That Pedal Show

Chris Buck Pedalboard Build - That Pedal Show

July 12, 2019

This is the audio from our video here:

In this episode we welcome the fantabulous Sir Christopher Of Buckshire back to TPS Manor. 

Chris is the Buck in Buck & Evans, about which you can discover more on ye olde Interwebs:

Chris visited us back in August 2018 where we made this video: and in this visit he returns to update his pedalboard with a full G2-based system. Dan and Chris discuss the layout and other requirements before cracking on with the build. We then plug it in and have a good listen… of course.

Massive thanks to Chris for his time and always-excellent hangs!

Enjoy the episode!

•Note about Riff City Guitar
It was with a heavy heart that Dan and I heard that Riff City was closing as of July 2019. This video was shot and edited before that which doesn’t really matter… what does matter is that we want to thank Joe and everyone there for their support and friendship over the first years of TPS. We wish everyone involved with Riff City the vey best for the future – for absolutely sure when one door closes another one inevitably opens. Our very best to you Joe and team!
