Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.
This is Dan’N’Mick’s Pick’N’Mix where we feature four (or five) pedals (and amps) that are new (to us anyway).
Our agenda is purely to plug them in, see what cool sounds and features we find, and combine them in whatever way inspires. That’s it!
There’s a strong Laney theme in this episode, not least because the splendid people there offered us a first look at the new-for-2018 LA30BL. Dan got all fizzy about this when we saw it at NAMM back in January 2018. And it would be entirely rude to play it without the Black Country Customs TI Booster, right?
But the fun doesn’t stop there. ZVEX’s Box Of Rock is beloved of so many people. A so-say ‘JTM45 in a box’, it’s high time it got an airing on TPS. We’re also a-wobblin’ and a-shimmerin’ thanks to Supro’s Tremolo – with the all-important Harmonic mode – and the new Reflection Reverb from Wampler.
Enjoy the video…
