    What Treble Booster?

    Sorry if I missed this detail, are you running it clean or dirty? Treble boosters don’t sound good into a clean amp.

    What Treble Booster?

    The Naga Viper will do the traditional honky treble booster thing with the controls dimed. Turning the range control CCW introduces more bass for a flatter, less honky response. It's a really versatile treble booster.

    The Dude Abides

    It’s interesting how we all perceive things differently. I found The Dude to be very compressed, both in response to picking dynamics, and when rolling back the guitar volume. Very nice pedal indeed, but it wouldn’t be high on my list of dynamic, touch-sensitive pedals.

    Your favorite compressor and experiences

    Boss CP-1X ended my search, and I’ve been through quite a few. It is stellar.

    Got pretty pedals? Do show.

    You win. This is so friggin cool.

    Welp, I’m going down the Big Muff rabbit hole (again)

    I guess I gravitate toward the smooth David Gilmour Big Muff tone, so it makes sense that I’d prefer the Violet Menace. Again, I’m no Big Muff expert. I just have a particular Muff tone in my head that I’m shooting for. I hope the Muffroom Cloud is exactly what you’re looking for. I look...

    Got pretty pedals? Do show.

    The DigiTech Obscura is one of the most hideous pedals I’ve ever owned, but also one of the best delays I’ve ever owned. I have two, actually.

    Welp, I’m going down the Big Muff rabbit hole (again)

    I am by no means a Big Muff expert, so take this with a grain of salt. The Fallout Cloud has sort of a chunky distortion. Doesn’t really have that smooth, fine grain distortion that I associate with a Big Muff. Also there’s a bit of a chirpy pick attack, similar to what you’d hear with a Rat...

    Cars: It’s All I Can Do lead sound?

    I’ve no doubt there are amps that can cop that sound. But, his lead sound compared to his rhythm sound suggests either a fuzz pedal, or an entirely different amp. I can get pretty close to the lead sound with a Stomp Under Foot Violet Menace (Violet Ram’s Head Big Muff clone) and an EQ pedal...

    NPD: Menatone Red Snapper

    So the Red Snapper has a more pleasing breakup to you?

    Talk me into, or out of, getting a tube amp

    If you’re strictly playing at home I think you’re better off with a SS solution. Definitely more flexibility and bang for the buck. Just my personal opinion, but I don’t feel low wattage tube amps are a good option if volume is an issue. Even a 5 watt tube amp can be loud as hell. A master...

    Cars: It’s All I Can Do lead sound?

    That's interesting, but I find it hard to believe that the lead in "It's All I can Do" was just a cranked amp. Sure sounds like a fuzz pedal to me. Maybe a Rat.

    NPD - Catalinbread Giygas Fuzz

    The Karma Suture is awesome. I use it as a boost into a dirty amp, or dirt pedal. Kinda behaves like a treble booster IMO. Very dynamic and unique.

    NPD: Menatone Red Snapper

    I own a Timmy and I'm perfectly happy with it. Would a Red Snapper be redundant?

    Using delay pedals to get reverb

    I have a preset on my Strymon Volante that I use for ambience in much the same way. I like it because the initial attack is unaffected, kinda like a reverb with pre-delay. Maintains note/chord clarity.

    Cars: It’s All I Can Do lead sound?

    Yep, that’s what I’m hearing, but which fuzz? Lots of mids and compression.

    Cars: It’s All I Can Do lead sound?

    What pedal do I need to buy to cop Elliot Easton’s sound in this lead (starts at 1:55)?

    NPD - Barber Gain Changer

    I don’t why I’ve never gotten around to trying a GC. It seems to get nothing but praise. I’ll snag one soon for sure. Glad it’s working well for you. Enjoy!

    Thorpy FX Gunshot

    The Muffroom Cloud is now the Fallout Cloud. I have one. It's a great fuzz, but not exactly like a Big Muff.

    Thorpy FX Gunshot

    I recently picked up a Gunshot and I’m really impressed with it. I typically run my amps clean so when it comes to dirt pedals I gravitate toward ones that have amp-like qualities. The Gunshot sounds and feels very much like a tube amp, in my opinion. More so than most of the dozens of “amp in...

    What I Learnt in 2021 About… (pedals)

    Try before you buy if possible. I know a lot of people like it. I didn’t care for it at all. I was shocked by how much I disliked it, honestly.

    Performance Anxiety

    Performance anxiety actually helps me focus and make fewer mistakes, oddly. The downside is I never really relax on stage. I just kinda stand there with my guitar. I might tap my foot or bob my head a little, but for the most part I am paralyzed with fear. I’m not a working pro, far from it...

    What I Learnt in 2021 About… (pedals)

    Same thing I’ve learned every year: I love pedals, I love trying new pedals, I will never be ‘done’, and I’m ok with it.

    Welp, I’m going down the Big Muff rabbit hole (again)

    I guess I’d consider it a tweaked Big Muff. The “improvements” make sense, and it does sound great, but the “improvements” make it sound less like a Big Muff if that makes sense. As nice as the Thorpy is, I think the Stomp Under Foot Violet Menace is still my current favorite.
