The Rat

The Rat is one of the earliest distortion pedals, arriving on the market in 1978. Prior to that, there were only a few gain pedals: the Colorsound Power Boost, the Maestro Fuzz-Tone FZ-1, the Sola Sound Tone Bender, the Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face, the Dallas Rangemaster, and the Electro- Harmonix Big Muff.  Much like we […]

Analog Man Beano Boost Treble Booster

I’m a self-confessed vintage tone nut. I’m not hiding in the shadows. I’m fully public with my love of guitar tones of past. That doesn’t mean I don’t embrace new ideas.  I’m open—unless you bring Kemper or Fractal into the conversation. Mostly because for me, the conversation of signal flow and gain staging to an […]

Keeley D&M Drive

If you chat with a guitarist and mention overdrives, you’ll need to pull up a chair and get comfy. You’re gonna be there for a while.  It’s a deep subject partly because there are so many overdrive pedals on the market. It’s flooded with overdrive options.  You might ask why we need to add one […]

As a company, I feel they’ve never wanted to make traditional pedals. Which is welcomed considering how many companies make their own version of a […]

Danelectro Pride of Texas Overdrive

Recently, I got my hands on a new pedal from Danelectro called the Pride of Texas. It’s part of a new line of pedals called the Billionaire series.  The name “Pride of Texas” suggests the pedal is going to be some sort of overdrive. Most likely in the arena of tones of Stevie Ray Vaughan. […]

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 […]

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 […]
