Buy Now: https://goo.gl/EV9oGR Welcome back to ProGuitarShop and ToneReport.com, this is the Ditto X4 from TC Electronic. When TC Electronic rolled out its no-nonsense Ditto looper, many players begged for the same simple platform with a host of features. The Ditto X4 was born of these requests and features a ton of live looping flexibility. The core of the Ditto X4 is made up of two independently footswitchable high quality loops, each with its own switch and five minutes of recording time. Players can then choose to run each loop in one of two modes. Serial mode lets players switch between loops one and two for some verse-chorus-verse action, and Sync mode activates both loops at once for complex passages and ambient licks. A dedicated stop footswitch halts both loops, and holding this swtich deletes them. One of seven effects can be used with the FX knob, with everything from half speed to reverse and fading effects, and each effect can be armed with the dedicated FX switch. Using TC's StarJam system, players can load pre-recorded loops from several famous artists, set the backing track level and jam along with them. As one might expect from an expansive looper, the Ditto X4 features true stereo ins and outs and MIDI compatibility for perfectly timed loops, and each Ditto X4 comes in a robust, stomp-proof enclosure with soft-touch true bypass switching.

The SDRUM (pronounced Strum) is the world’s first intelligent drum machine for guitarists, that puts the power of the skins in your hands. By entering a rudimentary beat using only your guitar strings, you can leave it to the SDRUM to generate complex rhythms and grooves, then store it to any one of 36 onboard song presets. Utilizing DigiTech’s BeatScratch technology, you can very quickly teach a foundational drum pattern to the SDRUM just by scratching (muted strumming) your guitar’s strings, and then the SDRUM does the rest by filling in the cracks with tasteful grooves complete with embellishments and accents. These high-quality, stereo drum loops are rich, full-sounding drum samples across five different kits. The SDRUM is compatible with DigiTech’s JamSync, which lets you synchronize the SDRUM with your JamMan looper for a full-fledged performance combo. The SDRUM also supports DigiTech’s FS3X footswitch for even more control, letting you control the tempo, fills and other parameters remotely. The SDRUM also features stereo mixer outs so you can send your drum-enhanced rig straight into the console, while your guitar goes right to your amp. Plus a couple soft-touch pads let you tap in the beat if you’re not playing a guitar, making the SDRUM a true performance device for players of all stripes.

The RAH pedal matches the girth and fuzzy qualities that you hear in the chorus of this tune but it also cleans up very well during the verse. Zep's live version spices up the two verse chords (A13 and E9) with some B string pulloffs, giving it a jangly sound. The other difference is as the chorus winds down where you hear Page doing a little country style bend over the F#,A, E progression. Finally, this tune ends with Page's staccato riff while Bonham bangs a gong! Enjoy your Riff of the Day guitar lesson.

Buy Dunlop Germanium Fuzz Face Mini Now: https://goo.gl/NHXgUA ZZ Top "Just Got Paid" guitar lesson. Today we're using a Dunlop Germanium Fuzz Face Mini for that greasy, Billy Gibbons tone. When playing live, the necessary slide parts are in Open E, so this version combines some studio guitar parts. The main riff is actually easily to play in Open E with everything hanging in the 3rd and 5th frets. The verse uses the open E chord and then a slow slide up to D. For the chorus (G-A), you can include the slide overdub with an octave higher for some bluesier sounds. Finally, the sag in the guitar tone of Just Got Paid really can be matched when you underpower the Fuzz Face Mini with either a 'dead' 9V battery or a variable power supply.

The main riff is based on a G octave and Jimmy keeps the strumming very loose to match the groove versus double strokes every time. The guitar tone in The Wanton Song is somehow rude, yet smooth with a touch of compression, a perfect fit for the Velvet Fuzz. Most fuzz pedals won't agree with diminished chords but the pedal's tight mode pushes through the jazzy Fm, Bdim7, Cm7, C#dim7 progression. The final part shows how the Velvet comes through clear even with a neck humbucker as this funkier section plays with some tricky accents/timing. Enjoy your riff of the day guitar lesson.

CMAT Mod Deluxe CompressorBuy Now: https://goo.gl/JRWsSB The Doors "Love Me Two Times" guitar lesson. Today we're using the CMAT Mods Deluxe Compressor to enhance the zesty Reverend P-90 pickups in the Sensei 290. During Robbie Krieger's short time with The Doors, he could be seen using an early transistor amp which was extremely loud and clean, so we chose a compressor with a tight, transparent sound without the common volume choke. The intro to Love Me Two Times can be confusing because of the slight variation of A,D,E in the second half of the riff. This changes to B,D,E as soon as the band joins in. There are also some nice major 7 chords that can help spice up your chord library. Lastly, you can notice Krieger's natural talent of filling in the rhythm that a bass player normally would, since The Doors was primarily guitar, organ, and drums.

