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 […]

Empress Heavy Review

Empress Heavy Review

I must admit to being a nay sayer of heavy distortion pedals. I’ve tried so many and have been regularly disappointed. So many have fallen short of really sounding like a high gain amp. For the few that had good tone, they’re often so noisy it’s hard to use in live settings. Buzz Alert When […]

Stompshield Review

Research and Development There is a lot of work put into preparing for a gig. Aside from the obvious learning material and rehearsing, there is sound development. 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. […]

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 […]

Strymon El Capistan Delay Review

I’m a big fan of tape echo. I own a Fulltone Tube Tape Echo and it’s one of my favorite pieces of gear. Tape echo is a magical thing. Those that have spent time with them begin to think of them as part of the instrument rather then just an effect. They’re very musical. Here […]

Pedaltrain JR Review

I’ve had quite a few pedalboards in my time. Everything from homemade boards to custom boutique boards. I never seem to be content with pedalboards. My boards are always modular due to the variety of gigs I do. I may make one for a tour, but when I get back I swap out half the […]

Fulltone OCD Review

Road Dawg I don’t like to write a review about a piece of gear before I use it for a period of time. I feel like it takes time to get to know a new tool. Just like a person, first impressions are important, but aren’t a perfect indicator of the behavior to come. I’ve […]

Effectrode Tube Drive Review

  There are so many overdrive/distortion pedals on the market and most say the same thing in their description. Overdriven tube amp sound. Yet, when I’ve played through many they don’t actually sound like an amp overdriven. That’s not to say they sound bad. Some sound quite nice, but not really like a cranked tube […]
