JHS Muffuletta Fuzz Review by Guitarist Mark Marshall

JHS Muffuletta Fuzz Review

The Big Muff plays a huge role in the evolution of electric guitar. When I became aware of this a number of years ago I immediately went out and bought an Electro Harmonix NYC Big Muff PI. Upon first plugging in, I scratched my head quite a bit. This didn’t sound like the guitar tones […]

Review: Weber Mass 200 Amp Attenuator

If you’ve spent enough time with an electric guitar, it’s likely you understand the relationship between the guitar and amp. You’ve likely experienced the incredible subtly volume plays in the tone of the electric guitar. Gain staging is such a huge part of electric guitar tone. There are hundreds of pedals that try to emulate […]

Review: Jam Ripple Phaser

Recently, I went on the search for a phaser pedal. It had been some time since I’ve owned one. I purchased a 90’s era Phase 90 in the… You guessed it, 1990’s. I wasn’t really pleased with the sound of that particular pedal. For one thing, whenever the pedal was bypassed, I could still hear […]

Some gigs you simply just plug a guitar straight into an amp and go. Others require a bit more sonic planning. It’s not un-common for me to spend […]

Pigtronix Infinity Looper Review

I’ve been using the Pigtronix Infinity Looper for a couple of months now. I like to get to know gear before I review it. With digital pedals, this can sometimes be a frustrating endeavor. You have to learn the language of the pedal. Often, the menus don’t feel like they were created by a musician. […]

10 Questions To Ask When Learning A Song

Learning songs is a deceptive skill. Once we start to have some familiarity with a composition, we start to believe we know it better then we really do. Often when we need to recall a tune, we end up with some missing spaces. Have you ever noticed that you can remember every lyric to some songs […]

Creation Audio Grizzly Bass Review

Creation audio have released a really interesting new overdrive pedal designed for bass that has some unexpected uses. The adjustments on the pedal are quite simple and very effective (get it?). I like that there are two knobs for gain. One is for overdrive and the other is for distortion. You can use them independently […]
