Guitarists Moog is Moogfooger incredible

September 23, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Moog MoogfoogerBig Briar Moogerfooger analog effects modules long before he was designing alien stomp boxes for Big Briar, Bob Moog was forever changing the way we make music with a little invention called the synthesizer. With his Moogfooger modules, ol’ Bob has extracted some of the more guitar-friendly features from his creations and packaged them in sturdy oak-and-metal enclosures suitable for stomping desktop tweaking.

Most guitarists will peg the Moogerfooger Lowepass Filter as an “auto wah,” but plug in an expression pedal and it can morph into a conventional wah. Equally versatile is the 12-stage Phaser, which does ever flavor of phasing imaginable and goes a few steps beyond with a sweep frequency that ranges from a barely perceptible one cycle per 100 seconds to a brain-spinning 250 cycles per second.

4 Marshall Guitar Pedals To Help Shape Your Sound

October 19, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Let’s take a look at 4 killer Marshall stompboxes to help shape your guitar tone. In this review, we will sit down and play all 4 pedals, and also includes video tone sample. You want to hear how kickass these Marshall Pedals sound, right?

Pedals in review:

  • BB-2 Bluesbreaker II
  • SV-1 Supervibe Chorus
  • ED-1 “Edward” Compressor Pedal
  • VT-1 Vibratrem

BB-2 Bluesbreaker II

Marshall BB-2 Bluesbreaker IIModeled after Marshall’s original Bluesbreaker pedal, the BB-2 offers two modes instead of one. The unit’s clean, but merciless boost function can pummel an amp’s input stage or drive long cables without altering the tone of your guitar, while the blues mode uses the pedal’s drive and tone controls to create a wide range of valve-like overdrives rich in 2nd-order harmonics.

The Bluesbreaker II worked extremely well with a vintage Marshall Super Lead, producing no low-end loss when interacting with the amp’s power tube distortion. It’s performance was equally commendable with a Blackface Fender Reverb, where the BB-2’s ultra-musical crunch was plainly in evidence. Read more

Stomp Box vs Multi Effects Processor

September 21, 2008 by · 19 Comments 

multi effects vs stomp box for guitarI’m 15 years old and have been playing guitar for about three years. Recently, I’ve become obsessed with the vas array of effects on the market. I currently own a DOD flanger and a Vox distortion booster, but I’m hell-bent on getting a wah, delay, octave, phaser and a million others. My dilemma is that I don’t know whether to get a truckload of pedals or a single multi-effects processor.

I am willing to spend more money to purchase individual pedals, but I don’t want to if I can get the same sounds from a single unit. I was hoping that you could tell me the advantages and disadvantages of each, and if there’s a multi-effects of each, processor you would recommend. Thanks


Good question, Shane. You would think a flanger’s a flanger whether it’s in a stand-alone box or one of several effects in a mutli-effects processor, right? Wrong! I can’t tell you exactly why this is, but to my ears stand-alone effects pedals always seem to have a purer, more realistic tonal quality than multi-effects units. And bet your ass the guys who make multi-effects boxes put plenty of research into making their all-in-one jobs more believable-sounding. Read more
