Just thought I would pose an interesting question. Sunday, I was doing some sweet, sweet volume swells. Then, in the middle of a swell: “BWAANG – ANG- ANG-ang- ang…” The volume pedal broke and the delay echoed my note, but not as smooth as it would’ve been.
I decided to switch to a light tremolo with delay to float in the background as a pad. It worked, but not exactly as the volume swell would’ve done. But that’s okay… sometimes you have to make do in a cinch!
Have you ever had a pedal die on you during a middle of a performance? What happened, and what did you do?
On to repair my Ernie Ball VP jr!
