To those acquainted with rotating speakers the EHX Lester Gs range of features will be both familiar and a breath of fresh air. Switch between slow and fast rotation speeds by hitting the Speed/Brake switch once. Likewise slow the effect down to a full stop by holding the switch for more than half a second just as you would on the real thing. However the Lester provides modern versatility too with super-accurate control over the RPM of both the Slow and Fast spin rates as well as the magical Acceleration knob. This controls how quickly the Lester shifts between the two rates ranging from a near-instant switch to an atmospheric gradual modulation. For a final level of high-end functionality the Lester G also features an expression pedal input for on-the-fly trem speed swells. Complete compression Push the envelope. On their own the Lester G Deluxes regular controls add a stylish characterful tremolo effect to your guitar signal.

Guitarists looking for more out-there effects can jump from subtle to spanked compression in an instant simply by pressing the Gs Squash button for a huge range of compression effects. Behind the Balance knob An EQ with history. On a pedal with a stereo output one might expect the Balance knob to control the comparative strength of the left and right signals. So why does the Lesters Balance act as a sweet-sounding resonant EQ control? The answer lies in the construction of a Leslie rotating speaker. Leslies contain two speakers. A high-frequency horn which physically spins at the desired speed and a bass woofer speaker with rotating baffle in front of it to create its signature Leslie swirl. Recording engineers would mic up these two outputs separately and it is the precise treble/bass blend which the Lester Gs Balance knob controls. From crisp and crunchy highs when fully clockwise to smooth rounded lows at its minimum theres a world of timeless tone at your fingertips. Full stereo satisfaction One trick engineers use when recording a rotating speaker is to place two microphones at different points in the rotation then placing these to the left or the right of the listener for a mesmerising “ping-pong” effect. Thanks to the Lesters mono/stereo output connections you can recreate this easily by sending the left and right signals to two separate amps or to distinct recording inputs which can then be panned left or right.

  • EQ
  • While Ed Sheeran primarily relies on the natural sound of his acoustic guitar and vocals, he occasionally uses EQ (Equalization) to shape and enhance his tone during live performances or in the studio. EQ pedals or onboard preamps can allow him to adjust the frequency response of his guitar signal to suit the acoustics of different venues or to achieve specific tonal characteristics. Here’s how EQ might be utilized in Ed Sheeran’s setup:

    1. **Tonal Shaping**: EQ can be used to adjust the balance of frequencies in the guitar signal, allowing Ed Sheeran to shape his tone to his liking. For example, he might boost the midrange frequencies to bring out the warmth and presence of his acoustic guitar, or cut certain frequencies to reduce any harshness or mud in the sound.

    2. **Feedback Control**: In a live setting, EQ can help control feedback by notching out problematic frequencies that might cause the guitar signal to feed back through the amplification system. This can be particularly useful when performing in venues with challenging acoustics or high volume levels.

    3. **Room Correction**: In situations where the venue’s acoustics are less than ideal, EQ can be used to compensate for any deficiencies in the sound. By adjusting the EQ settings, Ed Sheeran can tailor the guitar tone to sound more balanced and natural, regardless of the room’s acoustic properties.

    4. **Matching Gear**: EQ can also be used to match the tone of Ed Sheeran’s guitar to the sound of other instruments or equipment in his setup. For example, he might adjust the EQ to complement the tonal characteristics of his vocal microphone or to blend seamlessly with backing tracks or other instruments.

    Overall, while EQ may not be a central component of Ed Sheeran’s guitar effects setup, it can still play a valuable role in shaping his tone and ensuring that he achieves the desired sound in different performance environments. Whether used subtly for tonal shaping or more aggressively for feedback control, EQ allows Ed Sheeran to tailor his guitar tone to suit his musical vision and performance needs.

  • Guitar Effect Pedal

  • Overdrive
  • An overdrive pedal is a type of guitar effects pedal that simulates the sound of a vintage tube amplifier pushed into overdrive or distortion. It adds warmth, richness, and harmonic complexity to the guitar signal, creating a smooth, saturated tone that ranges from mild grit to full-on distortion. Here’s how overdrive pedals work and some common features:

    1. **Gain**: The gain control adjusts the amount of overdrive or distortion applied to the guitar signal. Turning up the gain increases the intensity of the overdrive, while lowering it produces a cleaner, more transparent sound.

    2. **Level**: The level control adjusts the output volume of the pedal. This allows you to match the volume level of the overdriven signal with your clean signal or boost the overall volume for solos or lead lines.

    3. **Tone**: The tone control (sometimes labeled as “tone” or “EQ”) adjusts the frequency response of the overdriven signal. Turning it clockwise boosts the highs and cuts the lows, resulting in a brighter tone. Turning it counterclockwise boosts the lows and cuts the highs, producing a darker tone.

    4. **Drive (or Distortion)**: Some overdrive pedals feature a separate drive control, which determines the intensity of the overdrive effect independently of the gain control. This allows for more fine-tuned control over the amount of saturation and distortion in the tone.

    5. **True Bypass vs. Buffered Bypass**: Overdrive pedals may have either true bypass or buffered bypass circuits. True bypass preserves the guitar’s original tone when the pedal is turned off, while buffered bypass maintains signal integrity and prevents signal loss when the pedal is engaged.

    6. **Voicing Options**: Some overdrive pedals offer voicing options or switchable modes that allow you to tailor the character of the overdrive to suit your playing style or musical genre. This may include options for different clipping diodes, EQ curves, or saturation levels.

    7. **Stacking**: Overdrive pedals are often used in combination with other effects pedals, such as boost pedals, distortion pedals, or modulation effects. Stacking multiple overdrive pedals can create unique tonal textures and dynamic range, allowing for greater versatility and customization of your guitar tone.

    Overdrive pedals are widely used in various music genres, including blues, rock, country, and jazz. Guitarists use them to add warmth, grit, and character to their tone, whether they’re playing rhythm parts, lead lines, or solos. An overdrive pedal is a staple on many pedalboards, offering classic tones and timeless appeal for guitarists of all levels and styles.
