10 Things You Asked Us To Try [Light Strings, One-Cab Wet-Dry, No Pedals & More]

Published 3 Jul 2020

We love the comments you leave for us… and from those comments, here are 10 things you asked us to try!

Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.

Welcome to the show. There are so many cool little things to try in this vast world of guitar tones. Most of the time they’re not really enough to make a whole show, so we’ve bunched 10 of your suggestions together in this episode… and stumbled on some great new discoveries, ideas and learning.
The 10 Things are listed below in the interesting bits and go-to section timings.
Please keep the suggestions coming, and we’ll gladly follow up… as long as: a) it’s genuinely interesting to us; b) we can offer some insight; c) it hasn’t been done to death already; d) Mick doesn't have to use MIDI or digital modelling amps. Everyone has their limits.
Meantime, enjoy this – this was fun!
