Dinosaur Fuzz and Skyripper Joe Gagan 1/29/2002 8:34 AM
Dinosaur fuzz into a 68 twin using my doubleneck on the S. Duncan Broadcaster lead Pickup. Samples with wah ,stock Crybaby.Reverb added at the board. Mic shure sm58.
All samples were done without changing any settings during the track except the guitar volume knob,, to show the amount of cleaning up availiable from the Dino. Tone control and pregain were altered slightly between samples.

Yanu--sample is part of a song by my friend, Yanu. Song credits:

Small Stone F Peľa 12/12/2001 11:57 PM
Home made Small Stone. Recorded from Amp's line out. At higher speeds the clicks can be heard, I'm working on that.
The sample contains a couple of different settings, including pickup, speed and color switch changes.

Home made Big Muff F Peľa 12/1/2001 4:35 PM
Samples recorded from line out of Marshall VS100R. There's a little bit of reverb from the amp.

Skyripper Joe Gagan 11/22/2001 8:34 PM
Just a simple backing track and some ZZtopish noodling by Larry Otis. Amp used was a SF Vibrolux miked with an AKG C2000. Guitar was G&L SemiHollow Z-3.

Octave Screamer - Scott Swartz Aron Nelson 7/3/2001 7:54 PM
From Scott Swartz:

This sample includes notes all across the neck so that you can hear how it
tracks, and at the end I play some intervals which give a ring modulator
type of sound that is interesting. The recording signal chain is guitar amp
to Sennheiser MD421 to homebrew tube mic preamp to mixer (EQ bypassed) to
Tascam CD Burner. The stereo effects buss of the mixer was used to add a
small amount of digital reverb, Small Chamber preset on a Digitech TSR-24.
The guitar is a McInturff Polaris set to the neck pickup and the tone knob
turned to zero. Amp is a homebrew Twin Reverb type circuit set for a clean
sound, all distortion heard is coming from the effect.

kbhgtr2: Ultra High Gain. Tele Bridge. Noisey due to breadboard.
kbl1: Medium High Gain. Tele Bridge. Starts off with body at thick, then light (12 seconds), then center (22 seconds). It is subtle due to the use of the bridge pick up.

A very cool smooth sounding pedal. Check it out!

Oskar Bruil Tubedriver Joe Gagan 3/11/2001 3:52 PM
A somewhat modified tube driver. It's basically a 12vac tubedriver with the tone stack replaced by a 0.1uf coupling cap. Much grind and grit in the low notes. Recorded with an epi sg neck humbucker, tone all the way back and the pedal drive at 1/5, so the ic overdrive hasn't kicked in yet. Instant cream! (ok it doesn't sound like a 100watt plexi on 10 or anything, but still a damn nice stompbox!).
