GEAR INFO  

Where does the stuff featured on That Pedal Show come from?
 
We never want anybody feeling coerced into buying something because Dan gave a cheeky boyish grin or Mick actually played something semi musical for a change.
The text below explains what we do, why we do it, and where all the TPS gear comes from. We also share detailed information for anyone wishing to send us gear so it's clear to everyone. It's been this way since day one of TPS.
Wishing you all happy tones!

 

Daniel & Mick

Where does our gear come from?

We are not interested in any kind of objectivity or in doing 'reviews'. Everything here is pure subjective opinion around how to find inspiration in guitar sounds and music.

As a result, the gear we use on TPS is a mixture of stuff we owned before the show existed, stuff we've bought at either full or artist/trade prices, and stuff we've been loaned or gifted from manufacturers. 

We have never accepted money, gear or anything else in return for making a video. Ever.

If you want to know more, read on…

We started That Pedal Show because we're nuts about great guitar sounds and playing.

In order to do it exactly how we want to do it with no commercial obligations, we decided from day one that we would never accept any monetary payment or free gear in return for making videos. We will not make videos 'for' anyone, and nor would we accept any sponsorship or product placement deals from any guitar gear companies. And we never have.

 

Editorial and commercial freedom is vital to us personally and to the TPS community.

It means we only ever feature the stuff we want to, whenever we want to. 

Nobody has ever, or will ever pay us money or give us free stuff in exchange for making a video.

In addition, we have never – and this bit is important – made any claims whatsoever to objectivity and/or 'reviewing' gear. We have always said that guitar gear preferences are always purely subjective and opinion-based, which is how we deliver the shows week-in, week-out. What you see and hear on the show are our personal opinions and nothing more. TPS's philosophy has always been 'there are no answers only better questions' and 'there is no best gear – only what you like, and what you like less'.

You should also know that after having worked in and around the guitar industry for many years, we have a great many friends in the guitar gear market. Most of them know what we're about and value our feedback. Again, you may feel that this has an impact on our subjective opinions of gear. It probably does! We'll just say it again: we have never made any claims to objectivity or 'reviewing' gear. It's just two personal opinions.

As the channel has grown, many manufacturers send us gear that they do not expect to be returned: ostensibly 'free' - especially amps and pedals - and in addition to that we can usually buy stuff that we want at artist and trade discounts. However, we never accept free or discounted gear on the basis that we will make a video to promote that gear. We do not make videos for money or gear.

 

Further we would never sell something that we’d been given. It’s always been understood as 'use it or return it'. 

 

So for the sake of transparency, if we are featuring a new product and we don't say specifically in the video, please assume it’s been provided free by a manufacturer, or we have bought it at a significant discount, should that change your opinion of our opinions! 

 

We will also often buy gear at full price when we want something specific that we don't already have, in order to demonstrate a concept.

If it’s a new guitar or other key product, we will endeavour to say in the video where it came from. We didn't do this on some older videos, but if you're unsure, either assume it was bought at a discount or it's on long-term loan or gifted, just to be on the safe side. 

 

If we have an artist on, clearly they will have received some of their gear either free or at artist prices. 

 

In addition to that, we also trade and buy stuff used on Reverb and eBay like everybody else, and indeed new stuff that isn’t discounted. We’ve been doing that ever since we started playing, long, long before YouTube and making videos was even a thing, so often what we feature will be from our personal gear stashes and may not actually be available anymore. 

 

You can decide for yourselves whether you think we favour a particular piece of gear because we got it free or at a significant discount. We hope that after watching a few videos, it will become obvious that neither of us has the capacity for that, and that the point of That Pedal Show really isn't to market people's gear for them, even though we are hyper aware that TPS does drive sales. Whatever effect the show has, we love what we love, and nothing else. 

 

So if you’re watching That Pedal Show, you’re already smart enough to know that gear companies want their stuff to appear on channels like ours, and that they send stuff - especially pedals - for free for us to hopefully feature. They want the exposure and the value it brings to their brands.

 

We never agree that we will feature something - it’s always try it first and see if it fits into something we’re doing. 

Our motivation is purely and simply an obsession with guitar tone that we want to share with you, so that you can understand your gear more and feel inspired to play. 

 

If you do feel inspired to buy something as a result of watching TPS we also think you’re smart enough to do your research, cross reference with other media sources and not just buy it because a couple of goons on YouTube really loved it. 

