Bucket Brigade (BOSS® DM-2)

Bucket Brigade, the Helix model of a BOSS® DM-2

Recorded using a Les Paul and a variation of the "Appetite 1/2 Step" patch available here on this site.

This is the remastered Helix model of the Boss DM-2 delay pedal. It has a great old school analog tone.

JOHNAMAYERTRIX

(Reposted with permission from AndrewUtz on CustomTone.com) A John Mayer Tone, referencing Slow Dancing In A Burning Room. In this patch I used some basic stuff that I know John has used (or the closest thing to it I could find). I know live he has used dumbles along with a fender bandmaster, so for this I used a split path and ran a Litigator and a Twin Reverb at the same time. As far as the cabs go I tried my best to match how I know that continuum was recorded, I typically use red wire IR's but for you guys I used the equivalent Helix cabs. I put a dual cab block of the same cab but one is mic'd with a 57 and the other a beyerdynamic 160 (he really used an M88). Looks like he also used U87 or 67 room mics but alas it wouldn't let me add in another cab block. To compensate for this I used a room reverb at the end of the chain. I also put the Spring reverb before the cabs to simulate the acutal outboard fender reverb tanks john has used in the past. This patch probably needs some tweaking to make it like whatever you like, but I definitely think this is a good starting point for a Mayer like tone.
