This episode is sponsored by Walrus Audio. Check out their revisions for the Iron Horse v2. The updated features really maximize the flexibility of the pedal. This episode was also sponsored by Keeley Electronics. They’re about to release the Compressor Plus. Keeley was already one of the top names in pedal compression, and they just went PLUS. That’s awesome. Lastly (but not leastly), this episode was sponsored by Sinasoid. If you’re looking for a custom cable, look no further than Sinasoid.
