Eddie Kramer Tim Pierce Edstortion PhazeVibe Guitar Pedals

Eddie Kramer Edstortion PhazeVibe Guitar Pedals

Eddie Kramer came over for a visit and brought his Edstortion and PhazeVibe Guitar Pedals. Eddie Kramer brought his new Signature Stompbox Guitar Pedals over to my studio recently. He and his partner, Francesco Sondelli, who is the founder of F-pedals, are creating some great new products. The two pedals I tried were the Phazevibe and the Edstortion. I used my Nash Stratocaster, through my Divided by 13 RSA 23 head, recording through an SM 57 microphone. The mic went straight into a BAE mic pre and then through Apogee converters and into ProTools Eddie Kramer is a very […]

Veillette Guitars Tim Pierce

Veillette Guitars

Veillette Guitars Presentation of the Avante Gryphon, Merlin and Terz. I discovered Joe Veillette through my longtime association with producer Rob Cavallo. Rob has done extensive work with Dave Matthews, and Rob acquired a Gryphon after falling in love with Dave’s. I played a single strummed A minor chord on the Gryphon. The sound was so beautiful and unique that I immediately got on the phone and ordered one from Joe. The guitar took months to build, but was well worth the wait and I’ve used it constantly ever since. So, now Joe is making the Avante Gryphon. It’s […]

Wizard Modern Classic II

Wizard Modern Classic II Amp Catalinbread Echorec

A long time ago I fell in love with Wizard Amps they were somewhat of a rarity out here in LA but I always loved how they captured the sound of a Vintage Plexi Marshall. A couple of years ago I was able to buy one and the one I chose, was very traditional and very simple – It’s called the Modern Classic. The folks at Vintage King, (which is a an amazing store) asked me to do a video demo on an updated model of the one I have. I said yes and after I heard it, and […]

Tim Pierce Signature Overdrive Pedal from J. Rockett Audio

Tim Pierce Signature Rockett Overdrive

I’m very excited, the folks at Rockett Pedals have designed a dual overdrive pedal with my name on it!!! The pedal has two stages. The first stage is called power amp, it has one knob and is designed to emulate the power section of one of my lifetime favorite amplifiers – the Naylor SuperDrive 60. The second stage is a four knob distortion pedal, with enough tonal variation to enable the guitarist to find the “sweet spot”, no matter or what guitar and amp he or she is using. I just did a video that demonstrates the pedal which you can see […]

PRS HXDA Guitar Amps

PRS HXDA Guitar Amps

PRS HXDA Guitar Amps. PRS HXDA Amps – I haven’t known Paul Reed Smith that long, but we have become great friends. I invited him to a session three or four years ago, and he was so excited about the process of recording here in LA that we instantly started a dialogue and discussing instruments and amps. I had bought and sold a few PRS guitars in my time, and I was familiar with the products, how playable they were and how well they stayed in tune. He was embarking on a new mission to make the best sounding […]

Vemuram Pedals

Vemuram Guitar Pedals Demo

This is the newest Demo Video with Tim Demonstrating The Vemuram Pedal Line. Vemuram Pedals is a Japanese Company that is 100% hand built. Tim shows current 4 Vemuram pedals – The Karen, Jan Ray, Neoplex and Rage e. Vemuram Karen This has Marshall written all over it. Really nice and tight overdrive, without all the compression. Very harmonically rich as you turn the gain up. Think 50 watt Plexi/JTM 45 sounds. Vemuram Jan Ray This is my personal favorite. It sounds and reacts like a turned up blackface Fender amp. More specifically, a Super Reverb. This is a […]
