Free The Tone SS-1V overdrive demo – with Free The Tone PA-1Qb bass EQ on the bass tracks. Playing my Tuttle Classic S, Berly Telecaster, Gibson ES335 and Yamaha JP2 6 string bass. Stunning high-end gear from Free The Tone. Enjoy! Thank you! RG
It is such a joy to support my friends in Japan on this bass demo. Bass is my primary instrument, not alot of folks know that as my video feed and online presence is mostly guitar. Free The Tone make very high-end Analog and Digital gear (Most often hybrid). Reminiscent of classic studio gear. Innovated and useful.
I feel grateful to be a part of their artist team. EQ may be the most relevant but underrated pedal for bass or guitar. This one is simply intuitively voiced and intuitively musical.
I have the pleasure of owning several TK Smith pickups and one of his Telecasters. Several months back TK sent me his Summertone pickups to try. They are a Bigbsy inspired design/tone that drop in a P90 Dog-Ear route. I have been waiting to find the right guitar to put them in and decided on a Baritone! This was not a drop-in! I had a luthier route the body and the pickguard to accommodate. The results were phenomenal. I wrote this little ditty below with the Summertones. It is an appropriate tune!
Had the great opportunity to throw down a few examples using the Carr Rambler. I had about 100 gigs with this amp this year, giving me many opportunities to get to know it. From Huge Tin Roofed Texas Dance halls to really small packed bars I was able to get absolutely killer tones from this amp. The quintessential gigging amp as it is know for. A Modern Classic!
I have recently had the privilege of working with Michael Tuttle Guitars as an artist. It is a real honor. Michael makes very high-end instruments. Classic, but refined. Known as one the best ‘fret’ men in the business. My own guitar was made to my specs and is a beautiful example of modern vintage. 2 tone burst Classic ‘S’ style with a humbucker in the bridge. A few touches like roasted neck and stainless frets are further examples on his exemplary luthiery.
I have a few video examples on the site and on my instagram page here: Rodney Gene Junior Instagram
