Union T&T Tour Bender, Fender MTG Tube Distortion, Diamond Vibrato, TC Hall Of Fame2x4 – Pick’N’Mix

Published on 27 Aug 2019

This is Dan’N’Mick’s Pick’N’Mix where we feature four 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. That’s it! Enjoy…

PLEASE NOTE: We recently changed the PnM format to include jamming/backing tracks. This one was filmed before that… and then got delayed because TC delayed the release of the Flashback 2 x 4. So that’s why there’s no backing track and/or jamming. All future PnMs will have backing tracks. And we’re renaming them Pedal Jams.

Another bit of interesting info is that this was the day that we decided we didn’t need two mics on the cabs any more. New Sontronics Delta 2 ribbon mics arrived. We used them and took the Neumanns out of the mix. We had the Neumanns there before to balance out whatever other mics we were using. The Delta 2s sound great on their own.

Meantime, enjoy the episode!
