Sam grabbing some very tasty licks while demonstrating of the Dead Horse Overdrive MKIII
This is a quick video showing the sound differences between the Dead Horse Overdrive III, the Bulb Signature Overdrive, The Bulb Attack Overdrive and the Jeff Loomis Limited Overdrive from Pro Tone Pedals. The guitar player is Nao from the Japanese visual rock band Arlequin (アルルカン). The guitar was a Strictly 7 Guitar Solar7 and the amplifier was a Blackstar HT-5. The sound was taken from the build-in mic of the camera (Canon 60D).
Gord Olson has been using the Keith Merrow Overdrive (out of production, but sounds a lot like the Dead Horse) for some time now… here’s a poweramp comparison video he did a few months ago.
Notes from Gord:
I wanted to hear what kind of a difference there is between the power section of my 6505 (tube) head, and this very cool little ISP Stealth (solid state) amp that I recently picked up. I’m super impressed with the sound of the ISP, and was happy to find that it fit right into the back of my Kemper! I work for a company with a steel fab shop, so I designed a couple of brackets that attach to the Kemper, and keep the ISP secure in the back. Works perfectly!
In both examples, the signal goes through a Pro Tone Keith Merrow OD pedal and into the Kemper. From there it goes to one of the two amps, then into my Marshall 1960A cabinet with V30 speakers, and through a single Shure SM57 microphone.
Two guitar tracks, one on the left, and one on the right.
One of the questions we get regularly is ‘why make a signature pedal for people known for using digital amp simulations that have built in overdrives’. To answer this question we shot this quick and dirty video showing the tonal advantages of using a pedal over using the built in ‘overdrives’ in the digital solutions.…
Let’s talk about your standard overdrive pedal. These boxes can be tough to wrap your mind around at first, so let’s look at the basics of how to use an overdrive pedal.
If you’re not already- check us out on Facebook and Twitter! http://www.twitter.com/ProTonePedals http://www.facebook.com/protonepedals We’re seeing a surprising amount of 1st time pedal buyers swing by the Pro Tone website with questions regarding what pedals to buy, how to choose them and so on. So I thought I would write a few posts on the topic.…
