“Finally a tube tester that I can test all those pesky old tubes lying around the house. I found the orange tube tester a sight for sore eyes, very easy to use and quite easy to comprehend and incorporate in the testing of all the tubes in my amp giving me a value to each and able to match tubes for best performance in a nice small package.”more
Pedalboard used in conjunction with Marshall: "My live ‘board is pretty simple - essentially just a tuner, an octave pedal, and a couple of subtle boost pedals. 90% of the core sound is from the guitar and amp, then a clean boost is used just to push the amp a bit harder into overdrive. I use the guitar volume for most of the tonal variations. Main pedals used are as follows: Free The Tone FINAL BOOSTER - Fantastic clean boost… the great thing is when set at zero and kicking it in there no tonal/level change whatsoever - it only adds to what’s already there. Has a nice natural sounding buffer in it too. Sonic Research ST-200 Tuner - Accurate and reliable strobe tuner that works great especially for the ‘half a step down’ tuning I use. Easy to see on dark stages too! T-Rex ALBERTA - Nice subtle tubescreamer type pedal, smoother and warmer sounding than the classic TS pedals. Normally just kicked in now and then with the Strat. T-Rex OCTAVIUS Octave pedal with switchable clean boost - This is great and is used mostly with the old cello slide guitar. The guitar has a really low output so the extra boost on here works perfectly to beef things back up. Voodoo Lab PEDAL POWER 2 PLUS - Silent, super reliable and efficient power supply! Brightonion Pedals TRUE BYPASS LOOPER - Any pedals that aren’t true bypass run through this, plus it keeps things nice and easy to switch on and off during a gig as every thing is at the front! Other pedals I use now and then: Klon Centaur, JHS Charlie Brown, Free The Tone Red Jasper, ZVEX Box Of Rock" -Aynsley Listermore
