Pedals and Effects: Dirt Pedals

Today on Pedals and Effects, we’re doing a dirt pedal shootout! We’ve been hella busy with our touring schedules, but we finally found the time to catch up with some new dirt/distortion pedals as well as ones we finally got around to checking out. We’ve got a great lineup today of Chase Bliss, JAM Pedals, Spiral Electric, and Death By Audio! It’s 2019, more and more dirt pedals are starting to have MIDI and expression options. It’s a very unique take on a staple in effects but, you never know if you can reinvent the wheel unless you try. Not quite a fuzz war, but you know how we roll at Pedals and Effects.

JAM Pedals: Red Muck Bass

JAM Pedals: Red Muck Bass

This past NAMM, we had the pleasure of meeting the crew behind JAM pedals! Word quickly spread through the convention center that Nick and I had to check out their booth ASAP. When we finally made it, the first thing that caught our eye was all the amazing hand painted artwork on their pedals. JAM pedals meticulously handcraft and paint each and every one of their pedals, and their lineup is magical. I was told that their “Red Muck Bass” would replace my Sovtek Big Fuzz, and well, they’re not wrong.

Gamechanger Audio: Plasma Pedal

Gamechanger Audio: Plasma Pedal

You want crazy? We got crazy. Straight out of Latvia, it’s the Gamechanger Audio Plasma Pedal! This might be one of the most unique distortion pedals we’ve ever encountered. It’s hard not to notice the vibrant electrical charges shooting through the Plasma Pedal’s tiny window, turns out there’s a whole lot more going on under the hood. Unlike typical distortion pedals it does not use transistors, or clipping diodes, but rather a unique process that converts your signal into electricity, then back out as sound. It’s a science experiment of a pedal and we love it. You have to hear it, to believe it!
