Because of the numerous requests regarding my favorite delays, I tried to figure out my top delays and I want to start this three-part series with my favorite tape emulations. The order of the delays within the respective group or video is no ranking for I am unable to tell which of them I like best. Thus, the presentation is according to the alphabetical order of their names. Check out the reasons why I have chosen these delays here.
Many times, I have been asked about my favorite delay pedals and I must confess, that this question is soo hard to answer to. Nevertheless, after a long time of thinking and trying, I figured out groups of my favorite delays regarding the categories analog delays, digital delays and tape emulations. Continue reading “My favorite tape emulations”
Who does not dream about starting crazy sound escapades, driving the delay to the border of oscillation and then, suddenly, turn back while you keep both hands on your guitar? The installation of an external switch enables you to choose via an expression-pedal if you want to control the delay time or the repeats by using an additional expression pedal. Continue reading “Mod: External switch to adjust the delay time via expression pedal”
“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?”
A long time ago, there was the Korg SDD-3000 rack delay with its legendary sound. Some years ago, the also less pedalboard-friendly version of this classic has been put on the market. Continue reading “Korg SDD-3000 Pedal”
In the first part of this series, I presented some budget tube combos. In the second part, I started a small overview of several heads. And finally, I would like to end up this series with some last recommendations. Continue reading “Lunchbox Tube Amps Part III”
In the first part of this series, I presented some budget tube combos. Here, I would like to give a small overview of several heads. They are even more handy and you can connect every speaker you like. Mini heads are pretty functional and flexible. Besides, they are (mostly) cost-effective and fit in almost every gig bag. Continue reading “Lunchbox Tube Amps Part II”
Small tube amps are pretty popular at the moment. And mostly, they are not much quieter than their big brothers. But of course, they offer a little less clean headroom. They can be carried easily and they are so much more than just a little toy. Perfect for a jam-session at home or for recording. In the Studio, even Led Zeppelin did not use a Marshall full stack but a small Supro amp. Mostly, the prices of these little amps are comparable with the effort for a good effect pedal.
In the world of guitars, the Fender Stratocaster is still a classic. No guitar model has been built and copied more often. To change the sound of a Strat, guitarists mostly think of changing the pickups. But today, I would like to make you learn more about the “sonic” function of the vibrato springs. Continue reading “Tone Tipp – Stratocaster Springs”
Some of you already know BYOC for their DIY kits for famous effect pedals. But lately, BYOC created an own overdrive pedal that might be able to set new standards. The Crown Jewel is probably the most versatile overdrive, booster, distortion and fuzz pedal ever invented. This is why I would like to present it here. Continue reading “Review: BYOC Crown Jewel Part II”
