17 Jun That Perfect Couple – A Schaffer Replica Pedal & A Rock ‘n’ Roll Relics “Angus” Model (by Billy Rowe)
after long months of silence (sorry!) I got to do two videos in a row.
And I would do far more if I had the time. Hopefully later. But I really – we really – wanted to get this out.
Great guitar, this Rock ‘n’ Roll Relics. Why, you ask? With all the vintage ones you have… here’s the answer.
I don’t like new, usually. New sounds like new. Plasticky, especially in the case of Gibson co. There are exceptions of course. Plus… expensive, especially if you go custom shop.
Well with Billy Rowe is not really the case. He gives you a guitar like the one you want, the way you want it. And it won’t neither look nor sound like it is new. It does feel and sound like vintage.
Can’t take my eyes off it either… nice to have in my hands and play some. Plays great. Not even plek’d! Just like it came to me from Billy, but set up by me (I like it super low action, just like I think Angus does and always did).
It was played on one of my three 1970s Marshall 2203s. I had them all brought back to original, stock sound (much better).
Settings were presence 0, bass 7, mids 3, treble 5, master volume 7 and pre-amp volume 4, until I brought it up to 7 for “Walk All Over You”. Then left it there for subsequent few riffs.
Microphone is the now trusty (and way cheaper) Peluso P67, and incredible clone of the Neumann U67. Really it’s got the same character of it!
