That Pedal Show – Thoughts On Low Volume

Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store https://www.thatpedalshowstore.com

In this episode we are looking at your options for low volume sounds: bedroom tones!
We choose four different routes to playing at low volumes, and endeavour to keep everything under 80dB (measured at around seven feet away from the amps).

We’re using a computer software approach with IK Multimedia Amplitube Max; a small digital modelling amp with the Yamaha THR10; plus a small and big amp on the end of a regular pedalboard. Obviously these aren’t the only four options, but it’s a start!

Enjoy…
