Words about music (526): Hank Marvin

I’ve tried several pedals over the years. My first was a DeArmond tone and volume pedal – straight up and down was the volume, side to side the tone. Swing to the left and you’ve taken all the top off, to the right and take all the bass end off, and by doing a circular motion with the foot, coming from a bit more bass heavy, top light, not anywhere close to a wah-wah, but just starting with the tone you’re finishing on, gives you a sort of ‘mwah, mwah’, quite a nice effect.
