    Hi,

    I'm trying to figure out one last pedal one Brian's Cook pedal board I cannot Identify.
    He's starting to use lately an A/O Ultra.
    On the pic below, there is a TSVG boost, a Rat Tail.
    Could you please help me identify the pedal on the right of the Rat Tail?
    He's known to use a lot of Dwarfcraft, Fuzzrocious ect...

    I think someone may have already answered you, but in case not, that is a custom Dwarfcraft Eau Claire Thunder.

    What's custom about it? Just curious? Looks killer.

    Like he wanted less controls?

    2018* considering that the pedal didn’t exist in 2017 :).

    I’m not sure if Brian’s using the AOU always-on but I can ask!

    With a service like this, it's difficult to not fall in love with Darkglass in 2018 :)

    That's very nice offer from you! It would be good knowledge (and I believe good publicity too) to know how he's using it in his extensive pedal board, next to the RAT Fuzzrocious, Huge Way swollen pickle and ECT Dwarfcraft.

    Quote from Brian Cook Instagram "bubblegutz This thing smokes. Clarity and punch with a healthy dose of grit. Really loving the Alpha Omega Ultra preamp/distortion pedal by @darkglasselectronics"

    Thank you!

    Next time they play in Helsinki I'll see if we can shoot some videos, demos, interviews and rig rundowns.

    I find him and the band extremely interesting!

    On top left of the board? I think it's an Astrospurt Phaser.

    He wanted a smaller enclosure so we cut down the features for him. I can't remember if the second switch is feedback or the ToneBlast. I think it is feedback, so the knobs are Volume, Tone, Gain, and Feedback tune...probably. It's possible that it is the ToneBlast, though, in which case the knobs are V, G, T and Trim. Probably should have kept better track of our custom work over the years...lol.

    Everything else we set at a static value based on his preferences.

    99% the left one is a Source Audio After Shock (maybe not after all..), still not sure about the white pedal, 4 black pots, 1 white.

  16. Hm, with the 4 black knobs and 1 white that makes me think it's the EHX Mel9.

    Also the one on the left isn't clearly orange like the Aftershock in either picture. Could be the Source Audio reverb or tremolo though.
