I found an interesting book on that very thing once
Sorry...it was called ROCKABILLY
The Twang Heard Round The World
Kind of more of a "history of" thing.
Was it referred to as rockabilly before or after 'Rock Billy Boogie' ?
The number of times this is called 'Rockabilly Boogie'....
Rockabilly is what was called rock and roll before the roll was amputated and replaced with a Marshall stack.
A really well-done "coffee table" book by Jerry Naylor I came across a few years ago. Comes with a good DVD, too. It may still be available from PBS.
Dang. I've looked this one up, on the Tavo site. That looks pretty damn sweet!
Like I said, it immediately became my favorite pedal. It's exactly what I wanted for Rockabilly and Country.
Only after Grady Martin played on that record.
Yeah its a great pedal, but it’s really more of the Setzer sound. It’s a pedal of the Roland space echo from the 80s.
Yep it's got a copy of the Roland Space Echo preamp. That's what Tavo's main thing is
FenderGyrl- beware the dark side of Gretsch guitars (and resist the lure of our sister site Gretsch Talk). There's something about the sound of filtertrons in a wide hollowbody (or dynasonics in a duo jet). They make subtle sounds that no other guitar can really match, just as a tele does things that no other guitar can. Tone Heaven!
I’m pretty sure the echo side of the pedal is as well. The whole pedal is a pedal version of the Roland space echo.
Not dissin’ His stuff cause he is a good guy and a total tone mad scientist. I’ve met him a few times and a buddy of mine eendorses his stuff (and he doesn’t really do endorsecements). But the belle epoch is closer the the echoplex, which was more period correct for the 50s rockabilly.
I was checking out this pedal...wow...
I hear ya, I have two Gretsch Guitars!
Shhhh! PM FenderGyrl with that stuff, we don’t want to let out those secrets! The Dark Side had it’s hooks in me before any Tele did. Oops...
Nate Gibson is VERY rockabilly. Get that attitude, sound and energy, then You're at it!
I have a couple Gretsches, but this is my fake Jet.
Chambered Lester (one of the Chambered Brothers!) with a Dyna 2000, which, I think, is a truly great pickup.
Scratches the Jet itch.
Still looking for another, but the Dyna and the P90 sure sound good together.
Check out some old Psychobilly as well, Reverend Horton Heat is more rockabilly than psycho
That's what I want to do to my Les Paul. TV Jones makes a dyna (T-Armond) in a soapbar cover, looks slick!
Wow. Really cool.
How does it sound in the middle position? Balance well?
