That Pedal Show – Jeorge Tripps From Way Huge, MXR & Dunlop Visits TPS

Published on Mar 23, 2018

In this episode we welcome Mr Jeorge Tripps – founder of Way Huge, and director of product development for electronics across the Dunlop family of brands (that’s Dunlop, CryBaby, MXR and Way Huge). In addition to all the cool stuff that’s surfaced under those names (including the MXR Carbon Copy, Way Huge Aqua Puss and a whole bunch of other modern classics), Jeorge also did a stint at Line 6 where he was the product manager for the series of pedals that included the genre-changing DL4. Yes, the guy has some serious form!
In this video, we talk about all of the above and also get a look at a handful of new products for 2018 among the anecdotes and general TPS banter. It was an honour and pleasure to have Jeorge on the show – we hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
