I have been playing guitar for most of life.  I have had so many different  set ups from guitar pedals to racks. I have searched for a long time to find the exact tone I wanted to achieve.   Guitar pedals have came along way and I am glad to see so many new companies making so many new products.  I made a demo on a pedal called the VAUGHNABE that was made from a company called VALCO.  Of all the pedals that I demoed on the VALCO line-up, this one was my favorite. It gave my stratocaster a VINTAGE tone and it reminded me of some tones that Stevie Ray Vaughan was getting. This pedal made me want to play more.  You take a listen and let us know what you think.

I have tried every way to record guitar and this one has got to be my favorite. I am using a SHURE SM57 and a ribbon mic called THE FAT HEAD. It is made by a company called CASCADE.   I recorded the audio using a TOFT pre amp.  For the voice over, I used a RHODE NT2-A

If you have a different way of recording please let us all know.

We all know that GMD  makes some really great pedals.  Also, I know that TRACHOUSE is making some great pedals, so I thought I would make a demo shoot out  on these two products.  The GMD  pedal can be used a couple different ways.  It all depends on how you set it up. The TRACHOUSE is just a boost pedal that I use at the end of my pedal chain.  I will let you be the judge of these two pedals. Please leave feedback, I would like to hear what you guys think.

If you are looking for a funky fuzz pedal then you should check this pedal out. It has an octave switch on it also that has a metal feel to it. Let me know what you think about this product. On a different note I would like to hear some feed back on some of your favorite guitar pedals. There are so many stomp box companies out there it is crazy.


have a great day.
