Out with the old, in with the “older.”

I’ve been using the same amplification setup for years and years.  Digitech 2101 into an all tube Peavey 120/120 into two custom 2×12’s.  I found what works for me and stuck with it.  I’m not the only guitarist like that, surprisingly we axe-slingers can be a conservative lot.  Recently on a whim I tried a Seymour Duncan Twin Tube at the local guitar mecca, Guitar Czar, and everything changed.  This pedal is [insert fave over-the-top-descriptor]!  


This one pedal changed my entire setup.  No longer am I using a rack system.  I went back to my old ’68 silver-face AB763 Fender Bandmaster and pedals.  That worked great for a few practices but then I tried a friend’s Vox AC30 and more changes followed.  I’m now using a Vox AC30 with an extension cab and pedals only.  About as traditional and as purist as can be.  I’m basically back to a system similar to what I used when I started playing guitar:  Combo amp and pedals.  This is all due to one pedal; amazing.  I’m also using the cool Voodoo Labs pedal switching system as well, I can’t give enough praise to Seymour Duncan and Voodoo Labs, they have literally changed my musical life.  Here are photos of my interim setup before I went to the Vox.

  1. The Seymour Duncan delay is amazing too. Their new pedal line is really quality. I like your silverface Bandmaster. I’ve been using a 70s bandmaster reverb in a rehearsal studio and I really dig it. Super underrated amps!
