Heavy Guitar Tones With Rabea Massaad: What Can We Learn? – That Pedal Show

Rabea Massaad joins us to talk about how he creates his awesome heavy guitar tones.

Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.

Welcome to the show! This is the last pre-Coronavirus-lockdown show we filmed back in March. Our great friend Rabea Massaad had come to visit to do a pedalboard video, so we took the opportunity to film another one while he was with us.
It’s no secret that contemporary ‘heavy’ tones aren’t exactly a great strength of ours. That said, Dan especially has a great love for more progressive styles music and of course we’re both MASSIVE fans of Bea’s approach to music, guitar and all-round creativity.
What better excuse then to see what we can glean from him in a general chat about tooooaaaan, man?

If you’re surprised at the contrast of the mics at 53:50, so was I. Mick here. I asked Fraser to double check the audio/settings/EQ etc and the annotations are correct – the Sennheiser e906 dynamic is much less bright compared with the Sontronics ribbon. I’m going to assuming it’s either broken or very badly placed on the speaker! A 906 is normally waaaaaay brighter than that!

Enjoy the episode!
