You can hear the Lounsberry “Tall & Fat” pedal on the their album “Get To Steppin'”, set to release late this summer.
“Lounsberry’s ‘Tall & Fat’ helps give me that natural amp breakup at lower volumes. It crunches very sweetly without sounding too ‘pedal-y.’ With it I can get that Tweed like crunch out of most amps. Give me the ‘Tall & Fat”, a volume pedal, reverb and some tremolo and that’s my rig with the White Blinds.”
