Nick demos the Modulate setting on the Boss RV-5 Reverb, and it sounds delicious. This is by far our favorite setting on this pedal, and where we feel it really shines. Perfect for swells and ambient sounds.
The RV-5 is a great sounding and very versatile reverb. In this demo, Nick walks through the Spring, Plate, Hall, Room, and Gate modes. In Part 2, we’ll show you the beautiful Modulate setting. Our favorite setting of these modes is the Hall setting, but they all sound pretty good.

Pickups: K&K Pure Western Mini pickups These are transducer pickups. They attach (via glue) right under the bridge of the guitar (on the inside of body […]
Most guitar players are crazy when it comes to gear, and I’m no different. I’m constantly buying/selling/trading/longing/hoping/etc. My acoustic setup has remained unchanged for a while now, and I’ve finally settled into an electric guitar rig that I like. I’m 100% a rhythm player, so I don’t have a lot of mod effects that would […]

Some quick spec’s Top: Solid Sitka Spruce Back/Sides: Solid East Indian Rosewood (3-piece back) Neck: Mahogany Fretboard/Bridge: Ebony Finish: Polished Gloss (though the consensus seems to be that it’s nitro lacquer) What I like: Sound/Tone It’s classic/iconic Martin all the way. Punchy and thick, yet balanced. This guitar really shines when you dig in with […]
