Pro Analog MkIII into Attenuated Deluxe Reverb (ZZ Top!)

Post by smogfalls » Wed Mar 18, 2009 1:17 pm

Hello,

I did this clip of the brilliant Pro Analog MkIII pedal the other day so I thought I may aswell put it up for people to hear as there aren't really any demos of this pedal out there. This time I’m using it rather differently to usual, it’s going into an already slightly overdriven amp (used my home made attenuator with the Deluxe Reverb), and I think it sounds great used like this.

I’ve set the MkIII like this; Level = 1 o’clock and Gain = 9 o’clock
And I’ve got the Deluxe Reverb (w/Cannabis Rex) set like this;
Volume = 8, Treble = 6, Bass = 2 (normal channel)

So, there’s a small amount of random noodling at the start, a bit without the MkIII on, then I kick it on at 15 seconds in. This is followed by an impromptu version of “Arrested for Driving While Blind” by ZZ Top...

I love the natural overdrive of the Deluxe Reverb. I was missing out for so long! I definitely recommend using an attenuator to all you Deluxe Reverb owners.... you’ll double the uses of this already excellent amp!
Let me know what you think.
Cheers,
Xan

Nice Xan! I ordered one (pre-paid that is) and I was supposed to get it MONTHS ago! If I ever fuckin' get it I guess I'll be very happy (based on your demo clip).

Ahh man, I feel for you there. I got mine second hand from a dude over on TGP after hearing a few bad things about Scotty's work ethics. Good thing is, all the people I've spoken to have eventually gotten their pedal, it just took some time.
It is an excellent fuzz though, I really do like it alot. It's been added to the list of about 7 pedals that I will never, ever sell. The others being;

* DAM 1966
* DAM Red Rooster
* DAM Black n Gold Meathead
* Skreddy Mayo
* Skreddy Screwdriver Deluxe
* Timmy

I can pretty well guarantee that you'll love the MkIII. :freakout:
