Paul Reed Smith Storms TPS! [New PRS Pedals, SE Silver Sky, HDRX 20 & more]

Published 21 Oct 2022

A true guitar leg-end of our time is here to shoot the sizzle at Schwangri-La!

Welcome to the show! It’s not every day we get to welcome a guest of such Genuine Guitar Royalty stature as Mr Paul Reed Smith!
But here he is, live and in person at That Pedal Show to talk about new pedals, old chestnuts and just about everything in between. For those of you yet to hear, PRS has recently released a batch of guitar pedals. That’s interesting for a couple of reasons: first, that Paul is a stalwart guitar-into-amp devotee; and second because they’re genuinely interesting, credible and high quality takes on some classic effects. Just-another-range-of-pile-em-high-sell-em-cheap-me-too pedals they most certainly are not.
There’s also a super fun new 20-watt tube amp too.
Without further ado, enjoy the show!

And please visit That Pedal Shop
