We couldn’t help but notice how good this photo looked of the Pickboy Edge 1.14, along with some playing partners. These picks are a favorite of players who like to play for speed. Posted by @xaviergarth on Instagram.
About the Edge 1.14, Xavier says:
I feel like I found my “own perfect pick” 😉

Trey Xavier of Gear Gods contacted us about contributing some Mooer micro pedals for a “shoot-out” style review he was doing to build his “dream” fly rig pedalboard. We jumped at the opportunity and sent Trey a Baby Tuner, a Funky Monkey, a Hustle Drive, a Noise Killer, a Repeater, and a Tres Cab for the shoot out.
This week is the first installment of his shoot out. First up are the wah pedals. At the time of the review, we didn’t have a Wahter pedal so we sent Trey a Funky Monkey Autowah to use against the mini wah pedals from Dunlop, Morley, and Hotone. Even though the Funky Monkey does not have a rocker pedal it still compares well. Trey really likes the compact size, quality of sound, and options of the Funky Monkey. If you don’t use a wah that often the Funky Monkey saves quite a bit of space over even the smallest of the wah pedals and may be your best option.
Check out the video for the full test results and check back next week for the next installment.

This Mooer Mini Flight Rig was inspired my Michael Fenimore, one of our Mooer local artists. Neal really like Michael’s pedal selection and with the addition of the Mod Factory created a pedal board great for gigging or song writing. Click on the above video to watch Neal’s play through of the board. This board really has lots of possibilities.
This week Neal takes a look at some of Nate Lopez’ favorite Mooer pedals. Neal puts together the Soul Shiver, Trelicopter, Ninety Orange, Shimverb, and throws in the Micro Looper so you can the various effects in an impromtu composition of Neal’s. We were joking with Neal that he needed the Micro Looper to replicate Nate’s 8 string playing.
Mooer just released 2 new pedals : the Woodverb and the Varimolo. The Woodverb is a digital delay pedal design specifically for acoustic guitar players to retain the tone and warmth of an acoustic guitar. The Varimolo is a digital tremolo pedal normal, filter, and variable modes. The filter acts like an auto wah and the variable mode changes the rates of the tremolo.

Here’s a classic blues riff inspired by Stevie Ray Vaughan that will spice up any acoustic or electric blues jam. Since the riff is repeating you just need to learn it once to play the whole progression. Some signature SRV licks are taught that aren’t too difficult.
