Dod Gonkulator, EHX Pog 2, EHX B9 & C9, Digitech Synth Wah. Oh dear...
Published on 11 Dec 2015
Lovers of pure, unadulterated guitar tones look away now, because in this episode, Daniel and Mick offer a primer on the world of guitar sounds that, er, aren't guitar sounds.
Obviously it's a massive topic and before anyone asks, this is NOT about guitar synths. We might do that in the future. Say, 2025 or thereabouts.
Instead, we're talking about more simple pedals, to whit this is a light overview of…
• Ring modulation with the 2015 reissue Dod Gonkulator
• Subsynth with the Digitech Synth Wah
• Polyphonic octave generation with the Electro-Harmonix POG2 and...
• …as an extension of that, the Electro-Harmonix B9 and C9 Organ Machines
Somewhere among all the bonkers conkers there might be a sound or two you could use. Er, maybe?
Dan is playing his Nik Huber Krautster II, Mick is playing a Collings SoCo, although frankly the guitars might just be slightly overkill for these sounds. You think?
Amps are a Marshall JTM45 (reboxed) into a Marshall 1961cx 2x12 with Celestion G12H Anniversary speakers, and a Two-Rock Studio Pro 35 into a custom Zilla 1x12 with Celestion G12H Creamback speaker.
As always, effects and amp switching and routing is handled effortlessly by TheGigRig G2.
Enjoy this if you dare...
