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: 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.

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.
