God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen - Live Stereo Guitar Looping


Download this Song Now (Name Your Own Price)

A guitar looping version (somewhat ambient style) of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.

I used the Patchulator 8000 patchbay by Boredbrain Music to route the looped signal through the Pitch Fork, Aurora, and DD500 and then stereo out (left into the HRD and right into one channel of the AC15), and the guitar signal (Gretsch Power Jet) through the El Cap, Wet, and out to the other channel of the AC15.

If you listen with headphones you can hear the different signals that got sent left (HRDeluxe) and right (AC15).

Equipment used:

Gretsch Power Jet
Patchulator 8000 patchbay by http://www.boredbrainmusic.com
Boomerang III Looper
Strymon El Capistan
Neunaber Stereo Wet
EHX PitchFork
Boss DD-500

Star Wars Inspired Guitar Pedals You Can Buy Now


With the highly anticipated release of Star Wars: the Force Awakens, I thought it would be fun to do a roundup of Star Wars inspired pedals that are now available for purchase (if there are any that you know of that I have left out, please let me know so I can add it).


CY-VORG by Effectivy Wonder Pedals
This is a Clone of the classic and unique Vorg/Pearl Warpsound, the pedal that Kevin Shields (from My Bloody Valentine) uses in Loveless, and bears a striking resemblance to R2-D2.

To buy or for more information, visit Effectivy Wonder Pedals.




Overdrive No.30 w/ Allen Bradley's (Star Wars Editions)

This is an EM drive inspired overdrive in a Star Wars themed enclosure. This one displays a stormtrooper head with the text "I had friends on that Death Star."


To buy or for more information, visit Midnight 30 Music.




Dr. Blankenstein Illumiringer V1.5 Star Wars Edition Overdrive & Ring Modulator

The Illumiringer V1.5 is a 2-stage hybrid pedal with a gain pre stage (based off an Ibanez TS-808 and option for TS9 circuit) with controls for gain ("Jedi"), Tone, and Level which can be used on its own or drive the Illumiringer side, a light/motion-controlled ring modulatorwhich has controls for  "Sith" and level (the knob on the right fo the box). The Illumiringer side can also be used on its own without having the gain pre on.

To buy or for more information, visit the listing on Reverb.



Pedal Projects Klone Special Hand Paint Darth Vader
A nice-looking Klon clone with the Vader helmet hand-painted in white and black.

DD500 vs DD20 - Basic Modes


A head-to-head comparison of the modes that the Boss DD-20 and DD-500 delay units have in common. I set the tone, feedback, and echo level to comparable levels for both units.

******** This demo is in stereo so be sure to use headphones **********

Please note that the functionality of the two pedals is very different, as the DD-500 allows for more extensive tweakability of each delay type and offers more patches for saving presets.

The video is a comparison of the tone of the basic delay modes out of the box (without much tweaking).

Standard Delay: 00:25
Tape Delay: 01:02
Modulation on DD20 vs Vintage Delay on DD500: 01:44
Dual Delay Mode: 02:33
Reverse Mode: 03:16
Analog Mode: 04:02
