Aaaaaand we're back. Ol' trusty dusty Pete Jonas is back too, with a sweet friend named Connor Foubister. Back in July we found ourselves in Nashville, TN for a tradeshow, along with a lot of our friends in the "industry". So late one night, thanks solely to the kindness of our friend Tom, we were able to get into Barista Parlor's Golden Sound location and see what kind of riffs might drift from the amps and instruments of some friends. We brought our demo boards from the trade show while Pete and Connor brought some fun devices as well. Pete Jonas played a Prisma Diavolo guitar through the Old Blood Noise Endeavors EQ+Buffer, Black Fountain, Fault, Haunt, Reflector, Mondegreen, Procession, Dark Star and Whitecap, as well as the Walrus Audio 385 and Chase Bliss Tonal Recall into a custom built Otis Trudeau amplifier which we miked with an EV RE201. Connor ran his violin through a Fishman V200 Pickup, Adventure Audio Whateverb, the Old Blood Noise Endeavors EQ+Buffer, Black Fountain, Fault, Haunt, Reflector, Mondegreen, Procession, Dark Star, and Whitecap into a Fender Deluxe Reverb miked with an EV 635a.
This shoot was only made possible due to some great people willing to take a risk and see what would happen if we through all of this together. Thank you to Tom Eisenbraun for trusting us to respect and be inspired by the Golden Sound location of Barista Parlor, it was a great time and I can speak for myself and say that I left inspired by his generous and creative spirit. Thank you also to August Greybosch of Otis amps, Nick Pourfard from Prisma Guitars, and Chris Demaria from Fishman Transducers; this shoot also would not have been possible without him lending us the V200 violin pickup.
