Using Pedals & Loops With Gainy Amps – That Pedal Show

January 4, 2019

This is the audio from our YouTube video here: https://youtu.be/8LW_v-U5QV0

In this episode we meander through what seems to be a huge point of discussion with a lot of people: using pedals with overdriven amps. As regular viewers will know, Dan and I tend to use cleaner / higher headroom amps for the basis on which to stack different gain sounds from pedals. However, lots of people really like the sound of an overdriven amp… which is where the ‘problems’ really start when adding pedals.
We run through comparisons of using common gain pedal types into contrasting amps: one clean/high headroom and one heavily overdriven to try to shed some light on the issues you may be having. And of course the discussion would not be complete without discussing delay and reverb into either the front of the amp, or the loop.
As always, there really are no answers, just better questions, and what we hope to arm you with here is simply a better understanding of the various gain stacking relationships you will encounter when using pedals with amps.

If you’re at any point confused which amp you’re hearing: Amp 1 lit on G2 means it’s the Hiwatt. Amp 2 lit means it’s the Victory. Enjoy!

10 Great Ways To Use Your Delay Pedals

December 28, 2018

This is the audio from our YouTube video here: https://youtu.be/Ol1Z6OF6N-U

We get asked lots of questions about delay pedals and how to use them creatively, so in this video we show you 10 cool things you can do with… yep… delay pedals.

It’s important to note that not all delay pedals will do all of these things. For example, Thing 5 – Changing The Sound Of Repeats –requires a pedal that has the ability to do that. Many modern multifunction / programmable delays from the likes of Strymon, Boss and so on have these features, as of course do the examples we use in the video. If nothing else, it might serve as a guide to what you might actually need or not need when choosing a new delay pedal because heaven knows that are so many on the market!
We do not cover stereo delays in this video - it’s a much less common application for most people and requires a deeper dive at some point.
Anyhoo, enough yakkin’ from me Mick here – let’s get on with the show. Enjoy…

Worst Pedal Platform Amps?

December 21, 2018

This is the audio from our YouTube video here: https://youtu.be/lS10FEevBbI

Okay, for everyone I send here from the comments section, this explanation is for you…
Dan and I DID NOT select these amps as ‘the worst pedal platforms’. You did. And here's how that went down…
A few weeks back we were asked a question about ‘bad pedal platform amps.’ We said – as we always do – that there really are no bad ones, it’s more a question of what you want to achieve and whether your amp choice is appropriate for you, or indeed not.
We carried on to say that we thought we could make pretty much any amp sound good with pedals and asked the audience to suggest the worst pedal platform amps, in their opinion.
Among the many, many suggestions the absolute stand-out, clear ‘winner’ was – by a country light year – the Peavey 6505. We were surprised! Somewhere in the far distance was the Roland JC120. However, given that isn’t a real game and we can change the rules however we liked, we chose the JC40 instead. It’s more common, more affordable and I really wanted Dan to hear one.
So, we plug in, try some pedals and hopefully offer some useful suggestions along the way. As we find out… they both cope admirably with pedals!

Also: What’s that new white PRS?
Mick says: The Silver Sky has gone to pastures new and PRS Guitars Europe kindly offered to loan us something else to use on the show. I said what we needed was a relatively simple, mahogany body guitar with humbuckers, as we don’t currently have such a beast. Welcome the S2 Singlecut Standard – link below.”
