Rotator: The Pedal Party

Sinopsis

Cogan Higgins and Chance Gibbs have started (at least what appears to be) the first guitar/bass pedal demo podcast. Every week, we will try something new, live on air and find reasons to (or not to) have that pedal on your board. We give everything a fair shake and recognize nothing as sacred to the pedal community. In short: we're gear heads, and we hope you are too. Rock on, y'all.

    Ep. 29: Strymon DIG feat. the DMB Stellar Drive

    05/12/2017 Duración: 49min

    Sometimes you get in the mood for delay pedals, and you just have to get your hands on one. We did just that for this week's episode. We get down and dirty with the Strymon DIG. It's got two separate delay engines, and it's pink! The illusive DMB Stellar Drive makes an appearance as well. 

  • Ep. 28: Keeley Caverns V2 Delay/Reverb

    Ep. 28: Keeley Caverns V2 Delay/Reverb

    28/11/2017 Duración: 55min

    Are you ready to wobble? I never thought I'd want a delay or reverb pedal that had built-in wiggle, but the Caverns V2 actually does it on both—and incredibly well, I might add. Come on now!

    What has three knobs, two switches, and a ton of tone? Listen to this week's episode to find out. We can't tell what kind of pedal it is, but we know it sounds good.

    Ep. 26: Lightning Boy Audio Thunder Knob feat. ?MYSTERY DRIVE?

    26/10/2017 Duración: 43min

    This pedal is so serious about tone that it can KILL YOU. One knob, one switch, and only one emoji needed \m/

    Ep. 25: Charlie Paolo Custom Effects Obsidian Fuzz and Bloodstone Overdrive

    04/10/2017 Duración: 52min

    Charlie Paolo makes some pretty gnarly, doomy, boomy, zoomy pedals. This week, we got to try out the Obsidian Fuzz and Bloodstone Overdrive. So much straightforward rawk! Outro music by https://www.bensound.com because I can’t find our OG track! Whoops!

    Ep. 24: Will Sledge FX The Veil 919 + Biyang OD-8 Overdrives

    12/09/2017 Duración: 55min

    Tone snobs often treat “Tubescreamer” like a bad word, but should that always be the case? This week, we take a look at one high-end TS style pedal and compare it to a budget-friendly version. While they both have their shares of benefits, there is a clear winner in the end…  Also, we tried a few tweaks to the editing process, so let us know what you think of the new sound quality at rotator.party@gmail.com.  Gear used: 2013 Gibson SG ’61 Reissue 1995 Fender Stratocaster Hughes & Kettner Dual EL84 Statesman Shure SM57 Audix i5

    Ep. 23: Rocktron Rampage: The Return of Rotator

    05/09/2017 Duración: 47min

    GUESS WHO’S BACK. It’s us, the ‘Taterheads, and we have what you’ve been waiting for this whole time: a review of the high-end, special-made, blah blah blah we have an old, beat-up Rocktron Rampage, which totally lives up to its name. Summer is over, folks. Winter has come!   Gear used: 2013 Gibson SG ’61 Reissue 1995 Fender Stratocaster Hughes & Kettner Dual EL84 Statesman Shure SM57 Audix i5

  • Ep. 22: Ramble FX Twin Bender Fuzz

    Ep. 22: Ramble FX Twin Bender Fuzz

    27/06/2017 Duración: 01h11min

    Geraniums, germaniums, great flowery fuzz. What is the Twin Bender? Essentially, two iconic fuzz circuits in one unit accompanied with major modern upgrades that fix some of the finicky issues with putting old-school fuzz pedals on the boards of today. Tim is a great guy making some great stuff, so enjoy us being obnoxious! Gear used:  1995 Fender Stratocaster 2013 Gibson SG ’61 Reissue Fender Precision Bass Marshall JCM800 Shure SM57

    Ep. 21: Lost Lore and Legends, Part 1

    20/06/2017 Duración: 01h08min

    Due to unforeseen circumstances, we were not able to record a pedal demo this week. Instead, as our little baby podcast turns 21 episodes old, we were forced to turn our eyes within, remembering all the great pieces of gear that, for whatever reason (probably rent and bills), we had to let loose. Grab a tissue and get ready to mourn alongside us during this week’s memorial service for the pieces that have gone before. Godspeed.  Gear used:  None. Only gear lost…..   

