That Pedal Show – Strymon Mobius vs Classic Modulation Effects Pedals

Published on Jun 16, 2017
Duration:
01:02:30

In this episode we are responding to many, many requests to put the Strymon Mobius ‘against’ a selection of classic single-sound pedals. We cover flanger, phaser, rotary speaker, Univibe-type vibe and chorus as the main modulation food groups, before having a brief excursion through the Mobius’s.additional modes. This thing has sooooo many options we’re barely scratching the surface, yet scratch it we will.
A quick thanks to Katherine, Mick’s wife, who was on filming duties today because Simon was off having a baby. Or at least Simon’s wife was having a baby – CONGRATULATIONS GUYS!
Also, Mick wrongly states that Candy Apple Red was around from the late 1950s. NO! It was introduced in 1963. Slap that wrist.

Right, let’s get in to this…
