That Pedal Show – Thoughts On Simple Stereo & Wet-Dry-Wet Rigs

Published on Apr 21, 2017

In this episode we take an introductory look at stereo and wet-dry-wet rigs. We begin by explaining the basics of a stereo amp arrangement, before demonstrating some common effects – chorus, reverb and delay – in the stereo field.
We then move on to talking about the new Orange Rocker 32 amp as an example of a modern amp that can take a stereo effects return… before plunging headlong into full wet-dry-wet territory.
And then there’s a Eurovision nightmare to finish.
This should be fun…
