Kingsley Valve Pedals With Simon Jarrett

Published on Aug 5, 2016

In this episode we’re joined by Simon Jarrett of Kingsley Amplifiers.

Kingsley also makes exceptional valve pedals, including the Jester which is one of Dan’s all-time favourite overdrives.
Simon was in the UK on vacation (he now lives in Canada) and dropped in to see us, treating us to some very tasty playing and some insight into the latest additions to the Kingsley pedal range.
It was an absolute pleasure (not to mention an education) to hang out for a couple of hours!
