Resonator Pedal Pads

Resonator Pedal Pads


I recorded long droning notes with a slide on both a Dobro and Pedal Steel Guitar. I used an AKG 414 to close mic and also an old Fender Princeton amp, with a Keeley modded Tube Screamer. I do a lot of rootsy cinematic music and wanted some more rawness in some pads with hints of Americana sprinkled in. I created one Multi with everything for the grand effect, though the individual instruments are useful on their own.

I was going for a Lanois-esque kind of pad that would add some intrigue while keeping it very organic. Hope you find it useful!!

Subtle in a good way

Don’t expect instant Ry Cooder. These pedal pads are remarkably subtle, which also makes them flexible and easy to use. The emphasis may seem to be on the pad and pedal rather than the resonator, but with some experimentation it’s possible to create some striking atmospherics. I’ll definitely be using these more than once; they have that indefinable quality that lifts them above the often derogatory associations of a pad.
