theGUITARaddict: Cycling distortion



This was yesterday’s setup; my PRS MT15 & the Tioga Road Cycling Distortion by Animals Pedal. I’m not trying to surpass any gain threshold here simply because the MT15 has loads on tap. The pedal’s job is to push it through at lower gain settings. When you pair up two devices with gain going at about 50% each, you’d hear some incredible saturation that’s missing if you were to employ only one distortion source. The light pickers among us would relish this as the instrument gets more sensitive to touch. The trade off here is of course extraneous noise generated by two gain sources so if you are not careful with your instrument handling, the set up will pick up every little contact & make it audible at the amp end. This is the reason why distortion / high gain freaks employ a noise gate in their set up as well.

If you are interested, Animals Pedal are available at Davis GMC
