Moving Forward...

Hello fellow Tone Freqs!!!
I know it's been a LONG while since the site has been updated. Work travel and running the Sorcerer Radio/Live365 internet radio station has been taking up a lot of time as of late. Not to mention the fact that my wife's cooking and website has been taking off and I've been really involved in making that a success. Did I mention I also performed with my old band the Everafters on Black Friday? Something had to give at some point.

That said I have not abandoned the site... in fact our Twitter feed is alive and well at @ToneFreqPodcast delivering mini-reviews and cool video demos that I find on youtube! Over the next few weeks I will also be redesigning the site and relaunching our podcast on iTunes. There were several interviews I conduced late summer/early fall that I will be releasing and I hope to make a nice long podcast every month, that's the goal.

At any rate thanks to those of you who still check out the page with my news feeds and Twitter updates.

Fulltone Mini Deja Vibe Pedal Shootout



The Fulltone Mini Dejavibe, an older, 2001 model, and a current Stereo model, played in MONO. Didn't expect there to be a big difference between the two, but guess what? There is! The current version is brighter and has a more rich harmonic flavor to it, and the older gold big box version is smoother and warmer. I like em' both...too bad I can't play the style of guitar that lends itself to demonstrating these killer stompboxes...oh well! I used a http://www.kingbeeguitars.com Relic Telecaster and a http://www.jaguaramplification.com Jaguar Twin Amplifier , 2x10 combo.

Crazy Week

Hey there Tone Freqs!
I hope everything is good where you are. I haven't updated the blog this week due to my crazy schedule as well as prepping for my Disney show on Sorcerer Radio. Please check back in later this weekend. I should have the podcast loaded by Monday as well. Thanks for your understanding!
