Rootbeer Audio amp building and repair service

"Rootbeer Audio is a tube amp repair/building workshop that's been operating in some form since 2008. I (Matt Manhire) started Rootbeer Audio in a parking lot in Northern New Jersey, moved it to a bedroom in Francisville (Philadelphia), relocated it to a basement in Fishtown (Philadelphia), before finally settling into (for the moment) a better-suited basement in Fishtown. Prior to Rootbeer Audio, I worked at a boutique amplifier company in New Jersey, and worked for Jess Oliver (Ampeg B-15 inventor). - Matt"

Spider III LINE6 15 watt demo and review

The spider III or Spider 3 LINE6 15 Watt amplifer is a fine amp for its price. It is loud and sounds great. It has enough options to get you the sound you want to practice to but as with all small and budget options these presets are never awesome.

BOSS DS-1 Distortion Pedal Demo and Review

There is no right or wrong order to pedals although many would like to make you believe that. Truth is that it is all about what 'sound' you are after. The suggestions here are to the generally agreed pedal orders on a pedal board for the most typically desired tone and sound results.

This little test was born from trying to figure out how much the buffers influence the clean signal. An attempt to 'see' the effects on the wave going through different buffered pedals. The ones I have used in this test is an old Rocktek, a Behringer, BOSS and a Zoom digital multi-effects unit.
