Hehe i know the fulltone OCD is an amazing pedal. In my opinion maybe the best overdrive on the market, but there has to be a reason for Pauls change, and i for one would love to hear it


At the VIP I asked him about not using the OCD, and his reply was something along the lines of:

"Oh man, I LOVE the OCD! Its awesome, but I found the Baja boosted the frequencies I wanted. As it's a bass pedal, it doesnt boost bass it boosts mids and uppers. I still use the OCD and love it and was really 50/50 about swapping to the Baja."

There you go, total paraphrase apart from the very first line, thats word-for-word.

Happy New Year!!!

Those sound bites were delicious! Agreed, Norwegian Cow. I found myself wishing the clip was 10 minutes long, not a minute and a half.

Here is today's contribution to PG's press/news (from me):

http://www.bravewords.com/news/103837

besides the blog updates.

Happy New Year indeed!
The first music in 2009 I heard was Eudaimonia Overture (from Belgium), last night about an hour after the New Year was ushered in, but hearing the snip from Hurry Up this morning was an additional pleasure.

The EQ pedal sounds very useful.

This is the first time I've seen this thread, and the pedal sounds GREAT. Cleans up really well, I'm impressed!

Hello!

I am proud to announce my first signature pedal, the DETOX EQ by H.B.E. (HomeBrew Electronics)

I've been using this pedal for the last few months and I am officially addicted to it.

Why an EQ? Here's a detailed answer:

I have always liked to get distortion by playing through a cranked-up tube amp.
I have always liked to get a clean sound by turning my guitar's volume knob down. This works really well with some guitars and not so well with others, depending on the pickups and electronics in the guitar. On my Spaceship One tour, my main guitar was an Ibanez Rocket Roll II (Flying V shaped) guitar with two humbuckers. This guitar sounds amazing when it's cranked up, but it doesn't get that sparkly clean sound like I can get from the pickups on a PGM (which has a single coil and a 5-way switch).

To solve this problem, I bought a Boss EQ pedal and used it to turn down the "muddy" frequencies as well as turning down the overall gain. The pedal became a virtual "clean channel" and was really useful for cleaning up my sound while performing live.

But the Boss EQ was hissy (even thought I wasn't boosting anything), and the frequencies weren't set as musically I would have liked.

Recently I have been using several pedals from H.B.E. and liked everything about them. So I contacted the people there to see if they would be interested in building the ultimate EQ pedal for me. And the DETOX EQ was born!

The DETOX EQ is noise-free and has very musically tuned EQ knobs. I used it to make subtle adjustments to my tone on the United States CD, and I've road tested it on my European tour. I love it!

(If you look at photos of my pedalboard, I'm still using my prototype which is a gray box with red tape on it. I got a new one from H.B.E. and let Craig Martini use it for his bass rig. That one is yellow. I'm going to switch to a new one when I get home!)

Anyway, whether you use the pedal to clean up, boost, or just tailor your tone, there is no EQ pedal that touches the DETOX in quality in tone. H.B.E. did an awesome job.

Check them out here: http://www.homebrewelectronics.com/signature.html

Thank you,

Paul

He uses a Fulltone OCD and one other different boost (can't remember the name)

Look at the gear thread sticky in the guitarist forums, all the answers are there :)

If you search for 'OCD settings' you should find the exact way Paul sets the pedal as i remember supernaught posting about it recently

You can also find his amp settings

Please use the search button as you've promised ;)

You're supposed to be able to order it from Homebrew, but if they are backordered until April... that's a problem!
It's cool that demand outstripped supply, but now it's a pain to wait for the new supply.

(edit: removing typo)