  • Ep. 20: Fuchs Plush Cerberus Tri-Mode Overdrive

    Ep. 20: Fuchs Plush Cerberus Tri-Mode Overdrive

    13/06/2017 Duración: 55min

    This is another episode we recorded a little over a month ago and completely forgot about, which is a shame, especially since you can find these on reverb.com for about $40! With three different drive modes, we put this in the budget-friendly/multi-purpose category. And while it doesn't necessarily nail any of the territories exactly as advertised, all three voicings and useful and pretty fun to play with. Gear used: 1995 Fender Stratocaster 2013 Gibson SG '61 Reissue Fender Jazz Bass Vox AC30 Shure SM57

  • Ep. 19: MXR Blue Box

    Ep. 19: MXR Blue Box

    07/06/2017 Duración: 39min

    On this very special (read: late) episode of Rotator, you get to meet Chance’s girlfriend Mikala, who since taping this episode has been upgraded to fiancee. Celebrate good times, c’mon. As for the pedal, the Blue Box is, well, a blue box. And that’s exactly what it sounds like. Blue and boxy! Is it a fuzz? Is it an octave? Is it a space machine? Hard to tell, but we did our best.  Gear used:  1995 Fender Stratocaster 2013 Gibson SG ’61 Reissue Fender Jazz Bass Vox AC30 Shure SM57  

  • Ep. 18: Walrus Audio 385 Overdrive

    Ep. 18: Walrus Audio 385 Overdrive

    31/05/2017 Duración: 58min

    An overdrive pedal modeled after…….. a projector?! Genius. Not to get too cliche here, but this might be the single most #musical overdrive we have demoed. Allergy attacks/weather alerts couldn’t stop us from bringing you the purest tones we could get out of an impressively useful dirt box. Enjoy.  Gear used:  2003 Fender American Telecaster 2009 Gibson Les Paul Traditional Fender Precision Bass Stulce Amp head Marshall 2x12 cabinet Sennheiser MD421 Sennheiser e906   

  • Ep. 17: Lawrence Petross Design Eighty 7 Overdrive

    Ep. 17: Lawrence Petross Design Eighty 7 Overdrive

    23/05/2017 Duración: 01h01min

    We finally did it; we broke the 1-hour threshold, even after some major edits. We just had so much fun, we never wanted the episode to end, ya know? In all seriousness, this pedal is fun, functional, but probably not family friendly. \m/ Also, Chance forgets more riffs than he remembers.  Gear used:  2003 Fender American Telecaster 2009 Gibson Les Paul Traditional Kauer Arcturus Bass Stulce Amp head Marshall 2x12 cabinet Sennheiser MD421 Sennheiser e906  LPD 87

    Congrats to John Pepe on winning the Old Blood Noise Endeavors Haunt Fuzz from last week’s episode!! The stereo setup didn’t work, the cabinet was rattling, and Sister Kelly gone and locked herself out of the church office. But gosh dime it, we still finished the episode. And we’re happy we did because we may have finally given in and accepted the idea of a “transparent overdrive.” Trust me, that took some work.  Gear used:  Fender Blacktop Telecaster 1995 Fender Stratocaster Special 1964 Fender Bandmaster Fender P Bass Marshall 2x12 cabinet Sennheiser MD421 Emerson Em-Drive Transparent Overdrive Strymon Dig Digital Delay

    GIVEAWAY! If you want a chance to win the pedal we use in this episode, go like our Instagram account @rotatorparty and tag a friend who loves pedals in the picture we post for this episode! The winner will be randomly selected this Saturday (May 12). Special thanks to The Jared for donating this pedal. Knobs and switches and split-splat-patty-whack giva-dogga-fuzz. There are far more sounds in this pedal than we could discover in one sitting, but we did our best to capture this thing’s array of juicy flavor.  Gear used: 2009 Gibson Les Paul Traditional 1995 Fender Stratocaster Special 1964 Fender Bandmaster Marshall 2x12 cabinet Sennheiser MD421 Old Blood Noise Endeavors Haunt Fuzz A little delay from the Strymon Dig Digital Delay Visit www.rotator.party for more or subscribe in iTunes.

    Ep. 14: DigiTech Bad Monkey Tube Overdrive

    02/05/2017 Duración: 41min

    It took us a while to find the sweet spot, but once we did, we were hooked on this budget-friendly overdrive. If you want an affordable drive that can essentially turn a Blues Jr. into a 70s Marshall Superbass, getcha a Bad Monkey. And did we mention it cleans up well? Besides all our tomfoolery, if it’s good enough for the great Phil X, who are we to argue?  Gear used: 2009 Gibson Les Paul Traditional 2000s Gretsch 6122 Country Gentleman Stulce low-watt, EL84 head Marshall 2x12 cabinet Fender Blues Jr. III Sennheiser MD421 Sennheiser e906 Digitech Bad Monkey Tube Overdrive T.C.

  • Ep. 13: Bogner Burnley Distortion

    Ep. 13: Bogner Burnley Distortion

    25/04/2017 Duración: 51min

    For our lucky number 13th episode, we present you with the Bogner Burnley, the most \m/ distortion pedal ever made. With a Neve transformer, fancy LED flashing, and the world’s first fat switch that actually works, this thing sent us both on a journey of obnoxious transcendence through shred forrest. It's a long one, but we aren't apologizing. Bonus points: count how many times Chance says "juice" or "juicy" to discover the hidden codex.  Gear used:  2009 Gibson Les Paul Traditional 1995 Fender Stratocaster Special Stulce low-watt, EL84 head Marshall 2x12 cabinet Fender Blues Jr. III Sennheiser MD421 Sennheiser e906 Bogner Burnley Distortion Strymon Dig Delay
