Pedal board at 1:25 Published on 19 Jul 2016 In this episode of Song Stories, Scottish songwriter and guitarist KT Tunstall walks us through her songs “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree” and “Evil Eye,” discusses the importance of rhythmic playing in her performing, what makes looping interesting (and not so interesting), and performs the hit off of her most recent EP, Golden State.more
It is definitely one of my favourite overdrives because it has a very organic tone hard to find in other pedals. This will not sound like a tube screamer and does not try to imitate the classic plexi sound, it is just different. On low gain settings you can get the most natural crunch sounds from your amp, so cool it doesn't sound like there's a pedal in the middle. If you roll the gain up you can get up to almost fuzz territory but without having to fight against annoying feedback. It is extremely responsive to your hand, so you can have clean and dirty in your hand depending in how hard you strum the strings. It has a lot of volume to crank your amp but it really cleans up very well rolling down the volume knob. It works very well with other pedals too. I use it sometimes combined with an Xotic SL Drive or a Way Huge Green Rhino; sounds great with both and the possibilities are endless. Any cons? Depending on your amp or guitar you might want a tone control. They have fixed that in the 25th anniversary edition of it. I personally don't need it. To me, it doesn't work well for some lead tones, but there are other pedals for that. This is unique, will sound great and will give you a special tone that will take you away from all those thousands of green pedal imitations. If it is good enough for Mike Campbell and for our surely missed Tom Petty it is definitely good for me.