Buy Now: https://goo.gl/vZN3jq This is the 30ms Double Tracker from Keeley Electronics. The 30ms takes us back to the time when tape was king of the studio and was used to liven up all instruments, including vocals. The 30ms stretches far beyond the capabilities of any tape machine, offering two main modes, via the DIP switches contained within the pedal, and three submodes for each. The stock mode works in mono or stereo to add dimension to anything you can throw at it, and it approaches chorus territory when the Tune is cranked up. One of the benefits of this default mode is the addition of an onboard Chamber Reverb, nicely complimenting its studio profile with a sound that goes back to Abbey Road. However, the meat of the 30ms is its Double Tracker Pro mode, which uses a TRS output cable to generate gobs of juicy musical interplay between two different amplifiers. In this Pro mode, the dry signal can be sent to one amplifier, and an 100 percent wet signal to the other, for true studio-grade double tracking effects. The three submodes are Dimension, which offers two tunable voices (+/- 30 cents), Slapback mode, which contains the dimension mode in addition to a slapback delay (Over 100ms), and 60's inspired Abbey Mode, consisting of one delayed voice with modulation controls. Like each Keeley pedal, the 30ms is exceptionally engineered and tuned with a golden ear in Oklahoma, USA.

The Catalinbread Echorec also has one important feature its analog counterpart didn't, a Delay Time control. Now, it's possible to achieve single, dual, triple and quadruple delay presets up to 1 second! A wide range tone control can either cut low end and race into screaming oscillation or produce a warm, bass boosted Swell that blurs the line between echo and reverb. Plus, Catalinbread have developed a dry signal path that recreates the sonic signature of the original tube Echorec, which can spice up your base tone in Buffered Trails mode or vanish with True Bypass.

The Rubberneck is an exhaustive analog delay with more features than most digital delays on the market. With a ton of non-standard controls, the Rubberneck rightfully seizes the analog delay crown, giving you features such as tap tempo effects loops and several others that are mostly foreign to analog delay. Starting out with an insane 1.5 seconds of all-analog delay time, the Rubberneck doubles and triples down on the time control by offering tap tempo with quarter, eighth and dotted eighth subdivisions. A handy tails toggle lets you select buffered bypass, true bypass or buffered kill-dry modes for you intrepid time travelers. Aside from standard delay knobs, the Rubberneck also offers a rich concentric modulation section that ranges from a light spackling of shimmer to a well-worn dilapidated tape machine. A Tone control lets you lighten or darken the repeats, taking them well beyond the murkiness of a standard analog delay, or to a bright set of digital-sounding repeats that still fall apart like any good analog delay. A Gain control lets you juice the Rubberneck's preamp, for some gently broken-up repeats or some fully-saturated tape machine overload. For those looking to depart from typical delay lines, the Rubberneck's namesake function stretches and contracts the repeat pitch and delay time at a speed you select with the Rubberneck Rate knob. And if that's not enough, the Rubberneck's Tempo switch doubles as a Regeneration control, for momentary bursts of self-oscillation send your tone into orbit.

Both Red and Green channels start with the 250 as their base, and then expands on them with some much-needed tweaks, such as increased bass response and stackability. The Red channel offers three clipping modes, and each imparts a unique characteristic to the drive. MOSFET mode offers a heavy compression with a tight crunch, and LED offers a loud, clean drive sound. N mode is a dual-purpose drive, offering everything from clean boost to a gnarly pure op-amp distortion. The Green channel also offers N mode, but also offers Silicon and Germanium modes. Silicon mode offers a tube-like breakup sound, where Germanium mode is a bit looser and softer with an added warmth. Of the two footswitches, one bypasses the entire pedal, while the other switches between Green and Red channels without any needless tapdancing.

The FreqOut is a natural feedback creator that lets you generate natural feedback without any noise complaints or hearing loss. While most feedback techniques require a ridiculous amount of distortion, the FreqOut works clean, at any volume and even without an amp in the room.

