Just Nick: Dusky Electronics More Me Boost

A deliciously colored boost that adds just the right amount of mids for extra delicious drive from your amp, or just a fatter, more sparkling clean tone. Perfect

Just Nick: EarthQuaker Devices Sea Machine Chorus

A chorus of stunning versatility that combines a very rich chorusing with clarity that makes it easy to use with distortions and fuzzes. Fantastic for everything from classic chorus and rotating speaker sounds to all kinds of odd wobbly and vibey ambient sounds.

Just Nick: Red Panda Bitmap bitcrusher

A stunning array of sounds created by manipulating the bit resolution and sampling rate of A/D/A conversion. Distortions, ring mod-like sounds, complex harmonic interactions and subtle haloes, it’s all in this box. You can also control the sampling rate with a standard expression pedal and/or modulate the sampling rate according to three wave shapes. Unique, powerful and forward looking! Input level switch makes the pedal easy to use with different pickups, keyboards, bass, drum machines, whatever! Demonstrated here by itself and with a Red Panda Context reverb and an EMMA Reez distortion pedal.

Just Nick: Stutter-lite Tremolo – SolidGoldFX

A super-sweet sounding all-analog trem reminiscent of the bias-varying trems on some of the most sought after brownface and blackface amps. Swampy and visceral, but also sharp enough at higher depth settings to work brilliantly with fuzz, OD and distortion. Enough output with the volume knob up to overdrive your amp! Great range of sounds in a small package.

Just Nick: Dusky Electronics D₂O 32-Watt 6L6 Head

Just Nick with two videos featuring the Dusky Electronics D₂O 32-Watt 6L6 Head.  The first is a straight-ahead demo of the amp.  The 2nd gives you an idea of how well it works as a pedal platform.

A totally original, ultra-toneful 2x6L6 cathode biased head. James-type tone stack, Valco-type inverter, Vox-type Cut control, 6SL7 preamp tubes, 8-watt low power setting–it all adds up to the perfect clean pedal-platform or low wattage raging monster. Does everything Just Nick needs, and works great as a bass amp too! Grab one now–you’ll thank me later.


In this video we’ll look at how and why the D₂O excels as a clean (and dirty!) platform to combine with any type of pedal for unlimited sounds and volume levels.

Just Nick: Topanga Spring Reverb – Catalinbread

State of the art stompbox emulation of a vintage outboard tube-driven reverb tank. Classic surf sounds, subtle combo sounds and massive, dark ambiance. The dynamics, “splash and drip” are just right–authentic but not exaggerated. Flexible enough to work well in any genre and with any rig.

Curtis Kent: Lightspeed Organic Overdrive – Greer Amps

Lightspeed Organic Overdrive – Greer Amps

This is a demo of the Lightspeed Organic Overdrive – Greer Amps.

http://www.greeramps.com/collections/drive/products/lightspeed

From their Website:
“The Lightspeed Organic Overdrive is a very natural sounding overdrive. Why “organic”? Well, simply put, it’s the clearest, most natural feeling, and best overdrive we’ve heard for the player looking for a natural drive tone. Blending with the tone of the guitar and amplifier, this pedal has rich harmonics and complex but smooth clipping. The Lightspeed Overdrive is sensitive to pick attack and has a different “feel” than other overdrives. The Lightspeed can be set to be “transparent,” but can also drive your signal to the edge.”

 

Curtis Kent is a Canadian musician, based in Hamilton, Ontario. He is a singer, drummer, guitar player and a worship leader. He has had the honor of singing and playing with some incredible musicians throughout Canada and the United States. In addition to the previously mentioned, Curtis has a growing number of followers as his simple “every-man” approach to demoing guitar related products has become useful and popular on his Youtube channel.
