IF you only watch one guitar video this year, watch this one! It’s full of tone geekery and awesome blues and funk licks. I didn’t know Kirk Fletcher before watching, what a player!

Codtone Big Muff Civil War Era Clone
Codtone is a very cool one man boutique manufacturer based out of northern New South Wales in Australia.
Not only does he craft killer pedals often based on well known circuits, he also offers something quite unique: custom etchings on his pedals.
I was after a compact Muff after selling my (too) large Big Muff Pi reissue so after trading some gear I custom ordered a Big Muff clone from Codtone. Here is a little demo of the beast which sports a Civil war era circuit and is etched with the coat of arms of my native region in France:
Quick Test: Tech 21 British V2 for Direct Recording
I have recently acquired a Tech 21 British V2 Sansamp from the Character series. for the purpose of recording direct.
Here is a quick test where I have set the British V2 quite clean and a Wampler Pinnacle is used for dirt. There is also a delay courtesy of an Eventide H9 and some reverb from Cubase.
Legendary Pedals: Videos in French
Guitar slinger friends, I have just launched a separate Youtube channel dedicated to videos in French!
The reason for it: there is a large offering of demos or general guitar and effects talk in the English speaking world, but not much so in the French speaking world.
To kickstart this new channel, I have released three videos in a new series dedicated to what I call “Legendary Pedals”: the Proco RAT, the Boss DS-1 and the Ibanez Tube Screamer.
In a departure from all my other videos, there is some talking before the demo bits. I recount the history behind the pedals and their famous users and I give some tips as well. If you don’t speak or understand French, jump to about half way on each video to hear some tones!
