Beetronics Octahive, TateFX Antares OD, CTC Sidekick, OBNE Black Fountain: TPS Pedal Jams

Published on 17 Sep 2019

This is Pedal Jams where we feature four guitar effects pedals 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. We then jam over a backing for some context.

If you like that backing track - we start around 26:19 - you can buy it here:
