Black Sabbath

OZZY and SABBATH are BACK!!!!

I went to the REUNION 1999 show in New York, it was awesome! Ozzy and his voice were in great shape, better than when I saw his solo band on his last tour. Tony Iommi now has another Tycobrahe para pedal, which I brought to him. Tony's sound was killer thanks to Mike Clement, his guitar tech - about the best guitar sound I have heard in a huge arena. Check them out on the OzzFest tour! I also saw them on the OZZfest tour in 2001 and they were still smokin! Also met up with him again on the Heaven and Hell tour with Dio in 2007 and brought him another TS9/808 as a backup for the one he had been using for several years.
Here's a small video clip from the 1999 Reunion show! (War Pigs)

Dan Spitz of Anthrax is having a lot of fun with our BICHORUS pedal.

Greg Martin of the Kentucky Headhunters has been one of my favorite guitarists since I saw him play at the Dallas guitar show years ago. Greg got one of my TS9/808 pedals and a modified fuzzface in April of 2001, and our Beano Boost in 2003. He also sent me his old TS-808 to fix up, and I fixed up three of his old Vox Clyde McCoy wahs.

Dave Malone of The Radiators has one of the best pedalboards around, with most of our pedals (of course) and gets some awesome tones for their Funky New Orleans Rock N' Roll!

Scott Henderson is one of the true tonemeisters of today's music, and uses a lot of pedals from aNaLoG.Man including our TS9/808, DS-1/Pro, and Beano Boost. Here is a cool video showing his rack with his TS9/808/Silver and SD9 mod in it, and at the end he also talks about the Beano Boost. It's the PART 1 INTRODUCTION video.

Jim Weider of the Jim Weider Band, guitarist from "The Band", is a regular at Analog Man. He's using a pair of true bypass boxes I built for him (one with pure silver wire!) and an NKT SUN FACE, a BICOMP, and a special TS9/808 made to sound like his original TS-808. Of course he's using the King Of Tone pedal which he helped design. He also has a cool Multivox full rotor that I fixed for him for his leslie sounds. I have a Jim Weider page on my web site for more info. He often plays in the Danbury area and at blues clubs all over the northeast, you have to check him out if you are into good tone and good playing. Also check out his CDs BIG FOOT, Remedy, Percolator, and Pulse..

Ronnie Montrose now has his RONNIELAND web site up. He has one of the first Captain Coconuts, and sure likes his Maestro PS-1As!!!! Keep on phasin' Ronnie!

MONSTER MAGNET completed a new album in the winter of 2003/2004! The last few years, they toured with Aerosmith, Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, etc etc etc. Check them out if you like real, heavy rock. Their CD Power Trip is KILLER! You probably have heard Space Lord on the radio or MTV.
See my Monster Magnet page for more info on this hot band who uses our TS-808/Silver mods and Teese wah mods. Phil is also using our Beano Boost and comprossors now.

Jeff Pevar is 1/3rd of CPR (with David Crosby). You may have seen them on tour or on TV. Jeff also plays in the CT/NY area when not on tour with CPR, and was touring with JAZZ IS DEAD in late 2002 (Jim Weider and I checked them out at the CHANCE in Poughkeepsie - what a player!!!!). Check out his sound and pedals! Jeff is one of the few, in addition to Monster Magnet and Adam Horovitz, to have experienced the aNaLoG.MaN collection/mess at our old location in person! Jeff uses our TS9/808 mods, DS-1/Pro mod, and a Bicomp which he has turned several friends onto (thanks Jeff!).

Nick Sterling is an amazing young up and coming guitarist. He helped to improve our Bichorus pedal when he bought one from us and found an issue. We'll see some more great playing from Nick in the future!

Chris Buono , up and coming NYC sideman and session guitarist, recently purchased not one, not two, but THREE BiCompRossors for his live and studio rigs. The first chance Chris got to use his new toy was a session with super-producer Neil Dorfsman (Sting, Paul McCartney, Dire Straits). Also, Chris recently hooked up with Analog Mike to teach a 2 hour seminar on pedals at the National Guitar Workshop in June 2003.

Scott Lerner from NJ is an awesome player who uses a bunch of analog man pedals along with his Baker Guitars and Fuchs amps for awesome tones! Scott features our Silver Mod TS9/808 and bicomp.

Flume from the DC area makes excellent use of some of our pedals (good samples of our chorus sound on their CD Note to Self!)

Athana : Fat beats and rhythmic guitar noises from Norway, featuring several of our pedals and mods. Thanks to Alf T. Hana for pushing us to offer the high cut mods several years ago. There is also a cool shot of him and his band on my analog man T SHIRT page.


 

Curtis Reid has a new (7/99) CD it is really cool! Instrumental Guitar with bass and drums, some tunes have shades of Eric Johnson, many progressive rock tastes (Crimson?).

Check out Tom Guerra's website. His 1999 CD Mambo Sons is available. The web site has some great Sound Samples (with Rick Derringer) of his STONES sounding, good old rock and roll.
