On Wednesday the 3rd November, as part of our Foundry 87 program, we co-hosted a pedal and amplifier information evening with Rod Miller from the YouTube Channel "The Pedal Picassos".
It was a great evening for anyone wanting to learn about basic types of guitar effects pedals, what each one does and where you might use the effect.
Running through the different gain options such as Overdrive, Distortion through to full on Metal. Then it was onto modulation effects, through to reverbs and delays.
Rod also gave everyone a rundown on how to set up a valve amp, which he demonstrated on the Fender Custom 68' Deluxe Reverb amp.
He then demonstrated the features and benefits of Boss's Katana Mk2 100 guitar amp.
We are so very fortunate to have guys like Rod giving their time to share their knowledge and experience. It's guys like him that make it possible for us to put on these Foundry 87 evenings.
Michele and I have always had "The more than just a music store" motto in mind, we wanted to create a place to share all things music. A community, where we can all learn and benefit from.
The Foundry 87 program is exactly that, a place to learn and share, create connections with like minded people. Anyway, if this or events like this are something you'd be interested in, keep an eye out for future ones, which will be advertised through our site and socials.
Look forward to seeing you all soon!
