Black Fountain Delay Presale
PRESALE STARTING NOW!!! The Black Fountain reflects back to the days before digital delay, emulating the sounds of the famed and elusive “oil can delay” units. These units emphasized a chorus-like modulation on the repeats of the effect signal as well as a beautiful and warm repeat cycle. The Modern mode emulates the classic long delay “oil can” units such as the Morley EDL, Tel-Ray Model 10 and Fender Echo-Reverb. The Time and Repeat controls mimic the functions of the vintage units, while the Fluid control introduces modulation based on the characteristic “wobble” of the electrostatic delay platter. The Vintage mode is similar in function to the Modern mode, but has a grittier and gainier feel to the repeats. Both the Modern and Vintage mode have a delay time of 800 milliseconds. The Organ Tone mode is based on the Tel-Ray Deluxe Organ Tone, Fender Dimension IV and other short-delay “oil can” units. The vintage units had a fixed delay time of approximately 20 milliseconds, which is implemented here, but the Black Fountain goes above and beyond the original units by incorporating variable Rate and Depth controls for the modulation effect. In addition, the Mix control is capable of dialing a 100% wet signal so a vibrato effect may be produced. The Organ Tone mode also features a simple reverb the mimics the single-spring tank in the original Deluxe Organ Tone effect. The Organ Tone mode has a delay time of 211 milliseconds.
Really interested in this pedal. The clips sound great and it seems really useful. Might be my second delay. Seems like I’d get a lot of use out of it.

Anonymous: Ooh what's wrong with dads? Not fussed on them either way just curious
I just don’t like them, and I haven’t heard them play as good as people say they are. Saw them recently and I just wasn’t feeling them. ha

I don’t know how you guys feel about Dance Gavin Dance and that kind of post-hardcore and music like that, but the Secret Band full length fucking slays. haha

I think the Shoegazer can get a fair bit sputtier and “gross” in the good sense of how you want a fuzz to be nasty. I’m not so into those sounds, so I don’t need them. Kind of a different cup of tea, really.

So for my birthday today I took my pedalboard to a shop to play it through some amps.
I was really digging on the AC15. Those little bastards have SO much fucking low end. I was super surprised. Sounded great with everything I threw at it though. Definitely tempted by one.
I played a beautiful seafoam green strat and an incredible big bottom jazz Ibanez guitar. Shit was so sweet.
I then went and tried some prohibition style cocktails at a place in town. Good times.
I really want an AC15 or AC30 now though…

Just like Christianity had the birth of Jesus, inhabitants of the guitar world had the arrival of THE KLON; the physical incarnation of God, born of the virgin mojo, to return the people of Earth’s faith in creamy toanz.
Lord Klon quickly rose to fame among its early disciples, but was ridiculed and tormented by followers of the realism faith.
These rational thinkers could not comprehend Klon’s heavenly qualities, and they swiftly put Klon before a jury of the wise-men of forumisia. The elsuive Klon was nailed to a breadboard, probed and analized in attempt to transfer the magical power of Toan to Earthlings.
Klon became extinct, and ascended to heaven[ly status]. Thus the birth of Klon marks the end of the vintage testament of Gearism.

Idk if this is original or if he copied it, but it made me laugh a lot.

Anonymous: EP Booster and EM Drive in front of a Deluxe Reverb; in what order, and why?
*on that ep/em question, I use a G&L tele with a JB mini in the bridge and stock pickup in the neck.
This is kinda tough because if I had either I would probably use them for the same thing. To drive a pedal (probably my Musket) or at the end of my chain for a little grit and output before hitting my amp.
That said, try the EM closer to the beginning of your chain as normal drive and the EP booster as an always on boost at the end.
Or run the EP booster INTO the EM Drive. Or vice versa!
Just some suggestions to try out. There are no right or wrongs on this one. Whichever sounds best to you. So the best I could do is make some sound suggestions.
Best of luck, and cool rig, dude (or dudette?)

Yes, hello, it is I, Shelby, back again with TDH pedal boards. The top is Casey’s and the bottom is Rob’s! And I even got the nice crew dude to take one of the pics for me!

My good friend, Shelby, bringing in some updated pedalboards from the Dear Hunter. They stepped their game up like mad. Damn.
Makes me sad seeing a Panther on Rob’s board… but the Arc Effects stuff is cool and I love a Flint.
Casey’s board rules pretty hard, I can’t believe these dudes are using BigSkys and shit. Pretty huge compared to the boards I saw a few years ago.

Anonymous: Do you think those billy corgan pickups are really worth close to $300. Love my strat but it sounds like doodoo (I have '71 or '81 noiseless pickups in it)
No. And fuck Billy Corgan.