A handy Dry Kill toggle switch eliminates the dry signal for 100 percent pure feedback, which lets you sculpt the raw feedback with pedals for tons of extra textures. Two concentric knobs for Gain and Onset let you tailor the feedback to your needs, letting you adjust the flavor as well as the time it takes the feedback to get cooking. And just like all other DigiTech pedals, the FreqOut is housed in a rugged metal chassis that will last a lifetime of gigs.

The repeats are fine tuned to not lose control and there maximum setting and the reason is twofold: infinite repeats allow you to create complex soundscapes by layer licks or volume swells but it can also work in favor on the reverb side by increasing decay and complexity in the reverb tails. The Dispatch master is created by hand in Akron, Ohio and features an analog dry signal and true bypass switching. Power requirement: standard 9VDC adapter.

Buy Now: https://goo.gl/c3nxJW Welcome back to Proguitarshop.com, today we're looking at a real secret weapon, the Xotic Effects SP Compressor. Based on the beloved Ross circuit, this analog compressor promises to smooth the peaks and enhance the subtleties in a discreet manor. Part of the SP Compressor's success comes from a blend control, a clean signal mix which can preserve your guitar's unaffected attack and tone while the compressor takes care of the sustain and enhancements. Although compact, the Xotic SP compressor has 3 intensity settings which can go from subtle balancing to an intense squash. Plus, there are quite a few parameters to tweak with internal DIP switches; attack/release times change the character and aggressiveness of the compressor while hi cut and input pad allow tone shaping and compatibility with higher output pickups.

Buy Now: https://goo.gl/7k7bNU The Earthquaker Fuzz Master General is an update, improved version of the Ace Tone FM-2 Fuzz Master Professional, a vintage fuzz/octave pedal famous for its rowdy personality and tones that ranged from almost-clean to jar-full-of-angry-bees grind. Earthquaker's take on this circuit adds modern functionality to the venerable design, with enhanced output, lower noise, and a variable tone control that lets you dial in anything from scooped sub-sonic grunt, vicious treble sting, or anything in between. A three-way Voice toggle switches from unruly vintage germanium fuzz, to a tight and compressed silicon-based tone, to a diode-less clipping option that can generate nearly clean upper-octave sounds while playing up high on the guitar's neck pickup. Like all of Earthquaker's excellent devices, The Fuzz Master General is handmade in the one-and-only Akron, Ohio, and features industry standard 9V DC power, premium components, and rugged true bypass switching.

Buy Now: https://goo.gl/rr1LMx Welcome back to ProGuitarShop and ToneReport.com.Today, we're stretching the DOD Rubberneck Analog Delay to explore some of its more advanced features. The sonic palette of the Rubberneck is almost infinitely expandable thanks to a few key features. A single TRS jack effects loop lets you connect any number of pedals in the feedback path for mind-bending effects. Any pedals placed within this loop are applied only to the repeats, letting you apply octave, fuzz, reverb or whatever else, with each repeat reprocessed through the loop. Combining this with the Rubberneck alters the boundaries of delay itself, with the ability to stretch and contract effected repeats. The Rubberneck control lets you stretch up or down in pitch, depending on how far left or right of center you set the Rate control. The Rubberneck's Gain control isn't just for adding light grit, and with plenty of dirt on tap, you can drive your delay tones harder than some actual drive pedals, giving you sweet preamp breakup before the delay. Using the effects loop together with the Rubberneck control and the Gain knob transforms the Rubberneck from a delay pedal into a performance tool. You can also attach a DigiTech FS3X three-button footswitch for extra control action, such as the ability to instantly rubberize your signal, bypass the modulation, remote tap tempo or spiral your feedback out of control with a simple hold. These advanced features make the Rubberneck an instant classic and a must-have for your pedal library.

Utilizing a modern digital signal processing and modern oscillation circuitry The Rainbow creates some real time pitch shifting, but not in the way you are probably used to. The Rainbow Machine will put a new twist on your playing by adding polyphonic harmonies, wild pitch take offs and descends, chaos chorusing, pixie trails, and transformations before your very ears. With the ability to shift from a 4th down through a 3rd up (including a stop at every atonal station in between) the Rainbow Machine tracks perfectly up and down the neck without any of the typical glitch out. Need an accompanying octave with your harmonies? The Rainbow's got it, and we haven't even talked about the "Magic" yet. The Magic is the true soul of this effect with its ability to add "weirdness" where there was none before. If you need an actual technical description, it's a regeneration control that creates aliasing between a mix of the primary and secondary functions feeding back against each other. It has to be heard to be believed.
