I love tinkering and building and overall messing around with electronics. As soon as I feel like I understand something, I’m usually reminded hard.. that I have a long ways to go, and that is the fun/challenging part of it, and why I think it interests me so much. Because of this interest, I have such an appreciation for other builders, especially when I can relate to their struggles. Be it, finding that circuit/tone in their head, or struggling with the business side of things, etc. At the end of the day we’re all a bunch of nerds in the basement sucking flux fumes all day (or night) trying to make a go with something we like to do.
Now, I’ve mentioned and featured Knobs multiple times. I LOVE their demos. They’re weird. They’re quirky. They’re artistic. And because of that, you can get a glimmer of a pedal potential instead of hearing rock licks. But both types of demos have their place. Both styles should be watched to really get a feel for your next potential pedal purchase.
I was really excited (and hoping) to see a new series (knobs.. correct me if I’m wrong about the series) called Designing Disaster. On this particular video, they posted a video about Industrialectric (Toronto, Canada), which is a new company for me, but I’m SO glad that I saw this. I love how we get to hear the owner/operator of Industrialectric, Andrew Ferrari, talk about how he seeks the sound he’s searching for. I love it.
So, that video was cool.. but.. I was sort of blown away by Rm-1N pedal that was featured in this video. I’ve been wanting a fuzz / crazy reverb for myself.. and wow! I’m very interested in this.. so Knobs.. thank you again.
