Hors d'Oeuvre serves up the dirtiest DB-01 (no talking)

video upload by Richard DeHove

"The Fairfield Circuitry Hors d'Oeuvre pedal is a feedback device. It will act as a sort of distortion by itself but where it shines is with another pedal in its send and return loop. Here I have an MXR Phase-95 followed by a Vahlbruch delay in the loop. The DB-01 is initially running through the Boss GEB-7 EQ pedal, then into the Hors d'Oeuvre.

There are no other effects or processing other than a limiter on the output and a little volume balancing to avoid anyone having to ride the volume knob. The Hors d'Oeuvre is quite sensitive and small adjustments in feedback or phase position can make a big difference to the sound.

I teamed the Hors d'Oeuvre with a couple of other pedals but it definitely seemed to work better with analog devices. For example, a cheap digital reverb I tried gave nothing but painful squeals.
