To me Bill F. always seemed like a "mystery man" of sorts -- nice to get to know him a bit in this video.....
that interviewer was amazing. i think he wanted to eat bill more than talk to him. and that part where he awkwardly cradles the bottom of the pedal while bill is already holding it. . .classic.
Bill is much smaller than I thought he'd be. Maybe because the Centaur was so big
Wow, the size diff is like Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern on Home ALone.
interesting comments about buffered vs bypass
Seems like the evil genius type that would purposefully delay the rerelease of his new pedal so he could bank off of the high used prices of the old unit.
Maybe Bill used to be bigger, and put himself in a smaller enclosure just like the new pedal?
the guy with the mic is unnecessarily tall. there's no need for that...
thanks for posting this, i would have never sourced it otherwise!
I notice, a lot of the time, guys who obviously know better make decisions/statements that are over-simplified and aren't completely true because the general public is either unable or unwilling to understand the complex explanation.
True bypass gives you your pure tone. Nothing else does. What Bill says about cable capacitance is true...however, the problem is all but eliminated by keeping your cable runs short enough. How short? That depends on a lot of other factors. In short (no pun intended), if the Klon is the only pedal you're running through, and you have a long cable run back to your amp, buffering may indeed be the right choice. But if the Klon is followed by a pedal that is already buffered, buffering the output of the Klon as well makes no sense at all. Of course, if you have the Klon on all the time, it doesn't really matter. Very cool of him to give you the option.
Yes, these and many other ridiculous comments to follow. Keep em' coming.
Good interview, thanks for posting.
The interviewer made Bill look small.
heh, the interviewer called him "klon"
the only thing i got to know is that he is a shrimp
The interviewer reminds me of Dr. Steve Brule.
Check this if you want a few minutes of awkwardness.
that's exactly what i was thinking!
"I'm here with Klon to talk about. . .Klon, ya turkeys!"
So does this mean mass production, printed circuit board, and since it is so different from the original, the old ones will retain their value?
The older ones were often (if not always) tailored to what setup you planned to use the pedal with. Marshall stack, Fender combo, etc. Wondering what rig these mass-production pedals are designed to work best with, or if it's sort of one of those "in the middle" things.
His interviewing style seemed more like this:
