You’ll find the Blackbird tube preamp in all the best places. Here’s one sitting pretty in David Gilmour’s studio around the time of Pink Floyd recording their latest album ‘The Endless River’ along with an Effectrode Tube-Vibe, PC-2A Compressor, Fire Bottle boost and Mercury fuzz. Phil Taylor (David’s long standing guitar tech) was involved in audio testing many Effectrode pedals, especially the Tube Drive, PC-2A and Fire Bottle. All Effectrode pedals go through an extremely intense evaluation process to make sure the tone and feel of each pedal is ‘spot-on’. Other guitar players who have provided their golden ears and invaluable feedback include Adrian Legg, John Verity and Paul Stacey (Oasis). These guitarists have made it possible for me to take Effectrode pedal designs closer to perfection than I ever could just by myself – thanks guys.
