Tsakalis Phonkify, Chase Tone ’68 Red Velvet, Lounsberry Nigel, Keeley Delay Workstation
Published on Jul 10, 2018
This is Dan’N’Mick’s Pick’N’Mix where we feature four pedal that are new (to us anyway).
Our agenda is purely to plug them in, see what cool sounds and features we find, and combine them in whatever way inspires. That’s it!
We start funky with the Tsakalis Audio Works Phonkify – a super versatile envelope filter / octave with nasty and smooth modes. It also has an input for an expression pedal, but we managed to miss that. It would control the frequency range of the of the envelope, giving you wah-like control. Y'know, if you actually plugged it in.
The Chase Tone ’68 Red Velvet Fuzz is a unique BC183 silicon fuzz inspired by that magic era. Extra controls up top mean it’s way more versatile than a traditional fuzz face.
Lounsberry pedals is a new name to us, so we check out the Nigel – a harmonic slab of goodly rock overdrive for which Dan goes all gooey. And finally, how it’s taken us so long to get the Keeley Delay Workstation on the show is anyone’s guess. A dual pedal with 8 different delays and reverbs combinable in a whole bunch of useful ways. A no-brainer one-stop delay and reverb for minimalists who nevertheless want a bit of versatility. Let’s plug in!
