Well hello everyone. It's been a spell since the last Coffee and Riffs; we've been spreading ourselves between additional video series, producing a new pedal, and doing our best to stay clear of the American holiday hubbub while simultaneous leaning into it. This feels good—to be back in the swing of drinking too much coffee while listening to some premium riffs. And what a treat to return with, Cathy Begien spent a few days with us at the Old Blood office and we talked her into doing an episode with us. We drove up to Guthrie, OK and spent a Friday morning at Hoboken Coffee Roasters. They graciously invited us in and gave us reign of their space to fill with our noise and hair. Cathy offers up two performances using a Jazzmaster through some fender amps and swath of interesting pedals. In the first she employs the Broadcast, F1 Flanger, Procession, Kilobyte and Context, from Hudson Electronics, Alexander Effects, Old Blood Noise, Caroline Guitar Co, and Red Panda, respectively. In the second performance she implements the Broadcast, Reflector, Count To Five, Meteoré, from Hudson Electronics, Old Blood Noise, Montreal Assembly, and Caroline Guitar Co., respectively. Both times she used the T.C. Electronic Ditto X2 to loop with.
Cheers. WE'll be seeing you again soon.