 

Even if we do really, really love it.

Thanks for reading this.

Sending Gear to That Pedal Show..

【老配方】是什么?


【老配方】是一种采用86种天然营养食材并含有28种维生素矿物质所结合的健康营养谷物。它可以被当作替代早餐的健康谷物,也可以是帮助调理身体的功能性食品。饮用【老配方】的方式有几种,包括:代餐、随餐、5:2换食、7/14/21天换食。




【老配方】怎么饮用?


饮用【老配方】前/后都必需先喝200毫升温开水。每天摄取充足水份。

适合。便秘使肠胃蠕动困难,且便少而硬,是孕妇的正常症状。将近一半的孕妇面对便秘问题。【老配方】里富含的膳食纤维可帮助改善便秘。除此之外,【老配方】也富含钙质。怀孕期间,婴儿需要钙质来构成强健的骨骼与牙齿,形成健康的心脏、神经与肌肉,以及发展正常的心律及凝血功能。如果在怀孕期间没有足够的钙质供应,胚胎会直接从母体的骨骼摄取钙质,造成健康问题。




【老配方】好在哪里?


【老配方】的86种食材科学配比,营养多样化。内含多种人体必需营养素更让【老配方】达到了极高的均衡性。其中坚果类、谷豆类和种籽类都是通过物理研磨整粒入餐,既保证营养的釋放,又确保膳食纤维的含量。 人们常说:百病之源皆由酸性体质而来。【老配方】是碱性的功能性天然食品,通过食用多样完整的食材,让我们获得均衡的营养,改变我们的酸性体质,从而消除各种亚健康的状态,让身体恢复真正的健康。【老配方】就是通过丰富的营养素,滋养和修复人体細胞,唤醒我们体内的神医——自愈力。




素食者是否适合饮用【老配方】?


是必须的。摄取各式各样且具有均衡营养的食物,对补充人体必需的营养是非常重要的。无论如何,相对于荤食者,素食者可能比较难于得到适当且足够的营养,特别是蛋白质与钙质。【老配方】所含的植物蛋白质与钙质非常适合解决素食者蛋白质与钙质不足的问题,因此,专家们一致推荐素食者饮用【老配方】。




在不添加防腐剂的情况下,【老配方】如何保存长达一年?


【老配方】使用全球Top5供应商的LLDPE铝箔保鲜科技,4层结构的铝箔包装能够出色地阻隔氧气、湿气、细菌和阳光,在全球约43个国家和地区已经被广泛使用。我们采用纯熟的技术,追上时间的步伐,将【老配方】的美好年华保留长达12个月。




我目前有按医生要求做药物调理,是否可以饮用【老配方】呢?


【老配方】是天然的功能性食品,不含任何化学添加物或药物,所以即使在药物治疗或调理的情况下,您也可放心饮用【老配方】。




为何【老配方】的味道和颜色有少许不同?


【老配方】采用天然蔬果谷物配制而成,产品味道会因为季节、气候、温度等天然因素,而有所不同。再加上,我们放弃使用任何有潜在危险的合成染料。在生产过程当中,我们坚持不对原材料进行漂白或染色,产品粉末都属天然颜色。由于气候、时间季节的因素,以及原材料来源和批次可能并不相同,经过标准的生产工艺后,不同批次的产品,粉末的颜色有可能会出现深浅差异。光线折射的原因也有可能造成视觉上的差异。这些都属于正常的现象,并不影响产品的质量。




糖尿病患者能够饮用【老配方】吗?


能。糖尿病是一种慢性疾病。当胰腺产生不了足够的胰岛素或者人体无法有效地利用所产生的胰岛素时,就会导致糖尿病。改变生活和饮食方式,选择对的食物和营养,那么血糖就可以被控制。多摄取高纤维和杂粮食物,并减少精致淀粉、糖和高脂肪的摄入量。 【老配方】保留杂粮的营养素,特别是膳食纤维、维生素、矿物质、蛋白质和抗氧化剂,而且是属于低血糖指数食物。非水溶性纤维促进肠胃蠕动,把毒素排出体外。而水溶性纤维,可延缓血糖吸收和上升的速度,也能帮助降低胆固醇,给予饱足感。




为什么冲泡的时候会呈现块状?


【老配方】不添加麦芽湖精或其它速溶剂,所以冲泡时较易结块和沉淀。建议冲泡时,分多次少量加开水,慢慢搅拌调和,这样不易结块。
