A question regarding the wet output + volume poti mod for the EHX Freeze

A reader’s question:

I have got a question regarding the Wet Output + Volume Poti Mod and the Remote Switch Mod for the EHX Freeze.
Is the volume mod supposed to control the volume of the wet signal or the dry signal or the mix?
And will the function of the original switch of the Freeze remain after the installation of the output for the additional switch? In other words: Could the bass player in my band control the Freeze on my pedalboard from the other side of the stage while I am playing the WahWah?

Which pedal should I get?

A reader’s question:

Last year (after several years of playing the guitar) I finally bought my first effect pedals: the Walrus Audio Slö, the Earthquaker Devices Westwood and the Ditto looper.
I mostly listen to minimal, indie and ambient and therefore, I would love to create such sounds myself. But unfortunately, I have not made up my mind about a specific sound. Continue reading “Which pedal should I get?”

Boss DD-8 vs. DOD Rubberneck

This is a comparison of the Boss DD-8 with the DOD Rubberneck.
On request, I made this video. In comparison to the DD-7, the analog mode of the DD-8 has been changed. So, I wanted to compare this sound to another analog delay (DOD Rubberneck).
Furthermore, you will get slapback sounds, run-away feedback and oscillation.

MXR Carbon Copy Deluxe or Eventide Rose?

Ask the DudeA reader’s question to the Dude:

“I have a question about two delay pedals, one of which I own and another I do not, but am interested in. You have demoed both on your channel, just never head to head.
The pedal I currently run on my board is a MXR Carbon Copy Deluxe. I love the pedal. I am running a professional tele through it into a Deluxe Reverb, and I love how it stays warm and doesn’t color my tone the way a lot of the digital delays seem to.
For some reason though, I am constantly looking at other delays thinking, “Ohhh, that will be the one I should replace the MXR with.” I am not looking to replace it, but, I don’t know why I keep looking at other ones.
This brings me to the other pedal, the Eventide Rose.
Seems awesome, and has that feeling of the MXR, but I cannot find any direct comparison videos of both.
I was hoping you could just tell me what you think about the two of them in comparison. Continue reading “MXR Carbon Copy Deluxe or Eventide Rose?”
