Tone. It’s what separates the guitarist from the herd and helps craft their unique sonic identity.
But with so many pedal options available, today’s tone landscape can be overwhelming to navigate. Pedal demonstration videos on the internet can help with achieving the desired tone—but these videos regularly neglect the most pressing question guitarists have when looking a pedal: what does it sound like with the rest of the band?
With Ephem-Aural’s Tone Guide 2022 Cassette Sampler, we hope to make it a little easier for a guitarist to buy with confidence.
Our engineers transformed some of the hottest pedal demonstration videos on the internet into complete songs, allowing guitarists to simultaneously learn about a pedal, hear the tone it produces, AND hear what it sounds like with a band.
We know that modern guitar music is more diverse than ever, so in creating Tone Guide 2022, we didn’t just stick to Rock. We made sure that the most exciting genres of music, both new and old, are represented: Blues, Rock, Blues-Rock, Funk, Heavy Metal, Electro- Bossa Nova, and New Wave are just a sample of the styles you will hear on Tone Guide 2022.
