Using Your Guitar Like A Synthesizer – Bill Ruppert’s Steel Drum Effect

Bill Ruppert is back with another one of his ‘use your guitar like a synthesizer’ Effectology demos.

In this episode, Ruppert uses his guitar with Electro-Harmonix effects pedals to create the sound of a Caribbean steel drum band.  Impressive as always!

You can get the pedal effect details at the EXH forum.

  1. Indeed! 'Twood be nice if they/he would go into more detail….

    'Tis nice to hear REAL music for a change on this site? You know-chord changes? Harmonic movement? Melody? What a concept?

  2. Pretty cool. But I have to say, I used to get a pretty convincing steel drum sound out of a Peavey ProFex and a Digitech GSP 2101 back in the early 90s.
