Mind Bender Chorus

I recently got the BBE mindbender chorus vibrato pedal. It is a really cool effect pedal it combines the boss vibrato and way huge blue hippo chorus both of which I believe no longer exist. It is a very intense pedal. Based on my last post you can see I like pedal that have setting where they go bonkers. The crazy part about this one is again if you set the depth and the rate all the way up it sounds completely unrecognizable in chorus mode. The pitch varies so much you can’t really tell what you are playing.  It also have usable and practical settings. If you keep the depth and rate lower you can get a good Pretenders chorus. My favorite part is the shimmery sound that you get with the delay pedal you get a nice multiplicative sound. After playing through just an amp for so long i am really starting to appreciate effects.

As of now, my pedal count is 5. I have an MXR dyna comp compressor, Way Huge Aqua Puss, BBE Mind Bender, Boss Blues Driver and Danelectro FAB Distortion. Most of them are colored blue. I would rather it be more multicolored but I can always paint them. One thing I noticed it that my overdrive has to go after the compressor if i use it. I think that is pretty standard, but I just wanted to put out there. Also I usually don’t use them together.

Anyways, that is where I am pedal wise.


Analog Delay – AquaPuss

I have been looking a lot at delay, reverb and echo pedals, so I picked up this one recently. One reason I have been looking for delay/reverb pedals is because my amp has no reverb. There is an effects loop which is cool, and its cool to switch between putting the pedals in front and after the pre-amp. I got the aqua puss delay, it is a lot of fun. It only has 300 millisecond of delay, which is okay for me, I usually just want slap back or a little bit more echo in my delay so this wasn’t a problem. First thing I like about it, analog. I really like analog. I have been getting rid of all of my digital effects. Of course its the warmth that’s why everyone likes analog. Second, Self oscillating freak out mode and third the tone.  Freak out modes comes when you turn the feedback all the way up and the blend all the way up the you mess around with the delay. I am really happy with this pedal and I recommend it to anyone who wants an analog delay. I looked at the MXR carbon copy too its a good pedal. Also all of my pedals so far have come from Dunlop or danelectro (but I got that one for free). In the future I am planning on looking at Boss and Electro-Harmonix.
