A rare gear review from Larry….filled to the brim with brutal honesty, laughter and tears.

Special thank you to dearest James Hatem and the fine people at Roland for letting me try this cool new pedal…the RE-202.

Please note, this device has far more to offer than i glanced upon in this precursory perfunctory analysis, including a “warp” freak out mode that happens when you hold down the pedal, but i wasn’t emotionally ready to delve into all that in this video.

totally unrelated, these rug cleaning vids have at least temporarily taken the place of old NFL films in Larry's current youtube watch list

Homeskoolin “Room Service”

Chapters
00:00 - Noodling before a gig.


Notes
Hello all, sequestered in a hotel room on the road with no amp has always been a good Zen way for me to truly “get in touch” with the instrument.
Crude as it is, this is the shit that REALLY matters…because if this “direct connection” from your hands to the source ain’t right, well then whats the point of amplifying it?
