  • I have recently started recording my second album and have been experimenting with the Boss RC-505 on some of the material. What I like about this device is the ease of application of effects and the quality of them. I may upload an improvisation using only this device shortly as a demonstration.

  • 1.Remove dials, nuts and display as it helps to push through the pots when removing the internal boards.

    2.Unscrew the backplate and remove the protective plastic

    3. The power LED needs to be removed to gain full access so remove the screw holding it in (its brass coloured in my DD-3)

    4. The capacitor is soldered onto lugs 1 and 3 (outer two) of the effect level. (You can also solder the cap’ between the slider and ground if you wish instead)

    5. I have used a 0.068uf (68nf) capacitor for this job which provides a darker more analog-like sound for each repeat with a hi-cut filtering effect.

  • I decided to swap the stock speaker in my practice amp with this Celestion Super 8. When the stock speaker was de-soldered I decided to clip off the old speaker connections and use the bare wire. Keeping some sort of cloth between the speaker and the soldering points helped keep solder off the new speaker. This entire process took a little longer than expected and I needed to brush off some dirt from the connections afterwards but works fine now and most importantly, sounds much better.

  • This is a link to the ‘Guitar Music’ album on iTunes.

    I have also created 30 and 10 second edits available for commercial purposes (film, tv etc). Please contact me with any queries.

  • Tone Chasing & Sampling

    Started finding suitable guitar tones and sampling various synth’s such as the Nord Lead for my next album project today. Sampling is quite tedious so hopefully the sounds will be worth it!
