Our first issue is dedicated to the art of collecting and the collectors who put in the work. For a full look at everything the newsletter has to offer, click here. Some of UO’s resident employee musicians discuss their pedal set-ups, including how to build them and who to collect from. How long have you been building pedalboards? I have a stack in the basement of rejects from over the years. Do you collect pedals as well?

YMMV Some things are just hard to talk about in casual conversation. It may be because they contain an obscenity, sexual reference, or one of the Inherently Funny Words , or a Who’s on First? These days, more and more things are doing this entirely on purpose, often to draw attention to a controversial subject and push people’s comfort boundaries.
It’s also done frequently enough just to try and be funny, especially if it’s of the Black Comedy variety. Often leads to variable Politeness Judo when talked about publicly.
Finished in our legendary livery dating back to , the Crush range features our basket weave vinyl, woven speaker grille cloth, signature ‘picture frame’ edging and iconic hieroglyphs on the control panel.
It’s all there, but needs work. Here’s what we know. When we first powered the unit up slowly on our Vari-Ac, it started climbing in current to almost 3 amps by the time we approached 60 volts. The motor would not turn at almost 60 volts. I disconnected the motor and brought it up on the Vari-AC by itself with similar results. I tried to spin the motor with my fingers, and it started turning, but had a lot of “un-lubricated” bearing noise.
I then lightly and superficially, lubed the motor and at 60 volts it ran pretty well, but still had a lot of current draw, almost 3 amps. The motor windings, while they don’t smell bad, are very dark so I’m guessing the motor needs to be re-wound, repaired or replaced. Other than the shape of the axel it’s a standard AC motor that’s used in most motor driven devices.

E-H talking pedal I just earlier this evening found out that what I thought was a talking pedal was actually called a Golden Throat. What does a talking pedal do, and how does it work? Is it the same thing as a Golden Throat? They are completely different.

Tweet on Twitter From one perspective, flamenco and heavy metal might seem as far apart as the sun and the moon, but if you think about the hyperbolic emotion involved in both genres, there is a certain spritual connection. Born in East L. Growing up in a guitar-oriented culture, Mr. Rico came from a guitar household. His father, Bernardo Mason Rico, was a guitar-maker, with a shop where he built guitars, vihuelos, requintos, bajo sextos and other instruments for the Mexican-oriented musicians in L.
He also sold guitarmaking parts through the mail. Rico began playing guitar at an early age, as primarily a flamenco and classical guitarist. I got to meet all the players coming through, including young Paco de Lucia and Montoya. He and I were like godfather to son. I was very nervous but it is a great memory.

But that related only to Gibson guitars made from to Present. But, with more than 75 years of shipping records in the Gibson books, and dozens of variations on numerical schemes used over the years, serial numbers sometimes do little to shed light on the origin of a mysterious Gibson. With vintage Gibsons selling at auction for as much as half a million dollars, Davidson will sometimes roll up his sleeves and poke around in the ledgers, but only as time allows.
The earliest volumes contain hundreds of yellowed pages covered front and back with rows of handwritten numbers. It can take Davidson several hours to locate a specific serial number, if he can find it at all. Even then, there may be four other guitars—of all different models—with the same number sequence.

And thus, he founded,,,Fleetwood Mac. Back then, when Jimmy Page was barely out of his session musician days and first achieving fame with the soon-to-be-over Yardbirds, Peter Green was the ace, ripping heavy blues player in London, adored by his fans, who saw in Feetwood Mac a band that was more edgy and faithful to the blues than bigger names such as The Rolling Stones. The song was later covered by Santana and became a worldwide smash.
But worse was to come. While Fleetwood Mac carried on, to become one of the biggest bands in the world, Green was diagnosed with schizophrenia, a mental illness commonly characterised by hallucinations and paranoia, and spent time in psychiatric hospitals undergoing electroconvulsive therapy in the mid s. Peter Green, still rocking after all those years

This website is frequently updated. Last update October I do not want to repeat the information that can be found there, but I felt since I do my own thing here with sound clips that a general guide to those effects is necessary, but I highly recommend you check out Gilmourish for a comprehensive guide to all of David Gilmour’s gear and an album by album gear guide. Below is a guide to the basic effects gear needed to create a typical David Gilmour lead tones as heard on Pink Floyd studio and live recordings.
I have used every one of these effects at one time or another.

He attended Stocksbridge High School in Sheffield — and was later remembered by his English teacher, Steve Baker, as “someone unconventional, a little bit different, with a brightness and a cleverness that would serve him well. He had a very original sense of humour. Alex was never particularly vocal, but you could sense when some pieces of poetry moved him”. He spent most of his teenage years listening to rap artists such as Roots Manuva.
His attentions later turned to guitar music following the breakthrough of The Strokes and The Libertines. Turner’s parents bought him his first guitar for Christmas During this time he worked as a barman at the Sheffield venue, The Boardwalk.
