 – not £360 like he said at the end of the video.

Enjoy the episode!

Pedal Order, Before Or After Drive? - That Pedal Show

Pedal Order, Before Or After Drive? - That Pedal Show

December 13, 2019

This is the audio from our video here: https://youtu.be/gAo-1Fvbals

Where should you place your reverb, delay and modulation effects pedals in relation to overdrive and distortion? We look at the options to help you decide.

Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.

In this episode we challenge the commonly accepted 'standard' pedal order and try some alternatives. We are looking specifically at delay, reverb and modulation: how they react before and after overdrive in your signal chain. As we discover, some of these pedal order changes bring subtle results… while others are very radical.

Enjoy the episode!

Greg Koch Plunders TPS!

Greg Koch Plunders TPS!

December 6, 2019

This is the audio from our video here: 

Greg Koch visits That Pedal Show with the Koch Marshall Trio band for jams and banter. We also demo his signature Reverend Gristlemaster guitar, The Greg Koch amp and of course the Gristle King pedal. Get ready for a ride of truly savage tomfoolery!

Ah, Greg Koch. Gregory Kochery. The Gristlemeister, Sasquatch of six-string savagery. Do you dig it? Well we dig it to epic new levels in this video as our old chum finally descends on That Pedal Show to split our sides with tales of epic guitar heroism… and a lot of hard work and frankly idiotic compulsion for this thing we loosely call ‘music’.
Greg tells us all about his beginnings as a pro musician, before we get into the nitty-gritty on his signature Reverend guitar, Koch amp and Gristle King pedal.

And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, we are thrilled to welcome Koch Marshall Trio: Toby Lee Marshall on organ, and Gary Koehler on drums for renditions of tracks The Tulsa Tussle, Unrepentant and Sweet Tea. Even Dan and I get in on the action for some jammage.
Do we dig it?
Enjoy!
