Modern guitar virtuoso, Sarah Lipstate A/K/A Noveller demonstrates how she uses the EarthQuaker Devices Swiss Thing to help her wrestle the pedals she employs for her magnificent soundscapes into submission.
I am aware that “ultimate” is like “unique.” Something either is or it isn’t in both cases, making “third ultimate” ridiculous. I just like having fun with the click bait concept. Also apologies to the manufacturers of the pedals for taking so long—life intervenes.
This roundup leans heavily on classic, less extreme fuzz, though with three octave fuzz boxes in the mix there are plenty of strange sounds available. This time we tackle two multi-sound EarthQuaker units, two Electro-Harmonix pedals, and one each from Crazy Tube Circuits, Keeley, Joe Gore, JHS, MXR, and Fender.
Thanks to Jeff Gburek for these tips about different ways to use the EBow. Be sure to check out his website for more info.
Can’t wait to see this guy at Big Ears in March.
