Incredible blues guitarist Matt Schofield visits TPS with his new Mad Professor Supreme Pedal, Two Rock amp and SVL ’61 Daytona guitar. Matt shares a ton of playing knowledge and tone tips before jamming with the TPS Band… including Dan and Mick!
Matt Schofield is superb musician whom Dan and I have known for almost two decades now. His unerring dedication to constant improvement, refinement and expression in his playing is inspirational to say the least, as is his stellar tone and dynamic touch. He’s also a beacon for purity and simplification on the gear front, all of which we discuss in this video… including some awesome jamming with Paddy Blight on bass and Dougie Mussard on drums… otherwise known as the TPS Band.
Matt has the new Supreme overdrive pedal out with Mad Professor – Harri Koski also joins us – and we must also say a massive thanks to Damian Ford from Curt Mangan strings and Reunion Blues gigbags for organising Matt’s visit.
Matt is using the Two-Rock Classic Reverb Signature amplifier throughout, with the Universal Audio Ox Box set to minimum attenuation into the TR 2x12 cab.
Dan and Mick play through the Victory V140 The Super Duchess.
