Evil Filter Review by Guitarist Mark Marshall

Death By Audio Pedals Evil Filter

Over the last year I’ve been looking for pedals that carve their own path. I have no problem with traditional effects. I own and adore a lot of them.

Skill Sets For Gigs

A Gig is a Gig is a Gig is a Gig, right? Well, that’s not really an accurate way to think of a career in music. When you’re younger and less experienced you tend to see every gig in the same way. You haven’t traveled musically enough to have a depth of the skill set […]

Earthquaker Devices Disaster Transport SR Delay Review

Delay pedals are a staple for most guitarists. There are a lot to choose from these days. It seems like most pedal companies have thrown a delay into the pool. Many do the missionary position of delay. We have our meat and potatoes tape delay, analog delay and digital delay. There has been a recent […]
