I own no Wampler pedals (mainly a modeler guy) but as a newbie circuit bender, I THOROUGHLY enjoy your YT videos.
Any advice about tools for someone getting into building pedals? I'm in the throws of my first build!
They *sometimes* do, but they aren't very cuddly. They do a great job of keeping the grass cut in the pasture though!Do goats really make good pets?
And who is the best country guitar player, and why is it Brent Mason?
Keeley makes one, but not many other 'higher end" builders that I know of. I'm not sure why, I think the skeleton of that circuit is a great place to start from and making something interesting! I'm not a big fan of 1:1 clones though, I typically like to do my own spin on them.How come we don’t see many Boss BD-2 clones on the market? Have you ever considered making one? I’d love one with bass/mid/treble controls.
I've always been a HUGE George Lynch fan, and earlier queensryche, skid row first two albums, earlier Ratt stuff. A lot of the cliched 80s "metal" or rock is what I grew up on, so it kind of holds a nostalgic special place for me.Huge fan of your work Brian.
I always enjoy when you sneak some hair metal riffs into your videos. What's your favourite album from that era?
I had been a big fan of BM in the 90s, and even named one of my kids after him (before I knew him personally), so I was quite familiar with the tones he preferred and his normal gear of choice. So I just modified a BD-2 to be a bit more along those lines, as the core circuit of the bd-2 is a great modding platform! I think originally i did the bd-2, then took it to nashville where he was playing in a small club and gave it to him. After that I ended up modifying a ton of his gear.Welcome!
I’d love to hear more about your original bd-2 mods and how Brent Mason came about using them
