I had to get the Daydream into my act. I use it on our cover of Band On The Run. I play the Linda McCartney 'synth licks' and use the DD clean for the first part and then drive it with my Cornish G2 clone for the more aggressive part. My band freaking loves this. And while I rarely get the accolades for my playing, this one has got other guitar players to come up and ask, 'What the hell was that!'Robert's pedals are ace. I use my Daydream constantly, both the regular modes as well as the six others in my prototype. Glitch, sample and hold, it's all useful!
Yeah Rockett pedals are ace - I love the Dude although I did just knock it off my board due to the purchase of an Effectrode Blackbird. I did a side by side and the Blackbird just had that extra special sauce. So my dirt is now made up of Cali 76 comp, Pigtronix Polysaturator, Effectrode Blackbird and Supro Drive (in that order) and I have never sounded better.Well PGS is closing. That is a shame, I just bought that Majestic from them like a month ago. They were always the fastest shipper compared to Prymaxe or RGS. They were also trustworthy.
I took advantage of their warehouse sale on Reverb and got a JHS Mini Foot Fuzz. I'm seeing it a lot on Insta so I thought I'd give it a try. Sounds pretty nasty. I'll be comparing it to my Walrus Audio Contraband, which is a similar vibe. I'm looking forward to squeezing it on the board.
In other news, Rockett is making the Animal again in a Tour Series size. They bashed the original saying they were never 100 percent happy with it and that this is a much improved version without a snarl on/off switch and that the gain range is increased to make up the difference. I don't think the original Animal is bad, if it's good enough for Keith Urban it can't suck lol.
Regardless, I'll be getting one. No release date yet. I looooove Rockett, they are my favorite dirt pedal builder at this point, their stuff have replaced my ODR-1 and Mostortion, so they can't be that bad as those pedals have been mainstays for years. I love the Rockaway, soooo versatile.
