Quote from: Curetastraphy on April 20, 2007, 03:37:53Does anybody now what pedals robert used for 'All Mine'...the one you can hear at the end of the song..example are 5.06 and 5.07...and the pedal he used for Voodoo Dolly?
Quote from: Descent on April 24, 2007, 01:00:03Impressive as always. 8)I thought the feedback on Voodoo Dolly and on Nightshift was done with the help of this tiny speaker (or something that looks like that to me, I don't know what it is on the video) that was standing in front of Robert Smith too ? Apparently, Robert just did what John Mc Geoch used to do on that song, same method/equipment I mean.

Quote from: strange_day on April 24, 2007, 01:47:08Most of that probably isnt available anymore though? unless via E-bay or something.
Quote from: strange_day on April 24, 2007, 01:47:08Ive always wondered waht that thing is Robert's messing with in Nocturne, some kind of small mixer? i really dont know, Steve Severin has one too though, which they use at the start of Helter Skelter, which also has that great feedback sound.

Quote from: Adlib on April 24, 2007, 12:10:47As for the Storm Distortion pedal, I've only seen it once on Ebay (the yellow model used by Robert by then) and I luckily bought it... Quite a crap pedal indeed, you can't be a winner everyday.

Quite a crap pedal indeed, you can't be a winner everyday. I manged to find one of these in a used music gear catalog many years ago. I agree that's it's something of a crap pedal. :roll:This was supposedly the distortion pedal Robert used in the late '70s. I can actually get something similar to the Object-It's Not You tone from it, but it's much thinner. So I'm convinced that Robert must have been using this in conjunction with the distortion from his amplifier. I've read that he was using a WEM combo amp back then, but the specific model was never mentioned. It's pretty hard tracking down a lot of that old gear. I mean, where on earth can you find a Woolworth's Top 20 guitar? I've never seen one in my life! About the re-issue pedals vs. the orginals, I don't have any experience with the MXR ones, but sometimes re-issues can be complete crap and inferior the originals. But I really don't want to start this debate either, as this can vary from product to product.But I will say that the Fender Jazzmaster guitar reissue from a few years ago is absolute shit. I had nothing but problems with it from day one and ended up selling it. The reissue is completely cheapened down and nothing like the originals, which are worth a small fortune these days. :twisted:
Quote from: Adlib on April 26, 2007, 17:58:54Now, compare the Jazzmaster with a Schecter... I can tell you the UltraCure is not a guitar that's made for me. Without touching it, just by looking at it, I know I would never buy one (and listening the results doesn't make want to investigate any further).Conclusion : what's good to Robert's ears is not anymore for mine...
