HANGING OUT WITH THE KILLERS

We had the pleasure of catching Jake Blanton of The Killers for their soundcheck at The Brixton Academy, London.

Jake's been using our Cali76 Compact Bass on tour and needed a couple of spares so we delivered them by hand and check out his impressive rig.

Check out the blog post to see what gear Jake is using on the road and read about us hanging with the band and watching the live show:

STEELY DAN GUITARISTS PAY HOMAGE TO WALTER BECKER

This fascinating article by +Billboard features a host of former Steely Dan guitarists sharing their experiences with founding member, Walter Becker, who was also an Origin Effects artist.

"My favorite Walter guitar playing was when the two of us would sit together for hours and jam on jazz standards, in the early '90s. Otherwise, when I later saw individual song player credits on Dan compilation records, I realized he had overdubbed bass on many of them. His bass playing was excellent." Dean Parks

AEROSMITH GUITARIST AND ORIGIN EFFECTS ARTIST, BRAD WHITFORD, CONFIRMS THAT THEY HAVE BEGUN RECORDING A "VERY ROCK N ROLL" TRACK

Cali76 user, Brad Whitford, has shattered rumours that +Aerosmith was ending their touring career by telling Billboard, “Hopefully there’s five more years – it’s got longer. We’re going to keep playing until we can’t play anymore.”

Whitford also lets slip about a new song which the Boston rockers have started recording “We actually did some recording while we were touring Europe, and we started recording a new song in the studio in London. The song is a musical idea of Joe Perry’s. We’re doing it very much like we did songs back when we started out. It’s very rock’n’roll.”

We will have to keep our ears pricked to hear whether Brad was using his Cali76-TX on this track! https://origineffects.com/portfolio-item/brad-whitford/

HEAR THE KILLER TONE JOEY LANDRETH GETS WHEN HE PLUGS INTO OUR VINTAGE FENDER AMPS

Last month +Origin Effects had the pleasure of loaning the lovely Dan and Mick from +That Pedal Show two of our very special vintage Fender amplifiers; a 1961 Fender Super and a 1966 Twin Reverb.

We sat in for the shoot and got to hear the incredible tone and playing from Joey Landreth in person. The room was thick with creamy tone and it seems like a long wait until we were able to hear this again! Joey + SlideRIG + Vintage Fender = Tone Heaven!
