Guitar Pedal and Effects Blog
Over the next months I will be reviving an old westfield guiter (note no caps on westfiled, just doesn't deserver it). This is the first video to introduce the project.
New guitar and bass effects company based in Glasgow, Scotland. Effects designed and built by a musician with other musicians in mind. Suddenly craving a new tone? It's a Sine.
The Behringer Ultragain MIC200 vacuum tube preamp is a great value standalone mic preamp that can also be used for line in and guitar or instruments. In this demo we use the Behringer c2 small diaphragm mics as mics. These are just awesome.
Valve Preamp for guitar amp by using the Behringer MIC200 vacuum tube preamp. The Behringer MIC200 is a vacuum tube pre-amp. It is mainly used for mic pre-amping but due to its versatility it can be used to warm up any signal in need of a preamp.
A quick demo and review of the PylePro PDMIC78 dynamic cardoid pattern instrument microphone. This is a great microphone and at very low price. 'Kinda' marketed as a shure sm57 alternative it looks the same and is great for instruments such as electric guitars, trumpets, snares, toms or other loud instruments...
Acid Splash Designes specialize in safe etching practices for custom design guitar pedals, as well as a variety of other forms of art.
Please read the interview with master luthiers Eliran Barashi and Kiki Goldstein. These guys are serious about handmaking everything, even casting their own brass hardware from a unique alloy that conducts the widest frequency range. The pickups are also made in-house and only use rare stocks of aged wood.
Greenhouse effects have a modular effects pedal. We had a look at the modular system and it has impressed. The idea is that you buy the 'Self Titled' pedal which is in effect an enclosure which then takes effects modules. The enclosure is built in the same quality and tank-like fashion as the other pedals by Greenhouse Effects. It has three dials on the top and all the plugs and circuitry to facilitate the modular effect that will be plugged in.
A brutal yet versatile distortion pedal by Greenhouse Effects. Exceptional build quality and great sounding distortion. The emphasis is on high gain values but low noise floors and in this pedals it is achieved perfectly.
You can buy the NoBrainer Distortion pedal here
The Greenhouse hand built Effects pedal Stonefish chorus and vibrato is like the other Greenhouse pedals - a very robust and quality build. This one is from a look point of view my favourite of their designs.
Throw your shitty fuzz pedal in the bin and get the Sludge Hammer. This pedal has made all others obsolete!
Greenhouse Effects hand built effects pedals are a rare breed of quality and sound. Of all the boutique and commercial pedals I have handeld these feel like a leap beyond the usual care and attention to detail and quality. The case is full metal and of a design I have not seen. The switches and pods work and feel lovely and the designs are fairly unique.
