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.
