We met up with Tera Melos / Big Walnuts Yonder guitar wrangler Nick Reinhart at Juan Alderete’s 5 Starr Sound Labs to dig into a few of his favorite settings on the Bit Commander, Transmisser, and Avalanche Run.
As if having killer guitar chops weren’t enough, Reinhart has made a name for himself as a tone-tweaker conjuring expressive and bizarre sounds from any pedal he touches. Today is no different. Hovering above the Avalanche Run, flips the Mode switch to Reverse and turns down the delay Time for “a magical . . . sound” that’s more like an extraterrestrial ring modulator than any delay on this planet. Having found his sound, he then puts his looper to good use performing an improvised outer-space symphony that must be heard to be believed!
