Nowadays many guitarists swear by true bypass. As I already told you in the article “Buffer vs True Bypass”, a good buffer or booster has many advantages (especially for large pedalboards). Continue reading “Tips & Tricks: Booster as a tone enhancer”
Die ersten Cry Baby Wahs wurden in Pescara (Italien) hergestellt. Anschließend wurden die Effekte unter verschiedenen Labels wie z.B. Vox, Jen, Arbiter oder Luxor verkauft.

Hier möchte ich das Luxor Wah vorstellen. Es ist aus den 70ern und verfügt über eine Red Fasel Spule,
Das Vintage Wah liefert den typischen Hendrix-, Bonamassa- Vintage Sound. Continue reading “Luxor / Jen Cry Baby Wah”
The circuit is based on the legendary SI Fuzz of the 70s and creates the classical Hendrix-Sound.

Amp Comparison: Vox lil´ Night Train vs AC15
For this video I recorded one song with the Vox lil´ Night Train as well as the AC15. Both amplifiers have been recorded by the same speaker (Celestion G12M Greenback).
The lil´ Night Train is a really good recording amp that creates the typical Vox sound.
“True bypass” – I guess, there is no term that is mentioned more frequently relating to the presentation of a new pedal. What does “true bypass” mean and does it have any advantages? Continue reading “Ask the Dude: True Bypass vs. Buffer”
There are uncountable clones of the legendary Klon Centaur: Continue reading “Klon Centaur (part 2)”
Do they sound identically? Which one is most close to the original?
The prices for an original “Klon Centaur” are rising constantly. Recently I found a golden Klon on Italian ebay for 2100,- €. And to keep it in mind: this one, of course was in used condition and without box. Continue reading “Klon Centaur Clone”
Delay Dude Demo: Electro Harmonix – Deluxe Memory Boy
This shootout of the analog delay “Deluxe Memory Boy” by Electro Harmonix shows extraordinary sounds, which can be created with this pedal. Amongst other things I create tremolo- and pitch-sounds. In addition I use a POG and a tremolo in the effectloop of the Deluxe Memory boy.
Delay Dude Demo: Strymon Deco
This is a demo video of the Strymon Deco. The Deco is able to emulate doubletracker, tape flanger, tape saturation and delay of an old tape echo. For this video I used it for the drums as well as for the bass, the guitar and the vocals.
DelayDude Demo: MXR SF01 Slash Octave Fuzz
This is a demonstration of the MXR SF01 Slash Octave Fuzz. The signature pedal creates fuzz, octave up and octave down sounds.
This is a short comparison of two analog delay pedals:
The ARDx20 is a boutique delay by Analogman. It is an analog pedal with numerous features: two different settings, effect-loop amm. The Ibanez Admini also is analog and because of its size pretty “pedalboard-friendly”.
Both pedals are based on the old Ibanez AD-9 from the 80s.
