    REACTIVATOR by Hagerman Amps (pedal demo/review)

    I used the FM3 for effects and cab sims... I now realize why Hagerman Amps calls its latest true bypass pedal Reactivator – “it’s alive… it’s alive!” This is a low to moderate gain pedal, a two-transistor/two-triode overdrive, but its tube driven components maintain that ‘warm’ and realistic...

    Orange Bass Butler (demo/review)

    FM3 used for reverb and interface for this video demo (the last part, with guitar, uses the Herbert Diezel amp from the FM3): There are some well-received bass pedals and preamps on the market, and the Bass Butler by Orange ranks toward the top – and for good reason. If you want your bass tone...

    HEAVY pedal + FM3 (making hi-gain amps more brutal)

    All amps are from the FM3. I realize you can add an OD pedal from the FM3, but I like the quality and nature of the HEAVY pedal and how it interacts with the FM3:

    SP+ Overdrive (demo/review using the FM3)

    No affiliation to the company.... If you’re into overdrives, and pushing your amp to new levels of brilliance, TL Pedals’ SP+ JFET true bypass will not disappoint. The name of this pedal comes from another in the TL collection, the Silver Pony (which has a similar design/concept as the original...

    La Flaca by Pure Salem Guitars (demo/review with FM3 amps)

    There’s a reason why guitarist collect guitars, besides the novelty of doing so. Each has its own characteristics and each a unique tool to express one’s musical abilities. It’s not only the feel and look (which can affect a person’s mindset), but definitely the sound generated through the...

    METAL by Hagerman Amps (pedal demo using FM3)

    Hagerman is a solid pedal-builder/engineer, and often producing unique voicings when compared to its rivals. Its METAL pedal is no exception, although not a ‘modern’ hi-gain type pedal in the modern sense – rather, METAL is described as a distortion/fuzz, and that aspect comes through loud and...

    Soul Press II (review/demo with FM3)

    Soul Press II is a true bypass pedal and an upgrade from the original Soul Press, and with some significant changes. This pedal has Volume, Wah, an Expression out and a Volume/Wah combo. In the latter instance, the toe switch acts as a control between the Volume/Wah (shifting from one to the...

This company’s focus is on tone, while delivering something unique, and its current project is no exception – The Parabellum Drive (a collaboration with Dunwich Amps). It can hotrod a clean...
