Just five hours after leaving our previous shooting location at 5:00am, we find ourselves in Highland Park, California, at 5Starr Sound Labs with Juan Alderete. Juan is extremely kind and welcoming, with a wealth of knowledge of gear and history he happily shares. We enjoyed getting chill, looking forward to the next time we get to do it again.
Juan constructs his beautifully obliterated sound palette with the T.C. Electronic Ditto x2, Fairfield Circuitry Randy's Revenge, JHS Pedals Emperor, Green House Effects Stone Fish, Vintage EHX Micro Synth, Mantic Concepts - Vitriol EHX - Vintage Big Muff, rounding out the Chain with the wildly fun HoTone - Wally. The beastly Jerry Jones Bass VI helped too.
