Greg Howe: Hot Rock Licks by Greg Howe (DVD Audio, ) | eBay
A little unorthodox yes, but Carl was never one to back down from rofk challenge, nor one to think inside the box. So what is this crazy pedal? Well, at first glance it looks like many other Carl Martin pedals…there is a High Gain channel which has loads of bottom end and nice crisp highs, a very dynamic Crunch channel which emphasises the mids with very little compression, and of course that famous 12db Boost channel that we are all so familiar with.
Yes, you can use either the High Gain or Crunch channels on their own hkt they are awesome! By placing the High Gain first in the chain, you allow the Crunch voicing to overrule the High Gain while adding a few db to your volume. You lose some of the lows and highs, but this results in a focused and controlled grwg that cuts through the mix.
Of course you can add up to 12 db of clean Boost as well for meatier leads dripping with tone and sustain! Power consumption is a surprising mA. You should get down to your local guitar store and try a few of them, because they are some great sounding pedals at very smart price points. One that is going to get a lot of tone nuts jumping up and down for a go. Carl Martin has done just that for you.

This is not just a licke turn it on and turn it up magic box. That means you can run any combination of the three for a variety of tones. The Boost can be layered over either the Crunch or the High Gain, but even better still, you can turn on the Crunch and then layer the High Gain over the top of that, for a real meaty tone that pulls back on the high frequencies slightly and licjs loaded with character.
Then you can hoae the Boost on top again for that little extra push to have it jump out in the mix. Essentially, this is like having three great pedals crammed into one box, without the need for patch cables in between. Wow is all I can say, I cant even begin oicks do the sheer variety of sounds available in this box justice but I just pressed record and this is what came out!
Hopefully some of you lads and lassies will find it helping, but for what its worth just buy one! Two channels give a broad palette rovk dynamic distortion when used separately, and when combined together one gets a mid-heavy and slightly compressed sound that has a long sustain.
One can practically set the knobs on any given position and use the result as it is, except when turning the tone knob all the away down which is the only occasion I found a bit unpleasant. The boost function gives a nice lift for the signal, which helps to raise leads and solos above the rest of the rgeg mix. This brings more harmonics and gives some nice ring into the tone as well.
A full boost is not often required — with moderate amount of added gain one gets already a plenty of delicious sounds.
Played a gig with it last night. It works great with the Roadie. I swear I got more playing compliments last hpt than ever before.
The later really does cut through the mix because of the extra mid range on rofk crunch channel. The Lick Box is also very quiet, which as a single coil Strat player is critical.
Vintage Guitar USA Funk fusioneer Greg Howe makes his living traveling the globe blowing minds with his exciting mix of agile licks and wide interval achievement. He needed an effects pedal that was small enough to fit into his carry-on luggage, and could retain his sonic persona played eock mysterious backlines.
Plugged into an old Fender Pro Reverb, the Crunch channel was smoky with a beefy midrange and crispy bite.

The Tone knobs lickks not terribly complex, offer a usable range of colors. Switching to the High Gain channel produces cranked Joe Satriani meets Joe Bonamassa tones with copious harmonics, sustain, and notes that truly sing.
This is what they say.
