Session Guitarist Tim Pierce Home Studio

Session Guitarist Tim Pierce Home Studio

Session Guitarist Tim Pierce and his Home Studio Setup. I look back on this Home Studio Video and I’m amazed how much time has passed, but I am also grateful for what I’ve been able to do on YouTube in the last year and a half. This was the first day I ever met Marty Schwartz. I had known Brett Papa and Brett convinced Marty to make the drive up here and do a Home Studio Video for YouTube. Marty and Brett were heroes of mine on YouTube and the fact that I made friends with them was sort of a dream come true. They have both helped me a lot. My Home Studio is a ready to go at a moments notice. It’s as simple as starting a car. When someone shows up to record we can easily be working within 5 to 10 minutes. I’m fortunate to have people like Ross Hogarth, Chris Lord-Algae, Glen Ballard, Jack Joseph Puig, Humberto Gatica and many other studio professionals come and record at my Home Studio. A lot of the gear is interchangeable these days. It seems like pedal and amp and guitar makers are all at such a high level at this point, that you can use a new Strat or a custom boutique Strat, a Boss or Strymon effect pedal or an old Bassman or a new Paul Reed Smith amp. All these things sound great whether they be vintage or modern. The Home Studio changes all the time and best thing to do is look at my newest videos to see what is currently on deck. I’m really looking forward to learning the Kemper profiler this year, and as always, my signature overdrive and boost pedal by J. Rockett Audio, is always patched in. I was using the…

Hello everybody and thanks so much for joining the website and subscribing to the newsletter!! We are giving away one of my Tim Pierce Overdrive Pedals!

Simply pull up my “Pharrell Williams Happy” video on YouTube (link below) – leave a comment in the comments section for the video (on YouTube) then click the Share Button and the Facebook icon – and you are automatically entered in the giveaway for a Tim Pierce Overdrive Pedal by J. Rockett Audio! The winner will be chosen from a random comment! Contest ends October 10th, 2014. I didn’t realize when I started out but, it turns out one of the greatest joys of doing these videos, is getting comments on YouTube. The “Happy” video is a little different for me. I broke away from classic rock for a second, and taught a lesson on the song “Happy” which was one of my favorite songs from last year. I also tried something else new and made it a dual lesson for both beginners and intermediate players. So I wanted to thank you all again for your support! See you soon and good luck! šŸ™‚ Tim…

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,Ā it has one knob and is designed to emulateĀ the power section of one of my lifetime favorite amplifiers – the Naylor SuperDrive 60. The second stageĀ 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 below. I deliberately set the amp to a very uninspired tone, basically about one on my divided by 13. This was on purpose to demonstrate the pedal,Ā and force it to do all the work. I have found in general, that overdrive pedalsĀ tend to blossom more, and sound better with single coil pickups.Ā But, in general single coil pickups sound more open and offer more dynamic expression than humbucking pickups. This pedal seems to really open up and also offer many more tonal variations with pickups likeĀ single coil fenders, P90s, and the Gretsch style pickups. That being said, I use my Les Paul in the video demonstration and the tones are great!! I wanted to offer many thanks to everyone at J. Rockett Audio…… Please check out the video hope you like it!!!!
