One of the most common questions we get through our website is this: "How should I set my _____ pedal to get the sound from this song ______ ?” Unfortunately, that's something that we can't really answer. It depends on a myriad of different things including but not limited to what amp you're playing, how you have it set, what guitar you're playing, how loud you're playing, and that's not even taking into account the playing style... as there is indeed alot to be said for "tone is in the...

If you had to choose just one pedal to gig with, could you do it? What would you choose? Brian and Blake discuss what they would do. We all have quirks, dislikes and odd fears. Like Brian’s fear of Pool drains or Blake’s dislike of chewing on dry towels. (Yeah, I know). And there is a new pedal that has caught Brian’s eye. It has some very cool features that the guys discuss, but it also has some “interesting” marketing. Dive in with Blake and Brian. Brian tackles Blake’s mini display...

Tuners are very necessary. Some use a pedal and some use a headstock tuner. But would you leave that on your guitar throughout a gig? Is it wrong to do so? Brian and Blake have strong opinions on the subject. Brian got away from it all for a few days of outdoor fun with his son. This meant he was “off the grid” for several days. Needless to say, his inbox was a bit full. Was it worth it? Brian will answer that. (And your emails…eventually) Pedal rental services. Brian points out a very...
